That's awesome! The only old roaster around me is like 30-40 years old. Lol. And less than good.
It’s a common mistake, not a big deal, just one I hear quite often. I totally understand having it ground for you, it’s way easier than my 15-2o minute morning ritual with my Aeropress and grinder. Lol. The more you know, right? I sometimes cheat and use the Keurig brewer with reusable cups over my Aeropress or…
You shouldn’t refrigerate your coffee, it messes with the chemicals in coffee and the beans or grounds absorb the funk of the refridgerator. The ideal way to keep it is in a cool, dry place like a pantry and only grind what you need right before brewing for best flavor. A really good rule of thumb we tell people in my…
I learned a couple months ago not to keep more than a couple of bags in the house. That way I actually go through it steadily and don't let beans go to waste. I had to throw some out in early February, not that I was too broken up about those particular bags being ground and put in the plants.
Coffee, easily. I've become a coffee snob and will now always spend the extra $5+ on a bag of locally roasted beans versus preground grocery stores stuff or K-cups.
I like this way more than I should.
I’ve seen the Reds (my home team) play the Cubs at Wrigley Field, it was pretty cool. We’ll definitely be playing the weather by ear, unsure of how it’ll likely be until the week leading up to going.
I’m all about public transit if it means not paying a small fortune to park. Buses are not an issue for me, my buddy though might be lost. He isn’t very well acquainted with being in real cities.
We will keep this one in mind if we’re nearby. We’ve got a couple of places we plan to have already. Giordano’s, Girl and the Goat, the Duck Inn, among others.
I want one. I really, really want one.
I had already planned to ride the trains all weekend because I don’t want to pay for parking if I don’t have to. The boat tour is a maybe, we were thinking about biking down Lake Shore Drive though.
DD the Oreos because PB ones are the best.
I dislike the Fiesta but this looks pretty good in Kona Blue imo.
Hate to say it but... the Ford did. Looks great.
Life has been a bit interesting as of late. I’ve got 3 weeks until the semester and finals end for spring. The last day of which I'll be driving to Chicago for a small vacation after my last exam. Then 3 semesters straight until next summer, gonna have so much fun over the next year. On the bright side, I'm scheduled…
Very nice acquisition blackcar, I was confused briefly when I saw the name change. I would like to join the coalition but gave in early and bought a custom aluminum bracket for the Dart’s front plate.
Same here. I’m Supply Chain and Logistics Mgmt, what are you studying?
Ah, the joys of college(?) life. I’ve been doing much of the same, also trying not to smash my printer.
Actually have it reserved at my library already, I was surprised they had it since there are only two branches.
I'm lucky enough to live in Ohio which for some odd reason has a huge coffee culture, something like top 10 states for coffee in the US. So I'm kinda spoiled between work and the quality roasters I have access to. I hardly drink lattes outside of work only because I don't care for our espresso blend. Can never go…
