"Coffee Aficianados - Come here for a sec :)"


          

So I want to start experimenting with new coffees (no more starbucks).

I just copped this pour over from Dean & Deluca (i'm a sucker for design lol...i know a stove top coffee maker would probably be just as good) :

http://www.chemexcoffeemaker.com/coffeemakers/classic-series/six-cup-classic-series-coffeemaker.html

I like strong strong coffee lol
Black...no milk...no sugar....

So tell me everything you know about coffee.

What goes into making your perfect cup?
What is your favorite kind of coffee?
Where is your go to online shop for coffee?
Any coffee subscription services you use?
If you are NY/BK where do you buy your coffee?
Do you grind at home or get pre-ground?
etc, etc, etc


the key to happiness is not being rich;
it's doing something arduous and
creating something of value and then
being able to reflect on the fruits of your labor

The biggest thing for me now is using filtered water and a quality filter. I let the machine do the rest. It's gets the proper temp each and every time. That's like a HUGE part of the perfect cup...

No favorites....I tend to just explore and take notes of the ones I like and dislike. My go-to daily is surprisingly some cheap stuff from Trader Joes. Whole bean of course....but it's the Smooth and Mellow blend.

Haven't found one yet. The biggest thing I search out though is Fair Trade affiliated brands: http://fairtradeusa.org/products-partners/coffee
Also, i've ordered from these guys a few times:http://equalexchange.coop/products/coffee
Usually it's more fresh ordering direct, but it'll cost more than just finding it in the store. Most stores that carry good coffee will sell this brand..

yeah chemex has a whole system too that i think i may end up copping. specifically because i have read how important the right water temperature is. and the sprayhead technology stuff seems interesting lol

definitely on the filtered water tip. i copped the chemex filters too from amazon. yeah water temp is my only concern with my current set up. i have a verismo espresso machine from starbucks so i have been thinking i about brewing straight water from that and using for my pour over...going to test that out and see

I think that's what's always been my downfall with press, gravity, pour over, etc.... You know what...that's a BRILLIANT idea!! Let me know how that works...damn...that's really genius...
How would you get it to activate without a pod though? Does it work like that?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It makes a really clean-tasting cup. And it's fun to use.

I'm not against brew or any other method. I like each for different reasons.

But I just love the ritual of pour-over coffee. It's very relaxing.
It gives you the same kind of satisfaction as preparing tea, I think.


>What goes into making your perfect cup?

-Quality coffee, quality water, patience.


>What is your favorite kind of coffee?

-I've only had one true favorite coffee -- Intelligentsia's Rwanda Zirikana.

Besides that, actually prefer my coffee espresso style. I love a good capp or latte.

And for iced coffee... it's gotta be cold brewed and it's gotta have milk and sugar.


>Where is your go to online shop for coffee?

-Don't have one. But I'm partial to Intelligentsia, mainly because I have brand loyalty tendencies.


>Any coffee subscription services you use?

-Not yet, but I'm looking into it. I already do snack subs.


>Do you grind at home or get pre-ground?

-It's better to grind at home.

I like the chemex, it is good at making multiple cups of coffee. However the best coffee maker for me is the Aeropress:
http://aerobie.com/products/aeropress.htm

Makes 1 solid cup of really tasty coffee.

>I like strong strong coffee lol
>Black...no milk...no sugar....
>

Me too, before i got my aeropress, i always thought coffee was supposed to be bitter tasting, but using the aeropress really changed that.

>So tell me everything you know about coffee.
>
>What goes into making your perfect cup?
-Water: just below boiling, around 205 degrees fahrenheit
-Fresh ground coffee: using a burr grinder (instead of a blade grinder). I have the baratza encore grinder.
http://smile.amazon.com/Baratza-Encore-Conical-Coffee-Grinder/dp/B007F183LK/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1419000002&sr=1-1&keywords=baratza+encore&pebp=1418999989244
- With the aeropress i do the inverted method
http://stumptowncoffee.com/brew-guides/aeropress/


>What is your favorite kind of coffee?
>Where is your go to online shop for coffee?
>Any coffee subscription services you use?
I used Tonx, but they were purchased by Blue Bottle Coffee, they have a nice rotation of coffees from around th:

>If you are NY/BK where do you buy your coffee?
>Do you grind at home or get pre-ground?
I grind at home.
>etc, etc, etc

>

The next step for me is to buy my own coffee roaster and get unroasted beans. Unroasted beans are a lot cheaper than roasted beans, and will be a lot fresher tasting.

In response to Reply # 6


  

          

Not only does it make a tasty cup of joe, but it comes out nice and strong every time. I like making mine using the reverse method where you turn the areopress around.

The one thing with the Areopress is it's really making espresso and not just a regular cup of coffee, with the right roast you can have a great latte.

