is coffee good for you?
is that smoked coffee
>>19915753think it's bong smoke drawn through coffee instead of water
>>19915685guys. i really want a hot girl to piss on me after a couple of cups of coffee.>imagine the smell.
What a shit thread. Fuck you all.
>>19915950guess you will have to wait for the discount like the other guy
>>19915612this does make sense but then again, finland drinks the most out of any country and I'm not sure they have that many great roasters comparatively? maybe they just drink so much that quality doesn't even factor in
Why has no one invented a decent grinder with easily swappable burrs for pour-overs and espresso so that you can have the best of both worlds without buying 2 separate grinders?
>>19916129There are many grinders on the market that let you swap burrs between espresso focused and pour-over focused. Are you talking about swapping between flat and conical burrs? That's a bit trickier, I think there's one or two that do that.
>>19916129you mean the niche duo?
>>19916129you mean the cafesing?
>>19916151>There are many grinders on the market that let you swap burrs between espresso focused and pour-over focused.Yeah this is what I mean. Pls tell me of some and which one you might recommend.>>19916158Seems like a hassle to swap. I meant something you could swap the burrs of daily in like a minute or 2.>>19916165Huh... Turns out I'm just not good at finding what I want. This is basically what I was talking about but now I just gotta find out if it's worth it or not.
>>19916343>I meant something you could swap the burrs of daily in like a minute or 2great. you can swap the niche duo burrs in less than 2 minutes if you go slow.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEJnoRCiUJEprobably under a minute if you go fast.
what regions do you guys prefer to get coffee beans from or regions you avoid
>>19916427Costa Rica has always been so good and I'm not sure why. #1 beans region for me.
>>19916427burundi from the kibingo regioncosta rica is pretty consistently great guatemalaindonesia
>>19916427Various from all over latin america. I'm less keen on african stuff.
>>19916427Ethiopian is my default. I use it for both pour over and espresso. Guatemalan and Columbian are good too, but for whatever reason they're usually only really good for certain brewing methods. I prefer to just have a 1kg bag for all my needs.
>>19914767I'm being generous, have a (you)>caffeine is bad for youhttps://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/hsph-in-the-news/coffee-longer-life/>>19916427Costa Rica. Gotta support those niggas, they're the only non-shithole south of the border, they even have drinkable tap water. Beautiful country that is now a middle-income country and has nice people
>>19916711>1kg baghow much do you go through per day? I go through about 1lb (~450g) per month
>>19916129It's called a wug2 83a.
>>19916738Coffee in the morning and in the afternoon for both me and my wife. Pour-overs runs around 9-12g, but espresso will be 18g, so if I'm just making espresso it'll be as high as 72g per day, but likely less.
>>19916739niche duo and the mx cool aries are both faster and easier to burr swap than the wug2
>>19916778It's 4 thumb screws and a bolt. Wug2 can run 71mm cones, 80mm flats(2 hole and blind), 83 flats,83 cones(probably including the Aries). Duo doesn't do cones or 80mm, Aries doesn't do any flats or 71mm cone. Why would you want to put worse cones in the Aries anyway?
>>19916815well it took this retard 4 minuteshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9H9mDK0sTQhow fast can you do it?you can burr swap in less than a minute 20 with the niche duo
>>19915685watching this video, maybe Ill finally learn the right grind size for this thing.
Let me guess you "need" more
>>19916847I only drink ethically sourced sustainable small batch coffee sourced from equitably paid sharecroppers.
>>19916847I need less.
>>199168344 minute swap on the 2021 prototype without thumb screws? Not bad.>burr swap in less than a minute 20 with the niche duoAnd you'll still have the same 83mm grinder. You get how being able to run multiple sizes and types of burrs is a very different thing right. Changing the burrs in a mazzer zm still makes it a mazzer zm. Changing a wug from 71mm robur cones to 80mm dittings makes an entirely different grinder. >without buying 2 separate grindersCan you explain a scenario where you'll ever need to swap burrs in a minute? Are you getting stuck in Saw traps often?
