  1. Food and water
    Anyone treid this? How does it compare to traditional coffee? Is it Folgers? Eight O'Clock? Black Rifle? Chock Full O'Nasty? Is it good black or only with cream/sugar? It's on sale and I might get some, but the website had no reviews for it. I did find some reviews elsewhere on the web, and...

    We recently moved and our new areas closest grocery store is an Always-Save. I had never shopped there before. Its my favorite store now. It took me a few trips to get used to the layout and most especially to the store brands. In just a few trips, we found the store brands to be better than...

    The following recipe is a gem(as in i wish i could swallow diamonds to cut out this horrible taste.) I have made this once, and no matter what i did to doctor it up (milk, sugar, coffeemate etc) it was hardcore bitter. But it is a fall back when you dont have the beans. Acorn coffee For acorn...

    One of my sons has been doing this so we dusted off the old air popper (the new ones are not supposed to get hot enough) We have a Presto, which is the one I have seen recommended. I saw a post that suggested getting the beans from Costco...

    I was recently searching online for a cheap, easy, portable way to make a single cup of coffee when I came across the Java Wand. (can also be used with tea) It seems to be getting good reviews. Have any of you ever used this product or something similar?

    I can't imagine living without coffee after a SHTF event, I have about 40lbs of Folgers canned grounds (I actually drink starbucks ground coffee at home) but I am wondering if I could can my own coffee....or maybe can espresso and use it for making coffee down the road...kind of like a coffee...

    Put up a few things in mylar zip bags today. First time I've used the zip locks. Be sure to get the "dust" from things like oatmeal from where you make your seal. Same with standard mylar.

    As I am sitting here watching the science channel at 1am, the show 'How do they do it' just showed the decaffeination process for coffee beans. A byproduct of decaffeination is pure caffeine crystals used to make energy drinks and caffeine pills... which got me thinking. I was thinking...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Let me start my admitting that I'm a gadget junkie, and that a lot of my preps are intended to let me maintain my current lifestyle as long as possible so I can pretend that everything is just fine and there is no need to panic. I generally make my morning coffee using an electric auto drip...

    Greetings! Every once in a while, I see these "survivalist" cans of Costa Rican canned green coffee beans. Ok, so I pay about $80 bucks (not to mention some paying for some hefty shipping charges). I thought to myself-why can't I do it (in the spirit of DIY). Ok, it can be easily done...
  11. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Back in February I applied for a community garden plot, Friday evening I got a call from the lady in charge to let me know they had a plot available for me (I was on a waiting list). I met with her yesterday afternoon to complete the process, tour the gardens and explore my new plot. I plan to...

    I did a board search and didn't get a single hit on tea. What I would like to know does anyone make their own tea bags? Basically what I would like to do is make up individual coffee bags that could be brewed in a canteen cup. This would be cheaper then buying the individual packs. Also you...

    I have wanted a hand cranked coffee grinder since I was a little girl and used to play with the old broken one out at the farm. I have no idea why...hehe However, as a grown up I have really fallen in love with coffee and consider it one of life's little pleasures. I found a hand grinder on...
