Thanks. cheers

I also have one of these original bean grinders.

I cleaned it, updated the toggle switch to blue rubber coated one...

....and powder coated the grinder to blue from the original white, and re-did the black with powder coat too.
Wuv this thing. hearts
One of a kind now.

You can set it to grind from fine to coarse.
Works great and you can keep an entire pound of coffee in the hopper. cool2

I like fresh Coffee grinds straight from Columbia. Much stronger then the store bought stuff.

I also like auto drip because the heating coil destroys any possible though unlikely bacteria for superb Coffee pleasure.

No Robusta beans and drip with water cooler than 195F to minimize oils. Drink within 20 minutes.

your water is too hot. Check out the oil sheen on the top of your cup of coffee. Oil comes at 198-199F if I remember.

I've been drinking coffee since I was 2 years old and now nearing 60 I feel I am more than qualified to discuss the subject.
Vac Drip coffee makers, that resemble a piece of Chemical equipment (Kipp Generator) make the best tasting coffee but are a mess to clean up afterward.

Overall, in my experience, the best coffee makers are the old fashioned Aluminum Drip Coffee makers that you pour hot water through the top section that gradually drips through the coffee basket into a bottom serving container. This requires some other item like a typical kettle to heat the water. NOTE: You should never be tempted to re-heat leftover coffee by using the bottom section on the stove, this will alter the taste and performance over time. The Aluminum manual drip is not as hard to keep clean and come in various sizes from one cup to seven. Most are antiques now and you must pay more, but they are still around. (These were replaced by the "Mr. Coffee" makers, by far the worst because all coffee filters change the complexity of the coffee.)

Percolated coffee is "burned" coffee period. All Percolators destroy vital flavors in coffee and it should be avoided. Don't buy these antiques, they are part of the 50s legacy, now long gone.

Also, but 100 percent columbian types, you can't go wrong. AVoid cheap coffee like "Chase & Sans forlorn", "Maxwell Louse", "Forgers",all bad. Choc full of Nuts is OK. for the cheap set.

Three Ladies in a Sauna


THREE WOMEN, TWO YOUNGER, AND ONE SENIOR CITIZEN, WERE SITTING NAKED IN A SAUNA.

SUDDENLY THERE WAS A BEEPING SOUND. THE YOUNG WOMAN PRESSED HER FOREARM AND THE BEEP STOPPED.

THE OTHERS LOOKED AT HER QUESTIONINGLY. 'THAT WAS MY PAGER,' SHE SAID. I HAVE A MICROCHIP UNDER THE SKIN OF MY ARM.

A FEW MINUTES L ATER, A PHONE RANG. THE SECOND YOUNG WOMAN LIFTED HER PALM TO HER EAR.

WHEN SHE FINISHED, SHE EXPLAINED, 'THAT WAS MY MOBILE PHONE. I HAVE A MICROCHIP IN MY HAND.'

THE OLDER WOMAN FELT VERY LOW -TECH.. NOT TO BE OUT DONE, SHE DECIDED SHE HAD TO DO SOMETHING JUST AS IMPRESSIVE. SHE STEPPED OUT OF THE SAUNA AND WENT TO THE BATHROOM..

SHE RETURNED WITH A PIECE OF TOILET PAPER HANGING FROM HER REAR END.

THE OTHERS RAISED THEIR EYEBROWS AND STARED AT HER.
THE OLDER WOMAN FINALLY SAID..........WELL, WILL YOU LOOK AT THAT....I'M GETTING A FAX!!

I read somewhere recently that the perfect and most tasty way to drink coffee was with a knob of butter, instead of milk. I've been wary to waste any precious coffee trying it and it sounds disgusting.

Anyone tried it?

It's for making espresso mostly but it also makes a damn fine cup of regular joe.
