>>Petty went for 20 minutes, maybe more, talking about what a good cup of coffee should be, how to recognize one, where to find one. It was the level of engagement he reserved for subjects like Fender Telecasters or the Beatles.
>The story he told me went something like this: He’d been out driving with his wife, Dana, north of their Malibu home, when they’d stopped at a diner. The coffee there, he told me, was close to perfect. Generally reserved, even shy, he felt compelled to ask the waitress what kind it was. She didn’t know. She told him she’d ask the manager. The manager, possibly surprised that a rock & roll legend wanted information about the diner’s coffee, gave him the secret, which probably wasn’t a secret at all. It was Maxwell House.
>When Petty heard the words “Maxwell House,” he didn’t turn back. He wasn’t going to deny the truth of his experience. In his view, it was a great cup of coffee. He didn’t bow to any hipster sensibility that went against his own tastes. His response? “Can I see how you make it?” The manager took Petty into the kitchen, where a Bunn Automatic coffeemaker was doing its thing. If you look in most any diner across America, the Bunn Automatic is a pretty standard fixture. For the places that do high-volume work, their units are professional-grade, tied into the plumbing rather than just sitting on the countertop.

Maybe it's just a bad bag, but there's no nice fresh coffee smells. Tastes a little burnt but it goes alright with frothed milk.

If you were looking to spend some time hunting for good deals on a grinder off eBay, what models would you watch out for? If the goal was to get something as close to $100-150 as possible but still end up with something decent and you didn't mind having do try your luck bidding on things?

I've heard that breville is usually a good bet because there's a lot of them out there that people tend to sell when they're done with them, would something like the smart grinder pro be a good buy if you could catch one at a steal for like $100? Any other relatively unknown gems to watch out for?

Most common use would be v60 pourover but if it was possible to catch something that could potentially make a halfway decent espresso in the future that would be a bonus.

I'm a big fan of Kenyan coffees. Acidic, sweet, bodied, typically citrusy, with a range of interesting subordinate flavors (various fruits, spice, chocolate, tea). Almost always exceeds expectations because of extremely autistic processing and grading standards. I usually have a couple on hand. You almost can't fuck up roasting them either since they taste nice acros a pretty wide range. They're expensive though. Not meme coffee expensive, but more than most coffees.

I'm an espresso with milk kind of guy but if a cafe has something unusual I'll try it out.

Kind of, although basically everything is inferior to a steam wand, supposedly shaking warm milk in a jar works but I never tried it.

Depends on how you brew it, more beans should work but my first try would be a coarser grind and/or longer extraction time.

well textured milk is really fucking good, large bubbles from mechanical frothers suck and I disfavour it over regular hot milk

How do you heat it now? Microwave sucks because you get the film on top and it never tastes right after separation. The best no nonsense method I found was to pour milk from the cup you want to fill in a small saucepan, then start swirling the milk when it gets warm by moving the pan in swift circles so it won't cook on the bottom. Pan has a little film that can be wiped out after you're done. You'll want a fast digital thermometer for consistent temperature.

The only steamer I can talk about is one of those pressure vessel stovetop steamers. It does work, but the instruction you find online is poor and you have to teach yourself, it can only texture a single serving of milk well, and the kind I got didn't work on induction and it is slow as fuck on electric. If you can find one that works on induction and get a stand alone induction top it would be all right, but you might be in so much money with the cooktop that you can buy something that isn't literally a bomb with relief valves preventing you from dying.

Depends on what you're making. Kinus are great, but perform way better on the espresso side. Still makes great pourovers, but the fines are noticeable if you're brewing in an easily clogged filter paper like Cafec lights. I sifted off everything under 700um and the paper still clogged. I ground SIGNIFICANTLY coarser and didn't sift and it clogged even harder. Faster cutting burrs will generate more fines, but require less effort. They also make a specific pourover burr that is way slower cutting.
>what is its percentage of ground coffee with a > +/- 200micron
When I sift espresso at kruve's recommended sizes(200um, 600um), 21g in nets me about equal fines and boulders and leaves me with a ~17-18g dose. The kinu is getting retired hopefully at the end of this month. It'll be interesting to go from 47mm conicals to 83mm conicals.

I understand the point of brewing coffee is to avoid the bitter compounds, which grinding and dissolving it doesn't do. Cacoa isn't as bitter, so that's why we don't do that? Or brewing methods make weak chocolate water? So that's why I wondered if the espresso pressure would extract enough to make it worth it

Swapped them over to a 4pin minixlr and made a balanced cable for $14 a foot, then never got around to buying the a90 since I want to buy dumb shit next. I'm very familiar with the k7 series sound signature.
I've never enjoyed these headphones more. Warmer fuller bass without losing a gram of analytical detail. Give it a shot if you ever need to repair a set of cans. I'll probably buy another foot and make a minixlr4pin to 2.5m for the btr5.

Second impression:
After giving it a full 24 hour rest, I'm finding that the fresh strawberry is completely replaced with a much bigger strawberry jamminess, the sweetness much better balanced with an acidic tanginess that hits at the same time. It's not harsh, or what I would consider a highly acidic coffee though. Backend still has chocolate, but it's less disjointed. A really lovely, characteristic semi-fermenty dry process taste permeates throughout, but this time the aftertaste is clearly strawberry. I can pick out that unidentifiable flavor in there now: it's treacle. Again, wow. This is the best coffee I've had in 2021.

Only just recently found a place locally where I can get some different varieties of beans/roast from the standard dark roasted Columbian stuff that every single shop in my area seems to default to for everything. Grabbed a couple bags of relatively light roasted varieties to try out and see how I liked, any recommendations as far as anything you'd do differently for lighter roasts vs darker during the brew? I upped my brew temp to full boiling from my usual ~205F I'd use for darker roasts because hoffmeme seemed to make some pretty good arguments for it extracting better on lighter roasts and that seems to have been an improvement. Any opinions on grind size, would you normally leave that alone or does anyone notice a trend as far as a coarser or finer grind working better for lighter roasts in general? Brew method is v60.

>> No.16926882

What's kind of interesting to me is how the day's rest after roasting made the taste fuller and smoother. That first cup, the same flavors were still all there, but they hit me in stages with every sip. Isn't that funny? Does anyone have an explanation for this?

>> No.16926907

that's the cappuccino glass

>> No.16926921

Degassing would be the most likely culprit, since as CO2 is released it gets easier to more fully extract the coffee. That's part of the reason for blooming your brew, to let the beans preinfuse and release some gas so that the rest of the brew process can better extract.

>> No.16926930

Were you using it same day or right after it was roasted btw? In general it's usually recommended to let the beans rest for a while after roasting so they can degas like >>16926921 mentions. Depends on the roast how long it takes to get the best results but usually at least like a week is pretty good.

>> No.16926937

This makes sense for the overall flavor being bigger in the cup, but do you think it also accounts for the strange disjointedness of the flavors in each sip coming in segments?

Expect the flavor to keep evolving a bit as you get further from the roast date, though the differences will definitely slow down as time goes on.

Possibly but to be entirely honest I'm not sure about that. Could be that it was somewhat under-extracted so you missing some of the "middle" flavors that would usually make it feel more tied together but I'm just speculating wildly on that, I have no science to back it up.

That guy made a poor analogy. Coffee has a lot of volatile aromatic compounds that readily degrade in the presence of heat and oxygen. Although the process of freeze drying brewed coffee is very cool and much better than it was decades ago, it's still never very good compared to good fresh coffee. If I were to think of a more apt analogy instant coffee would be freeze dried instant potato flakes and fresh coffee would be fresh potatoes. You just lose some quality and flavor making it shelf stable.
