This so annoys me. Even many so-called flat whites are almost all milk - if a place does a cortado, you can guarantee this. It makes having a coffee in a new place bizarrely stressful.

I think the British public would shit themselves if they were handed a milk-based drink in the proper ratio from a coffee chain.

It would probably be out of business in 3 months.

I love it when places give you a flat white in a cup that takes about 400ml


#586

Some beans arrived today


#587

Cooool…


#588

Dry roasted peanuts?


#589

Anyone tried deep frying the beans yet. Seems like an opportunity.

I’m still pretty much in thrall to the Kalita Wave. Recently I discovered this recipe:http://www.georgehowellcoffee.com/brew-guide/kalita-185/ whilst looking for one that used around 25 grms. It seems to brew a more complex cup with the majority of coffees and really accentuates the brightness/acidity without losing any sweetness. It really suits a Columbian, washed of Department’s that I have got into recently.
Yesterday at work we deliberated over how it could be extrapolated to larger amounts, tried a brew of forty grams with ratios of water/time etcetera the same and it worked! I will try a fifty grm version over the weekend, which is a good serving for three.
The pulse pouring seems to result in less saturation/immersion early in the brew compared to a continuous pour.
The next controllable is water; word is the Waitrose essentials mineral water is very good for filter coffee and could be better than the Brita filtered that I am using presently. I shall report back with my findings. :grinning:

No idea what it means or what the implications are for taste but I’m loving the thoroughness & obsession.


#592

I’ll bring the gear to Lopwell with a range of coffees for a play. :+1:


#593

That’s what I was hoping for,


#594

I was thinking of having a watch


#595

Like HiFi, it’s mainly about the poncing about rather than the end result. :rofl:


#596

Remind me to bring the vac pot and technivorm to the northern bash.


#597

Prefer their DJ sets to live shows, tbh.


#598

Lots of similarities, the best equipment is Japanese too! :grin:


#599

Just made a batch of cold brew ready for the morning

Aeropress coffee, ice cream, milk. Blend, add ice. Win.
