How do you like your coffee, senpai?
Moving from drip machine to french press was a nice change.
Grinding your own coffee immediately before brewing is a meme, don't fall for the whole bean meme.
I have a 5 year old sleek-ass Moccamaster that's easily one of the best drip makers available. These things heat the water to just right temperature for the best brew.
I grind my beans with a Wilfa grinder that has buttload of different settings. I've concluded that fine filter grind, just a notch coarser than Aeropress grind, is the best.
The best beans around here come from a small shop where they have been roasted a couple of days before I purchase them. A 2.2 pound bag is around 33USD. Totally worth every dollar.
To make it a little bit more tech, let's see which programming languages are you working with, and how you brew your coffee.
Hoping my team agreeds to try ClojureScript for our next project.
unless you also have an automatic coffee ground/water dispenser and a self-cleaning carafe, you still have to manually keep the machine stocked with water and coffee beans before you issue the "make coffee" command, so what's the point?
>drinking coffee instead of tea
no matter how much types of making coffee I see, there is no difference how you brew coffee and little to no difference in mid to high priced beans.
Coffee makers are Apple of kitchen.
Im making a coffee machine with an atmega8
Wish me luck brothers
Latte with 2 shots of espresso. I use a relatively cheap Saeco Poemia for the job.
I'm on keto right now so I've had to lay down the steamed milk unfortunately, so it's just 2 shots watered down by the machine.
I used to think French press was hipster shit but then I got one for Christmas. Its pretty damn nifty and takes about as long as a normal drip contraption but the coffee tastes a lot better.
the difference in bean varieties and localities can be tasted in light to medium roasts.
Anything labeled "dark roast", "columbian", "french roast", etc. is basically burned to the point where all the natural flavorings are burned out in favor of a very familiar roasted coffee flavor that makes it all taste the same.
It's very much like cooking a steak well done, you might as well use cheap and shitty beans if you're gonna burn out all the flavor.
>there is no difference how you brew coffee
There is a big difference and it can change how it tastes depending on how it is prepared.
>no difference in mid to high priced beans.
Again, depends, mostly depends on freshness and type of roast. Dark is usually bitter, opposite end isn't so bitter.
>not roasting your own coffee
>not being french press master race
>not drinking your coffee black

at home I just take a spoon of coffee powder right into the cup and pour hot water over it
at work I prefer drip coffee, the coffee from the big expresso machine just doesn't taste that good
It's okay I don't think they are in Japan anyway
>Little bit of cream and sugar.
Pussy, the only way to drink coffee is black.
>drinking coffee instead of tea
Go home, britfag
Another pussy messing up what should be left alone
WRONG. holy fuck you people are dumb
You can you tell people your a man with a straight when you all drink shit-tier coffee?
There is only one correct way to drink coffee, and thats black.
taking my coffee without cream or sugar for a week and i want to tell everybody
>There is only one correct way to drink coffee, and thats black.
Haha! You are like my wife's son.
He's in college now, he's studying there for free as well because my cousin is a boardmember, etc. Only thing I paid for were his MacBook Pro!
God, I miss him!
I've slowly moved from dumping in tons of sugar and creamer to just a little sugar to black over the past couple years. I wasn't even trying to, it just sorta happened. Now sweet coffees make me wretch
Obviously, the coffee makes the biggest difference. It means capsule coffee is a no-go. This son of a bitch never lets me down. No matter how dark the roast is, it's never bitter.
Then, the brewing method.
French press is weak. Probably it cools down too quickly. No foam either so the aroma vanishes.
Coffee machines, on the opposite, use too hot water, even overheated if I'm not mistaken. Never boil you coffee. This is where the most of the bitterness comes from. And they can be pricey.
Geyser coffee makers have the same problem.
Thus, I've settled down on cezve. I fill it with water about 2 cm lower than the brim, then boil the water. Keep it boiling for a minute or two, this softens the water. Then I add the sugar. Three tea spoons. Then I turn off the heat and add 3-4 teaspoons of ground coffee, thoroughly mix it all with a spoon. Then I turn slow heat, to rise the foam. When it starts rising I turn off the heat for good. When grounds settle I preheat my cup then slowly pour the coffee in it. There might be some grounds in the foam, a good idea to settle them down again. It's ready now. While not as fast as coffee machine it's faster than even making tea ofa tea bag,
>having to wean yourself off cream and sugar
can you not just appreciate good black coffee without adding shit to it?
americano from a nice coffee shop I go past on the way to work, or if I'm at home I use a moka pot
