Good Coffee

I live 1 hour from my university, so every morning I spend an hour on the train before peak hour.
I noticed that most people are either very tired or bored at that time. I had the idea of the possibility of a business selling breakfast and coffee in the morning in the train. After speaking to some friends I found out I would never get permission to do that. Therefore I thought, if I'm not going to make money, lets use it to bless other people.

My general idea is to bring a thermos of coffee and some disposable cups and offer to the sleep-zombies that are so lucky to take the early train with me. Danes love coffee and I think it would be a nice gesture.

The problem is that I don't drink coffee myself and have no idea how to make good coffee. What coffee should I buy? Do I need a machine? How much coffee do you use?

Anyone up for teaching me how?

Completely disregard this advice.


There are plenty of good ways of making coffee, and each method has its own strengths. Plunger is pretty standard and can make a decent coffee, and could easily make enough to share. I personally prefer stove top espresso or pourover, but making the quantities you'll want for sharing is trickier.

(I drink a "6 cup" stove top espresso by myself)

My church has some big coffee machine. I might try and ask someone there to teach me how to use it. If all goes as planned I will buy some coffee in the weekend and then I'll do it next week.

I'm curious about how people will react to it on the train...

I say bring a generator, large reservoir, and a keurig. Everyone will love it.
