• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Recently took the plunge into espresso after exclusively doing kalita wave/v60 pourovers for the past couple years:

Picked up a used VBM domobar jr from craigslist, and got in on March's round of NZs.

Then invest in a quality hand grinder which can be very useful for portable pourovers aswell. I suggest looking into the Kinu M47 or its cheaper variants (which will give you pretty much the same grind quality).
+1 on the Kinu M47, it's a great grinder that can do pretty much everything.

Every six months you get some dickhead who comes in here to say they don't drink coffee, or they just drink tea to be pompous.
It’s even worse in the drinking thread.

After a couple of weekends with my new pour over kit I have design modifications to build a better pour over carafe. Anyone able to help me design, build, distribute my ideas? @Ebitdaddy?

You can sometimes find manufacturers that will handle the r&d for free but the molds and stuff will cost. Maybe consider taking it to a few niche brands and asking for a royalty.

@Piobaire
Reach out to someone like Paul Pratt at Cafelat or Doug Garrott at Orphan Espresso. Doug builds grinders and Paul has developed several coffee products like the Robot. They may not help you but they may point you in the right direction.
Or maybe someone like James Hoffman.

Could your idea be done with a 3D printer? Would be good to make it and try it for a while. Get some input from coffee pros.
Do you know if your idea has ever been tried?

I haven’t researched that yet. I was just thinking Saturday morning on some issues with the design, issues I’ve had with wine decanters that some decanters have designed around.

That Domobar is gorgeous; really nice pickup. Very similar to my current set-up - just added a NZ in the mix and loving it so far:

I only had my BZ10 for 2 months and I'm already looking at upgrading to a sick lever machine like the Londinium R or Profitec Pro 800.

I went today and it was closed WTF?!?!?!
Watched a James Hoffman video done in NYC a couple months ago. He stopped by Felix and the roastery. Had nice things to say.
