About me

Photo by Scott Rao

I’m a researcher in astrophysics at the Institute for Research on Exoplanets in Montreal. My daytime job consists of discovering and characterizing new young stars, brown dwarfs and exoplanets in the solar neighborhood. If you’d like to know more about this, you can head to my science web page.

Since the summer of 2018, I decided to go on a journey to perfect my pour over coffee brewing in my free time. I had been brewing sour and uneven coffee for years, and I decided to do everything I could to find reliable resources and understand the science behind coffee brewing.

This blog is my attempt to share this information with the world, and make it easier to have better pour over practices that are based in hard data and science, rather than dogma.

I recently started a Patreon account to help support this blog. Support from Patreon allows me to purchase high quality equipment like this high-accuracy bluetooth temperature logger to improve the quality of my future blog posts, which will appear here.

Patreon supporters receive advantages like early access to blog posts or Patreon-only bonus content, such as my complete log of coffee brews, Acaia brewprints, impressions for each coffee bags and roasters I tried, etc.

Here’s an example of an older Patreon behind-the-scenes post that kept my supporters informed about ongoing projects, failed attempts and more.
