    Wow! I didn't know all the science behind it. I find using a coffee press over paper filtered makes for a better cup.

    I miss sitting in a cafe with a nice cup!

    Time for my 5th cup of tea now

    Did you spot the one from the guy who was too shy to tell his doctor that he only gets horny 3 times a week. Instead, he posted about it on the internet to keep it secret.
    You can imagine my reply. :D:D:D

    The Dutch make coffee the wrong way. They call it koffee verkeerd. Weird!

    I had some a little later than usual today. You have to make sure you're getting the freshest brew any time after 05:00... If you don't mention it, sometimes there's a batch that's burnt. Burnt coffee just fails. :)

    One of my favourites is the old liquid Camp Coffee, an essence of coffee and chicory...... I believe that it originated in India.
    My current stock is 7 years out of date, but I can't taste the difference....... At least it is covid free (I hope).

    I drink it in the summer, mixed in cold milk with some added ice..... I have even been known to add a tot of Vlad's favourite brandy from time to time. :):):)

    My dad would drink something similar, he was fond of all things British and the Indian Campaign, etc... but anyway, his stuff came from Louisiana and had chicory in it... can't say the rest of the family went for that flavor... but each to his own, they say :)

    Before coffee became popular in the UK and before the introduction of powdered (then freeze dried) coffee, almost everyone drank this as their coffee.
    The UK had Bev as their brand, but as coffee became more popular it disappeared.

    I assume that Camp is imported, I may be wrong. It is not sold retail in most shops, so I have to buy it commercially. It's primary use is in commercial bakery to produce coffee flavoured cakes and icings.

    From Wikipedia:

    Camp Coffee is a concentrated syrup which is flavored with coffee and chicory, first produced in 1876by Paterson & Sons Ltd, in Glasgow.

    In 1974, Dennis Jenks merged his business with Paterson to form Paterson Jenks. In 1984, Paterson Jenks plc was bought by McCormick & Company. McCormick UK Ltd assimilated Paterson Jenks into the Schwartz brand. Camp is now produced in Paisley, Renfrewshire.

    The current ingredients of Camp Chicory & Coffee are sugar, water, chicory extract (25%) and dried coffee extract (4%). Camp is a dark brown, syrupy liquid. It has a smooth flavour of chicory and coffee but with a very sweet, predominantly chicory aftertaste.

    Camp is generally used by mixing with hot water or with warm milk in much the same way as cocoa, or added to cold milk and ice to make iced coffee. It is commonly found in the baking aisles of supermarkets because it is also used as an ingredient in coffee cakes and other confectionery.

    Fascinating!

    I can never complain that HF is not educational when you (and a few other members) are around. :)

    I will have to take a better look in the shops in the future.
    The last time that I wanted to place an order, the smallest size that our supplier could deliver was a 25 litre drum. :D

    I have just found the original UK brand.
    It was supplied by Joe Lyons, but has been discontinued.
    I suspect that it was made by the company up in Scotland and supplied under their own brand for marketing reason.
    Household names such as Lyons were often used by other companies purely because they had the national distribution facilities that the manufacturer did not.
