Super Secret Ultra Gold Member (6/6)



  1. I don’t worry about long draw downs on pour over anymore.
  2. It’s… so hideous it’s hideous.
  3. I wanna see pictures of the HeadSave! Talk about a blast from the past! I love that it’s still up and running.
  4. Swapped the Slim onto an orange Hermes barenia strap. I think I like it, at least for very casual wear. Hermes sure makes a nice strap.
  5. It’s small, but has plenty of room for an engraving on the back. I think it’s quite lovely. Box and papers makes presentation nice. HAQ movement to boot, which is silly since it has no seconds hand and it’s not like you can read it particularly accurately! Surprisingly weighty.
  6. I bought this Credor as a wedding gift for Heather (she won’t get it until July of next year, but I thought it was perfect, so I went ahead and got it). I’ve never handled a Credor before. The lettering looks like it was done by hand, which I believe is a hallmark of Credor watches. It’s very small, 21mm, and I hope there is enough room on the back to engrave the date on it. I don’t think I’ll be able to get initials, too. It’s supposed to be in mint condition; still has the sticker on the back. Coming from Japan, of course.
  7. I have a new grail: Berneron Mirage. It’s vaguely attainable, as a grail should be. Sort of like a Crash, but boozy instead of Dali-esque.
  8. I tried a new coffee roaster/shop in Cincinnati. Up the street from me. It was really good. I figured I would really challenge it with decaf. Pretty good!
  9. There is ever always room at the conspicuous side of the price envelope.
  10. I had the opportunity to handle some Pateks, when I had the Chopard in to have the strap replaced (gold makes me nervous). In hand there is nothing between the Chopard LUC and a Calatrava. Having said that, next time I feel like throwing down a house down payment I might get a Golden Ellipse for me and a Gondolo for Heather, as it’s a gorgeous pairing, and isn’t too “cutesy,” I think. Maybe for our tenth wedding anniversary (gotta get married first!).
  11. I’m on the road with the Flair Pro 2, the Bellman, and the Orphan Lido OG grinder. Not a bad setup for a little latte in the morning. I’ve found soaking the brew chambers in boiling water to be the most effective way to go.
  12. Looking at the 01, I don’t think it’s a particular upgrade, no: I think they just had the idea to use the 102mm size for the blind burrs, and here is the result. I would just keep and enjoy your P100: it’s an end game grinder, after all! Thanks for the feedback on the noise! Oatmeal Johnny doesn’t mind the Ode, which is a deeper sound, but hates the higher pitch of the Niche. I bet the P100 would do the job, if I were to decide to open up my coffee budget (I’ve only allowed myself a strict amount, which I’ve kept under even after having to replace the Breville: the P100 would certainly blow that!).
  13. Black Cat is a pretty sweet for medium dark roast; I don’t consider it a negative for espresso, but I could see why others would. I’ve been using Elmhurst Pistachio milk for my milk drinks, lately. It’s delicious, and if even I can get basic latte art with it I would say it’s easy to work with. Recommended. Sorry about the Argos taking so long! AeroPress will happily show you exactly what you are getting from your grinder, and I bet that is a delicious cup. How loud is the P100, Bryan? One of my cats hates the Niche (doesn’t mind other grinders): it’s maybe not enough on its own to get me to spend so much on one, but I take his well-being seriously, so maybe it’s a good excuse!
  14. I have a Tiffany branded lizard strap coming for the Chopard. I think it’ll look great; and will fit my wrist well. Going with Milanese mesh on the old Omega. This might be the perfect bracelet for it. I love this watch.
  15. The Chopard is very beautiful. Extremely fine. Also very heavy! It’s a chunk of white gold, and at 39.5mm fairly large. I really like it. Under 7mm, automatic. The dial is almost iridescent blank, it’s so deep. I wish this had a display case back, as I believe this is a Geneva Seal movement, but that’s okay: most of my watches have solid backs. edit: I’ve worn it a bit the last day. I’ll have to either have a strap made or order a shorter one, as I’m on the first hole. It’s very comfortable, though: it wears very differently from the Hermes, despite the measurements being similar: the Chopard wears broader than it is, with the expanse of deeply reflective black dial, and it is physically much heavier. It gives the same feeling you get holding or wearing a Patek: it’s obviously a very fine thing even when compared to nice things. I think this is a keeper watch. I desire neither the Rolex 1908 Perpetual nor a Calatrava, anymore.
