Red Eye Gravy

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

I'm a utility coffee drinker.  I like dark roasts for drinking but I was wondering what type of coffee should I be using for red eye gravy.

 

Is a brown roast the way to go?  Should it be fresh or "stale"?  Brewed strong?

 

Any info would be appreciated,

There are no rules about roast levels.  Standard American breakfast roasts tend to be on the light side of medium; but good coffee is always better than bad.  Strong?  Yes.  Espresso?  Probably not, but you could always dilute it for an Americano gravy.  No problemo. 

 

Allan, you're a terrific cook.  Don't overthink.

Pick a medium to full-city roast of a relatively low acid coffee. One that I like to use is a nice Gatemalan. It's got chili and chocolate ly notes that marry quite well with smoked ham or country ham.
