Buy whatever makes you happy (if you can without compromising something else more important) if it makes you buy good coffee

Look, I know I wrote a rambling post about some coffee gear being overpriced. Although I didn’t name it then, I was thinking about the Fellow Stagg EKG as the really expensive electric kettle when I writing that – and now I just bought one. So maybe I’m just a hypocrite? Let’s find out.

Why (I think) Instant Coffee remains relevant

#shareyourkape #antiinstantcoffee #thirdwavecoffee

I noticed something when I re-posted (and boosted) the second part of my “Instant Coffee, Is It Kape?” series on Facebook: there were still some comments encouraging commercial Instant Coffee (yes, some even pushed this popular brand). If you’ve read that piece, I put some effort to try and show how commercial Instant Coffee can be detrimental for the coffee farmers and even the environment, yet people still encourage drinking commercial Instant Coffee in the comments for that post. Look, if you want to drink Instant Coffee then fine – I just want you to know the possible consequences for exclusively drinking commercial Instant Coffee.

Well, my friends, I can attest to this because I have actually used an iPhone 6’s (iPhone 6, not iPhone 6s just to be clear or unless you didn’t notice the apostrophe) camera to shoot a short film – an award winning short film in fact. (There will be something about coffee later).

My (unqualified) thoughts about the Timemore Chestnut C2 grinder

#shareyourkape #timemoreph #timemorec2 #doyouevengrindbro

I think me posting that I was still satisfied with my Hario MM-2 small wooden grinder on April 24, 2020 and then ordering a Timemore Chestnut C2 grinder only weeks later – that sums up how quickly upgrades on home brewing gear has been during the Enhanced Community Quarantine for everyone. If you’ve been reading this blog, you already know I’m just a coffee consumer so take whatever my thoughts/opinions are about this grinder with a grain of salt, or coffee if you want to be cheeky about it.
