Start with whatever ratio you use currently, see how you like it, and adjust to taste. I haven't substantially changed my brew parameters when I went from paper to a metal mesh filter for the Aeropress.For freezing, if you have to do it, freeze in separate small batches (maybe enough for a week per batch) so you don't repeatedly thaw and freeze all the beans. Pack in a ziplock and try to evacuate as much air as you can, mostly to reduce the moisture the beans will see.
I prefer Kleen Kanteens, because they're stainless steel instead of glass or plastic. The vacuum-insulated, wide-mouthed 12oz or larger would work well, and are easier to clean than the narrow ones: http://www.kleankanteen.com/products/wide-mouth-insulated-12oz?variant=1605380099
This sounds like one of those super-extracted coffee shots that became popular this year. I think they were saying something like 22+% extraction ratio. I've yet to try one, but am very curious.http://www.mahlkoenig.com/file/download/default/id/6981
Great article. “Batch brew” sounds pretentious enough that if enough of us ask our local hipster coffee shop about it that they may actually come around to the idea. Of course, they have to brew a new batch every 30 minutes like Peet's does, otherwise the coffee does go stale. Also, coffee normcore. And WTF is Foursquare? Didn't they go out of business? The only good pourovers I've had were either made with a cloth filter sock hanging over a cup without any kind of...
I was at the Pasadena Intelligentsia recently, and it seems you can only get pourover for brewed coffee now, and it starts at $5 for a cup. The service is quite terrible too: I had to keep looking to the counter to see if they had my cup ready, and when they did, they didn't call out my name for a few minutes. I think it was about 10 minutes from placing my order to actually having the cup in my hand. The coffee wasn't great either. La Colombe's more expensive Gesha is...
Congrats Joshua. It sounds like you're much happier with the write-up here than in the other article.
Wow, I just started reading his blog. It's good to hear another voice against the current trends:http://kaladicoffee.blogspot.com/
Same people: Coffee Shrub is the commercial importer side that sells to cafes. Sweet Maria's is their consumer-facing side.
Whoa. KitchenAid has an automatic, countertop siphon pot! The press pot with the built in scale looks interesting too, but maybe a bit gratuitous. http://dailycoffeenews.com/2015/08/12/vac-to-the-future-kitchenaid-unveils-automatic-siphon-coffee-brewer/
Yes, Rusty's Hawaiian: http://rustyshawaiian.com/ The Maui Mokka, and most of the limited editions are worth trying. I've not tried their regular stuff. I did not like their Kona Maragogype when I had it recently.
