    is a great start to any day.


    as far as beans, i have likes and dislikes, but i find just about any local craft roaster seems to do good enough to please me. my favorite guys are evans brothers up in Sandpoint Idaho. buy whole bean and grind it to match your brewing style, but if you like black coffee, straight up and strong, a SLLLLOOWWW pour on a nice cermaic pour over is important.


    if your really into coffee and its flavors, i suggest getting a clay cup with an unfinished inside. there is a guy that makes them in port townsend (http://laughingnome.com/). the rough surface causes nucleation and has a pronounced effect on the flavor. Also great for those of you who drink espresso over drip.

    I have been thinking about the Hario Skerton. Seems to get good reviews from coffee sites.

    I know a conical burr grinder would be great...However $100 plus for something the size of a Cisinart food processor...ha!...Ellens kitchen is small...we keep it simple but do love our rich coffee...we are after all coffee whores...I had my first espresso while in college in Bellingham WA...Tony's Coffee...1973...and haven't looked back...

    Just super awkward to grind with the horizontal crank. Compared to the Handground brand one, where the crank is vertical, it just takes forever and is more work than I want to put in to a cup of coffee (and I am fine with going the extra mile for good coffee). 99.9% of the time, I use my electric one, but when camping or traveling, the Handground goes with me. I took my Hario to work and can barely be bothered to go through the work to use it.

    It's also extremely difficult to adjust the size of your grind. That's a huge reason why I don't use it.

    I'm not very good at hiding the fact that I'm a huge fucking nerd about certain things. Coffee is thankfully one of the more socially acceptable things I nerd out on. If we did a thread on boardgames, that's where I'd go full on nerd.

    Sumerian has a solid collection of board games. Stop by next time you're in town.
