    Yea, I pretty much posted because I'm a bored, under achieving, serial narcissist and wanted to share my meager journey with a captive audience. I'm having fun and have definitely taken a wild unanticipated turn in coffee.
    try putting a little bit of salt in your v60. just a pinch.

    no seriously. try it with any of your citrus cocktails too.

    bump for beans.
    this morning I pulled a bonehead move. Packed the espresso moka pot and forgot to put water in. making eggs and roasting a bagel and watching it smoke but not steam.
    FUCK !
    the coffee was burnt and smelled like over cooked microwave popcorn. Not sure if the gasket melted too bad but the plastic knob on the top lid got hot enough, the screw fell in.
    Gonna give it a test ride later. No big deal. It was a cheap one and I have a backup, but damn, that was stupid.
    Bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste goood.

    I've pulled more than one espresso shot with the blank basket in - it basically keeps water from going out and you can't put coffee in it. After 45 seconds with no coffee coming out I look under, see I'm doing nothing at all, look over my shoulder to make sure no one saw, and then make real coffee after

    no harm, no foul. pot still works.I should know not to make a moka pot in a hurry of multi tasking rushing a breffast. If you don't stand over a pot until it's bubbling, you know something fucked up will happen

    Coffee arrived.

    About to brew some up for my 93 y/o Mom. She is super excited about tasting it. At her age, it does not take much to get her excited.

    THANKS !

    rad man!

    that coffee is a classic high-elevation kenyan washed - it's grown pretty much on the slopes of mount kenya, and it's made of two varieties of arabica, SL28 and SL34. the growers their are among the best in the world, and their processing method (how they get the cherry off the seed) is top notch; the resulting coffee is bright, juicy, and tastes like cranberry/orange zest/seven up/apple.

    i like it because it's very acidic but still super sweet and pleasant to drink

    Since Iíve been roasting Iíve become a big fan of several Sumatraís. Roasting them to city + is a game changer over the typical dark roasts we typically see. Working on #5 of a really nice pea berry.

    The Gene Cafe isnít a bad roaster. Works well and is fairly repeatable but donít follow the directions. I preheat the machine for about 5 minutes, then do an emergency stop, load the beans ASAP, then run it up to 482, dropping the temperature around 6-7 minutes down to 460. I think Iíll be upgrading to a Bullet next year to increase batch size, better control, consistency and get way better data. I figure that with the savings from 2 years of use it will almost pay for itself.

    nice man!! yeah, i'm also going to upgrade to a bullet sooner rather than later. it's the only way.

    i also really like sumatra/java coffees (really, anything wet hulled) around that same roast range... for me, i take it to like a C++ (two to two and a half minutes after first crack start, give or take). they're good on their own as pourover, but they really come into their own as a component in an espresso blend (like 30% sumatran, 60% dry processed ethiopian, 10% columbian/kenyan) - it just adds such body and mouthfeel to the shot. so syrupy and rich.

    today i'm drinking this:

    i'll be sad when i kill this bag. it's so tasty.

    Nice.

    Once first crack starts give it like 30-45seconds and then drop it. Drop sooner than you think you should.

    My theory is that he is just a dude that is obsessed with whiskey, coffee and gardening who pays mall walker and other UT mags for ski photos so he feels like a skier! He obviously can't have time to ski with these other hobbies.

    for pourover, i run an orphan espresso apex and a $8 plastic v60

    for travel, i have a flair & a madebyknock feldgrind

    who am i kidding, i can't afford to travel, but i do hoard coffee travel equipment

    Looking to upgrade my travel coffee hand grinder. Currently have a Hario Coffee Mill and it does a fine job, but it is slow as fuck. My travel coffee setup is an aeropress and grinder, so I donít even really need it to be espresso capable, just able to give me an aeropress fine grind quickly. Grinding beans for 3-4 minutes while trying to get out of my hotel room for whatever meeting Iím going to isnít convenient. Any suggestions ?

    +100 on Lido quality. I owned one for years and absolutely loved it. My current pour over hand grinder isn't suitable for travel, but it's made by the folks who make the Lido (Orphan Espresso) and I absolutely love it.

    5 years ago there wasn't much on the market, but now there's a whole host of extremely high quality travel grinders. Check out Lido, madebyknock, Comandante, and Kinu for starters. All of them kick ass, and if you want to improve the quality of your coffee, spend money on your grinder.

    Also the Hario coffee mill sucks. Grind quality is great for the price but both the speed and the hand ergonomics are on par with OG nintendo NES. You'll be blown away how much faster/easier to use any of the above grinders are.

    The hand grinder recommended earlier on from Rhino is probably too cheap at under $40 on Amazon, but the Aeropress's plunger is a perfect fit replacement for its grind cup. So if you want a slightly more compact travel option, leave the cup at home and let the plunger become dual function. Or so I think; I'll probably try it tomorrow.

    So far my only complaint is that I wish the handle was about a half inch or so shorter for quicker turning. But the hex the handle drives does fit right into a drill or impact wrench, so that might turn me lazy at home.

    Any thoughts on the 1zpresso? Q2 looks like the right size for travel.
