lefty, I'm really surprised that you got a sour coffee from the Clover. If anything, even for their Reserve line, they err away from that flavor profile. But as has been pointed here, the Clovers are all controlled by the mothership, so I have no idea what happened. I guess they could still have used the wrong settings for your coffee, or the grinder size could have been wrong, or the wrong dosage used. I've also seen SB baristas pull the wrong bean: WTF could you mistake...
This looks interesting, but I'll wait til it actually ships to buy it: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/handground/precision-coffee-grinder-better-grind-more-flavor
Like a medium weight cashmere sweater, but more windproof. I have the 2nd GC and the city GC from LL, and have standard SB, notch lapel jackets, 3/2 buttons, no-patch pockets. The patterns are eye-catching enough that you don't need to add extra bells and whistles.
We're here to make your wallet lighter. How are you finding the OE grinder, BTW?
An interesting choice for dedicated home roasters: http://dailycoffeenews.com/2015/02/04/a-qa-with-the-inventor-of-the-bullet-1kg-roaster-coming-soon-hopefully/ Even better is that it's not funded via Kickstarter!
Our coffee friend and grump, Kevin Knox, writes about progressive roasting in this month's Royal Coffee newsletter. Royal's own tasters then tried it out with some very interesting results: http://links.royalcoffee.mkt6539.com/servlet/MailView?ms=MjIwNzEwNTAS1&r=ODg2Njk4MzA0MTMS1&j=NTAwMjM2NTI5S0&mt=1&rt=0 The upshot is that there is no one correct roast level. Different roast points bring out different characterisitcs of the bean, and this is just for a gross, straight...
Tom Mahon uses the Inn at Union Square. The staff there is helpful for tailors seeing clients and know how to be the receptionist for the tailor: they even recognize me from year to year, and I don't even have to say who I'm trying to see these days. The elevators are tremendously slow and somewhat unreliable, so you might have to use the stairs, which are also very narrow.
Peet's is offering their Ethiopian Supernatural starting next week for the next 3 weeks. At its best, it is sublime. Last year? Really good.
3rd wave coffee is like the cubic Borrelli shirt buttons of the coffee world. Exaggeration to the point of parody.
Hi guys, Wow, JetBlast is back! I haven't checked this thread in a while. It looks like a couple of people switched to Fuji? I tried the X100T recently, and didn't get along with it, mostly having to do with my preferences for image quality. It doesn't means it's bad, just that it's not right for me. I sold off my m43 kit, and have gone FF with a Nikon D810. My standard kit these days is the D810, Nikkor 24PCE, Voigtlander 180/4, and Sigma DP3M, along with a lightly...
