I use this stuff, usually cold, but it's just as good hot. It's cold brew, so it tastes better, and at 7 dollars for a bottle that gives you 16 cups of coffee, it's a pretty cost effective, especially when you factor in convenience.

>>
>>9781707
It's true, but there are many expensive coffees (15-20 buckos a lb) that are leagues above the cheaper but still quality options. Kind of like some kinds of liquor/beer/wine. It's a crapshoot though. Unless you can cup it first and decide yourself don't buy the hugely expensive beans

What the fuck is that container though?
Honestly though if you like cold brew just make it yourself. I use two pitchers, a reusable filter, and a strainer. All you need. If cost concerns you, buy pre-ground and you're getting literally GALLONS AND GALLONS of half-decent coffee for whatever you pay for preground.

I stopped drinking evil coffee 6 months ago and I feel great now.
Yes first week was hard,second week got bit easier but after that I had no cravings for coffee.
Now I don't have anxiety attacks, I'm relaxed and more focused.
My sleeping is much better now also.

Coffee was wrecking silent havoc on my body but now I'm free from this unnecessary shit.
If you have any brains you would consider stopping drinking this overpriced crap full of chemicals
that adds fake feeling of energy and brings depression and possible cancer if you drink dark roast coffee.

DARK ROAST COFFEE IS A SCAM
to sell substandard coffee beans at the same price per pound as good quality coffee beans roasted to medium roast.
Reason is that substandard coffee beans when roasted to safe medium roast will taste like shit, so evil marketers come up with the scam
to severally overheat the green coffee beans to get some kind of flavor out of them.
But that flavor is flavor of burnet charred turned carcinogenic (cancerous) shit because was heated to such high temperatures.

But the coffee industry is not telling you about it, because they need somehow to sell their shitty quality coffee beans.
Biggest scam ever in the food industry in my opinion.
And on top of it it's cancerous. At least ask for medium roasted coffee beans if you must drink this shit everyday.
Stupid are those who are drinking coffee on empty stomach first thing in the morning and stupid are those who are drinking several cups per day.

Of course there will be millions of stupid people who will never pay attention to warnings about negative effects of drinking dark roast coffee.
They are the same idiots who are eating hamburgers from fast food stores.

Hopefully some of you will think about it and think why reputable coffee roasting houses never roast their green coffee beans to a dark roast,
only to medium or lower levels.
There must be a reason for it, think about it.
>>
>>9781792
One side pours however much you want, the other side you squeeze until it fills up and dispenses one ounce of liquid, which is how much you use for 9 ounces of water, making a 10 ounce cup of coffee. I like it because I don't have to think about it.
>>
>>9781691
Just buy one container of that shit, remove that shit coffee, buy some of the better trader joe coffee and cold brew the entire thing. Makes many many gallons and tastes better if you pick a good coffee. You'll also spend about as much money as you would on one bottle on many fillups for it

And that reason is not to save on electricity bill, no.
Ask any reputable barista who knows their shit about coffee if dark roast beans considered to be properly roasted in order to get best flavors and aromas from coffee beans.
Worst are the espresso dark roast coffee beans.

California coffee could be served with cancer warning labels if lawsuit succeeds.
A non-profit group wants coffee manufacturers, distributors and retailers to post ominous warnings about a cancer-causing chemical — acrylamide — stewing in every brew.

https://www.thestar.com/news/world/2017/09/25/california-coffee-could-be-served-with-cancer-warning-labels-if-lawsuit-succeeds.html

Same as the cigarette manufacturers were for years denying that cigarettes are un-safe to smoke and cause cancers, same is with the coffee industry, they are hiding
truth from naive uneducated consumers.
But the change is coming BIG TIME and truth about health problems with drinking coffee (especially dark roast coffee) will be spread and people will get educated
and dark dirty dishonest secrets of coffee industry will be exposed.
And people will be able to make educated choices good for their health based on solid science
not based on dishonest marketing scams hiding the truth pushed by The BIG COFFEE as it was in the past with The BIG TOBACCO.

Literally anything that is browned or toasted will have acrylamide. Coffee, bread, even fruits which are dried by heating in ovens, such as prunes.

