The one with Alec Baldwin is great.

my favorite car might be the miura in the chris rock episode, but the letterman episode with the 1995 volvo station wagon with a ford v8 (put in there by paul newman) might take the cake

the patton oswalt one was one of the funniest (his description of la hipsters was pretty funny). the mel brooks and carl reiner one made me really happy

i also love the product placement when he points it out "this is an acura rlx and acura is a sponsor of the show" or when they drive around hunting for an acura car with a piece of paper on the window that says product placement

also dude leaves like 100% tip but he wears the ugliest sneakers


i wanted to write something about the coffee on the show but didn't want to offend some douchebag that wanted a more substantive response about coffee

I rather enjoyed this article on the aeropress founder

do any of you work in an office like me?  the options for coffee are as follows: green mountain coffee keurig on this floor, dunkin donuts and various crappy vendors drip coffee on the ground floor, or starbucks a 3/4 mile walk in arctic temperatures.  I make an aeropress in the morning, but what about when I need that second hit?

Get a thermos, make a second batch for later. Pre heat the thermos with boiling water and the temperature should keep.

Other option is to use the office water dispenser, microwave to temp, and brew.

you can double the strength and dilute it instead of making a second brew and then out in a thermos

I know that this is the equivalent of posting your new all Stafford rig-out in the WAYWRN thread, but I picked this up at the thrift the other day for $5:



I know that it isn't anything fancy, but is it possible to get anything good out of this? I am a daily black coffee drinker, usually using a CCD. Sometimes with good coffee (Intelligentsia, Madcap), sometimes with not so good (8 o'clock Columbian shog[1].gif). I have a Baratza Encore to grind the beans before I brew. Like I said, I don't expect anything mindblowing, but can I pull a halfway decent espresso or cappuccino out of this? I've had espresso on a few occasions, but don't really have a feel for whether I like it or not. Thoughts?

Yes - stop reading this thread and you will enjoy the coffee you make with that beautiful machine.

Oh. Yeah. That's the reason.

Probably right. Same reason I wouldn't get custom suits made even if I could afford it. That way madness lies.

Currently drinking a coffee from Lampocoy, Guatemala. Relatively dark roast, Espro Press. Pretty good.

Last week I had black Turkish coffee with milk and no sugar, the strongest thing I ever tasted.

Try concentrated Turkish tea without diluting it... I made that mistake one time at the local falafel shop!

^Add enough sugar and you won't notice the astringency as much. tongue.gif
