You never want to add water. You need to brew it hot to release the flavor. The only thing you add water to is espresso to lengthen the shot.

>>166500610
If you brew the coffee a little stronger and add water afterward logically speaking the product is going to be about the same strength.
Have you never had iced coffee or anything like that? If you brew the coffee stronger it'll be the right strength when the ice starts melting.

How do I get into coffee?
>>
>>166500657
I was a barista for three years. Most of the iced coffee is powder in a bag, the one that isn't is made with tons of espresso shots. That's the only acceptable way to lengthen coffee. If you just brew a strong-ass pot of coffee and add water later, you don't get the cumulative effect of a weaker cup, you get a watery strong cup. You have to appreciate the brewing process and how it changes the ph of the water.

they're really into drip coffee in Japan, and thats whole different ballpark when approaching black coffee. If you're drinking your shit black when its french pressed or batch brewed, of course its gonna taste pretty mediocre and burnt out. Its better to stick with pour-over shit if you want taste your beans and get that nice ass body
>>
>>166500781
Thanks anon
>>
>>166500751
Sorry, that's really not how it works. That's just unscientific superstition.
Have you ever made coffee with drip brewing or a similar method? The first drops are very strong and the last drops are weak. But it all mixes together and produces a cup of even strength. Adding water at the end has the same effect. Obviously if the water is too cold it ruins the flavor (chemical reactions take place when coffee cools down in certain ways) but you've got to agree that adding water of the same temperature as the coffee has the same effect as using less beans.
>>

>>
>>166500854
>unscientific superstition
Brewing a pot never runs pure water, even the last drop has taken on change. If you don't think that liquid doesn't have a different ph than tap water, then I don't really care how big of chemistry fag you are, you're not applying common sense.
>>
>>166500962
Of course it has a different ph than water. But when you mix water (of appropriate temperature) with brewed coffee the end result will have the same pH as if you simply brewed the coffee less strong.
>>
>>166500993
If I'm making a Mr. Coffee 12-cup, and I go with 8 scoops over 4, it won't necessarily double the change in ph. Adding water will always cut it down the same amount for whatever amount you add. I agree with the fucking with the heating/cooling process and the effect on flavor, but even adding warm water to preserve that will always show up in the body. It just don't taste right.

The exception being espresso because it's the only way to truly concentrate coffee.
>>
Canned coffee from nip's vending machines taste like diluted coffee, not even good as an Americano. Disturbing
>>
>>166501062
>it won't necessarily double the change in ph
pH is logarithmic so of course not.
Obviously there's some non linearity with drip coffee (there's non linearity with all methods but especially with drip coffee, something like a french press should be more linear), but adding water will still be the same as making a weaker brew. It may be that adding an equal amount of water to the coffee is not the exact same coffee as brewing with half the beans, but it's exactly the same as brewing with some lesser amount of beans.
If you use a french press, espresso, or cold brew the process will be pretty close to linear with reasonable amounts of beans (obviously if you add a crazy amount of beans the water won't be able to dissolve all the desired compounds), and diluting with twice water will create an indistinguishable product from brewing with half the beans
>>
>>166501154
Did you factor in the additives to the water that burn/taper off during brewing? Because you're dumping them right back in the concentration found in the water you started with.
>>
>>166501203
What additives to the water? What do you mean "taper off?" I get that tap water experiences some changes when heating though,
If you're concerned just add the right kind of water.
You could use distilled water (I have a reverse osmosis tap that provides very nearly the same thing).
You could boil your water and let it cool down, this would get rid of the chlorinated taste (if you have a zojirushi or similar water boiler this is what it does; it always boils the water before bringing it to the set temperature).
And frankly speaking there's very little taste difference between good filtered water before and after being boiled or otherwise heated.

Proper coffee is best without any milk. It distorts the flavour of the beans.
>>
>>166501261
>What additives to the water?
I'm from Flint, Michigan

If you're talking purely french press, where you get the water to temp and dump, there would be no difference in just adding water of the same temperature later, But if we're strictly talking drip, that's water that's been heated to 180, sat on a bed of grounds for a length of time, and dripped into a carafe on a hotplate. You couldn't really recreate those conditions in your to-be-added water, unless you just used old coffee that went through the same process.
>>
>>166501151
Canned vending machine coffee is marketed towards younger demographics so I imagine they all suck
>>
>>166501362
Even with drip adding water would just produce a more dilute solution with the same solutes. It would definitely still be the same as simply brewing weaker coffee, it's just that exactly how much coffee grounds to use to get the same product may not be obvious.
But in reality for a practical use like adding a little cool water to cool off the coffee it's just gonna be slightly more dilute and you don't need to worry about exactly how much coffee grounds you'd need to use to get the same product.

Coffee is for faggots, just like any other drug. I've never had any problem waking up or staying awake in the mornings because I never developed an addiction to caffeine. It also tastes like absolute garbage and it's an acquired taste, just like smoking cigarettes. Easily influenceable kids get into both to feel mature and get hooked for life on a shit tier habit.

