Took me a sec to realize what you meant. No, I have had chicken scratch handwriting since elementary, am dyslexic, and am fortunate to live in the age of computers. I also quickly wrote it while sitting on my bed and didn't do my best to write neatly. Always hated writing as a kid, is why I never really kept a journal, and why I first invested in gaining graphic design autisium.

Moka pot user here. Why does the resulting coffee taste sour? I don't tamp, I use filtered boiled water, filled below the valve, put it on low heat and wrap a cold towel around the pot when it starts hissing. Can't blame the grind size because the beans were fresh before being ground from the place I bought them. Switching to whole bean with a grinder when this batch is finished. Also why does the small bit of leftover water in the bottom chamber smell awful?
>>
>>12569828
How fast does the brew spout out from the top? I have noticed if it comes out very slow it can be too sour. The left over water in the chamber smells bad cause its over brewed bitter coffee from sitting in there and is the left over bitter part of the extraction towards the end.
>>
>>12569898
Initially, it is quite slow, but then speeds up when the last bit hisses and rises up fast like a fountain. I have an electric hob, which has a 1-6 setting. I'll try it on 3 tomorrow and go from there. Thanks for the info lad. I was worried my filter might be faulty.
>>
>>12569898
>>12569915
Forgot to add, I had been using it 2 until now, maybe that's too low? But then I've seen people say use a low heat. Maybe that's only for gas?
>>
>>12569927
Yeah gas gets hotter better. Also for electric hob you want to use the smallest burner and use medium heat, and want to pre heat it. I turn mine on as soon as I set my electric kettle to boil the water for the pot.
I also watch how fast the brew comes out. If it's a little slow I let the brew get closer to the end before I cold towel it; adds more bitters. Also if its just a tiny bit too sour, the smallest pinch of salt fixes it.
>>
>>12569959

Sometimes I'll read the labels on coffee bags and they often do stupid logistical shit like shipping beans from central america to an EU country to get roasted and then they get shipped again to the US to be sold.
And they still sell it for under $6/lbs, Aldi and Ikea both do this and I don't see how it's cost effective unless the green beans themselves cost practically nothing.
>>
>>12571120
To be fair Aldi's is based in Europe so it makes sense to just handle the operation there then just ship it with slightly different packaging to the USA with all the other products they ship over.
>>

>>
>>12571140
>>12571120
Aldi purchase finished products with their label on them and ship them worldwide to their warehouses, so my aldi coffee in australia is also made in germany.
Coffee made in Africa is done in West Africa (Ethiopia where it is native and first discovered 600 years ago), Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Madagascar) and some of the largest ports are in those countries.
A 40 foot container will fit roughly 42,000kg of unroasted beans. That is worth over $100,000 USD (the base price of coffee being roughly $2.50 per KG)
The cost of shipping a container from west africa to europe is only a couple thousand at the most.
Shipping is a very minor cost of production in any major worldwide supply chain.

I read that you should tamp the ground lightly, do you guys do that? Also the coffee should come out in a steady stream and not sputter until the end right?
>>

Most places I've read say don't tamp. So I don't. And yeah, splutter almost near the end, and then it quickly rises up like a fountain - then I run it under a cold tap immediately.

I use a french press to make my coffee, but I always have fine grounds at the end of my cup, meaning I can never drink the less bit of liquid in the cup. Am I doing something wrong or is my french press shit?
>>
Del taco black coffee, tastes like piss
>>
>>12574186
That always happens unless you want use a separate strainer for the last bit
>>
>>12574217
I tried using a cloth filter and it made literally zero difference though
>>
>>12574271
I meant when you pour your coffee out of the french press you pour it through another strainer. You do that and you still get grounds?
There is that guy's technique of leaving the coffee to brew in the press for 8+ mins, allowing all the sediments and grounds to sink to the bottom. Then he sort of decants the coffee so you have zero sediment in your cup.
>>
>>12574282
>pour your coffee out of the french press you pour it through another strainer
That's what I've tried yeah, didn't work. I usually leave the coffee to sit for about 5 mins, press the valve all the way down and pour. I pour it straight into a clear measuring jug, the pour that into the mug, and just before everything is out of the jud I stop at the last 5 or so % because it's full of fine grounds. I then drink the mug of coffee, and even finer grounds make an almost paste-looking mass at the bottom of the mug, part of which is still swimming around in the last sip.
>>
>>12574305
It is quite normal and in fact having those small particles in the coffee gives it more body. Is the amount you get at the bottom a lot?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=st571DYYTR8
You can try this if it really bothers you, he doesn't put plunger down all the way, only slightly under the surface of the liquid, which helps to prevent the sediments from stirring. Another thing could be your grinder itself is not good enough and produces too much fine particles. Your last resort would be to use a paper coffee filter.
>>
>>12574347
>Is the amount you get at the bottom a lot?
it's enough to be unpleasant yeah. It doesn't really give it body as much as it makes it feel like drinking sand. I would go for the filter but I don't have a machine, so by the time it's filtered, it'd be cold

