    Another Winner from Rudy Vey

    During a recent trip to Spain we visited an Olive farm. The farmer let me have a small piece of wood from one of their trees. I asked Rudy to craft a shaving brush out of that wood. This is his final product. Beautiful work by Rudy and a great memento from our trip.

    Cold Brew newbie here

    I use a Hario Mizudashi Amazon.com: Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Iced Coffee Pot/Maker (1000ml, Black): Toddy: Kitchen & Dining with good results. I pour the coffee over ice and add a little simple syrup and cream. Nice results with pretty much any coffee that I roast to medium.

    Pour Over Coffee Brewer

    Maybe a little pricey for some, but I've used a (ceramic) Hario V60 for a number of years with god results. They also make a smaller size which is perfect for pouring one mug of coffee directly into your favorite mug.

    help with hario paperless pour over

    My method is the 30 second bloom followed by continuos, slow pouring in concentric circles. I use 18 grams of medium grind coffee for my 12 oz. morning mug.

    Black Handle Super Speed

    I would love to hear more about this. I have a 1970 black handle that I purchased as I graduated from college that year. The metal polishes up nicely, but the handle looks a little sketchy. Do you know someone who does recoating?