>>19916941>And you'll still have the same 83mm grinder.you have missed the point of that anons answeryour wug 2 is not for himits for youi can assure you he doesnt give a fuck about all the different kinds of burrs you can get in a wug 2>decent grinder with easily swappable burrs for pour-overs and espressothats all he wantsthe niche duo and aries both do that, faster, easier, less hassle.>but but but my wug is technically the best optiongreat, you can be the best in the corner alone.
>>19916941>Can you explain a scenario where you'll ever need to swap burrs in a minute?BECAUSE THATS LITERALLY WHAT HES ASKING FOR YOU FUCKING MORON>Seems like a hassle to swap. I meant something you could swap the burrs of daily in like a minute or 2.
frozen roasted beans keep really well right like whats the decay rate on that
>>19916958>the niche duo and aries both do that, faster, easier, less hassle.The aries cone drops out for cleaning, not for swapping. If you wanted to remove, disassemble and reassemble the carriers after dropping out the lower burr you probably can. But its not going to be less hassle. Maybe in the future they'll offer different cones and spare carriers for you to slot in.
>>19916978ok so im still right about the duoand you still are in the corner.thanks for playing kiddo.
>>19916962Hello Im the guy who asked, but now I’m starting to realize my question might be a little retarded and it’s probably better if I just get the K-max or something which works for both espresso and pourover (even though it’s a little more pourover focused).
>>19916774>about 200-250mg of caffeine per day and half of it at middayDoes it affect you sleep at all or have you done this for so long that you have no frame of reference?
>>19916962>in like a minute or 2Hoons in your path. Look if the guy said he was training to take gold in the World burr swapping cup(wBSc) I'd understand. Otherwise saving a minute doesn't really help.https://youtu.be/6vr73UdiyEc>>19916985Nope, you're still a tard. Guy specifically said duo looks like a hassle but you want to shill something you have no experience with.>Seems like a hassle to swap>>19917034Solid choice. An anon who used to post here with an eg-1 really likes it.
>>19916845See >>19902457. The range is broad.
>>19914345>I don't like compromises, I hate pods and capsules, loans, robusta...NESPRESSO CAPSULES COULD BE HERE
>>19917290Months to years. Freezing essentially stops any degassing dead in its tracks so make sure they're sufficiently rested and you're good to go. After that depends on your storage. Vac sealed will keep better than a taped over valve. You don't want any extra moisture working its way into the bag. Frozen green coffee keeps nearly indefinitely.
>>19915685What is this exactly? I kind of want one
>>19917378I'll tell you after I get an answer
>>19917397Its lab equipment
>>19917406Its clearly for making coffee, stop keeping secrets!
I'm so torn between the DF64 and the DF83. >400 vs 640 for the base models>specialty burrs are also more expensive for the 83>youtube reviews/comparisons say that the increase in quality is minimal and not worth the increase in price>BUT I'm worried about buyer's remorse if I go with the cheaper DF64 and get caught up in what ifs [and the 83 has better build quality]Any thoughts
>>19917328>make sure they're sufficiently restedive been making espresso for a year wtf did you mean by this
>>19917068Is it really that much caffeine? ~72g of coffee for 2 people a day. My cutoff for coffee is 5pm, and I sleep fine. I use to drink coffee 3 times a day
>>19916923this but unironically. only coops and smallholder farmsteads, only specialty coffee.
>>19918106I wasn't being ironic>b-but you can buy the g-good coffee off Amazon, i-it's on saleNo. I will buy locally. I will pay the premium for specialty coffee.
