    Coffee

    Tried this morning, pretty good results! Definitely makes a stronger brew, which I like. And very aromatic. No kettle with variable temp so just left boiling water in a mug to sit for about 6 mins. Used about 30g of beans. Grounds filled up to one numbered notch of the aeropress to 1.5 numbered notches. 3 minute brew time. Need to invest in travel scales and a camping mug.

    The rabbithole of aeropress begins; with add on kit Coincidentally I did 7 clicks on the porlex; just by approximation.

    Coffee

    I have to endure some air travel during this pandemic nonsense; and weeks in quarantine. So I started looking for a way to bring coffee along with me. Most roads led to the aeropress as the ultimate ‘on the go’ solution for camping and such. So far I’ve brewed maybe 5-6 cups using the aeropress. Results have varied from average to passable but probably due to technique. My last two cups were quite enjoyable. I find the caffeine content to be lower than stovetop and even frenchpress, probably due to the fast brew times. So I can easily have two cups made from about 30g of beans (when I use my usual Bialetti; 30 grams is more than enough caffeine for the whole day). Quite impressed with the press given its such a simple and portable device. Although I find it abit finicky now, it should go away I use it more and hone the variables. Cup and teaspoon are the hotel’s. The porlex grinder fits nicely into the cavity of the aeropress for easy transport.

    Very nice. JT empire strengthens. Hifi music streaming services like Tidal are another avenue of getting more enjoyment out of a capable hifi setup.

    Keep your spirits up during the lockdown gents! @Jeremy- Wow the world of hifi can easily exceed prices of sky dwellers / pateks. Have you gone to gold wire yet? During the 4-5 month lockdown in Victoria around July last year, I also installed a basic and modest 5.1 system with faux Dolby Atmos 7.1 capability (my front has some upward angled drivers, but I dont have any ceiling speakers). I’m thoroughly enjoyjng listening to music almost every evening. I’m also rewatching my favourite films just to experience them again with a competent sound system. I love sci-fi, which is super enjoyable to watch in surround. Bladerunner, Tron Legacy, Alita, Star Wars. LOtR is also a great watch with proper sound (Balrog scene!).

    No. A local fine shoe retailer in Melbourne. The Alden ppl appreciate your compliment jajaja. More pics work in progress. Pyjamas (i.e. my work from home attire) don't make for very impactful / #menswear quality pics.

    All these sale events encouraging thoughtless consumption, terrible really. On the flipside, support local businesses and all that. Alden Indy in snuff suede.
