• 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

@Kaplan how do you like the moccamaster? I'm currently using a French press, but find the steps a bit annoying, and difficult to get very consistent results.

I'm very happy with it. Pour over coffee is a bit too elaborate for me, but with this you can approach that quality with less fuss. (Though you have to be into that silky soft filter style. If you come from espresso, a moka pot, french press or even instant, you'll loose that more oily mouthfeel and body those provide. This style of coffee is more like the body and texture of a tea).

For maybe better and more consistent results with your french press, check the video below:


(I would probably skip the step where he skims the surface with the spoons, but it might be worth the effort.)

The Moccamaster rules and I have been using them for close to 15 years with my first KB-741 still going strong.
I would actually recommend not getting the thermal one as the carafe is useless and hard to clean. Better to decant into a Zojirushi thermal coffee carafe. Also, the glass ones are much easier to clean.
The best part of the Technivorm is it takes around 6 mins to brew.
The Bonavita is likewise good and is also SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) approved and slightly cheaper.

As for recent clothing purchases, added more Officine Generale stuff and a pair of Rag & Bone chinos. Fave are the New Fisherman chinos from OG.

Cool to see more talk about Officine Generale. It’s all really cool, easy, well done stuff.

I wish I could snag the Purpose graident coat too, but with a kid on the way my wife would have my head for getting that too, even on sale. Still super jazzed about the sweater though. The nice fine knit cuffs sold it for me.