In response to Reply # 6


  

          

add to that making my own version of 'bullet coffee'

sounds crazy but..

spoon of coconut oil and a small pat of grass fed butter + strong black coffee + blender = the richest, most creamy deliciousness ever.

my life is has changed because of this method.

i'll post this method again in a reply to the original.

pour-over is the preferred method where I'm from
I have a olleta: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_BxWQxrJB7wA/TLMHj8Z9SQI/AAAAAAAAAPw/dfV2oISvn4I/s400/Chocolate+Pot.jpg (don't let the chocolate throw you off, we also use it to make coffee)

and a colador: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-NfNS3Cu3N-I/TmJRFLRDO-I/AAAAAAAAAa8/XVdtis5cJ_I/s1600/colador+de+caf%25C3%25A9.jpg

I heat the water until just before it hits the boiling point in my tea kettle
heat my milk in a small saucepan or in the microwave if I'm a rush and sweeten with sugar
spoon coffee into the colador and place it into the olleta
bloom the coffee grounds first then pour in the desired amount of water, removing the colador a little before the water level reaches the grounds so I won't get that astringent, bitter after taste.

here for dis.

I have no issues with it

I have a french press but the coffee maker fits my needs at the moment, I don't have the time..

That Aeropress mentioned above seems to be right up my alley for work, I might check it out

The design of that Chemex is sick, it's too nice for my kitchen though, I have to remodel first... lol

edit: Oh I find that cold filtered water does the trick for the coffee machine, imo

I normally go to old city coffee in Philly to get my coffee apparently they have a website and they do ship but I like going to the store and picking from the various flavors plus I want my card stamped (you buy so many, you get one free)
http://www.oldcitycoffee.com/

If not there I'll get that Ethiopian Coffee from Trader Joes
http://www.traderjoes.com/fearless-flyer/article/475


or at this local coffee shop near the house that sells fair trade

i'm thinking that's what you mean by a brew system...

A good drip coffee brewer is the closest you're going to get to the combination of consistency and ease of use....

the mochamaster I linked above came highly recommended and I highly recommend it too...

I lucked up and grabbed a refurbished one when it was available. Haven't had a single problem with it. I imagine refurbs are simply folks that return them because they had buyers remorse or something.

of that portion of your counter....that's if you orient it that way. Takes up the space of about two regular cuisineart brewers. But it's taller than any other brewer i've ever seen.
It's just big lol...
Don't plan on putting it away outta site every day.
They also have multiple colors now if that's your thing....but those seem to be hard to find in the USA.

24. "Aeropress + coconut oil + grass fed butter = life changer"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

strong, smooth coffee made with a good quality bean thats been quality roasted, made in my aeropress, add in spoon of coconut oil and a small pat of grass fed butter and blend = the richest, most creamy deliciousness ever that is actually GOOD for you.

my life is has changed because of this method.

a cup of this coffee alone is probably about 10x healthier than your current breakfast, and it has the calories to match (think meal replacement).

Have a cup of this stuff, and have a GREAT morning with no crash later!!

here's my formula:

aeropress best coffee maker in the world. basically its a manual espresso machine so you're making americano's.. which if you've ever had one.. you know they taste waaaay better than drip coffee.

aeropress: http://aerobie.com/products/aeropress.htm

coconut oil: coconut oil is rich in MCT (medium chain triglycerides) which bind with the caffeine molecules and release them slowly so you have no crash. There are many health benefits to MCT's which you can see below in the details.


grassfed butter (UNSALTED):

Grass-fed butter. Rich in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a fatty acid produced by ruminants like cows, it’s been implicated in many studies as having beneficial effects. Grain-fed cows do not produce as much CLA in their milk as their grass-fed counterparts. Grass-fed butter also contains an Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio that’s basically 1:1 (that’s very GOOD). If you’ve ever seen pale (almost white) butter, the poor stick of saturated fat is lacking in beta carotene. Where to get bright yellow butter? You guessed it, cows fed on grass. In addition to all this, grass-fed butter contains more fat-soluble vitamins like K2 (which is converted from K1 by cows).

Directions:

Prepare the coffee, scaling the recipe up to suit your needs. I use the aeropress and make it nice and strong. my personal brand of coffee is an award winning local roaster: http://www.blackcoffeeroastingco.com

Pour hot coffee into a wide-mouth mason jar. Add the grass-fed butter and coconut oil, plus any extras like spices or sweetener if preferred.
Blend for 30 seconds with a hand blender (I have a Braun) until frothy and creamy (use caution when using a blender with hot liquids).

prepare to have your life changed.


DETAILS:

Health Benefits To Bulletproof Coffee:

Fat Loss Anyone? Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT), found in coconut oil, consumption has been shown to lead to greater losses of the adipose tissue (fat) in animals and humans.

More Energy For You! Studies have shown that the fast rate of oxidation of MCFA (Medium chain fatty acids) leads to increase energy expenditure (EE). It is absorbed differently in the body as opposed to long chain fatty acids.

