Random fashion thoughts - Page 6196post #92926 of 1090533/12/14 at 10:59pmSome 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.post #92927 of 1090533/12/14 at 11:07pmpost #92928 of 1090533/12/14 at 11:07pmQuote:Originally Posted by jet

all of this is good advice, but i would recommend folding, not stirring. the extra agitation will make it slightly more acidic.post #92929 of 1090533/13/14 at 1:24ampost #92930 of 1090533/13/14 at 4:14amQuote:Originally Posted by notwithit

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?
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.post #92931 of 1090533/13/14 at 7:05ampost #92932 of 1090533/13/14 at 7:08amQuote:Originally Posted by mike868y
yeah i've been super happy with my capresso for the price. lots of grind retention, but a tap on the back after grinding gets most of it out. upgrading my setup from capresso/fp+bialetti to a gaggia classic/Baratza Virtuoso with my tax return . 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 espressopost #92934 of 1090533/13/14 at 7:30ampost #92935 of 1090533/13/14 at 7:43ampost #92936 of 1090533/13/14 at 7:48ampost #92937 of 1090533/13/14 at 8:15ampost #92938 of 1090533/13/14 at 8:17ampost #92939 of 1090533/13/14 at 8:20ampost #92940 of 1090533/13/14 at 8:24am