>>19917953Dark roasts degas(and spoil) fast. Light roasts degas(and spoil) slow. Oily beans are coated in plant fats. Plant fats oxidize and skunk up, so drink dark roasts "fresh"(er) off roast. Lighter roasts don't have that issue so you can wait for that CO2 to release. CO2 doesn't taste great. You want to freeze beans at their peak. Freeze too early and they won't reach that peak after unfreezing. Freeze too late and you're stuck with stale beans. Their "peak" varies based on the rate of offgas. Its all preference though. I wait 3-4 weeks to drink or freeze my roasts.https://espressoaf.com/guides/storage.htmlhttps://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.jafc.7b03310https://www.wired.com/2009/10/your-tongue-the-carbon-dioxide-sensor/>Figure 4. Degassing profiles of whole coffee beans (Arabica), roasted to three different roast degrees (light, medium, and dark) at fixed roast speed (a) and at three different roast speeds (fast, medium, and slow) to the same roast degree (b).
>>19918259damn great reply, thanks, I appreciate the effort.
>>19918374Anytime, glad to help. Not the first time I've had to type it out lol. I should probably just save these replies and save myself some work next time. Offgassing is a variable you can't really control so you just have to work around it. If your beans are continuously changing from day to day its harder to brew consistently. So you wait for that offgassing to taper off. Waiting lets oxygen do what it does, oxidize things. So you keep your beans in a valved bag. Lets gas out of the bag while keeping fresh oxygen from getting in. The roasting/brewing competition guys will compete with fresh coffee, but they'll grind a day or two before they compete to let that offgassing happen way quicker. Doesn't really work for home brewers because you're trying to extend the usable period of your beans. So people buy airscapes/single dose tubes etc etc. Theres a big difference between a month old bag you've been getting into daily and month old doses that have been sealed the entire time.https://planetarydesign.com/product/airscape-coffee-canister/https://weberworkshops.com/products/bean-cellar-glasshttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M04HGPJ?th=1

>>19918670>look a lot nicerYeah the cheap centrifuge tubes are all function. Most people use those for freezing. I wouldn't put them on a kitchen counter or anything but they're not that bad on my bar. I can get about an lb into a rack of 25.

Is Nicaragua a good coffee region?How does /ctg/ choose a new coffee to try?
>/Grain in all its forms : what audacity!/ >The grain in all states is a real crazy bet for our master roaster. It mixes three coffees with a unique process, from a single farm. It is with the Ferrufino family that we find these rare pearls. The secret of our daring blend? A mixture of three processes making the final taste complex, coming from the same farm to guarantee perfect homogeneity! The Ferrufino family has been growing coffee since 1992 on their “Aurora” farm, committed to supporting a local ecosystem.>/The family farm/>The grain comes exclusively from the Aurora family farm. It is in the heart of the Matagalpa region, between 1,200 and 1,400 meters above sea level, that Enrique Ferrufino manages the coffee culture with his family. Equity is a fundamental value for the family, which is why, since 2004, it has been committed to investing in fair wages, safer living conditions and education.>/Our unique blend/>Our No. 2 blend of Audacious Blends is based on three processes of the Parainema variety, still little known today: Honey, Natural and Washed. By bringing together three processes from the same farm, we obtain a coffee with a fruity and gourmet character, accompanied by pronounced aromas of red fruits. Finca Aurora is known for its extremely complex terroirs protected from high temperatures.First sip today as an ristretto (1:1.6 extraction) no sugarn no milk.Super tasty. The acidity is present and pleasantly balanced, the red fruits aromas are adjacent but really hard to discern what kind of red fruit with a ristretto. Will be brewed tomorrow as a café crème (1:10 extraction) as always. I suspect this "audacious blend" to be as complex and savory as the first one i tried, the "audacious blend n°3, Botanical Varieties" whose beans are also from my bro Enrique Ferrufino.>>19920521>Is Nicaragua a good coffee region?until now i liek>How does /ctg/ choose a new coffee to try?YOLO the roaster's offering whilst staying within the budget.

>>19921221if the coffee has been frozen, it's dogshitthe second you freeze the beans they're ruined>b-but it keeps them good longerNo. They should be shipped in the minimal amount of time, roasted and then consumed immediately. Especially if it's a limited time pop-up shop with hype around it and not a permanent fixture. Get your beans in, roast them, let them off-gas a bit, and then sell them within a week grinding them only as necessary.If they are less fresh at the end of the week, that's on the customers who were too stupid to come in sooner.