Eating Fat Will Make Me Fat…NOPE!! Greater energy expenditure with MCFA relative to long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) results in less body weight gain and decreased size of fat depots after several months of consumption.

Why Grass Fed Butter? Fresh grass in the cow diet improves the rheological and nutritional properties of butter. The nutritional value of butter is improved by the proportion of fresh grass in the diet of cows by halving the atherogenicity index.

You’re Trying To Give Me a Heart Attack!! Despite the high saturated fat content of dairy products, no clear association between dairy product intake and risk of myocardial infarction (MI) has been observed.

Gain Muscle – Both exercise and coffee raise cellular energy use while simultaneously inhibiting your muscle building mechanisms (mTOR) for a brief period, which causes it to “spring back” and build even more muscle as soon as you eat. There are 3 known ways to raise mTOR. Intermittent fasting, exercise, and coffee.

i actually had looked at the bullet coffee stuff a few months back but never pulled the trigger.

i think i ran into some skeptic articles and never finished my research.

i really like the idea of it being a meal replacement because most days i skip breakfast anyway and coffee is my breakfast....smh :/

so definitely going to revisit.

so far so good but i think i need to reduce the amount of coconut oil i put in. lol i used two tablespoons and feel kinda jittery. i bought this coconut il from whole foods which has 95% MCTs: http://www.naturesway.com/Liquid-Coconut-Oil-20-oz

also what brand of grass fed butter do you use?
i found this in whole foods and am giving it a try: http://www.organicvalley.coop/products/butter/cultured/cultured-unsalted-1-lb-4-quarters/

i also used an aeropress to brew the coffee. i didn't use a blender though. i saw a video with a tip to just use a stainless steel tumbler and shake the coffee, butter and coconut oil.

>What goes into making your perfect cup?

I drink either authentic jamaica blue mountain (M.E. Swings preferably), or a good ethiopian bean from Sidamo. Both places are in dc. For me, using a french press or pour over has yielded the best results but I'm not above making a drip pot as for which, I'll just use some arabica commercial bean, but fresh as possible.

>Where is your go to online shop for coffee?

Don't have one. D.C. has so many great places to go.

>If you are NY/BK where do you buy your coffee?

Whenever I'm there, I go to Blue Bottle or Gorilla.

>Do you grind at home or get pre-ground?

Depends on the bean. I prefer to grind at home, however.

46. "Between Aeropress, French press and Pour over... Aero is my default"
In response to Reply # 0
Mon Dec-22-14 11:20 AM by Cocobrotha2

          

Because it makes the most consistent cup, to me.

The pour over can make a great cup but I feel like it's the most sensitive to water temperature and the grind of the beans.

The French Press is great if I want to make an especially strong cup of coffee.

Blue Mountain is my new favorite. I picked up a bag of beans when I went in the Spring and I've been slowly working my way through that. I had a coworer pick up another bag recently so that should get me through the winter.

My coworker put me onto Aeropress and he suggested the steel filter. I can't really taste a difference but it's a bit more of a hassle to clean.

I imagine a metal filter being a hassle because you'd have to remove it and be sure not to push it out into the trashcan every time. With the paper, I can just push it and be done....

I made my first cup with it soon as it arrived yesterday....
I was quite frankly blown away....for multiple reasons....
the ease.
the low cost.
the simplicity.
the low cost.
the ease....
the taste..
the TASTE...
THE TASTE!!!
I can't WAIT to try it with some top shelf beans....

For brewing one cup......this is gonna be what I use pretty frequently I believe....
For large pots, i'll stick with my Moccamaster though...

I have gotten some GREAT pots out of the Moccamaster....but honestly nothing like this.
Buy it!

They used to roast out of their shop in Carroll Gardens, but now they have a plant out in Red Hook. The shop on Court Street is still pretty great though. Wide array of roasts, solid service, and it's been around forever.

Does it really matter?
Or is the grinder type the most important thing to consider when choosing a grinder (i.e. burr or otherwise)?

>Does it really matter?

Grinder type is what matters:

- With a regular blade grinder, beans are chopped up leaving the ground beans at different sizes. Different sizes of ground beans can affect the taste.
- Blade grinders generate heat in the blades, which will affect the taste of the ground beans because it slightly heat the beans, releasing flavor early.

A burr grinder crushes beans rather evenly, without the heat generated by blade grinders.

In addition, with a burr grinder, you are better able to control the level of your grind (fine ground, medium ground, etc).

In response to Reply # 60


          

i am doing bulletproof coffee using the aeropress during the week and on the weekends i am brewing with the chemex.

i must say....i am in love lol...so happy with this purchase

just ordered a scale to make my coffee making kit complete lol

the key to happiness is not being rich;
it's doing something arduous and
creating something of value and then
being able to reflect on the fruits of your labor
