Mostly because I don't have to grow a beard and wear tight jeans...

In all seriousness though, I like that it can do hot water too. So if I take it camping, I can make myself some ramen, or the kids some hot chocolate.

Haha fair enough - good point about the instant hot water.

I'm still finding it tasting a bit diluted... I need to pin down a couple variables (beans and dose) so I can mess around with grind size and time.

My JJ Beans were roasted in early-Dec, but now I'm onto a bag of Rosso two wheel espresso beans roasted in mid-Dec. Water I'm using just off the boil. Grind size I'm using a Hario mini and trying to work off of descriptions like "size of sea salt" that I see in some Aeropress guides. Not sure if I'm getting a lot of fines, but I get quite a bit of resistance plunging already - so hesitating to go finer (but I probably will).

Thanks for the link - I was looking at the WAC website and they only listed one recipe. First thing I noticed from that site:
code:
Filipís recipe: Inverted method Dry coffee: 35 grams


If I'm using that much beans for a cup, I may as well give up and go to Analog for my afternoon coffee.


Kalita Wave next? would take some talent to break one of those


The AP brews a clean cup. When you say diluted, are you referring to mouthfeel? If so, try the Disk filter by Able brewing. I'm thinking you want a richer cup.

You're fine at 20 grams. I would not increase it as it will likely lead to under-extraction. Sea salt sized particles is too course. Definitely go finer. It is important to have consistent particle sizes for full immersion brewing. I quickly ditched my Hario for a Porlex. I should've went with a Lido but I put the funds towards an electric grinder.

The next time you buy beans, ask the shop for their AP brewing parameters. I'm sure most shops will be more than helpful. I would avoid espresso beans, especially blends, with the AP. You'll get a more flavourful cup with a lighter roast.

The stainless steel Kalita Wave is really nice! It's more forgiving than the V60 but just too expensive. I'll give it a try the next time I break my new V60 haha.

Well, it's official, I can't really tell the difference between the different beans. I have been happy with whatever catches my eye at co-op, including the house brand "cooperative coffee".

Fresh grind does make a big difference to me though. Still grinding away one cup at a time.

Finally got to a point where I'm reasonably happy with the AP, but after a week of drinking hipster coffee in Vancouver (mostly Chemex), I'll definitely start playing around with some lighter roasted single origin beans. Another realization was that I do prefer more body... the Chemex delivers what I guess people refer to as a more "tea-like" cup, which I found lacking. Will look into a metal disk for my AP.

Busted out the scale, and I'm using around 10 grams for my pour-over. I should try doubling that and see how I like the flavour.

Ran a double-dose for my pour-over cup this morning. Pretty small difference in flavour, but found it dried my mouth out while drinking it. I'm no chemist, but that probably means there's more of something in there. Would be fascinating to know what the caffeine was for each.

Didn't think anything good happened, so I'll go back to my "regular" amount of grinding.

I stopped drinking as much "coffee" as possible and went to double espressos only. Bought a Breville 870XL machine and use the Kicking Horse Espresso beans. So easy and inexpensive to make.

anyone have some good recommendations on espresso only beans?

Anyone ever order beans from Rave Coffee in Canmore?
I came across them on social media, prices are better than local (~$20/lb for single origin beans, vs $20/340g here) and I'm very intrigued by their Ethiopia Yirgacheffe (had one in Vancouver with intense blueberry notes).

$75 for free shipping though - any takers for a group buy?

Ended up putting in an order from here anyways. Got 5 (small) bags of single origin beans and a large bag of Espresso blend. They're all great coffees, but the Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural has so much character it's simply amazing... blueberry and dark chocolate all the way through

These kinds of things are why I'll never understand people putting cream/sugar in their coffee, or wanting the darkest/boldest burnt roast possible. That sounds awesome.

Frettelo's dark cherry has a very bold cherry flavour and it's awesome to shake up the flavour routine. It's pretty overwhelming, so while I enjoy it, I don't think I would want to drink it all the time.

Lately I have been buying Lina's Medium Roast Colombian Supremo and also tried their medium roast Espresso Blend (From Lina's Italian Market on Center Street North). Both are low acid, smooth and rich with an above average Crema (thick, full and doesnt dissolve quickly) on espresso's.

They are both at least as high quality as Phil and Sebastian (and cost less), just wish they would add the roast date to their packaging.

If I had to guess, I would say they likely source from Fratello but it doesn't say anywhere on the packaging and the staff was unsure when I asked. If anyone on here knows where they source from I would be interested to know!

My favorite beans are still High altitude grown Panamanian Caturra variety, but they are pricey beans and aren't available to purchase for all that long.