If I make mostly lattes with my Breville Bambino and I'm pretty happy with the results is there really a reason to upgrade to something like the Profitec Go? It seems like a lot of diminishing returns and that $1000+ is all about very subtle nuances of straight espresso and if you like your espresso flavored steamed milk as derisive as it is you're not going to notice the difference.
>>19923023>Profitec Go?It seems like a really good espresso machine for the price (sub 1000) but I always hear how good the Breville Dual Boiler (1400) is. I don't know if Bambino => Profitec is enough of an improvement for it to be worth ~900 dollarsTL;DRBambino is really good, and if you're going to be spending over 800 dollars on a new machine I feel like the Profitec and Rancilio Silvia aren't a big enough upgrade to be worthwhile
>>19923068I know the BDB is the go-to but reading all the material and experiences out there it seems like it has design flaws and your machine *will* have parts break that are expensive to get replaced/repaired. And for almost $2k after taxes (Breville raised the MSRP to $1600 this year) the material quality of the BDB is pretty insulting (mostly plastic)
>>19923075Main point still stands, I don't think that Bambino => Profitec is worth paying 900 dollars for. That's just my opinion though, if I were to be upgrading my $500 espresso machine I'd probably go for a truly endgame machine, people who go from beginner machines => intermediate machines almost always end up upgrading to an endgame machine down the line so why not cut out the unnecessary mid-grade?

Not the anon who asked, but this is the only reasonably priced countertop milk steamer I found after a quick search. Dualit Cino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqgKHeQHdsAEvery other standalone milk steamer I came across was too expensive and bulky to justify for domestic use.

ROEST or Bullet?
>>19925155I drink 2 espressos daily. Plain espresso shots. I read somewhere 83mm burrs isn't ideal for my usage. Don't really need the bigger burrs I guess.
The local roaster I was ordering from bumped their 1lb pices up to $26, which is a little too much for me. Quality has gone down the past few years too.Can anyone recommend me a new roaster with decent beans for a good price? Light african's are my favorite. Bonus points if you can recommend a good sumatran since I've never tried it and would like to.
>>19925823Would help to know your use case
>>19925827I drink it? Not sure what you're asking exactly.I buy whole bean, have a decent electric burr grinder, and brew either pour over or aeropress.
>>19925846Quick follow up. I'm looking for good single origin light roasts, but ones that are "good enough" for someone who loves coffee, if that makes sense. Think daily drinker. I was wrong when I said $26, it's actually $32 at my old place. That's a lot of cash a month for coffee.
>>19916963frozen food doesn't 'decay' at all. it only does on auto defrost freezers because it's essentially unfreezing it for a short period and then refreezing.
Can anyone recommend me single serve 18g storage containers for beans to store in my counter. Not looking to spend a ton of money.

>>19924813If them beans good then its goffee time >:^)
>>19923858I totally understand that people want a nice foamy milk for their cappuccino. But for real, at that point just buy an all in one barista machine and be done with it.

anyone have any opinions on Hario grinders?they seem much cheaper than espresso grinders but i assume thats because of pourover just being less expensive in general rather than inferior build qualityfor reference i am the guy been asking about grinders, i mostly want it for pourovers but i am going to get a moka pot soon so i want to be able to grind for that too
>>19926756Dogshit. They use ceramic peppermill burrs from kyocera. Avoid at all cost. When you ask about porlex next I'm going to ignore you.
I think I'm going to go with a DF64 [v2]. Tell me why I should get something else.>$400>flat burrs>good for both filter and espresso>option to upgrade burrs down the line>single dose, low/zero retention
>>19926756Just get a kingrinder
>>19926853im probably gonna
>>19926823Save your money
>>19926894For what, the DF64 v2 seems to be an amazing price:performance machine
>>19926823>single doseyou lonely bro? no family?