>>9781981
YES.SO WHAT?
Are you scared that your coffee business will be affected when people will learn about the dark dirty secrets of the coffee industry,
and or stop drinking all togheter or will demand healthier product from coffee roasting houses and you will no longer be able to sell
low quality coffee in dark roast at the same price as the higher quality coffee in medium roast.

Some coffee roasting houses got away for way too long scamming consumers on the prices for much inferior product
and hiding the health risks associated with drinking dark roast coffee.

Most commercial coffee beans have already tons of nasty chemicals on them from the growing plantations,
and yet the dark roast is adding another health danger to it.

Some of you owners of roasting houses and distributers of coffee should be ashamed of yourselves for being dishonest about all those serious health hazards.
But you are only concerned about your profits and push the blues that coffee is super good for consumers yet you are hiding the other facts about toxic side of coffee.

lol, my bad.
Would you care to tell if you bough it from a local roaster or big store or online.
I never heard of it before, that's crappy, you can f-up even expensive grinder I think, I guess depends how hard is the rock.
I guess heat from roasting might soften the rock a bit.

Just read the few posts from the link you provided, here is couple of interesting posts for those who are lazy to go there.

"Happens quite often, especially in dry process coffees. If your roaster has a large operation, they will most likely have a de-stoner which can use either weight/air/particle size or magnets to cull the stones prior to roasting.
If your roaster is a small operation, then they will rely on eyeballing the stones and removing them by hand.
More often than not, the stones will be small enough that they will fall through the roaster cooling tray.
The next stage, would be being caught by the person doing the bagging and packaging.
Typically, the stones are soft volcanic rock or limestone which won't usually mess up your grinder too much but won't do your grinder any favors either. Usually, they will fall to the bottom of the bag."

"As a roaster, we have a de-stoner that removed 95% of hard materials from our coffee. It is such a great tool to have.
But as others have said, most of the time the stones are just cement or volcanic pumice or similar. It will be chewed up by the grinder no problem but is never good either.
We also find a lot of corn and once I found a human tooth.. That caused a bit of concern.
We have heard a story from another local roaster of them finding an expended bullet casing, but I'm not sure if that is true."

It's a rather big company, some of their stuff isn't too bad, good even, but then some of their other stuff is pretty bad.
The rock I had was pretty brittle, was able to crush it quite easily.

> once I found a human tooth.
That's pretty fucking disgusting, would have probably thrown the entire bag out if that happened to me.
>>
>>9782598
I would send them email with picture of the bag (especially that part that has the Lot number) and inform them that you found a rock in their coffee.

Would be interesting experiment to see how they react to you, if they offer you any apology and perhaps send you a free bag of coffee.
This will show how good they are at the customer service end of their business.
Especially if you are a multi time customer of theirs.

Not necessary.
I guess if you eat at chinese places and found garbage in their food and show it to them they would deny and yell and bark at you like mad dogs.
But if you would deal with decent people they might,(might) act properly and at least apologize and offer something for your so called troubles.

I'm not suggesting to do that to get free bag of coffee, I piss on their free bag of coffee.
I would be interested to observe how they handle this from Customer Service point of view. More like an experiment for me.
And depending how they responded to me I would decide if I would continue buying from them again or not, especially if I was their regular customer before that incident.

I understand that companies have to consider that people might "claim" falsely that there was a rock in their coffee just to get free coffee
and they must weight the possibility of a scam,but on other hand they know that various foreign object do find their way into coffee
and in most cases peoples grinding gear is not damaged, but some times it is.
It would be much better to have a picture of the rock next to the bag,but regardless, as I said I would contact them not because
I'm hoping to score free bag of coffee from them, but to see how they handle such cases.

If they are nice and polite apologizing for it but not offering me free bag of coffee, that would be perfectly fine with me.
They handled it nice and polite, they pass the test.Free bag of coffee would be just nice gesture on their part and a nice bonus for me. But again this is not my main goal contacting them.
But if they were defensive and brushed me off in some unfriendly way, or ever worst didn't respond to me at all, I would stop buying from them.

I started drinking coffee at 24, noticed no real significant changes with 1 cup a day. Moving to 2 cups did make me more tired overall and feel more sluggish. Went cold turkey on it, noticed no real changes, and after a month returned to 1 cup.