I will try that thing with not putting the plunger the whole way down. I usually press it until I can feel it squish the grounds, so I can get the most intense tasting part out.

This has a different smell than pure arabica. Not sure how to describe it. Also the grounds are smaller and seem more like real espresso grounds. Brewed up slower I think because of that. Also was really dark and had the appearance of red wine. Black and diluted gets fruity, chocolate, slight sour notes, but then you get this earthy wet, sappy wood notes. It kind of reminds me of pepper trees in Florida, minus the shitty parts of them. Also holds up to half&half really well: kept its dark color. I can see why people might have an aversion to robusta, but I liked it. I know this is a 70%arabica/30%robusta, so it'll be interesting to try the other ones which are reversed.
>>12572475
Thank you based business anon.
>>12574029
Post results. There has been interest in "specialty" robusta.
>>12574044
Yes, but very carefully. Usually now after dunking the filter basket in the grinds, I tap it along the sides to fill in any possible gaps or pockets, then level with a butter knife. That's the main point of "tamping" in a moka pot; to fill any possible gaps. Not so much to compress it like you would for espresso. If there are hidden gaps, it brews too fast and is too bitter.
>>12574088
You too man. It can be a bitch to get sometimes. Worst part is needing health insurance so you can visit the doc every 6 months, just so they can basically go, "You good? Still need it? See you in six."

if I make 1L of cold brew coffee, how many servings will I get out of it? five?
>>
>>12575346
>1L of cold brew coffee
What do you mean by this, final volume of coffee or 1L of water initially? If you mean final volume then the servings depends on how much you drink. I would have thought that's self-explanatory.
>>
>>12575363
1l of water initially
>>
>>12575372
Depends on the amount of grinds you use, more grinds = more water absorbed and less coffee juice. Generally it absorbs twice its weight in water, i.e. 100g of coffee means 200g of water is absorbed and you're left with 800g. Some variables would be size of grind and type of coffee bean.
>>
>>12575424
ok so more or less what I assumed initially
800ml of coffee concentrate, 200ml a serving (1/3 concentrate, 1/3 milk, 1/3 water) using 100g of coffee
that said, is 100g per 1l standard? it wont be too weak?
>>
>>12575448
That is more up to personal preference rather than any fixed formula. Personally I use a 1:8 ratio and drink with equal parts coffee and milk.

I realised that, my point was using grams and fluid grams is quite retarded, especially when you end up using g for both because it eventually becomes too tedious to use fl g.
>>12583464
Do you buy your beans from Amazon? Do buy beans freshly roasted if you can, it affects the quality greatly. I'm not an American so it may be different for you but I saw coffee being sold there months past their roast date for me + the weeks-long delivery time.

V60s aren't my favorite, but if you can spare a little time, get some good filters and strain the product you get from your V60, then you can save for a different method you'll like more. V60 is pretty muddy, but I like to think it's pretty good.
You'd probably be better off with a chemex pourover method.

>>12591801
French press is shit. It's beloved by a few retards for two reasons:
1. It has the word "French" in it and people who don't care about coffee don't realize that French people are literally famous for making bad coffee
2. It produces a distinctly different cup than filter brew, and if you're a babby beginner that difference on its own is enough to validate the decision to use French press

In a way it reminds me of people who eat badly cooked beef like gelatinous blue rare hamburgers. They heard it was cool and gourmet, they're too pussy to eat tartare or carpaccio, and they don't have enough sense to understand why fucked up ruined lukewarm meat is bad.

could using cheap instant coffee be the reason why my skin gets irritated after drinking a few cups? something during processing or made from moldy beans?

I know. Granted I'm not that knowledgeable on traditional Mexican or south American garb. Its borderline saterical cause when Columbus "discovered" the Americas he was trying to find a better route to India. Landed on a new continent, realize he wasn't in India, but called the natives Indians anyways. Its even more odd that it has blue eyes, but that could be aesthetics.
>>

kek.

