Anyways if you’re dropping money on an Encore you should go ahead and get the gooseneck and scale. Scales can be gotten for pretty cheap in my opinion, you don’t have to get an Acaia or something. I use the Kalita wave for my pourovers right now and love it.

the question is, how do you guys have the energy and focus to go through these routines in the morning before coffee?

seems like a real catch-22

i've been using a scrump pour-over setup my whole life (it's what my parents used) and every morning i tell myself i'm gonna pour carefully. then about 30 seconds in i give up and dump a bunch of water over the grounds.

there is a noticeable taste difference with a good pour however, even with mediocre grounds.

if you're not drinking a can of cold brew in the shower in the morning, we simply live in different worlds

I've ordered a lot from them over the past few years but I feel like the quality isn't always great. You get what you pay for basically, prices and shipping are cheap.

Any particular recommendations? I have only tried a couple so far. The Guatemalan is my keeper so far.

look honestly it's one of the best routine choices i've ever made

i used to spend like 30-60 mins in vague caffeine headache land and i was always oversleeping and not having time to make coffee so i'd wander down to the coffee shop near work and spend 4 dollars on an iced coffee i could drink really fast while watchign the clock above the CVS across the street wind down way too quickly

now i just pop out of bed and read a book for half an hour and then mosey mellowly over to work

The Renegade Guatemala was my go-to but last batch I got was not good. I love medium roasts with chocolate notes and that usually is the ticket.

For their lighter, more expensive roasts I really like the Costa Rican honey process when they have it. But I'm partial to Central American coffee!

They sell 2oz sample packs for a lot of their stuff. Which is awesome if you want to try a bunch of different stuff.

We have the Beautiful Burundi now and it's not very good. I also tend to like Central American coffee the best.

You should check out Nagadi Coffee in Silver Spring. They only open to the public on Saturday mornings but the beans are great and the dorks who run the place make killer espresso. If I was a single cup brewer, I would rarely look elsewhere for beans.

This is the single best coffee preparation I've ever had: https://bluebottlecoffee.com/preparatio ... s/nel-drip

I wish I was rich enough to afford making this every day.
