Quote from: zeebo on May 08, 2017, 01:53:04 PMHere's a question for the coffee pros. About half the time w/ my home brews I get a sour note. I don't mind bitter, but sour is bad. No likey. The only cure is masking it with too much cream. Any ideas on what causes this, or maybe a reco on different coffees to try?

Fuck smashed burgers, over-roasted coffee, and plastic cars and the molded plastic paradise fueled by psychotic rap sugar rage. All third world shit sold as trendy by minions of the elitist. 'Whether on a road trip or at the steel mills and construction sites - here was the thermos that carried coffee during the peak of civilization.

Quote from: WOTR on May 30, 2017, 03:34:18 AMHmmm. I decided to give it a go tonight. I have somewhat mixed feelings. First, I think that the roast that I am using for my espresso is probably a little light- I'm getting more citrus than sweet (I generally go for a light roast.)the double shot was added to roughly 8 ounces of cold water and then a few ice cubes added. Perhaps it is because I really am used to espresso, I found it to be a little weak (or, again, perhaps it is the lighter roast.)I have some older dark roast that is now probably going on two months old that was destined for vac pot coffee. As it is "just" getting added to cold water, I may give that a whirl.How many ounces is the finished product, generally?What roast is generally used?Is the espresso added to iced water, or just cold water with ice added later?***I'm not saying it was bad- just not quite what I had in mind for a refreshing but flavourful drink...
Quote from: malachi.martini 🍸 on May 30, 2017, 08:33:57 AMI usually eyeball the proportions, but it's usually 2oz water, 2oz espresso, 4oz ice cubes... I brew it over ice, so a good bit of it melts. Any more water per pull is weaker than I'd like, might be why you were meh about it? The roast is city+/fullcity, chocolate and caramel heavy. I avoid the lighter and super dark roasts, don't like burnt or bright at all.Got a bag of Stumptown Hairbender espresso over the weekend, and it tasted like chemical sewage. Undrinkable. Go online, find out they were bought out by Peets. What a shame, it was a consistently great coffee.
Quote from: WOTR on June 02, 2017, 02:22:10 AMI must confess that using those rations was a huge improvement. When I googled it, the first directions I came across were for "16 ounces" of water being the standard (though the presenter used 8 for himself.) 2 is far better. I generally like my espresso to be "bright" with a citrus acidity- so light to medium roast is my preference. However, I'm still going to use some of those older dark and oily beans in my cupboard to try this again later in the month. I have to say that this blend ended up with a pleasing apricot nose and a smooth profile. Not a bad summer sipper, at all.

Quote from: akwilly on May 06, 2017, 02:11:56 PMI used to drink tons of coffee, nothing fancy just Folgers. I heard about a baseball player that went on the DL because of vision problems that were traced to his caffeine intake. I too was having similar issues so I switched to one cup a day with half decaf. I can say it worked for me and hope to go decaf only in the near future
Quote from: (Sandman) Logan-5 on May 11, 2017, 04:26:32 AMSounds like you need to clean the coffee maker. Some of the newer ones are very difficult to clean, especially the one cup (K-Cup) makers...
