What will you use to heat your water?

Looking at electric kettles now. Reviews seem controversial. Even regarded models have a number of scary reviews  :-\

Di's what Tp4 uses for all Tea + Ramen purposes. !!


Purists might go with a glass or ceramic coat kettle, but IMHO, they're too inconvenient for modern lifestyles.

Tp4 haz the older version with the cordless dispenser battery,  but it's more/less the same.

The reason you don't want these base + cordless kettle models,  Is because the base has copper contact plates soldered to wires.

These plates heat up and the solder joints fail over time.  It usually also semi melts the plastic around the plate, so even if you get the solder back on, it won't seat properly.

Overall.. I've gone through too many of them before I finally said enough, and got the dispenser type from zoji

Haha I see it now. That is a nice piece of kit but $$$ and it is too nice to take to work  :(

[Edit]
I found one for $31 and comes with a thermometer from Cusimax.  :thumb:
So coffee grinder + French press + Kettle for a total of just over $100. Not too shabby.

Been buying a bag or two of Klatch Coffee's stuff. We've settled on Mocha Java Blend being our favorite out of what we tried, which isn't a lot because a fair portion of their coffee is just out of our price range. That's not getting into the special coffees they get.

Kind of sucks though. I'm be having some surgery in the coming months (gastric bypass, thanks to my psych meds actively fighting my weight loss attempts and my NASH meaning I need to drop a lot of weight pronto) and my doctor doesn't want me drinking anything with caffeine in it. Which means either no coffee or decaff. No way am I gonna torture myself with decaff, especially not the stuff I can get from the store. Not unless I can find a bag of decaf that I can use with either a Bodum or an Aeropress for 15 bucks or less (and at least 10 ounces at that) that doesn't taste like weak battery acid. Open to recommendations, keep in mind that for me, internet is preferred (no car and the area's public transportation is terrible.

Edit: @JP very nice kettle there. I might pick one up once I'm no longer reliant on protein drinks (it will be a few months--I'll be drinking it a week before surgery, the week of surgery, and at least two weeks after).

Dang that sucks. Hopefully all goes well. I know it's not coffee but you could look into various teas. Actually look into decaffeinated teas (this process is different than decaffeinated coffee). Also Rooibos tea (technically not a tea) is naturally caffeine-free.

I realized today at the grocery store I've been buying the same coffee for months. Tangletown Blend from Zoka. It's so ****ing good- lite, citrus notes, acidic and energetic with a lush mouthfeel. It's such a great blend it's become my everyday standard.

HA! That's funny because my wife used to only drink coffee if she was with me while out-and-about and I'd have to stop at a shoppe to get my coffee fix. Since she's recently embraced the keto fad she's now a regular morning coffee drinker. Makes me proud, but also sad  :-\

I've come to the conclusion that almond milk in all forms completely disrupts the taste of any coffee. The flavor profile of almond milk is simply too strong for the flavors of the coffee to remain intact, and it doesn't enhance the flavor as a heavy cream or high fat milk would do. It instead distracts from the flavor of the coffee.

I tried almond milk once, I wasn't a fan. I mainly use whole milk lately for coffee.

This! Half n half just waters down your coffee, whole milk is even worse. Also, there's a night and day difference between organic heavy whipping cream from grass-fed cows and the non-organic stuff.

Organic unsalted butter is also good, but not really my thing.

I have gotten to where I pretty much only drink black coffee and/or lattes. The problem with black coffee is that you can REALLY taste it if it is bad coffee.

I prefer almond bev over milk, now. I transitioned to almond/cashew/coconut/etc from milk because of a healthy phase I was going through several years ago. I wasn't impressed at first but now I prefer it. Plus, CHOLESTEROL.. !!  :p

Yep, butter is good in coffee. As a niņito I would dip buttered Saltines in espresso with my abuelos. Delicious fuel for any 8-year-old!

Be sure to invest in a burr grinder and some not-store coffee. Brands like Klatch Coffee, Grounds for Change and some of JBC Coffee Roaster's lineups have good options around 15 bucks per 12 ounces (or as low as 12 bucks for the same in some cases). AeroPress also prefers a grind between a French Press and Drip Coffee (ie Bodum or Chemex), and actually requires water 10°F cooler than French Press/Drip for optimum taste, so don't treat it like you would a Chemex.

And don't try to push down to get a crema. The AeroPress isn't a true espresso machine and bottoming the plunger out will just cause the coffee to become nasty. Stop pushing the plunger before you bottom out.

I've wanted to get a chemex but I think any major difference at this point would be psychological.

If you've got a good grind using quality coffee, proper technique, temperature control and accurate measurement it can't be that different... can it?

What about the clever dripper? Is that the name. Guy at the local shop talks it up over chemex. The coffee sits in the water for a few then pours through.

The cup was pretty bomb but I've never had a regular pour over.

And another thing to add to my coffee wishlist.

This looks interesting and seems ideal if your in a hurry or don't want to get too technical.

It would suck though if you accidentally hit the bottom before you got it on a mug.

I just watched a video and was surprised how fast it drained.

That thing looks just like the Ingenuitea I use at work, but with a filter.

Do you like that?? I did have that on my amazon wishlist.

Not very if you have a dishwasher. The tea dregs can be a little annoying dumping them out as you may have to bang them out a few times.

Does the quality of pour over really matter? I have only ever had Walmart and Amazon kits that were like ~$30 at most. Thinking about getting a chemex.
I've wanted to get a chemex but I think any major difference at this point would be psychological.

If you've got a good grind using quality coffee, proper technique, temperature control and accurate measurement it can't be that different... can it?

What about the clever dripper? Is that the name. Guy at the local shop talks it up over chemex. The coffee sits in the water for a few then pours through.

The cup was pretty bomb but I've never had a regular pour over.
And another thing to add to my coffee wishlist.

This looks interesting and seems ideal if your in a hurry or don't want to get too technical.

It would suck though if you accidentally hit the bottom before you got it on a mug.

I just watched a video and was surprised how fast it drained.

He said it was a cross between immersion and a standard pour over.

You guys that do pour overs. Anyone got a line on an affordable electric kettle? Wanting to test the waters with pour overs on a budget.

I bought this one for $31 but haven't tried it yet since I still haven't received my French Press. From the reviews I've read I believe the downside to this one is that the thermometer isn't as accurate when the water levels are lower but that's not a big deal.

Thanks, seems like to spend $50 you will get a pretty decent one, seems a bit steep to heat water. I'll look into the first one.
