Hot Fudge

Popcorn is one of the world's favorite snacks. And guess what? Most of the popcorn in the world is grown right here in the good old U.S.A. In 2001 alone, the U.S. exported 229 million pounds of popcorn!

Popcorn is a source of fiber, also known as roughage. Popcorn is low in calories: 31 - 55 per cup of unbuttered, 133 calories lightly buttered.

Popcorn is sugar free and fat free, yet has energy-producing carbohydrates. It's great for between meal snacks as it does not overfill you or spoil your appetite. And did you know that there are dozens of ways to make popcorn other than just plain popped?

There is a myriad of ways to brew your favorite coffee and for the most part it all begins with a simple introduction: Know Thyself. Are you after a thick silty morning mug? A thinner brighter brew? A full bodied but smooth sensation? Once you have this part down, you’re ready for the facts.

About 70% of the coffee made in this country is brewed with paper filters, a method that produces what some refer to as the classic American style: light-bodied and clear, free of oil or sediment. Due to the popularity of the drip method, the brewers out there are constantly being improved. Gone are the accidents, the errant grinds, the unpredictable water temperatures.

One improvement is the “gold” filter which allows more oils and organic compounds to get into your cup. With a washable filter you eliminate the slight papery taste due to the disposables, and you get a fuller-bodied brew.

With an auto drip brewer you can usually get peak performance with even the most inexpensive of machines. Any more money you spend will go towards whatever bells and whistles fit your fancy. Of course, we at GMCR have our preferences:

Developed in Italy in the 1930s, the coffee press is most often associated with France and most commonly known as the “French Press.” Its sophisticated design belies the simplicity of the concept - manual filtration. The coffee press itself looks like an elegant beer mug wearing a cap. Coffee and water are added to the glass and allowed to sit for around four minutes depending on taste. Finally a plunger (a mesh filter on a stick) is pushed from the top of the mixture to the bottom, pushing the grounds to the base of the contraption and readying the clarified coffee for pouring. The result: A much heavier, grittier, richer taste than the above-described creation. This difference is due to the presence of sediments, oils, and a gelatinous substance called colloids, most of which are eliminated in the drip method. Coffee press users: Make sure to grind your coffee on a course setting as even the biggest grounds have been known to find their way through this filter. Coffee press novices: Here are some suggestions.

Also known as a stovetop espresso maker, the modest metal moka pot creates a thick dense brew that rivals the real stuff. The moka pot consists of two reservoirs and a filter that separates them. Water is poured into the bottom bucket, coffee grounds are spooned into the filter basket, and steam-produced air pressure forces the not-quite-boiling water through the coffee and up into the top reservoir. Presto, a perfect little cup. Our experts suggest using finely ground beans for this one.

GMCR offers:
Bodum Mocca Pot


No, this is not a nightmare; you are not back in your high school chemistry lab. This crazy contraption is actually a coffee brewer, and a good one at that. Similar in concept to the moka pot, the vacuum pot consists of two glass globes that attach to either side of a filter. Water is poured into the lower globe, the lower globe is set on the stove. As in the moka pot, the increased air pressure (see? chemistry class was relevant!) forces water to escape through a tube, through the filter, and into the upper compartment. Hot coffee then cools and is sucked back down to the bottom globe via yet another imbalance of air pressure. No papery taste, rich but without the sediment of the french press.

As its Italian name implies, Espresso is pressed coffee. Even if you are loyal to your drip brewer, you have no doubt seen the giant espresso machines in coffee houses, the tampded-down grounds, the slow trickle of the dark rich liquid into delightfully delicate receptacles. You have heard the hiss of steam as it makes the coffee and is used to steam the milk, and you have smelled the luxurious aroma. This is espresso, and to many people, having a machine in the house that will create this thick, dark, “crema”-topped coffee is well worth the effort and expense.

What the espresso machine basically does is force water through a compacted cake of finely ground coffee with pressure and heat high enough to emulsify the oils and organic compounds that are left out of regular gravity-brewed coffee. Beans should be blended especially, roasted accordingly, and ground into a fine powder.

The Coffee Tip of the Day is:

Never store your coffee in the refrigerator. Coffee will absorb flavors and aromas from other food products in your refrigerator. Freezing coffee can also have a damaging effect, and we do not recommend this practice unless you will not use-up your supply of coffee for a prolonged period of time (two weeks or more). Coffee should be stored in a clean, dry, airtight container, in a cool, dark place




Coffee Fun Facts

There are only two types of coffee on Earth but hundreds of styles of brew can be concocted, depending on where the beans are grown, and how they're handled post-harvest.

Lighter roasted coffee actually has more caffeine per coffee bean than dark roasts. So a cup of French Roast coffee has noticeably less caffeine than say, a cup of a Light City Roast coffee

Ethiopia is thought to be the motherland of the first coffee beans, which found their way to Brazil and Colombia--the two largest coffee producers today.

Coffee is the second-most traded commodity in the world economy, after oil, but one coffee tree yields slightly less than 1 pound of coffee per year.

Set up your Coffee Pot, Smell the aroma, Enjoy a hot cup of Coffee !
