You want to make Coffee vs You just want to drink Coffee

#shareyourkape #flairsignature #flairespressomaker

So here’s the deal: I now have my own Flair (a beautiful matte white Flair Signature from Etica Lifestyle); I want to use it every day; and I exert too much effort using it that I just want to drink good, no-fuss coffee the rest of the day. I wish I have an automatic coffee maker – oh wait, I have an OXO Brew Pour Over Coffee Maker with water tank so I’m good. Let’s discuss.

Coffee before a meal. Coffee after a meal. (SEO, baby)

#shareyourkape #coffeebeforemeal #coffeeaftermeal

YouTube (this isn’t a piece about YouTube). I have shifted through several genres of YouTube videos throughout the pandemic but the most consistent have been commentary channels. One of these guys, Leon Lush, had a nice quote in one of his recent videos related to Qanon. He said “The internet is a fickle bitch… no matter what you want to believe is true, you will be able to find a version of that online to latch on to.” So, should you drink coffee before or after a meal? Let’s talk about a version for each.

Coffee is mostly associated as a breakfast thing, but it’s normal to drink it around lunch and dinner

Kind of Coffee News: Another Study about the Apparent Health Benefits of Kape

#shareyourkape #healthycoffee #coffeeandhealth

Coffee is good for your heart, apparently. There’s a recent study saying that coffee consumption “may lower the risk of heart failure”, but it looks like it was only if you drank caffeinated coffee. However, and I’ll say it as early as now, it still will not replace eating a healthy diet and exercise. Also, always check with your doctor especially if your body tells you something every time you drink coffee and consume in moderation.

Another one

Noisy Coffee

#shareyourkape #noisycoffee #seriouskape

Home coffee brewers, especially those who only started during the pandemic, I know I’m not the only who will commit to a specific dripper/brewer and beans combination for the day. Now, unless you’re a robot (or using a precision brewer), you won’t brew coffee 100% similar every time but you can make it as close as possible – especially if you’ve taken notes (which I don’t). But does it still happen that however hard you try, your resulting cups of coffee still taste different from each other? According to these articles, that may be because of what you’re hearing while drinking the coffee.

Coffee taste is apparently affected by our auditory senses as well

My (unqualified) thoughts about the Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle

#shareyourkape #fellowstaggekg #coffeephl

I was using a knock off Hario Buono Kettle early on during the 2020 lockdown. I’m not proud of it and I did it because it was cheap, it already had a thermometer built-in, and I naively thought it would only be in need for a couple months more. Well I don’t have to be ashamed anymore because now I have a Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle which looks amazing, it boils water, and uhhhhh – it has a built-in game.
