Green Coffee Exchange

The Captain's Coffee had some Finca Lerida Gesha. Did I make a mistake picking up 5 lbs? It was a bit pricey.

New Eureka Mignon Single Dose Grinder

In that IG on the Zero, someone asked if the existing Mignons can be modified to single dose with the new accessories. Their response was coy. It could be just marketing speak, or maybe there really are some functional differences that they don't want to spell out in detail. {image}

Is frequently moving a grinder hard on it?

I have reached maximum counter space capacity for coffee gears, says the wife. But I really want to get a second grinder to accompany my Niche Zero. Have been eyeing the new Vario+ models, which would give me a big improvement in my drip brew coffee as well as the optional for unimodal espresso. If I get it, I'd need...

White double wall ceramic mug recommendations?

I'm familiar with the ones made by Fellow, I'm not a huge fan of the copper/gold accents. Are there any other options? I want something that's white (not glass) with good heat retention (double wall). Ideally it would be available in both a 6-8oz size and a 3oz size. Thanks!

SB E61+PID, Episode 2: Tested properly this time, with much better results