>>19926193nojust have them separatelyyou will enjoy them more on their owndrink coffee :)drink gin :)drink coffee with gin in it :(
>>19926451>58s are $464 and up.
>>1992596050 ml centrifuge tubes are the cheapest way to go. ~$15 for 25 doses. I do 16.5g in the ones I linked earlier>>19918521but I've got some headspace so depending on the bean you should be fine at 18g. I think the flat bottoms ones without a rack cost a little more. Might look a little better on your counter.>>19925850Get the wuri grade 0 while he still has some.https://www.swroasting.coffee/shop/single-origin-coffees-lighter-roasts-/2
>>19926634It's going to be goffee time for some time then and i won't be the one complaining.
>>19926784>ceramic peppermill burrs from kyoceraand what exactly is bad about thatim Genuine curios
>>19926904two rocks you can find outside are the king of price to performance depending on which ones you pick it'll have even better geometry than most burrsalso they last a lifetime, you'll never have to buy another grinder again
>>19927431I was going to write out a long comment with a couple pictures of different burrs to show you, but I think its funnier to let you buy one and find out yourself.https://espressoaf.com/guides/burr_catalog.html
>>19927091Appreciate ya, I bought them. Sterile lab grade plastic, matching tray, air tight seal.
>>19926756just a step too bad to even be a good choice for entry level.
>>19927431aside from the unevenness and excessive amount of fines, they just can't cut for shit, you'll be grinding 4 maybe 5 times longer for the same amount of coffee as a better handgrinder
Moka-frà did you end up visiting the caffè?
>>19927766So after all that bitching and moaning in the first one he likes it?
>>19927940the pro specifically or Hario grinders in general?
>>19928013you mean after he spent months with it and lovingly repaired it?yes
>>19916847I unironically used to drink this with room temp water and no sugar when I was working and I was too lazy to make anything better.
>>19917938Add the 64V to your considerations - its build quality is closer to the 83 but you're still using cheaper burrs if you want to fuck with different ones, you've got RPM available should you want to experiment with that, and it's got a smaller footprint.
>>19928163>spent months with it>a straight forward job that ought to have taken hoursTurns out its a chore to source parts for a 10 year old piece of industrial equipment you bought third-hand at auction. Who knew?
>>19928208it wasn't hard, he said mahlkonig were very difficult to work withif they weren't cunts it would be simpleand yes he literally has spent months with it, i didnt say he spent months fixing italso when you fix something and really make it shine you will have more positive feelings to it.at the start he just got it, hadn't really worked on it yet, hadn't really used it yet and didnt like it.shocker.
>>19928237Hemro is great about offering repairs through their distributors. They're not great at giving people, who may or may not know what they fuck they're doing, parts and encouraging them to open up a 1300w/12a machine. Pretty standard behavior when you're dealing with industrial/commercial vs consumer. Its not an Encore. TWG just didn't want to pay for service and wanted to make some content.
>>19928294>to make some content.thats not truenone of that hassle is in the video he just says it was a hassle and then moves on.i hardly call that "content" and he did it while he was on break.> They're not great at giving people, who may or may not know what they fuck they're doing, parts and encouraging them to open up a 1300w/12a machine.why the fuck do they care other than "forcing" you to pay them to repair the machine?its an old second hand machine anyway, its far past warranty and what some random user does with it should be of no concern to them.twg does like to save money where he can, that is a running theme of the channel but i dont think that played any part in this process.
>>19928366The running theme is he's a coffeepsued. Journo; culinary polymath; international coffee personality.>Part 1: Is MK too scared of my potentially SCATHING review to answer my emails?No dipshit. You're not their customer. You're a youtuber they've never heard of who bought some shit at auction. Talk to a distributor.>Part 2: These mk servicers/distributors are great! I love the machine, I was able to source everything I needed and the insulation I cried about wasn't a big deal.

