Colin,

I picked the Kopi Luwak up from our friend Lisa Rotenberg over at rocketfuelcoffee.com . I also picked up some Jamaican Blue Mountain, a favourite of mine <drooling smilie face here>, which I have used up and just received some Panama Carmen Estate that I haven't tried yet and have some of her Triple X coming my way. I don't know if she still has Kopi Luwak, you might want to drop her a note to see if she does.

Now you know why I wanted to cry when I made it up and it was weak. I mean if it was too strong you can put a little hot water in it. Not the best solution, but you certainly can't fix weak. :blush:

I'll be picking up that scale pretty quick.

Cheers, Guy :side:

I will check the session times on posting here.

Do yourself a favor folks and COMPOSE your thoughts off-line.

Typing and typing and typing often leads to a session time out
and all your ideas lost.

Gnashing of teeth may result.

So ............. one year and two months ago I mentioned that I was going to be picking up a kitchen scale to measure out my coffee and what not. Well, it only took me a year and two months. That might be considered to be pretty good for me. Then again, maybe not. :laugh:

Anyhow, I finally picked up a kitchen scale. And I figured I might as well use it for something good. I checked out what would be the right coffee to water for my coffee press. What did I find, do you ask? A couple of sources use 60 to 70 grams of coffee to one litre of water. Ok. Not a problem. I have a scale now. I can measure that out.

Holy sh**!!!! :ohmy: I had no idea how much coffee that really is. In all honesty, it's about twice as much as I regularly use in my coffee press. I was using 2 level tablespoons per 6 ounces of water. That would give me about 10 level tablespoons for my 32 ounce / 1 liter coffee press. I can tell you that 10 level tablespoons isn't close to 60 to 70 grams of coffee.

The Kona coffee I made this morning was literally rocketfuel. I had to try it the way it was suggested. I mean, the guys/gals at Square Mile aren't wrong about this sort of thing ... are they? I did find similar coffee to water ratios from other sources.

But, jeez ... wow!!! :dry: That's some powerful coffee it made. :blink:

So here's my query, what do you all measure out on a scale for your coffee? Press would be nice for a more direct comparison, but I'm good to compare with any coffee to water ratio you're finding that works our really well.

Lemme know.
