Yes, the promise of truly astral coffee is always just out of reach. :grinning:


#545

That looks like Gold Blend in there :grinning:


#546

It gave more bubbling. Made the film more interesting to watch. :+1:

Look carefully, it’s actually Gold Blend cut with Space Dust.

Just discovered a small rust spot forming on my 1 cup cafetière so I need to acquire a replacement. The current model is a cheap shitty one that’s annoying to use; any recommendations for non-shitty ones?


#549

Do you grind Jon? :grinning:


#550

Not at present…


#551

Get an Aeropress. It’s better coffee than cafetiere and doesn’t have bits in.


#552

^^This, but you should get a burr grinder to get the best out of it.

#554

Should I keep my coffee beans in the fridge?

Air tight container in the freezer he says… I am getting through quite a bit at the moment and it doesn’t have time to get stale!


#557

Mine lasts about 2 weeks before having the audacity to run out. I might bung it in the fridge; I already keep it in airtight Tupperware.


#558

Forget the fridge
Freezer if long term and sealed.

Fridge is not worth it and liable to get damp and react to fluctuations as you remove it repeatedly.

As above, airtight in something intert. Grinding to order matters as surface area and going stale are inextricably linked!

agree

we roast once a week, overlapping by 1 or 2 days for degassing. We keep the roasted beans in the grinder. Over a week they show no sign of staleness
