I woke up the other day and used my gf's french press. I literally grew a cunt on my face, which slowly faded away throughout the day. It made me want a regular setup so that I can march around all day and people can see what a huge cunt I really am.
Where do I start? French press? Burr grinder? Intelligentsia? Consider yourself the obgyn of coffee. I need a nice aromatic papsmear every morning.
solid cheap grinder
and look at bodums for a starter press
Intelli is so five years ago... but seriously, some of my favorite roasters are Klatch, Stumptown and Metropolis.
i have this grinder. conical burrs ($$) are a must if you want to get cunty.
it set me back 200, but it's really easy to use and you can grind from super coarse for french press to super fine for espresso and turkish.
I really enjoyed reading this post.
smuggy but true.
i sorta cornered full metal cunt -- my client provides Kean and Klatch all their green beans and we roast together now on his Diedrich roaster. so cunty i smell like fisherman's wharf
That said, cheapest is burr grinder (don't overspend) and get a chemex and Hario -- do pour overs. I prefer them over a french press. Or do the technovorm if you're doing volume coffee.
Jesus and I felt like I had "made it" when I finally bought a Keurig.
Yeah, if you're roasting your own green beans, it doesn't get much more 3rd wave than that. I was going to get a Behmor and start playing around with 12 oz. batches. I feel it's a slippery slope and once you go start, there's no going back.
I just got this DeLonghi grinder. Been pretty happy with it.
I have been sticking with Metropolis and intelligentsia lately just because it is convenient to get at WF or Treasure Island. I really want to try Kickapoo Coffee. http://www.kickapoocoffee.com/ They won Roaster of the Year a couple years back from Roast Magazine, and they are from my home state Wisconsin. Anyone ever had it?
French press came in. Smug levels have risen a level.
Have a hario kettle on the way. Been looking at the baratza encore, will pull the trigger soon. What coffee am I buying? I like a medium to full bodied coffee but not too strong.
just started drinking coffee this month, and this is my setup. Hope this little habit i started doesn't end with me being cunty and buying really expensive equipment just for my morning beverage.
Best Kona coffee?
Most of my go-to coffee spots do not have Kona beans.
the El Salvs are in season. There's an "especial" floating around that is perfect. http://www.equatorcoffees.com/coffee/new-arrivals the bourbon
don't do kona buy the rusty's farm - it's the real deal
I still want this.
I just ordered from Atomic. They're out of MA. I've never tried their stuff before. I bought two of their espresso offerings and a Nicaraguan.
been lusting after a technivorm for a while now. already have an espresso machine, french press, and an aeropress. don't know if i can justify dropping some more change for a drip.
also want a super cunty reg barber tamper
My next appliance purchase will be this guy.
Got myself one of these and I'm really enjoying it.
Anyone else use travel presses?
Didn't read thread. Does it contain a beginner's guide for coffee snobbery?
I have one but hav we yet to use it. How u like it? My employer got bought out by a large company which meant losing good coffee perks. I've been buying Starbucks every day, but have considered using this during the week. I just don't know if I want to go full cunt in the workplace. My biggest prob is that I don't like taking coffee on the train. If I drove to work it wouldn't be an issue
Been recently using an Aeropress. That, plus some quality coffee produces a damn good cup of joe.
Well the reason I bought it is because I'm travelling for work about 50% of the year, and there is never good coffee in hotels, and I'm not always by a place to get good coffee. I love this travel press. I just use the hotel coffee maker for the hot water and bring my own coffee wherever I go.
Same model. Bring mine to work each morning. Leaks a little at the press if filled up and tilted or heavily bumped but would rather have it than not.
Just bought a Chemex. I live down the street from a Williams Sonoma and at 35 bucks I couldn't resist. What the fuck is wrong with me? I drank a full 8 cup French press every day last week. This isn't healthy. I'm going to be free basing this shit soon. Where does it end, shooting up espresso as condensed as you can get it?
That would be called a ristretto. And yes, if you keep it up, that's where it ends.
TMB chooses the next coffee I buy.
Who in here fucks with the pour-over coffee?
Boiling water for my Chemex right now.
Is their really that much difference in taste?
You just get to control everything. If something is off its all your fault, but it's superior to a drip or keurig deal where you get to control very little. Here is what I try to control:
Whole bean freshness
Ground to water ratio
Consistent and equal ground coverage
I'm sure I'm missing stuff but the point is there are very particular parameters for all of those things depending on how much you're brewing and what you're brewing it in. When you get all of that just so, it just feels and tastes like you're getting the most out of your beans. I'm a huge fan so far. I also enjoy French press but it's a different experience. It's not as clean of a cup, little muddier and cloudier but some people prefer that.
Found a pretty cunty local roaster that sells a single origin costa rican I'm going to try tomorrow.
"I TAKE MY COFFEE BLACK. BOILED OUT OF A CAST IRON SKILLET YOU WISPY LITTLE CUNT FART" - THE ANTI-SNOB CUNT, JOHN WAYNE
Looks like I might be opening a coffee house and bakery in the next 3 months. Just started negotiations with a landlord -- my client - the green coffee broker - wants to partner so we'll get all our green beans at cost - so our margins will already be better than most. Pour overs exclusively.
You're a hero to cunts everywhere. Cuntus javas majorus.
My clitoris is bigger than a french press
Where do you plan on opening up? My work takes me to LA and OC often.
Same general area? I probably should talk to you about equipment you are going to use. I'm not a coffee guy so that side of things is not my strong point.
Super is there ever concern about these small single origin estates being in the drug biz as well?
Finally got my air tight bean container, french press, grinder & kettle off my wedding registry. Making my first cup tomorrow.
Give me pointers for :like: 's
Get a really coarse grind for the french press.
