The motor on my expensive metal Infinity grinder gave out and it's quite frustrating. I guess I have used it daily for like 5 years, but still would have expected more durability

I think the process is a real thing but I don't know if it's actually proven to improve the coffee? But I feel like it's definitely worth trying it while fresh if you've got a free bag. Mostly I see it sold in upscale department store food halls here in tiny packs.

My mom came over last year and like kept going on about how she needed a nutribullet for her diet to the extent that she bought one and left it with us....anyway it also works as a dope coffee grinder!

And yeah that civet stuff may be for rubes but I'd never heard of it and it was a gift so.

We use the nutribullet for other stuff too but the two bladed one grinds them up pretty fine.. honestly don't get the incredulousness but gotta incredge something I guess

edit: I love to overshare so here's our nutribullet ground coffee:

A purpose built machine would make it finer but for our purposes it's great

i still contend the grinding shit is the biggest nonsense in the coffee game

freshly ground coffee is probably the most important factor

and i say that as someone who drinks plenty of pre-ground stuff

i dont follow why you think this would be true. all the flavor compounds are delicate and begin to rapidly oxidize and decay once introduced to air (similar to wine). obviously if youre grinding stale beans its not going to make much of a difference, but youre definitely going to accelerate the process by grinding more than an hour or so before you intend on using them. theres lots of oils that will dry out once you pulverize it into a powder. also it goes without saying that different grinds suit different techniques better, so not sure why you wouldnt want to control that yourself.

do you even live in brooklyn???

I'm honestly not all that impressed by the coffee in Brooklyn there I said it

That said, I wasn't saying grind all your beans, the nonsense I was referring to was machine versus Burr by hand, etc. It doesn't matter that much

Burr grinder is the best upgrade you can get. The new cheap OXO is fine, and I like my Capresso.

any Toddy Boys in here? i went to re-up on filters and found these new giant filter bags:

https://www.amazon.com/Toddy-THMPF20-Fi ... filter+bag

just brewed first batch. great improvement to process. you can mix all the coffee and all the water together at once vs. the water/coffee/water/coffee/wait 5 mins/water layering. it brews slightly more efficiently and then you just toss the bag no mess of cleaning out brewing container.

worth it if you brew regularly. i try to do every sunday which gets me through the week. the concentrate actually makes a solid cup of hot coffee too. love a Toddy.

we used to do the toddy method for iced coffee at my coffee shop. it was a good method, iirc, you can also do it for tea.

My kids bought this for me and my wife for Christmas.
A rapid cold brew maker.

Makes really tasty cold brew in 5 minutes (for weaker coffee) to 15 minutes (for concentrate).
Super thoughtful and really cool. We're enjoying the hell out of it.
