Some things that have made my fp coffee taste better is pouring 30-60 seconds off the boil, I don't really time it because I'm not a dork. Also since the coffee is rich I use about 2 level teaspoons, this combined with the cooler water and no more than 4 minute saturating time makes for a smoother cup though I haven't experimented more than a few times. One of the tips I discovered was to stir the bloom after a minute then fill the rest of press up with water as usual. I do enjoy the oiliness but I could do with a bit less of the acidity. It definitely does have more body though, I may get some hario stuff to do pourover later. Found a fly ass kettle awhile back.

I was addicted to coffee for a little over a year. I think the amounts Americans drink isn't healthy, a simple espresso shot straight or mixed with whatever like they do in the Mediterranean after a meal is ideal imo.

all of this is good advice, but i would recommend folding, not stirring. the extra agitation will make it slightly more acidic.

I like Tim Hortons. It's how I quit smoking.

Bummer, but duly noted, thanks.

Also, hand pour 4 life.

Capresso Infiniti burr grinder is a decent entry-level jobby that gets a pretty even grind and doesn't heat up the beans too much. Mine's still going strong a good 6 years later, and I'm sure I paid less than a bill for it.

Unrelated - how is it that Cut Copy is playing Buffalo, NY but not Philadelphia? ffffuuuu.gif

If the new Verboten club is Brooklyn is as cool as the hype (its opens tomorrow), then you should think about coming down for it.

do you guys scoop the grounds off the top before pressing? I did it this morning and it's a bit less silt-y

At this point, opening up a small coffee shop is my life dream.

Well we drink more than 1 of those simple espressos.   Most people drink 3 or 4 a day.

 

That said, I found it funny when I first arrived in the US to see people walking around with their venti coffee asking me how I can drink espresso ("it's too much caffeine for me!  An espresso and I'm hyper for hours! ).    At the same time siping their venti drip coffee from Starbucks that contains probably 3 times MORE caffeine than my espresso   :facepalm:

Buy a hand grinder and grind your beans at home though, son.

I use this as well. It also works pretty well as an impromptu weapon thing is heeeaaavy.