Because they have taste and don't insist on making everything they consume taste like sugar or salt? Probably not, but that's the bullshit I'm going to believe.

Regardless, coffee comes black unless it's gross restaurant coffee, in which case half-n-half goes in. Tea is drank as it brews in water, unless you're a faggot, end of. Why in the hell you want to go out of your way to make something specific just to cover up it's flavor with something else is beyond me.

>Why in the hell you want to go out of your way to make something specific just to cover up it's flavor with something else is beyond me.
Are you against any kind of seasoning?
>>
>>166500480
Yes. Espresso, lattes and other mixed coffee drinks, and black coffee brewed by drip, poor-over, perculating, press, etc. are all different things you enjoy for different reasons.

Keep your espresso, unless it's a properly dry cappuccino. Otherwise, I'll take my pressed coffee, thanks.
>>
>>166507231
No, I'm against going out of your way to make something specific just to cover up it's flavor with something else. You can season a steak, but if you drop the fucking thing in in salt you've ruined it. Equally, you can brew a cup of tea, but if you cover all the flavor of that tea up with sugar and cream and lemon or whatever other shit you feel like putting in there, you've wasted the tea. The flavor of most tea is so light compared to the shit people put in it that you might as well just add your heaps of cream and sugar to hot water; it'll taste the same, anyway.

If you've got some ridiculously strong tea that's been over-brewed, or a """"tea"""" blend like Earl Grey that has an overpowered taste to begin with (before you more than likely over-brew it) go nuts with all that shit; it's not like I don't when I drink those kinds of tea blends, since they aren't worth drinking for their own flavor anyway. But why in the fuck would you pay decent money for a good puerh or something just to dump a bunch of bullshit in it?
>>
>>166507384
fuck you, tea with lemon is top tier
>>
>>166507414
Fuck you, tea blends with lemon to mask their overbearing flavor or enhance what subtlety might be there is acceptable; good tea is ruined with all that other horseshit. Develop your fucking palette.
>>
>>166507074
Strange. My grandfather put butter in his coffee although not like that. After he put butter on his toasts he stirs his coffee with butter knife
>>
>>166507384
>but if you drop the fucking thing in in salt you've ruined it.
So that's what you meant by cover up, now I get it.
I usually do over-brew the tea before mixing it with milk and sugar, otherwise it really does get hard to taste it.

same thing with any other brand, from craft beer to anime. try some niche brands out and find something you like and stick with it. usually they're better than the mass market brands.

and making your coffee with those beans at home would probably be way cheaper than getting starbucks every day. and taste better too.

The fucking mental gymnastics people do to try to prove this is some kind of "energy drink #lifehack" with barely any scientific basis is the best part. Just admit that you like the way it tastes; that's perfectly acceptable. You don't have to justify liking something other people might think is weird by using it to validate your ego.

>>166507538
I appreciate that you can read through my triggered rant to get my meaning. I'm not even a purist or a pretentious "connoisseur"; I've got Celestial Seasonings and Twinings right next to $20/ounce loose-leaf Chinese shit. I am the worst kind of pleb, because I'll drink literally anything. I just don't understand why you would go through the hassle of steeping a proper cup of good tea just to fuck it up by making half the cup shit that isn't tea.

Fat is unhealthy is debunked almost a decade now. This "lifehack" is just capitalizing on this. Funny thing is you don't even have to put it in your coffee.

I'm an actual adult who used to only drink black coffee.
1 half and half (or full milk) actually enhances the flavor and slightly reduces perceived acidity.
Sugar does not help. If your coffee is too bitter, it just sucks to begin with.
>>
>>166500535
I refuse to believe this. Just because they don't drink as much milk as say Scandinavians or god knows who drinks a lot of milk, doesn't mean they don't milk whatsoever.

Just means Nips don't eat their cereals with milk.

For context, mega death sauce tastes like shit, aside from being stupidly spicy. There are sauces with much higher scoville ratings that actually taste good.

Cut down slowly. Try 3 cups first, when that seems to work, 2, and so on. When you cut it off completely, there's probably gonna be headaches for few days. Just bear with it, it should pass in two weeks tops.

Also, try switching to caffeine pills instead of coffee so you get yourself weaned off the psychological part of routine.

Hot coffee wasn't the standard when I visited Japan.
Whenever I ordered coffee either they asked me or I had to specify that I wanted "hotto coffee", which coming from a Nordic country was a bit jarring to me.

I also tried one of those meme coffee in a can from a vending machine, that you see from time to time in anime.
It didn't taste good, not like any cold coffee does.
>>
Anime needs more meme lattes.

Nips have bad taste. Just look at their bland as fuck flavorless meals.

Also coffee with milk and sugar blends wonderfully with pepperoni+cheese or bacon and eggs sandwiches. Anons who drink it plain are missing out

You're not living your life correctly

Take a french bread, insert black forest american cheese and deli pepperoni slices, put it into a panini press until toasted and eat with a coffee w/milk&sugar. The taste of when the coffee hits the sandwich is amazing and it just doesn't happen with a plain black coffee.
