Can you suggest a steam-powered milk frothing machine?

My friend wants to buy a steam milk frother as a gift for his mother. The tricky part? She drinks only instant coffee, so doesn't require an espresso machine, JUST the milk frother. Does such an appliance exist, and if so, can it be purchased for under £80? [more inside]

Any way to make a good k-cup coffee?

Is there anyway to make K-Cup coffee not taste like dishwater? We have a Keurig machine at the office and it makes just barely tolerable coffee. Are there any flavors out there that actually make a good cup? Are there any settings on the machine you can fiddle with?

$4 a day for a steaming pile of crap

Due to budgetary constraints, I've cut back on my daily quad-shot 16 oz. latte and am brewing coffee to take to work in the morning. I've noticed a difference in my moods and energy levels, but, more importantly, brewed coffee does not bring out the poop like the espresso drink does. [more inside]

Like trying to find weed in the sea, I suppose.

Does anyone know of good coffee shops (and I do mean actual coffee) in Amsterdam? The kind where you can sit, maybe on a couch, with a book? The Vienna kind? I would really like to find one, but the dutch don't seem to have much of a coffee shop culture. It seems so silly to ask here because I actually live in Amsterdam (and you probably don't), but I've been looking for ages and nobody I know has been able to point me to one, and obviously googling for "amsterdam" and "coffee shop" isn't giving me the right answers.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

What's your favorite coffee (brand and roast/flavor) that's available over the internet? I like a full bodied coffee, but nothing that borders on bitter. Bonus if I'm not paying $20+/lb (you know who you are, Illy). I know 100% Kona coffee is supposed to be the best, but, again, I can't really afford $30/lb. Right now I'm drinking various dark blends from Starbucks and enjoy them, but I know there must be truly amazing coffees out there. [more inside]
