right, that's an urban fable. Air is the enemy, not heat. Keep coffee in an airtight container.

I got a PIDed Silvia and Rocky. I usually get my beans from Cafe Grumpy, Gimme, or sometimes Joe's. If you don't live near a roaster, i suggest you order beans from www.roaste.com or www.gocoffeego.com.

I really dig Turkish coffee, and even went through the trouble of making it daily at home a few years back. But it's too time consuming for the quantity yielded. Also, a Turkish friend of mine informed me that the preparation of Turkish coffee is "women's work." It's sort of like knitting, I guess.

You're drinking the "coffee" equivalent of strawberry martinis at a bar. You know that, right?

I buy take-out Turkish style coffee in paper cup from the shop next door to me. It costs 40p a cup and is probably among the best coffee I've ever had.

We recently got a flagship type place by Berklee called Pavement, and I've gotten to try coffees from some amazing roasters there, including Ecco and Ritual. There are a few local roasters too that have been doing some great coffees like Barismo, George Howell, and Flatblack. In Somerville, Bloc 11 and Diesel do great stuff with Intelligentsia, although Diesel has been getting pretty ratty lately. All in all, and unlike almost everything else here, Boston's coffee scene is growing nicely into something quite praiseworthy. Edit: I forgot to plug Simon's, which, although I don't find myself in that area very often anymore, I consider the best or at least most consistent in the area.

I recently decided that if I'm going to drink coffee that isn't the swill they provide at work, I would like to make it myself instead of paying $3+ for a 12oz cup.

At the moment, my home setup is the standard Melitta pour-over along with a small grinder that basically only has one setting (fine/very fine). After some practice and learning the nuances of the Melitta cone, my initial goal was accomplished.

Last weekend, I dropped by Ritual and observed their pour-over setup. They use glass Hario cone filter holders from Japan (true conical shape) and seemed to get a good amount of extraction without having to stir the grinds... however the Hario products were rather pricey at Ritual.

I'd like to mirror someone's earlier comments about the entire process... it is rather therapeutic. Any other pour-over fans?

Also, I've gone through a couple bags of Equator and Barefoot... recommendations for future purchases?

Friend uses a Chemex brewer and this method whenever I'm over at her house.
