Well, it would make her happy. At least until the crushing realization of her material existence sets in.

nah it's also got something to do with the hourglass shape of the coffee maker and the filter - the water stays in the grounds for a more specific amount of time depending on the coarseness of the grind, which is something drip makers don't really have a mechanism for and apparently this affects the bitterness and the flavour of the coffee a lot. maybe gravity is involved too? science? i read about this like four times on the chemex website and i still can't figure out the logistics of it but the cute guy with the beard at salt spring coffee told me to buy one and all the online reviews i have read seem to be glowing so i got a pretty good feeling about this thing.

also... yeah i'll be honest, i want people to know i am better than them when they walk into my apartment and see my fancy coffee maker. i live in a shallow city that is obsessed with coffee, you got to do what you got to do

maybe gravity is involved too? science?

Oh Tania, when will you learn. "Science" is just the Devil's magic!

I think that within a few years I'll have a Doc Brown-esque coffee maker in the morning. Whats all this "single use" cup shit? Just get a cafetiere. Costs like £5. For $179.95 I could get one of my housemates to get me coffee AND a handjob every morning for a good while.

But man got a bean grinder for my birthday (parents scoped that out) and damn thats some good coffee. Now, normal instant coffee isn't good enough. I have to get "Gold" or whatever shit is slightly different tasting.

And for the love of God coffee manufacturers, stop saying coffee has "nutty" under/overtones.

My ill will toward K-cup and similar machines is the waste that comes from all the miniature packaging.

I know a guy who has an Aeropress and thinks very highly of it.  Enough that I'm tempted to buy one for myself - I don't enjoy drip coffee but I do enjoy espresso.  And to buy it at a local brick-and-mortar establishment will only set me back about $35.

If the barista is asking for anything less than a Kirby Puckett MVP card and a pack of Gushers, it's not a fair trade.

I only trade Kent Hrbeks for coffee, sorry Groupon.

Coffee thread, as much as it hurts me to admit...I'm back on the coffee bandwagon. Drinkin' it like gangbusters. Why did I ever stop for a year and a half? IT'S SO TASTY.

Hey everyone, I need to buy some new bookshelves. When I get back from Ikea and put them together you're all invited to the bookshelf launch party.
