I have been trying Scott Rao Hario V60 pourover this week. 1:17 and blooming with 2 parts water the first 45 seconds then splitting the rest into 2 pours. A little stirring is included. We like it.

03/04/2021 11:35 AM
My brew ratio is 1:17 (exactly 59.5 g/L). That's roughly 8.5g per 5-oz cup.

I'm looking to hire someone to teach/help me to find the best roast profile for the 3 types of coffee that grow on my farm in nicaragua. I live in LA, but but could go anywhere in so cal with my Behmor for a roasting lesson. Please contact me if you're in

When your wife thinks 30 grams for a 6 cup setting is strong, you learn to drink muddy water when you are making coffee for both of you.

I use a rule of thumb of 60 grams per liter. 8 cups (1 liter, 32 oz) = 60 grams, 6 cups (3/4 liter, 24 oz) = 45 grams. 10 cups = 75 grams 12 cups = 90 grams

Flooding Water Everywhere QLD Aust
Koffee Kosmo
My City and the whole State of Queensland Australia is under siege from flooding

By 3 pm Wednesday 12th/Jan/2011 local time my home in Brisbane may be under water the river has already broken its banks as of an hour ago

Based on the last major flood in Brisbane of 1974 if the water level reaches that level we will lave an instant lake on our from doorstep
If the water level exceeds the 1974 level we will go under

This is due in part from dams at 200% capacity and king tides from the bay & ocean acting against each other making an already bad situation worse

So if you don't hear from me for a while you will know why

Signing off for now

Just spent several hours moving items to the highest part of the house
Had a sports drink
Got straight to it again and filled about 40 sand bags to seal the front door
Will keep a watch on the water if it comes up so I can move the car to the top of the street. The first high water peak is expected in 5 hours at around 3 am

Need coffee to stay awake as my body is spent out

Sighing off for now

Still alive and dry for now
Did not rain all night which may be a blessing
Emergency sirens were sounding all night all around our area
Very little sleep and tyred

Helicopters overhead looking at affected areas

Two thirds of the state of Queensland is currently flooded and QLD is a huge state in land area

Well that's all for now just watch & wait and act quickly if we have to evacuate

I was watching some news footage earlier- it's spectacularly frightening. Stay dry KK!

This is a welcomed statement, rather than going for a swim! I know your area is hurting, but we're glad to hear you are keeping your head up.

I am glad to say that I am alive and well
My house was spared however in an adjoining street some 12 homes were affected

However just in my suburb I would guess that over 1000 homes were affected

Just to paint a picture of the city topography
The river is snake shaped with many U shaped sections not all are low lying
We live in one of those sections at about mid height

We have been without power / phone / internet for several days and only just restored in our street
Some worst affected sections are still without power
Streets are still not passable and detours are everywhere

Have been helping the affected neighbours over the last few days and going to work as well and I am pretty tired

That's all for now

Its also our storm season in these parts

I am proud of the assistance offered by the thousands of volunteers to affected people
Some people were devastated again as insurance companies would not honour the policy stating that it does not cover a flood event (its all in the wording)

If it was not for there willing to get dirty the city would not be such a nice place to live in

Proud as punch on one level
But bemused with some insurer's
