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.

What’s in the box? What’s in the boooooox? An electric kettle

My top post for 2020 is about a grinder (the Timemore Chestnut C2 Grinder)

It’s almost the end of the year, and of course it’s year-end review time – hooray (read that in the most sarcastic voice you can imagine). 2020 was the most consistent year for shareyourkape.com, talking about blog post frequency. So, it’s not surprising that it has also been the year with the most views (2019 was not even close). In previous years, the first part of my Instant Coffee series was my most viewed post. This year, by a landslide, it has been “My (unqualified) thoughts about the Timemore Chestnut C2 Grinder” which was only published this June 2022.

a reminder to apply an adequate level of scrutiny

#shareyourkape #latteartnoob

For some strange reason, I’ve recently been suggested a handful of YouTube videos that discuss the Juicero. It’s this sleek looking juicer, that was heavily backed by some big companies. You can say it’s like a coffee pod machine, though it was more like those Flavia machines that I only got to try during a visit to the company’s global headquarters. These circumvent being tagged with the notorious “instant” moniker by being (supposedly) a middle ground. See it does give you actual fruit and vegetable juice, but it comes in packets. The packets thing is why I say it’s more like a Flavia. Compared to the Flavia, however, the Juicero was somehow “weirder”.
