I’ve been a dedicated aero press guy for years. A month or so ago I decided to try out something else after hearing about these products on a podcast I listen to regularly. I have come to really like this combo for a more than one cup option.
Great tunable temp kettle.
Miroco Electric Kettle Temperature Control 1.7L Double Wall Keep Warm, Anti-scald Tea Kettle 100% Stainless Steel BPA-Free Hot Tea Kettle, Auto Shut-Off, Boil-Dry Protection, 1500W Fast Boiling-120V
This for the press. It does a great job. Keeps coffee hot for a while too.
Secura French Press Coffee Maker, 304 Grade Stainless Steel Insulated Coffee Press with 2 Extra Screens, 34oz (1 Litre), Silver
I still like the aero press but this combo is really great with coarse ground beans.
I just went through 7 pages and unless I missed it I did not see the best coffee posted.
Black Rifle Coffee Company - BRCC. Thank me later.
Those that like the chocolate notes get the Freedom Fuel. For the best medium blend get Coffee Saves or Just Black depending on your personal taste. The Just Decaf is really good as well. If you like the lighter roast, get Silencer Smooth.
BRCC is veteran owned, based in SLC, and get their beans from Brazil and Columbia. They give part of their profits back to veterans, first responder, etc. projects.
I've seen the BRCC bags on shelves at a couple of LGS in the Nashville area, but I always wonder how long they sit there. Maybe I will try. We've been ordering from Drew's Brews for awhile. I bought a roast called African Smoke from a shop called JJs that used to be on 21st Ave in Nashville. JJs closed a little while back so I started ordering directly from the roaster (Bean Central). First order, was fine. Second order, the order was screwed up and they didn't fix. Third order, the order was screwed up and the coffee tasted like a dog's ass. I think they tried some sort of quicky method to get a batch out and they didn't respond to me reporting that my order was bag light or on the taste being off. Sucks because I was an avid drinker their stuff for almost 20 years but their customer service just plain sucked.
Place large fine mesh bag in 5 gallon bucket, add a couple of inches of water, dump a 12 oz bag of ground coffee in while adding water with sprayer (to avoid dry clumps), repeat until I’ve got 6 bags of coffee and bucket almost full, put on fridge for 24 hours, and remove bag o’ coffee and put in colander sitting in large mixing bowl (to catch remaining drips to add back to bucket). Yields 4+ gallons of delicious cold brew.
I like mine with heavy cream - shaken, not stirred.
