You want to make Coffee vs You just want to drink Coffee

#shareyourkape #flairsignature #flairespressomaker

So here’s the deal: I now have my own Flair (a beautiful matte white Flair Signature from Etica Lifestyle); I want to use it every day; and I exert too much effort using it that I just want to drink good, no-fuss coffee the rest of the day. I wish I have an automatic coffee maker – oh wait, I have an OXO Brew Pour Over Coffee Maker with water tank so I’m good. Let’s discuss.

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 the Flair Espresso Maker

#shareyourkape #flairespressomaker #eticalifestyleph #properspro

Espresso is a special thing. It sometimes makes an otherwise bad day better, it can make business decisions clearer, and it helps give us those darn beautiful IG worthy latte art. I have been able to get decent coffee at home ever since lockdown started, I have been able to make espresso like drinks with an Aeropress, but proper espresso I thought I would only get when I venture out the house (and Cainta) again. Then Etica Lifestyle messaged me on Instagram and asked me if I wanted to try pulling shots of espresso at home with a Flair Epresso Maker. This isn’t a review, I am not qualified to do one, these are just my thoughts about it as a coffee consumer.

The Timemore C2, is it Fine for Espresso?

#shareyourkape #timemorechestnutc2 #timemoreph #flairespressomaker #

There has always been something I wanted to try on my own ever since I got my Timemore Chestnut C2 grinder: grinding beans for espresso for an actual espresso maker. I have tried grinding beans for Aeropresso, going as fine as 10 clicks on the Timemore C2, but it’s different when you have to make proper espresso. Well, I was offered by Etica Lifetstyle to try out a Flair Signature for a week and now I can finally find out for myself if a Timemore C2 can actually  – well at least for a Flair Espresso Maker.

I didn’t spill grinds to be artistic or anything, this was the first time I tried doing this. 10 clicks. It was a bad shot
