Well, I’ve been noticing some inbound links sourcing from a cigar aficionado’s site. While I don’t smoke, it’s great that there’s a niche blog/community for all the exquisite enjoyments of life. One thing I did notice while perusing the thread was this page, “The Coffee Directory”. From a quick perusal, it looks quite exhaustive. Probably will become a staple link source for me in the future.
This morning, I returned my the kitchen, faced with a different bean choice in my ratio searching. The selection today: Costa Rica La Horqueta “Top 50, rested three or four days, roasted to a City+, I believe. While I still don’t have much of a taster, it was nice. The body of a 8 Tasse FP, brewed for 2.5-3 minutes with 44g of beans seems much more present and pleasant to me. Still plan on revisiting the Kinunu Bourbon with the experiments mentioned earlier. We’ll see what it’s like.
Finally, I plead to the HR list for help yesterday. My trusty Zass Knee Mill developed an issue earlier this week. Pictures here. As you can see, the knob separated from the grinding arm. It can go back on, but not reliably. So, the proposed solutions are threefold:
1. Replace with a threaded bolt/screw at tap the arm to accept the threads. Can do. Thanks, homeroaster!
2. Replace with a drawer pull from a hardware shop. Can do, if I can find something I like. Thanks SCCR!
3. The most adventurous. File the shaft of the ‘screw’ smooth, drill a small hole and tap. Introduce a 10-32 screw to the underside for holding. Must figure a jig for this, but could do. Thanks PZ.
So, this weekend may find me on the maiden voyage to our brand, spankin’ new Lowe’s for a knob. Who knows?
Solo Deo Gloria,
