Coffee Wishlist as of 2020 (except there wasn’t a list prior to 2020)

#shareyourkape #lakbaybrew #drinkkaperesponsibly

With our company announcing that work from home will be extended beyond January 2021, the interest to add to my home coffee equipment just keeps increasing. This doesn’t mean I’ll be buying any of these immediately: these are things that I wish I could own someday. It’s just nice to think about owning things that when you do have the opportunity to get them, you feel so fulfilled and accomplished.

My (unqualified) thoughts about Lilydrip (this one the GIO)

#shareyourkape #lilydrip #lilydripgio #timemore

“You will never want to not be upgrading”. Now that saying can be used either as a positive or a negative, depending on the agenda of who’s saying it to you. It’s mostly associated with tech (because it’s the most obvious area of application for it) but when you really think about it, that applies to almost everything – even ourselves and yes, coffee. At the end of the day, being stagnant about something is almost as bad as chasing every upgrade you don’t need.

Early thoughts about the Timemore (White) Black Mirror Scale – by someone not qualified to review it

#shareyourkape #timemoreblackmirror #timemorecoffeescale #lakbaybrew

The closest things to reviews I do on coffee equipment is when I write one of those “My (unqualified) thoughts…” and they are what the title implies: thoughts about the product by someone unqualified to do a review about them. I want to use whatever equipment as much as I can before I write my thoughts about it, but I just got this Timemore (white) black mirror scale and I just can’t wait to share my initial thoughts. So now, if I haven’t used an equipment for more than 10 times (and I’m too excited about and have nothing else to write), I’ll just write one of these. Here are my initial thoughts about the Timemore (white) black mirror scale – basic version.

My (unqualified) thoughts about the “Hello” Coffee Scale

It only says “Coffee Scale” on the box. Also sometimes referred to as the Shopee Scale, though I bought mine through Lazada, the “Hello” scale is my first scale to have a built-in timer. I would have loved to tell you I thought hard about buying this, even weighing in on the Pros and Cons, but it wasn’t. I was in Lazada during the 8.8 sale to buy a replacement aircon unit and this scale was suggested to me during checkout. My first scale, that small  chrome bugger, had a bit of water damage. Though it still eventually worked again, I reckoned a new scale would be a good idea as a backup plan.
