In this post, I explore the details of physical phenomena that can cause fines to migrate and clog coffee filters.
In this post I discuss recent developments in my efforts to stabilize my kettle flow rate.
In this post, I discuss the physics of extraction by percolation and immersion and how they lead to very different taste profiles.

I plan to make a better quality video eventually for my blog, but in the meantime I thought this would be interesting to a wider audience. Please view this recent post I made about what is going on with Patreon ifContinue reading “A V60 Pour Over Video”
