    Coffee quote of the day

    You're just a pretentious tool if you honestly think you can taste the difference between a Mazzer Robur ground Chemex and Mr. Coffee ground Chemex.

    Make of that what you will.

    This is at the bottom of the article.

    Update (1/05): Just to prove a point to myself, I put my money (or coffee beans) where my mouth was – quite literally. I begrudgingly chewed up about 19 grams of good beans and spit them into a filter just to see if it could make decent tasting pour-over. It was great! I secretly had two other people try it and they enjoyed my cud-coffee as well. Either my digestive enzymes taste delicious or we’re all just pretentious little tarts pretending fancy grinders make coffee better.
    Does someone want to try it to prove how much of a silly bugger he sounds?

    No need. This dropkick's already proved it himself, well and truly:

    Alrighty, let’s start simple and say you want to make a French Press… Guess what? Doesn’t matter what kind of grinder you use...FP’s can handle course, half-ass grinds. So long as the beans have been decently squished and soak in water with adequate levels of calcium for an appropriate amount of time; odds are you’ll end up with a fine French Press. Note: I am a coffee snob – I’m a Portland coffee hipster. Believe me when I tell you that I have crushed appropriately roasted beans with a slab of obsidian my friend grabbed from a quarry and produced a lovely floral French Press.

    Aww, that’s no fair. I wrote the article – no one wanted to invite me to the party?

    For the record: I stand by what I said. I’m not sure if you want a chemical breakdown (TDS relative to flavor or something?) or just want to try brewing a French Press with multiple grinders. In either case, do please “prove” me wrong.

    If this Portland Hipster can make a "lovely floral French Press" by crushing the beans with a piece of obsidian stone, imagine what the Maoris could do with there green stone axes, would of been some mean as, cher, sweet as shots bro.
