Topic: 100 cups of coffee, please help (8 msgs / 140 lines)
1) From: petzul
So now I have been volunteered to provide the coffee for one of our 
church functions.
You KNOW I don't want to just put MY coffee (mazzer ground of course) 
into one of those huge aluminum percolators and let it get ruined.
What I was thinking of doing is this. Put 100 scoops into the coffee 
basket (also aluminum with tiny holes, no filter) and no water in it.
The water I would boil on the stove in a separate pot or two, and dip it 
onto the grinds, letting it flow through until the glass tube read that 
it was full.
Any ideas on how this would work?
When I was a teenager and worked in a kitchen this is kind of how we 
would make coffee, except we used a filter bag, and dumped the coffee 
through again by draining a gallon or so out and dumping it back into 
the filter.
Would this be a good idea with the aluminum church type units?
Thanks in advance for your help,
PeterZ

Call the Bunn dealer in your town and ask if you could get a demo
machine for the church function to test it out!

1)  pull 100 shots espresso, collect (about 6 quarts) and refrigerate
2)  at event bring 18 quarts water to a boil, reduce heat
3)  add collected espresso
Voila, about 100 cups (8oz) Americanos, at service temperature to boot.

Sounds good though :)
Thanks for the tip,

Search for the archive with the subject line "coffee for fifty."  It
started just before Thanksgiving. In that thread, I described the
method I found the best method to make drip coffee in quantity. It
does not require any special equipment, just a stock pot and cotton
flannel bag. If you can't find the archive, write me off line and I'll
forward the thread to you.

The Bunn works quiet well, everything considered.  I've done it.  The unit 
our church has can make 3 gallons a crack.  1.5 on each side.  When I put that 
good coffee into a machine that has a steady diet of Robusta, it seems to say:  
"Thank you, Thank you."

I don't want to speak too much heresy here, but I've found that our
perc. pot at church (just a cheap one) makes pretty decent coffee if
good coffee is used (ground very coursely) and it's transfered to
carafes almost immediately after it's finished perking.
We use a fair-trade fellowship blend at church and it turns out pretty
decent coffee - using just under a 1/2 c. of grounds to each 10
servings (as marked on the side of the pot.)
Grace and Peace,
  `tim