>>12599130
But coffee wasn't introduced to the Americas until the 1700s.
Columbus washing up on the South American shores introduced Europe to xocolatle, which they enjoyed as the hot beverage of choice for a few hundred years until the Pope accepted "the Muslim drink" as acceptable for Christians.

If your trying to flex your history knowledge I'm enjoying it. I agree with you its weird, and that it really only makes sense from a satirical view of Columbus calling south American natives Indians.

>>12599373
No flexing here I genuinely can't wrap my head around using Plains Injun imagery to sell an African bean popularized by Muslins

It's fucking bizarre.
>>
>>12599382
I wouldn't think about it too hard. It is marketing after all. If I had to go with my gut, this brand had probably been around for a long while, and I think Europe tends to correlate the Americas with cowboys and Indians due to shows being imported from overseas. The plains Indian look is a stereotypical character for American, north and south, indigenous people; even if it's not accurate.

Cowboys I can understand since they actually did drink coffee, but it's something they drank while shooting injuns and it's still got nothing at all to do with South America where the bean is grown.
>>
>>12599432
Your thinking to literally and not from a pop culture aspect.
>>
>>12599477
European pop culture knows damn well what a plains injun is, the Germans made sure of that.
>>
>>12599484
This is where the satire of the misnomer due to Columbus comes in. At least that's how it makes sense to me.

You keep saying satire but I don't see anything satirical here at all.

I think im using that word wrong. It's more of an ironic in-joke now that I think about it.
>>

I don't see anything facetious here, either.
Just an incomprehensible choice of mascot.
>>
>>12599642
I mean 90s ironic. The joke of using a know misnomer as your mascot image for Italian coffee from south America.
>>
>>12599674
That's what facetious means, yes.
>>
>>12599686
Then im an idiot that rationalizes it as an in-joke for Italians about the misnomer of south/central native people being Indians and using plains Indian pop culture iconography.

>the misnomer of south/central native people being Indians
How is it a misnomer to refer to South/Central American Natives as Indians and but to refer to North American Natives as Indians isn't? Out of all the Natives of The Americas, the first tribes to be referred to as Indians were from the Caribbean.

Lately I have been cracking eggs into my coffee to save time. Makes the shit instant coffee taste much better.
>>
>>12601030
I'm glad you found something you enjoy but that sounds horrific. Have you considered blending the following together: Milk, chocolate mix/syrup, egg, instant coffee.
>>
>>12574003
I hope this is bait
>>
>>12601305
I usually put milk in first to bring the temperature down so the eggs don’t stsrt to cook.
Good idea on the chocolate, the more calories the Better.
>>
>>12600841
It's a misnomer to call any indigenous people from America Indians. I only mentioned south/ central cause of context.

This is basically how I've been preparing coffee for the last 6 or so years. I'd like to mix things up. Should I go for the Chemex or the Hario V60 or some other pour-over system?

I never get that much krema in my moka pot. Is there any particular twist to getting it?
>>
>>12603465
that's a bialetti moka pot, which apparently is the only one they make that produces something resembling crema.

apparently you can mix sugar with something else (forgot what) to make crema. google will help.

Why does my coffee taste better from the cup than from the french press? Am I doing something wrong?
>>
Coffee noob here, wana start brewing my own. My buddy told me I don't even have to buy a coffee maker, just put the beans in water in a mason jar over night/s in the fridge, then drain out the coffee when I want it. I want to drink ice coffee and add cbd tincture, and I don;t have room on my counter for another appliance (small kitchen) so this sounds like a good method to me.

I guess I'm really asking, what fucking beans do I buy as a noob? What are good quality, non-meme beans? I'm not sure what flavors I'll be privy too, so I guess I'm at a stage where I'll be trying a few out until I find what I like.
>>
>>12603613
Stop drinking your coffee straight out of the french press
>>
>>12603627
It's called cold brewing. You grind your beans into a coarse grind and let them sit over a 12-24/hr period in a mason jar if the fridge and then filter it into another jar using a coffee filter after (I've had good results using a tea strainer as a prefilter before putting through a coffee strainer helps cut down on the time to strain). It's actually nice if you don't want or like acidity in your coffee. You can use any beans for it. Don't worry about the bean meme if you're new just buy whatever medium roast or even mass produced canned grounds to try things out and move on to different beans from there.
>>
Coffee came out perfect today. Im kinda starting to like robusta.
>>12602597
What exactly does crema taste like? I know you can uasally only get it from legit espresso and is something Italians obsesse over trying to get from their moka pot.
>>12603627
You can soak the whole bean, but your not going to get a strong result. Just buy one of those Mason jar cold brew kits and either buy ground or get whole beans ground at a grocery store near you. Also don't bother getting coffee that says its citrusy or acidic as cold brew doesn't extract those flavors.

