Old Coffee

Hello all I look to this forum for recommendations and got my first dud. I placed and order with Aero Coffee Roasters based on a post here. Today I got a bag of coffee roasted 3 days shy of a month ago. Just wanted to give a heads up to the group.

Allure of Espresso vs. Drip

I've done a lot of both. Guess I prefer the richness and mouthfeel of espresso more. I only use my pinky when I drink tea and do impressions of John Cleese.

Yes, a Monolith is worth it

Having a conical with a large flat is an i teresting pairing (if you can afford it) so that you broaden the taste profiles one can extract at home. Having the possibility to swap burrs with one grinder is also another option - less costly that also increase the range of taste possible.

Tiny motors on new grinders?

Eureka 75mm burrs

Allure of Espresso vs. Drip

I like both and chase perfection in both beverages. I only recently got into espresso though. To me, they are both great ways to enjoy coffee, just different. I like the intensity and body of espresso, and also enjoy the clarity and aroma of pour-overs. Both have nice flavors that are enjoyable to bring out. I'm not into milk drinks...

Eureka 75mm burrs

Um, same coffee? As coffee ages, the beans soften, and there are less fines, You'll need to tighten the grind to get the same flow at the same dose. You will also notice the taste go flat. Generally it's far better to up dose than to tighten the grind as coffee ages.
