    Pour Over Wars - Hario V60 vs Kalita 102 vs Kalita Wave

    I think you've talked me into the Bonmac 2 hole dripper. I have the single hole and it makes good cups, but I always go back to my Kalita 185 or Americanos (depends on if I have the 'spro machine up and running). Off to Temple's website I go!

    Creamer VS. Black

    A lighter roasted coffee brewed properly. Depending on where you're at in Texas, there's a number of specialty coffee shops that will roast lighter than what everyone is accustomed to. If you don't mind mail order, Onyx Coffee Lab is in Bentonville Arkansas and roast some great beans.

    Tell us about your espresso machine

    ^^^I'd love to find some machines like that! I'm afraid it would likely be another rabbit hole for me, though. They look great!

    Cold Brew Coffee

    I started playing with cold brew and I've found the hot bloom cold brew recipes to produce great coffee.

    Mazzer Super Jolly Doserless Conversion

    Looks great! I picked up the funnel from eBay and I'm 99.999% positive it's a modified funnel like yours. It's not quite as long as I need, though. I may pick up the original Major funnel. I notice a TON of static because I don't use a screen. However, I get next to none when I RST. So I...

    Help with new Grinder for Pour Over

    I own the Hario Skerton, Baratza Encore, and Breville Smart Grinder Pro. The Hario lasted me about a year and was used for work duty, but the burr recently broke and now the Encore will take its place. I purchased the Breville SGP because it could grind fine enough for espresso, but I don't...

    Aeropress, does not impress.

    You may use a higher dose and perhaps stir more to get the extraction you desire. Mokapot doesn't have much pressure, but it certainly makes a fine cup of coffee. The beauty with the Aeropress is the almost infinite possibilities of extraction.

    Mazzer Super Jolly Doserless Conversion

    I think I'll be making the jump to doserless. The doser is pretty decent, but I like playing around with different variables.

    Mazzer Super Jolly Doserless Conversion

    I'm definitely in to see your results! There's a seller on the 'Bay that has a doserless funnel that's ready to go, but it's about 4x times as much as what you're receiving.

    Mazzer Super Jolly Doserless Conversion

    I'm putting together my doserless setup because I'm not super fond of the doser. Are you using the antistatic grid?

    Commercial Espresso at Home, Advice Needed

    The gentleman with the screenname, poison, would recommend the Astra Pro. It seems like a solid performer. It's not a dual boiler, it's a heat exchanger machine.

    Commercial Espresso at Home, Advice Needed

    I've really been looking into a Breville dual boiler. It seems to have great reviews and has a lot of features that I want.

    Commercial Espresso at Home, Advice Needed

    My primary question would be, "why do you want a 2 group unit for your apartment?" Having said this, I live in an apartment and want a commercial 2 group. HA! The La Marzocco GS3 seems to be a pretty solid prosumer unit that does very well at home and for a smaller café and requires only 110...

    How many cups of coffee do you drink per day?

    It's relative to what your 'cup' size is. I consume anywhere between 32 and 48 ounces of drip coffee a day.

    Baratza Purchased - Roasted Coffee Recommendations?

    As already mentioned, look into Intelligenstia. I'm sure there's plenty of local roasters that are top notch. If you want to purchase via mail, there's such a huge selection. I'm a fan of Supersonic, Cartel Coffee Lab, Coava, Heart, and Portola. I have some great local options like Blue...

    I want to like coffee, was it an acquired taste?

    This, 100 times this. I've had mochas from my favorite local coffee shop that tasted like chocolate chip banana bread because there was such a strong banana note with the espresso. So many great roasters out there. I'm not sure how great that coffee is, but I would most certainly assume you'd...

    Reliable drip machine for home? Recommendations please

    For what it's worth, Williams-Sonoma has an extra 30% off their sale stuff and the Mokkamaster is on there. Total comes to $132, I do believe.

    What's your coffee today? What brew method? Photos

    Sorry for no picture, I didn't think of taking one. Today has been nothing but pour-overs via the V60. I just received my Acaia Black Pearl and a black Fellow Stagg kettle. Both are quality pieces I'm happy to have. Earlier I had Ethiopia Jipat from Heart. Just now, Cartel's Santa Isabel...