DF64 v2 is on sale for $330. I think I'm gonna go for it
>>19925665That's not even coffee, it's probably green chai latte
>>19927431The steel burr ones are faster and easier on the hands. I've used both types extensively and they both make good coffee, but I prefer my steel one for the ease of use. Just buy whatever the cheapest one you can find that you like the look of; they're all chinese and rip eachother off. Don't buy a kingrinder to spite that stupid shill that always posts here. If you're spending over $100usd on a hand grinder for coffee you should probably seriously consider euthanasia.
I think my sis wants to get me an aeropress for Christmas and I'm not sure how to stop her
>>19928931If you're buying a grinder based solely off looks you're probably retarded.

>>19929977If you're willing to go through espresso prep on a camping trip, sure go for it.
so which community is worsecoffee or hifi?
>>19930567I'm biased but I'd say hifi is worse. With coffee people acknowledge that a lot of shit is up to preference, and technique plays a part too. Hifi is just pure gearfagging, whereas with coffee that's just a component.
>>19930567whats the difference?but its hifi and its not even close
>>19930596for me the difference is i dont see a parallel for cableschizo shit for coffee.or putting crystals on capacitorsyou can argue powerautism is comparable to coffee water autism
>>19930567Coffee actually does get significantly better depending on your equipment, not the case with audio.
>>19930925>coping this hardI'm sure the audiophile fags think the same lmaoIt's always diminishing returns like in anything else
>>19929977I have one that I sometimes take when I travel for work. Bottom line up front, it works - if you've got a decent hand grinder and you can manage water temperature, you can absolutely make espresso with it and it's not bad. It's going to take a lot longer between shots than a home machine, and getting all the components and the internals dry can be a little bit of fucking around, if you're going to be packing it and forgetting about it. I probably travel with an Aeropress about twice as often as I'll travel with the Pico because if I have an early start it's less fuck around to get decent coffee into me fast, but there's something mildly hilarious about turning out decentish espresso around a campfire or in a hotel room

sup coffee nerds. anything wrong with steeping coffee in hot water before pouring it through a pour over thing with a filter? how long should I steep?
>>19932306i dont know know why youd wanna do thatyou probably shouldnt
>>19932312why not. its essentially what happens with a french press.
>>19916427Nicaragua never failed me, same with Costa Rica.I usually avoid Mexican beans, it tastes like fucking coal.
>>19929374I really don't get the point in specialty coffee on amazon, there's a reason grocery stores don't carry any if they don't have a deal with the local roaster, they're gonna go stale asf. maybe if the specialty roaster is just using amazon as some kinda storefront and they still manage to send on the day of the roast, but it's my impression that this isn't what's going on
>>19932306Nothing wrong with that. That's basically the 'steep and release' method. I do that sometimes with my french press through filter paper held in a tea strainer because I don't have a gooseneck kettle and don't want to get one at the moment. Try dividing your water into three or four parts, steeping and releasing multiple times to mimic multiple pours in a traditional pour-over method.
>>19930567I am a part of both and I want to say coffee people are a lot more realistic with what's actually effective and what's just excess consoom. yes, a mechanical wdt isn't gonna make better coffee, but even the most reddit user knows it won't, they just like it. hifi people fully believe in shit like burn in and other intangibles that don't bear out in any data and will pay hand over fist to resolve imagined issues.I also will say, coffee genuinely is a longer path, you can get 99% of the way there in hifi with a good medium grade setup, but you can keep getting better and better and discover new experiences for much longer with coffee so it's a more interesting hobby>>19930607coffee water actually makes a difference and it bears out in blind testing. whether it affects extraction is less clear. I guess the most analogous components of cabletism is >farming and competitiona lot of presentation is just new age bullshit, your bean isn't gonna be better if you put positive energies out into the air, your coaster isn't representing the ethiopean culture, fuck off. but even that I don't think they buy into, it's just showmanship. >silly wdt tools.probably some people actually buy into that>dead shots in espresspeople that fuss over this are very embarassingI think coffee is lucky in the fact that most of the big voices are engineers or scientists(or work closely with them) and are obsessed with relatively solid but too small scale experiments. it's very reddit but it also regulates out all the myths over time. that's just online culture though, elderly normies get everything wrong
>>19932326not really but i guess it is a technique you can use
>>19932356>coffee water actually makes a differencethats what i said you fucking brain dead illiterate retard
>local roastery has new beansfuck yea i have nothing to live for
>Cup of black Folger's instant coffee is better than what I made in a Moka potGot my percolator in the mail today and I assume that will be better as well
>>19932442if you think that's good, wait until you use a method that isn't shit, it'll blow your mind. why the fuck would you go in order of moka pot, instant, percolator? are you 90 years old? espresso, french press, aeropress, pour over. or learn to actually use your moka pot, you're probably cooking the shit out of it just like you will with a percolator, ruining your coffee
>>19932476Quite sure I used the moka pot correctly. I took my time learning it and used it numerous times. Bought a percolator because we have one at work and the coffee it makes tastes good.
