Keep Cups are fucking great.  Cork banded ones are the best.

 

16. I have 16 coffee related devices in my apartment right now.

I went ahead and ordered the KeepCup in 12oz, cork banded.

Is it travel friendly? Seems to fit in the seat cup holder of the car just fine.

We're not heavier drinkers of coffee in the family, so, it does not need to keep warm for a long amount of time. Just enough to finish 1 cup in the morning/afternoon.

I like the fact that I can just wash it and reuse like any cup I would use at home.

Wish it had a handle though, so, hopefully the cork band is sturdy for holding with one hand.

FWIW I'd still be interested in this though:

Is there a travel mug that has porcelain interior and stainless steel outer finish? With a handle is an added bonus.

I'm working with barismo right now which is ironically from Boston where I'll be spending the next two weeks and brining a 12 oz bag with me.

It's decent but I need a few more try's before I decide if it's a keeper.

Coffee... Bah Humbug.

I prefer Kleen Kanteens, because they're stainless steel instead of glass or plastic. The vacuum-insulated, wide-mouthed 12oz or larger would work well, and are easier to clean than the narrow ones:

We've been working with both Keep Cup and Swell Bottle. Big fans of both products.

Ever wonder how many different sets of coffee-making instructions are out there?.

The list of brew methods is pretty fun.

I have a chorreador, and was going through the pour over methods. I realize these are mostly people selling a gourmet experience, but I get a kick out of how precise they try to make everything look with the digital scale.

I think I'm waiting for the arms race in precision coffee brewing - I mean, where's the cooktek induction top to heat the water to precise temp? The digital thermometer? Precision valve to control water flow? Or is that where you upsell your barista's ability to ride the bloom?

I'm both happy and sad that coffee has become such a thing - the $3k+ automated home brewers or luxury built in machines for the home are a sight.

The human ability to obsess is an amazing thing.

Brew methods, eh?

For those who haven't seen it, allow me to present The Compendious Coffee Chart:

It certainly covers the majority of them.

By the way, the precision-brewing arms race has been raging for quite a while now, and it's gone way beyond mere digital thermometers and thermostatically-controlled induction tops.

I got that for @b1os for Secret Santa like two or three years ago. Pretty cool chart
post #3598 of 4117
that's ridiculous. french press, or bialetti moka when i'm up for something different.

i just got a bag of la colombe's corsica beans and must say it's been far better than intelligentsia's black cat that's been my choice for past several years.
post #3599 of 4117
I don't care for their corsica. It is heavy on the Brazilian coffee, which has never impressed me.

It's unfortunate that Brazil is saddled with the reputation of being a high-quantity, low-quality producer.

While that's certainly true of the vast majority of their production, I've also had exceptional beans from a few Brazilian specialty producers; Tim Wendelboe is notable for the effort he's put into bringing some of them here to Norway to prove that they're not all commodity-grade.

African-grown coffees still tend to be my favourites, but it's always nice to have options.
