What are your thoughts on the city's coffee offerings?

A 10 second pull? That is inexcusable. You should have asked for them to remake it.

Chromatic Coffee Co. in Santa Clara

Melanie, Your welcome.I was just commenting on how easy it is ordering beans from their website. Next time i go there in person, I will order a pour over. It's been sooo long since I've had anything other than Chromatic Gamut and linea espresso blend.

You are correct. I will add, ordering beans online is fantastic. Ordered Sunday, got them Tuesday with free priority mail.

The Perils of Coffee Snobbery

If you don't like it, you don't have to drink it. Enjoy your Maxwell House.

Completely agree with the little known Iron @ Steam. Just a beautiful piece of art Oliver is using and he gets the most out of the Chromatic Gamut beans he uses. May be the best shot of espresso in the city.

Why is pour-over coffee better? [Split from Boston board]

More than a hotter or cooler extraction.I think under or over extracted would make more of a difference.

Transporting wine and spirits in car for 6 hours

How in the world does wine and spirits get transported from the source to the wholesaler to the store from which it is purchased? This may be a case of over thinking a non issue.

My Technivorm quit--service?

If you have to descale monthly. it may be time to check the hardness of your water.

How many SF 49ers football fans really want Vegan food?

You don't think the 49er ownership polled season ticket holders what food would be popular before and during the stadium build? You aren't implying football fans are so unsophisticated that all they want is beer and hot-dogs?

Avoiding static with a burr coffee grinder

Simple solution. Need one eye dropper. Three small drops of water on the unground beans= no static.

returning food to supermarket?

I just love the people who return a 3/4 eaten bag of potato chips saying they were stale. Store has nothing to lose giving credit then sticking vendor with giving the store credit.

This practice is one of the reasons for sky rocketing food costs.

Fish Tacos - SF Dish of the Month March 2014

Has anyone been to Taqueria San Bruno in the industrial section of San Mateo Ave? It is directly across the street from Sky Park. I have never even heard of this place until a co-worker told me

Their Shrimp Taco was really excellent and judging from the food I saw on the tables really makes me want to go back.

So what is on your Super Bowl Sunday menu?

Nobody in Northern California is planning on watching this year.

Big beard in the fish store?

The PC answer would be no. But in reality, for whatever reason, yes it may.

Sugar/carb addiction - how long until recovery? Until re-addiction?

To crave something, and to be physically addicted to something are two complete different things.

Carb-free, anyone?

The thing about not eating many carbs is that you get that full feeling faster and don't get those hunger pangs. So more than likely one eats less over all when eliminating carbs.

Carb-free, anyone?

Well, that deserves a hearty congratulations. Losing the weight is a lot easier than keeping it off. Keep it up! or, I should say, keep it off!!

Buy citric acid at any big or small hardware store. It may also be available at a grocery store. If they have a section that specializes in canning.

Where do you buy ground coffee in Manhattan to brew at home?

May I suggest redbird coffee. They are now offering subscriptions tailored personally for your wants. Or as what I do, order five lb. get free shipping. I split the bag up in to mason jars and freeze. I couldn't be happier.

Best way to bring smoothies to work?

Have you given any thought to bringing your blender to work? Bring your ingredients then blend it immediately before you want to drink.

Olive Garden has been disappointing me quite a bit lately?

Well, it seems you solved your own problem.

pot luck hot dish carriers??

Wrap your dishes in tin foil, then bath towels and put it in an 'igloo' type cooler. BBQ people do this on a regular basis for ribs etc etc. meat stays hot for a good four hours.