>>19932491if percolator and instant are your favorites maybe you just have highly unorthodox tastes. have you ever suffered from a stroke or had cancer in your mouth or something?
>>19932533No. This shit reminds me of craft beer where people jerk each other off over IPAs which taste disgusting.
>>19932543it's not at all comparable. percolators are a borderline dead tech for a reason, you're being the hipster using something that went out of style 50-70 years ago because it uses un-sound principles to brew coffee. percolators boil the water after extraction, this burns the water, this produces a pretty much universally considered negative taste. instant coffee (aside from select specialty options) extracts about twice as much as other methods of brewing, this makes it woodier, more astringent and fibrous, it's horrifically overextracted and just tastes of less to save costs(most of what is extracted has no taste and is just filler, like cardboard), almost everyone including the people that use it consider it inferior. if you like boiled coffee and woody earthy coffee, that's fine, but don't act like the 99.9% of people that feel otherwise are the IPA micro brewery hipsters, you're the weird "look at me I'm so special" person in this scenario. why not just get a normal drip coffee machine? it'll be a thousand times better than a percolator
>buy 2lbs version of this>grind a cup at a time>beat to shit grinder that I grind cooked rice and spices in>put grounds in freezer>heat up water to just below boiling>eyeball it>add 3-4 tbsp of grounds to french press>faithful stainless steel french press of several years>add water>sit for 3-4 minutes>do this twice a dayBest damn coffee I've ever had in my life.
>>19930567until someone comes up with a $5000 "espresso machine gold power cable" that magically makes the coffee better, hifi by a million miles.
>>19932551In my experience something like a percolator is normal and most people have never heard of any of the stuff you're referring to or even considered it, so I do think it's comparable.
>>19932570that's why I'm asking if you're really old. old people probably are around percolators fairly often, but they're by far phased out by drip machines. you're essentially using the penny farthing of coffee machines. percolators are not normal, I don't know what to tell you. I've recommended french press and drip coffee batch brewers, they have orders of magnitude bigger market share
>>19932576I'm in my mid-30s. I've never known anyone in real life who used a french press and when I got a moka pot I talked to some people about it and they didn't know what it was. The only coffee drinkers I know are just coffee drinkers and not "coffee as a hobby" coffee drinkers.
>>19932579why are you ignoring when I'm saying drip coffee? or espresso? combined they account for at least 90% of all coffee, percolators isn't even 1%.
>>19932588The only things I've ever used are a percolator (at work), instant, and a moka pot. I don't really know anything about drip coffee and using a machine like that is unappealing to me.
>>19932600what do you mean "machine like that". so because it's standalone? genuinely where do you live where you've tried percolator but never even encountered drip coffee. I feel like you're fucking with me
>>19922598i tried a jura once in an office and it was good
>>19932603I'm sure I've seen machines here and there but I've never used one. I only got into coffee a bit more recently. In the past I might have had instant at home occasionally or gone to a Starbucks or something.>what do you mean "machine like that"They look like a microwave but for coffee and I just find it unappealing on a personal level.
