    Coffee Drinkers?

    Love my Lido 3 but small it is not. Proper Head Case solution for you is something like a Comandante C40 or Kinu M47.

    Coffee Drinkers?

    hell yeah. i've been reading up on comparisons for drop coffee between niche and lido 3. largely ethiopian and kenyan. honestly i think i prefer south american coffee. the extra acidity from african is tough to balance... i guess it's probably not suppose to in some sense. you want fruit, you gotta have light roast with tons of acidity.

    Coffee Drinkers?

    this week i've made a few changes for my pour-over... the first change is a recipe adjustment to start using the '40-60 method' on my hario. the basic premise is to slow the brewing process a bit, segment out into smaller pours with more even extraction. it feels like i have more overall control. the end result so far is a more balanced coffee that isn't overwhelmed with acidic bitterness (which i'm finding hard to dial in on these light roast beans, specifically those from Africa). it also seems to be deeper underlying flavors like earthy and nutty. the second change is trying out third wave water packets. i really don't care enough about brewing with my own DIY water and this is already so pretentious to be mixing with distilled gallons, but i'll admit it does taste different. the coffee is softer and i think the acidity has more clarity. but it doesn't fundamentally change the taste compared to my own tap water. you get 12 gallons' worth for $15, not terrible, but i'll probably utilize it on occasion rather than all the time or perhaps with beans that are particularly expensive or good.
  14. some new(ish) stuff that's been on repeat for me: Mizmor - Cairn Chrch - Light Will Consume Us All Vanum - Ageless Fire Vukari - Aevum Blood Incantation - Hidden History of the Human Race general theme of the first four is a great sense of atmosphere. i'd find it hard to categorize any of them in a specific subgenre (well i guess mizmor and chrch are pretty solidly doom). blood incantation is just incredible. best pure death metal going right now.
