toward more ethiopian precision

July 1, 2005 – 3:04 am

just ordered one. the precipitating factor: total exasperation with the ethiopian’s shot consistency. slightly deceptive are the pics posted below. truth is, i’ve been through the bad, sour and just befuddling shots. while the grouphead flush has become second nature in order to bring the brew temp where i want it, i fear some stealth bad habits. thus, the thermocouple. when i can better pinpoint the temps i’m brewing at, i feel certain the confidence will be back.

foolish weekend promises: i will post pics or video of some serious riviera shots. also, a blend will develop. stick around. or, go read the sudden spurt of idea-flogging and intellectual reductionism at godshot. stellar photography, too.
