Mine arrived Friday but I didn't get a chance to tuck into it until today. Holidays are always demanding at work haha. They all cup well, and taste great. I did the Myanmar as a pour over, and other as espresso. They preformed well, and are surprisingly balanced. I am going to keep trying them different ways over the next few days since I have some time off from work! Thanks man!

Afternoon cappucino... :) Sweet Maria's "Ethiopiques" blend, which has become my favorite of their standard espresso blends. :thumbsup:

My pre-ordered Carothers HDFK that arrived not terribly long ago. One of the only times I've ever paid ahead for any knife, but Nathan has a great reputation! That was a hard wait! :eek: But it's a pretty fantastic knife! :cool: :D

Let me know what you think of the coffee soap also. Interested to find out if it actually works to remove kitchen odors.

I never posted that my package came from SpyderPhreak SpyderPhreak . Glad to exchange gifts with you Jared. I'm pretty sure we crossed paths a few times when I lived in Lakewood a few years back. Got some fun knives, a sharpening stone, and some of Jared's famous home roasted coffee in a beautiful light to medium roast. Excited to give it a try! I think you'll like my gift. Some great Chicago coffees and a knife you won't find in Golden...

Hey guys, hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!!! Here's my secret santa stuff that I opened from Joel on Christmas morning!!! :D :thumbsup:

So we have here a couple great coffees, a cool French press mug (that I was previously unfamiliar with), and a pretty unusual, vintage Spyderco Delica. :cool: Back in ~2003 I had some Bodum French press mugs, that traveled to Europe with me, and saw a ton of use at work! I literally wore them out (and the Dutch guys I worked with thought I was crazy, lol ;)).

So far, we definitely prefer the Two Brothers as a drip/press brew, and the La Colombe as an espresso/cappucino. Both are nearly gone now. :(

Now, moving on to this unique Spyderco. :eek: I haven't really had a chance to research this thing yet, but because it has an integral FRN clip on the back, I know from experience that it's definitely older than ~2001. But I don't recall a Delica ever having Kraton grip inserts. :confused: And that box, yeah, that's Japanese writing there... Maybe a JDM-only model??? :cool: :thumbsup:

Thank you Joel!!! :cool: :D

Just roasted some of the India that Y'shua sent. Went a little darker than I wanted with the first batch, but there is still plenty left to mess around with.

I roasted some of the Yirgacheffe from my Christmas package last night. It's been a while since I had any, and it turned out pretty good. Just enjoying some while cleaning off some snow today.

Love me some coffee. Studies continue to find it has various potential health benefits. Such as, Protects DNA from damage.

Consumption of a dark roast coffee blend reduces DNA damage in humans: results from a 4-week randomised controlled study

Abstract
Purpose

To determine the DNA protective effects of a standard coffee beverage in comparison to water consumption.
Methods

The single-blind, randomised controlled study with parallel design included healthy women (n = 50) and men (n = 50) recruited from the general Central European population. The subjects were randomised in a coffee and a control group, with stratification for sex and body mass index. The study comprised two periods of 4 weeks: a preconditioning period, with daily consumption of at least 500 ml water but no coffee, nor tea, nor any other caffeine-containing product. During the subsequent intervention period the coffee group consumed 500 ml of freshly brewed dark roast coffee blend per day, the control group consumed water instead. On the last day of each period, blood was drawn and analysed by comet assay (single-cell gel electrophoresis) to assess the level of DNA damage (strand breakage).

Results

At the end of the intervention period the mean level of DNA strand breaks in the coffee group has decreased in comparison to the control group [difference in means 0.23% TI (tail intensity), p = 0.028]. The mean change from baseline (delta value) was − 23% in the coffee group (p = 0.0012). Effects of coffee intake were similar for men and women. During intervention, neither group showed any significant change in body weight or calorie intake.

Conclusions

Our results indicate that regular consumption of a dark roast coffee blend has a beneficial protective effect on human DNA integrity in both, men and women.
