Im super weird about cool nick knacks like this, $12 is nothin'.

From the website, seems like it helps flavor??

2. What's the difference between the S Filter and paper? Paper filters trap flavor oils and coffee particles. We created the S Filter to capture the advantages of paper (trapping fine coffee particles) while preserving the full flavor of a French press coffee (by allowing flavorful coffee oils into your cup).

well the part about paper filtering out some of the oils is true.

if that sucker completely prevents grittiness while letting the oils pass through, I guess its purdy cool

Actually the gold filter died a few days ago, I'm back to my Ikea stovetop espresso maker with a modified pressure valve. I bought a new valve grom McMaster-Carr, its 2 bar and quieter.

Thoughts on hypercholesterolemic factor with no paper filter?

Looks pretty good. Can't tell color well without a nice white bg but i'd guess City or City+?

We use the Baratza old model of that grinder at work. Is great. I've rebuilt it once after the original (warrantied) gears stripped. I suggest cleaning out the base every few months to remove the shitloads of grounds that get in there.

I've never been a metal filter fan, but one of the KEY things you need is a consistent grind size. I'd err on the larger end of the range for drip coffee when using a metal mesh filter. But then I hate french press sludge.

Alright snobs,

I think I may have come up with an idea...

But with a twist, and get it hydro dipped with zebra print. Creative, unique, and that woman I'm trying to gift too loves zebra print.

Opinions?

Probably. Doesn't dress or act like one but she enjoys the hipster scene in Austin, drinks craft beers, listens to local indie bands. Closet hipster?

hipster is dead. indie bands are pervasive as is craft beer. there's nothing wrong with appreciating manly comfort and beards even if you're not a hipster.

Thanks for the advice on the Baratza, I noticed it likes to hold on to the grounds and it is sorta a pain to clean.

You DO have to adjust the grind on the Baratza a little more coarse than you would otherwise to get the grounds to not permeate the filter, but by a little more coarse I'm talking moving from a 9 to an 11 on coarseness, not a huge bump.

I need to thank you guys for keeping this thread going. Being sick at home for most of the week I finally figured out why when I make coffee it comes out amazing and when my wife makes it quality is completely terrible. Same beans, same filters, same water, same machine. It turns out its all about the grind. She vaporizes the beans in the grinder for 10-12 seconds where I pulse it for maybe 4-5 seconds in total. It makes a HUGE difference.

Seems like it brews a little cool. I wouldn't use hot tap water for what it's worth though.

I'd do a little quick googling and see what cheap machines can maintain proper brew temp. 190+/-5 F is target.

Also, most thermometers I've seen that come with any equipment can easily be more that 10* off temp. I've noticed a big difference in my aeropress espressos when I pour it after getting an accurate temp reading.

I use these pen thermometers in my bakery and they find true temp in 2-3 seconds(depends on the temperature constant throughout the thing you are testing) and are waterproof. Obviouslky, you can get much much cheaper ones, but as long as it is a reputable brand name, you can be assured it is calibrated well.

(if baller use a $700 thermocouple to test you temps as well! God damn love my thermocouple)((used to get oven and water temps))

As a homebrewer I'm all about dem temperatures. Gotta keep the enzymes happy after all.

The Thermapen is far and away one of the best digital thermometers available to the everyman and I'm glad to see them finally selling on Amazon. I think I have 4-5 different ThermoWorks products in my kitchen and they are all bauce.