Explain to an uneducated coffee drinkist the problem with Keurig. It’s convenient and tastes alright

Just got a bur grinder, surprised how much of a difference it actually makes (in a French press) .
It has a Turkish coffee setting and I'm going to try it this weekend.
>>
>>12603841
It's wasteful.
>>
>>12603913
Is it because there’s too many grounds in a serving to account for bigger sizes? I guess I can see that
>>
>>12603957
Not to mention the individual packaging

Well, its just overall not very cost efficient. The markup for K-cups is way higher then just buying pre-ground coffee in a 12/16 oz bag, even accounting for packaging. Plus you can't adjust the ratios to your taste, which you sort of hinted at. Its sometimes argued that its great for brewing quickly, but you can brew a much better cup with a slightly lengthened brew time by doing a pour over. Keurig's are a scam, but it is a somewhat attractive/novel way to make coffee honestly.
>>
>>12603841
If you use the reusable (fill with your own coffee) k-cups it's not that bad
>>
>>12604011
>>12604004
This. Its just a very pricey machine that has a tendency to make inferior coffee compared to even the cheapest drip machine. I can see why its popular in office settings though. Also a while back I visited my parents who use an off brand cuisinart k*rig, and the brew wasn't too bad. Although they use the refillable cup and I noticed it was bigger and longer than most refillable k-cups.
>>12603872
That sounds good. Might look into premium robusta after finding the best basic bitch brick coffee.
>>
>>12604075
I'm fairly new to non-instant coffee. bought a moka pot about 2 months ago and haven't looked back.
>>
What is better? French press or moka pot?
>>
Gotta ask, does anyone else directly eat ground coffee instead of preparing it? I get a much higher energy boost when I ingest it this way, even more than from energy drinks and those caffeine pills.
>>
>>12604264
no because it's horrible. whole bean on the otjer hand is nice.
>>
>>12603841
Keurigs are impossible to fully deep clean.
Putting aside scale buildup from hard water, microbe growth is completely outside your ability to fix.
Any rancid coffee left in the machine just sits until you get around to putting cleaner through it, which, let's be honest here, are you really going to do that after every use?
>>
>>12604181
Depends on what you like and your skill level.
>>
>>12603465
Depends on many factors (e.g. amount of coffee, amount of water, bean type, etc.) and usually isn't very stable either. It's nothing compared to real crema from an espresso machine.
>>
>>12604004
>but it is a somewhat attractive/novel way to make coffee honestly.
It's just consistent and easy to do which solves coffee for 99% of the population. Most people don't care about temperatures, grind, roasts or anything else except for pushing a button and getting the same coffee they prefer from whatever prepacked box they bought.

Basically. They have this or one that is cheaper that can't brew coffee, but foams milk.
https://youtu.be/JeWjIEPvKQo
>>
>>12607752
Theres lots of electric heated milk frothers available on amazon with minimum levels of 100ml that would work fine.
The other alternative would be to have a microwavable tempered pitcher and then use a manual milk frother.

Couple of questions:
1. Why do coffee beans from big brands have a "glossy" look, while locally roasted ones are more "matte"?
2. Are lighter roasts supposed to be sour/acidic?
>>
>>12612433
that's a really good find ill have to compile a list

Is there any such thing as a 3-in-1 grinder, kettle and french press?
>>
>>12612549
I can't even imagine how such a thing would work
>>
>>12612527
1. Big corps roast in a shorter time at much higher temperatures.
2. The correct term is "fruity".
>>
>>12608160
For me it’s don Fransisco dark
>>
>>12568972
Light, Medium or Dark roast lads?

>>12612777

Does anyone know of roasters in America that offer specialty robusta? The couple links I have seen posted on here are euro based. The only things I can find are cringe like death wish and black riffle or similar edge marketed robusta. So far the only ones I can find on Amazon is vietnamese based robusta.
>>12612777

For $9 they were pretty shit. It was 4 smaller pancakes that were flat. Description made it sound like they put the cream and caramel on each pancake. What I got was 3 plain pancakes, with the top one having a little bit of drizzle on it. Waste of money. Should have just driven down to Dennys.
