Of actual solutions to problems (also something about Snowpiercer)

#shareyourkape #friedhats #indonesiafrinsa #anaerobicprocess

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.

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.

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”.

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.