Alls well.

>>9784349
I agree that coffee has it's place and does the trick with short term "energy" blast, maybe I should have mention that in my post.
But smart thing is not to drink too much of it, or not to drink on an empty stomach, or not to drink dark roast.
As with many things in life, there are not very well known or understood by majority of us secrets and aspects of coffee business, especially if we trust
dishonest greedy Coffee mongers who are withholding or even on purpose hiding truth from us the consumers.

I had a problem with a coffee from my percolator.

This allowed me to transform bitter cup of tar into a cup of strong coffee with kind of like chocolate flavour.

Grind consistency is one of the most important things, if not the most important thing that goes into making good coffee.

It's not correct to say that it burns, water can't burn coffee. The over extraction is what leads to bitterness.
The only time you'll have burnt coffee is if it's roasted too long.

I think I'm replying to bait, but no, a consistent grind is necessary for proper extraction. Ideal consistency = uniform size of coffee grounds = no fines. Fines will lead to over extraction.
Sifting out fines will make your ground coffee more consistent in particle size which will lead to better extraction.

hey espresso gurus, what do you all make of this: buy local fresh roast beans on the day the shop typically puts out the new stuff (monday). get home grind it at my usual setting (2S on my Vario). My machine chokes on pull. Dial it down even further to troubleshoot. No dice (even brought it down as to 4M just to try), still chokes. I figure the beans aren't rested enough, so leave em for a week. Just tried another pull at 2S and it's the same shit. Bad batch? (they sell me old stock or what?). For reference I have another bag of my usual go-to which pulls in the 2S range just fine (20g in 30s pull 50g out)

BaristaHustle test of the extraction of fines: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZ3_dmKARem/

My own tests comparing the Fuji R-440 (lalmost no fines) and Bunnzilla (more, but not excessive fines), also favor the Bunnzilla.

In fact, my best brews to date have been achieved by getting my main particle size as close to dust as possible in order to reduce variance. I usually stick to something more normal as this method caps out at like 10g in to 150g out because it tends to stall past that. Still, I can get delicious brews with 25-26% exty this way. Normally it caps out around 24% before getting astringent.

Multiply that by six for my primary grinder. Still, when I'm recommending gear to other less crazy people it's almost always an Aergrind or Feldgrind. Both right around $100 and competent enough for normies.

Actually Italian or French espresso roasts could be charred as fuck.

The rule is the lower the quality of green coffee beans the darker the roast to hide shitty flavor and shitty quality.

Exactly. Before the threads were full of lies and misconceptions about coffee.
At least now we have posts with correct scientifically supported informations about dirty secrets of the coffee industry.
Now we the customers have power to make informed choices that are much healthier for us, but of course that will bring less profits
for the greedy dishonest coffee roasting businesses and sellers.
Fuck them.

>>9816491
Here is the very wrong thing with this chart.
On the left they are stating that "..coffee consumption has reduced risk of some diseases and ailments"
How do you exactly know this.This is not scientific, this is just a pure speculation. This is just pure marketing designed big fat lie.

On the right hand side all the statements are scientifically provable.
Everything could be and it was tested in the laboratories.
Even the points where the word 'can' or 'may' is used are scientifically examined and tasted and can affect people,
some people less others more, but it was scientifically proven that it can. Chemically was proven that it is so.
So there is no speculation on the right side.

On the left is just a theoretical speculation, because you cannot examine living person and tell them that drinking coffee will do this or that for you in protecting from some illnesses or deceases.
How do you do that? How do you come to solid chemical testings that are true.
You can cut up dead person and examine their organs and connect chemically coffee to the chemical information in their organs,
but how do you do that in living person.
Total lie and brain washing for the purpose of coffee marketing.

SHOW ME SCIENTIFIC PROOF OF SINGLE POINT ON THE LEFT.
Maybe only the last point is correct, but that is chemistry between coffee and the painkillers that have secondary effect on the human body.
Try to support the other points on the left with solid scientific data. NONE. TOTAL FAKE BULLSHIT MADE UP MARKETING SCAM LIE.
