A properly designed study

Combined with the aforementioned perfected method for freezing/thawing. Most attempts won't be as successful but GF's may well be, I don't know. Earlier well-designed studies I've seen have been less neutral on the effects, too. FWIW I'm a scientist by training, so I do follow the evidence. Bottom line is it's possible to freeze freshly roasted beans and thaw and use them later with (subjectively) no perceivable effect, but why risk it (unless you're travelling to the arctic and can't take a roaster smile.gif ). Hence I don't recommend it. But if there's no perceivable difference to the particular consumer, that's all that matters. We return you to your regular (style) programming.

Just received my Epic shoe trees from Endless.  Normal shipping, actually pretty fast.

 

Observations:

 

1. My trees are medium, and they are already slightly too big for my Meermin size UK 8.5 Hiro lasts.  They fit Loake UK 8 though, so go figure that out.

 

2. Stated on the box Made in the USA?  Weird, the website said they are made in China.  Same diff I suppose.

3. Virtually same quality with the Herring trees, except for the expandable toe area.

 

I am happy and all set where trees are concerned.

Obliviously your off your meds.

Mind you a Dr friend of mine will only drink International Roast (will not call it coffee) he became addicted as an intern. Poor soul.

Wow, I have it so lucky. We get weekly delivery of beans from Sensory Lab and have a very good machine in house.

Might be technically correct.  I have been told that is not coffee, but chicory.  Don't know whether it is true.

I drink Caro (which is a malt/chicory drink from Germany) and tea mostly. My wife is allergic to caffeine, so I've learned to live without it.

What area of science if you don't mind me asking?

Also, does anyone here know where I can get some decent quality navy shorts for casual/beach wear? I like the look of Orlebar Brown shorts on Mr Porter but $180 for a pair of polyester shorts is outrageous. Side tabs or not...

More of the same again today. I surprise myself how cbd I usually am.

Coffee snobs, just last weekend I experimented with roasting my own beans.

The machinery used? A $28 Breville Popcorn maker with slight modifications. I'm not sure if it relates to the fact I roasted them myself, or whether they are indeed well roasted, but I can't get enough! Definitely worth a try, the worst that can happen is that you're left with a popcorn maker and some burnt beans!

My degrees are in Engineering, so maths, physics and chemistry mainly.

This is an excellent way of getting in to home roasting, did that for quite a while. Biggest downside is the small quantities you can do at one time and the chaff that goes everywhere, so you end up standing outside carefully watching a popcorn maker rather a lot.
