Wait there is an end of the rabbit hole, so there is hope?

Hah! I have found it is possible to actually climb back up. No espresso anymore, just a couple hand grinders and my old trusty aeropress. Kinda liberating after 10 different machines to simplify life and still enjoy great coffee in a few minutes.
No adult supervision.

Rabbit hole? That's journey has been more like the tunnels in Vietnam! And that's just grinders. Anyone ever see the movie Hearts of Darkness? :mrgreen:

I was in the Cu Chi tunnels in '96 and I much prefer the coffee rabbit hole!

Seriously though, Vietnam is a great country to visit and the War Remnants Museum is a must to learn about the American War from a different perspective.

Back on topic, I didn't drink coffee back then but I hear Vietnamese coffee is an experience as well.

When you're traveling in South America with your portable espresso maker and reach out to a local roaster through social media to ask which bottled water sold in the city might have just the right level of hardness and alkalinity to brew yourself a good cup.

Oh! And, when you keep looking up the boiling point of water at different altitudes to decide what coffee you'll brew or what adjustments you'll do to your recipe.

I've spent more on coffee gear in four years than the total of my first six cars.

Now this makes me laugh and so true of a lot of people with all things.
