I would love to put the douchebags who made the video through a blind test ("so one of these bloomed and dripped the horror, while the other was bloomed perfectly, no drip, just like you recommend. pick them out by taste alone").

Anyway, if you like Chemex I won't tell you it sucks. Hell, I have a Chemex clone (Hario Drip Pot). But chemex paper is pure fraud. For people who don't give a shit about aesthetics, they should get a plain drip cone and regular paper. If you like to make 4 cups, get a carafe to drip into. If you don't like plastics there are ceramic or glass drip cones as well.

Aeropress is great technology and I don't see any reason it wouldn't make as good a coffee as any other drip method.

A great book that goes into all of this with pretty good technical detail is Everything But Espresso. There's even a companion iPhone app that couples to a refractometer so you can measure the extraction ratio of your coffee. It looks like a great device for driving your local barista insane.

I have had the Baratza for about a year and it has been fine. Yes it's build quality is not tank-like, but so far it has held up to daily use. And the grinding is first rate. So no complaints from me.

I also have the Hario hand grinder - it is a bit of a pain but it works well.

There was a blog post on the NYT's Ristretto about these back in November. Very positive.

Speaking of drip coffee I made the mistake of being in San-Fran-Frisco last week and stupidly compounded that mistake by ordering a coffee from Blue Bottle.

I just wanted a simple cup of coffee but the nearest thing they had to that meant waiting 5 minutes for some elaborate pouring process to unfold which gave me with an overly strong lukewarm cup of coffee.

$2.75.

Greatest scam ever.

The extra dollar is for condescending trust fund hipster attitude. If they did not include this with your order then you should go back and ask for it.

I've got this beast:


It's stylish, cheap, and bombproof. I've ground nuts and seeds in it and it's really strong. A bit of work, but highly recommended.

What about a <$200 burr grinder for someone making French Press?

And I don't make espresso, ever.

How hard are these to clean, anyways?

The Camano mill is a high-quality cast iron burr grinder that will last forever and not break, fwiw. It takes about 30 seconds to grind the beans for a press and costs $60. The pricy electronic machines just sound like a headache to me.

I have a Virtuoso. Works well enough and is easy to clean, but the timer knob always falls off and the plastic bin is static central.

thoughts on these two? the bodum burr grinder vs. a hand grinder.

I usually aeropress or french press my coffee, but I might get a Chemex...not sure yet. I kind of dig the idea of hand grinding coffee beans, but not sure as to the inconvenience of doing so every day.
