My (unqualified) thoughts about the Aeropress

#shareyourkape #aeropressph #aeropressreview #shareyourkapeunqualifiedthoughts

Not breaking new ground with this one, I’m sure. The Aeropress has been around for a long time and has kind of a cult following – it has its own world’s championships and movie for heaven’s sake. There are many ways to make coffee with it and it can even make something near to espresso. There are several reviews and brew guides with the Aeropress as a subject, mostly by people who actually know what they’re doing, but I have nothing else to write about and have been using my Aeropress exclusively as of late so it seemed fitting.

The shareyourkape Home Coffee Station Hierarchy (totally not a thing)

#shareyourkape #coffeestationhierarchy

I’ve overhauled my coffee station at home to become somewhat minimalistic. Currently, it only has one scale, manual grinder (along with its accessories), an electric kettle, a couple of carafes, filters, an origami dripper, and of course coffee beans. Why?

Just to clarify, I didn’t get rid of the other stuff, my wife just helped me arrange upstairs so I can have a storage space for coffee things I am not currently using (like the Hello Scale).

So we won’t get confused like this set-up (a sort of hybrid between two tiers)

Of actual solutions to problems (also something about Snowpiercer)

I’ve been watching the second season of the Snowpiercer series on Netflix and I absolutely love it. Just finished what technically is the penultimate episode of the season (although it is just episode 8 of 10) and I just like how they wrote that. Without spoiling anything so much, the blow dealt by one major character to another one was so decisive without needing to resort to force. It was done by highlighting his strengths while also making his opponent’s weakness so clear that you can’t really question who won this one. It was good writing, good acting, and ultimately great directing. How was it done? There was a problem, someone qualified had the best solution for it.
