    Yeah, I wouldn't wear boots w/o socks either. The sweat and its smell are not pleasant things to deal with. Keep wearing the same socks for a week and you'll see...

    Bought an aeropress a couple weeks ago after my shitty espresso machine stopped working. Pretty cool. Anyone have any tricks/tips?

    I do 20g coffee (depends on coffee) and fill up with almost boiling water (bring to boil and let sit for 1 minute). I like the inverted method so the coffee doesn't drip (basically invert the aeropress when you brew it and press when done). Add a little water to let bloom. Wait 10 seconds. Add rest of water. Stir a few times. Wait a minute and press gently.

    The best tip I could give is you want everything to be hot as possible. I pour hot water in the aeropress without coffee then pour water into cup from aeropress. I then wet the paper filter. I leave the water in the cup while I brew and once I'm done I discard the water and then gently press the coffee in.

    There's also a world aeropress championship and they publish their recipes. Tbh I can't tell the difference between the most of them and the method I use seems good enough.

    Their pamphlet calls it an espresso but it's not. Nowhere enough pressure for a real espresso and it doesn't taste like it either but it's great for brew coffee and super easy to clean

    Will need to work a bit on sourcing the fabric. Will PM you if I find something. Do let me know if you have a source. Can access it from them.

    not sure if serious?

    Is Nicolas Ghesquiere wearing Alden Chukkas? That seems like an odd choice.

    Same with Riccardo wearing a generic, lower-end PRL shirt. Kind of odd.
