I am really getting into Latte's

I got this mr. coffee that not only makes lattes, but also makes just regular coffee. pretty tasty



And what I like about lattes, is that its milk and expresso and that's it. I stopped drinking regular coffee because I couldn't help but load it up with half and half and sugar, but the latte tastes really great with just whole milk and that I definitely can live with.

Damn, this is an old thread. My only contribution to it was a post explaining why I never bothered going the Chemex route. Here I am now and it seems to me like I've been using a Chemex for ages. Only way to go.

As for me, 24g and 16oz of water. Spent about a month dialing that in, and Tbs are just too inconsistent. Besides, everybody should have a scale that measures grams. I found long ago that I needed very little caffeine to keep me going, so I gradually tapered off. Once I got below 25% or so vicious headaches start to keep me up at night after a few days. I now blend 70/30 decaf to regular and it works great. No headaches. Peps me up in the morning. Easy on the tummy. Nice dark and bold bean for the decaf, and typical breakfast blend for the reg. One of the local roasters at the neighborhood Central Market. Half & Half and a bit of brown sugar and it works great for me.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

My Dad gave me a new coffee brewer.

I don't know what it's called.

It basically has a reservoir at the bottom - then theres a channel up into a tray where you put coffee grounds.

Then another channel which goes up into the "jug" portion. It's all screwed together and you heat it up on the hob.

The boiling water travels up through the coffee and up into the Jug section at the top.

My friend sent me this today:

Neglected Food Bubbles: The Espresso Coffee Foam

Quote
Espresso foam has often been considered a sort of magic event with its fate linked to the experience of a skilled barista (coffee bar technician) instead of being the result of Chemistry and Physics. Unfortunately, this situation has created various ingrained beliefs and myths which, as in the case of other beverages,2 have precarious scientific foundations, if any.

From the ocean comes the notion that the realise lies in rhythm. The rhythm of vision is dancer, and when you dance you´re always on the one. From the looking comes to see, wondrous realise real eyes....

She said she wanted 12 inches and to wake up, so I gave her DeLonghi.

I must've missed this thread the first time it came around, and the second as well.  Missed out on a great "quote-out-of-context" opportunity, but I'll take it now:

it really grinds my gears when, like an idiot, I spill my coffee all over the place. I just ordered this:  The might mug



It grips to the table and only releases when you lift strait up

Here's news people goofing around with it. I hope its sweet
