I’d like to announce that I just started a Patreon page to fund laboratory equipment and make future blog posts much more awesome !
My goal is to keep valuable content freely available on my blog, but as a thank you to Patreon backers, I will make future blog posts available to them first. The model I am thinking of right now is to keep a buffer where the one most recent blog post is only visible to backers. The full details are on my Patreon page which you can find here.
Tonight I also finished writing another detailed blog post “Seasoning Grinder Burrs and Grind Quality”, which is available right now on Patreon. This post is about the seasoning of my EG-1 grinder, and it features seven precise particle size distributions at various stages of my 24 pounds seasoning, with an unexpected twist about the effect of coffee freshness on particle size distributions ! I also discuss some preliminary findings on the “quality factor”, a metric that I think will allow us to objectively compare grinders against each other.
If you do not wish to be a Patreon, rest assured that I will make another announcement when I make this blog post available to everyone right here.
