Addicted to Coffee

Good choice. Enjoy it

Addicted to Coffee

thought it would be easier to clean buying sight unseen. The thermal would be good choice. We have quite a few thermal containers to pour into if we want and the coffee is finished in under an hour in the morning so it's not sitting for long.

No but brewing temps are similar. I think mine averages 208

Addicted to Coffee

The model I have is the one in the picture I posted. It's a good solid machine. Excellent drip coffee brewed at the correct temperature. Simple design which is easy to clean

Addicted to Coffee

Got introduced to Mayorga over 10 yrs ago. First with their cigars. Didn't even know they roasted coffee at the time, then the coffee before moving to home roasting

The Latest "Yay Me" thread

Master of left overs.
Small pieces of uncooked fish, left over corn and roasted cauliflower. Okay some onion was used and basil and onion flowers from plants going to seed.

Cooking Show Hosts Need To Remove Jewelry When They Are Cooking!

If you cultured every thing around your own kitchen it would scare the crap out of you but we survive. I don't want to live in a sterile environment. My immune system would get lazy and a lazy immune system will kill you

Are my coffee beans too dry?

As a home roaster I agree but the coffee should not be watery in flavor

Any memories of "poor people food" from your childhood that you still crave?

You poor dear. Tragic

Anyone watching this on PBS?

What a wonderful series.

Vivian Howard is so endearing. And the farmers and "characters" she visits are so engaging. It's a feel good experience to watch each episode

Japanese chef's knife: Tojiro DP or something else?

Okay maybe I was right the first time. But after checking Chefknivestogo their price is $99.95. And that still is a damn good price for a VG 10 240mm Gyuto.

Who has it at the price you stated?

Japanese chef's knife: Tojiro DP or something else?

Chem, I could be wrong as it was a long time ago but I know it was relatively inexpensive and certainly under $100

Dried Beans Cooked From Scratch Tasting Worse Than Canned Beans?

After trying soaked black beans I went back to the no soak method several years ago for the exact reason. And have been trying to get others to do the same. You get so much more flavor in the beans and black beans don't take to long to cook san soaking. Like may 3 hrs and if you finish them in the over you don't have to worry about stirring

What did Y'all Grill this Weekend?

Did a bunch of wings on the smoker last Sunday. Always good

Bamix hand blender - which one?

I have the Gastro and appreciate the extra length. There are 2 Gastros. One is more powerful than the other. Didn't know that when I purchased mine which is the less powerful one but still does a good job

Masterchef returns with new judge

Sounds even more ridiculous than when I stopped watching. After the stripper pole dancer won. Nothing against pole dancers but the show had just become to staged for my liking
