HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2813

post #42181 of 43821

Yes.  For home use I won't use any system that doesn't allow me to grind my own beans. 

 

In my experience that's the single thing one can do which will have the greatest impact on the quality of one's brew. 

 

Cheers,

But there is a solution: become your own barista! (Or in my case, marry someone who has fundamentalist views on coffee and will insist on making you coffee just to make sure you don't mess up her beloved Rancilio...)

I hate to say it, but this is spot on. I always grind my own. But I'd take it a step further. In order to get the best results from grinding your own I suggest finding a supplier for locally roasted beans. Beans that have been roasted and then spent days or weeks lying around, whether in packaging or not, are simply not as good as fresh roasted.

Unless you grow, harvest and roast your own, you're full of crap and so is your coffee.

I do the whole pourover thing every morning and I have all the gadgets. Besides fresh beans, If I were to recommend one piece of equipment it would be a scale. You cannot create consistent brew without knowing how much water and coffee you are using (assuming you are taking the handbrew plunge).

My wife and I wouldn't drink that anyway. It has a high potential to be exploitative toward animals.

@Caustic Man  likewise. I'm concerned it's exploitative of me

post #42191 of 43821

You animal!

Still in the grips of summer.

Very good as always, but those shoes deserve a shine.

Thanks. They're a bit dull but I don't go out of my way to get a high shine. The light is also washing them out a bit. A little polish couldn't hurt. Good eye!
