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.

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

Where are Coffee Prices Headed? - What are the Implications?
ciel-007
Between 2008 and 2010, coffee prices skyrocketed by 150%. In the last two years, prices have plummeted back down to their 2008 lows. This seems like an appropriate occasion for homeroasters to think about a few timely questions.

For example:
1- Have suppliers lowered prices on my bean purchases lately?
2– Should I stock-up on beans before market prices cycle upwards again?
3– Is now a good time to sell (or buy) shares in Starbucks?
4– Should I consider investing in coffee futures?
5– How are small coffee farmers in developing countries being impacted?
6– … (feel free to add some of your questions here) …

Here is a link to a stimulating article (and source of attached images), that may assist HRO members ponder similar questions over a cup of their favorite brew as they begin the New Year.

However, arabica coffee, trading at 143 cents a pound on a front-contract basis on Wednesday, will recover to average 170 cents a pound in the first quarter of 2013, and still see some upside later in the year, Rabobank said.


That's a 19% return over 3 months.
