    Unfortunately I am getting a noticeable increase in extraction with the third wave water.

    There are recipes on the coffee reddit to make the powder in bulk for virtually nothing.

    What’s the best bean sub these days? Did Trade for a bit and it was pretty good…just wondering what else might be out there

    Fellow drops has been good for pour overs, definitely better than trade for about the same money.

    Nice that you can pick and choose when to order. Can be a little pricey though and it’s definitely focused on pour over.

    My Chemex broke today in a kitchen casualty. I only ever made 1 or 2 cups at a time in it but used it almost every day. Is there a better alternative? Aeropress? Some sort of ceramic single serve pour over that just brews directly into the mug?

    Always been tempted by those drippers like the hario switch

    I had Atlas for a few months and enjoyed it. However, I use Fellow Drops now. I like that it’s not an actual subscription service. I have an option to buy a new bag each Tuesday. Works great since I tend to travel a bunch and don’t have to worry about pausing a subscription or having beans go stale.

    Fellow also has a rotating line of beans from the recent drops available on their site - same shipping rate ($2 a bag). Cheaper than getting it from the roaster themselves.

    Bold Bean put together a late-summer release of 3 "rare" beans they've curated. I got the 1st installment this week & it's been phenomenal. I'll let you guys know when they do the next one, in case someone else wants to grab.

    An astoundingly sweet, clean and perfectly-balanced coffee. Look for a syrupy body complemented by delicate flavor notes similar to fleshy peach, honeydew melon, jasmine and tropical fruit. A sweet, caramelized sugar aftertaste completes the wholly pleasing experience.

    My bad. I probably should've mentioned it here, but didn't occur to me when I got the email. I'll post the next one.

    Really all their stuff is great (they've been featured twice this year on Fellow Drops)... can't go wrong with any of their single origin beans.

    Dear High Cotton et all,

    I am a lifelong Chemex user, but I need to transition to a family size drip coffee maker (preferably with a carafe so that delicious coffee stays delicious for hours.)

    Give me your recommendations. Espresso not necessary, but I’ll entertain.

    Sincerely,
    BrickTamland

    You’ll only get 2 from me. I think the MoccaMaster is more versatile. As it has an adjustable filter, so you don’t always have to brew a full pot. (this might not be as functional as I imagine it to be)
