Hah, that thing is tiny!
Dang thats a good deal. I bet many people regret not buying 2 or 3.
Sounds like there have been many good deals in days past. I dont think well be seeing anything like that ever again.
Power outage at 0300 this morning.
House was 61F at 0730. Not too bad, fired up the woodstove. But thought I might have to go into the office today because no tech.
Undeterred, I made coffee w/ the dusty hand-grinder and a pot on the woodstove:
....and the power came back on at my 3rd sip.
Is that a ceramic #2 filter holder? If so, where did you get it?
Alas no, it's a Chantal #4 that I got on the River Store. My girlfriend has a ceramic #2 branded with a independent coffee shop's mark. The ceramic #2's seem harder to find.
This particular one gets the mass-to-hole ratio right, tho obviously better for larger coffee volumes. I like ceramic because it pulls some heat out of the water (and adds no plastic) and avoids scalding the coffee. But It's a bit too much mass for a single-cup brew. The coffee steeps fine because the central liquid is still hot enough, but it tends to overcool a bit as it drips out unless you're making a very large mug. The mug I use at Dr. Wood's house is big enough. The one in the picture above is a bit small to thread that temperature needle perfectly. I burn easily tho, so cooler is better than too hot for me.
And as usual, that's WAY more info than you were looking for.
Negra modelo was one of my favorites for years. Its been some time since ive enjoyed one. Im going to have to pick some up before long.
