Coffee Drinkers?


Recommended Posts

I definitely use a finer grind with the aeropress than with my drip machine.  It's a balancing act so that it's still possible to use the plunger but at a very slow rate.  I tend to use 2-3 scoops.

This could be trouble. First results were very promising, if not entirely drinkable.  I'll toy with grind just a big more to get a full extraction but tomorrow morning should be fun and int

I was about to start a coffee-fi thread but I guess it's already here.  So I bought a Grindmaster OPOD a few years ago and it makes a great cup of coffee but my new apartment is fairly small so I need to seek some alternatives.  I'm thinking either Aeropress or Chemex or french press.  What do you guys think?

 

Also, my OPOD is still in almost perfect condition in box.  I think I bought it for $300ish.  I'll definitely give anyone a good deal or I can always trade for something.

can't go wrong with any of them.  I use my aeropress and french press regularly.  The coffee they make is different from each other, but both good.  Depends on your preferences.

Makes sense.  I only use a French press, so didn't feel qualified to comment on the other methods.  I imagine that some would do a better job of filtering out the extra fine grounds resulting from chopping, but you're right that they would not mitigate some of the other disadvantages.

So I have been buying full bags of green beans (60 kg - 132 lbs) for roasting for about 6 years now.  The price is great at that quantity.  Recently, I have been trying to sell a bit of the bag at cost so I can have more variety with our beans.  We go through a bag on our own in about 6 months.

 

I was wondering if there is anybody roasting here who would be interested in buying some beans?  If you don't roast, let me suggest that this is a fun hobby and saves money in the long run.  There is nothing like fresh roasted coffee.

 

If there is interest, maybe I will start a new thread??

 

Right now I have two partial bags:

Colombian Supremo Huila Valencia @ $2.93/lb plus shipping and minor costs like paypal, supplies.

 

and

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe G2 SpecialPrep @ $3.68/lb  "                 "

 

 

Anyone interested?  I could go as low as 2 lbs. but would prefer to do 5 lbs.  More is ok too.
