OK, that is one side of the ledger.

Now do the other side of the ledger.

Electricity, fuel, food, medicine, transportation, clothing, protection, education, courts, sanitation...

Before this "colonization" theses people were nomads living in animals skins, barely surviving childhood only to die a few decades later, at best, of disease, famine or a warring neighbor.

They owe the White Man trillions of dollars in reparations for their benefiting from White Man's generosity.

33 What are you guys using to make your java, and what kind of java are you drinking?

I have a 1950s Pyrex percolator plus, a Bialetti and and a Cuisinart programmable coffee maker. These are supplemented with an adjustable hand grinder. The Cuisinart gets used during the week and the other two get exercised on the weekend.

Best coffee for anything other than the Bialetti is Ethiopian yergacheffe. Best stuff for the Bialetti is LaVazza Crema Gusto.

51 The Technivorm sounds technical but it's just a basket brewer. It's secret it it brews at the correct temperature and in the correct amount of time. Most coffee makers brew at too low a temperature and take too long. At least that's what I remember from an article about it.

91 My coffeemaker at home is a Braun programmable. Purchased at Bed, Bath Salts and Beyond, it was a bargain and is easy to keep clean. My first coffeemaker years ago was a Braun, and I kept it from 1986 to 1998. Some gaskets began to leak, and nobody in Denver could repair it economically. I hope this one lasts as long.

Hell, I hope *I* last that long.

103 True story of a Bunn...
Back in the early 90s, we bought out a shop down in Houston and part of the purchase included a coffee maker; the kind that plumbs into the wall. Judging from the patina on the stainless steel housing, it must have been in service for a few decades. Well we got it back to our shop and looked inside. There were more scales in the reservoir than any fish in the sea and they were about the size that you'd find on Godzilla's back.

No sweat. A little muriatic acid and a good rinse, followed by several runs with distilled vinegar and then several runs with just plain filtered water. Worked fine and last time I was in the area I stopped by to visit and that coffee maker is still in service.

FWIW, "Medium Roast" is almost always too roasted.

Most companies begin their "light", "medium", "dark" scale long after Vienna roast.

At Vienna, the "origin" of the coffee is almost gone. For blends, no one cares about origin, just coffee profiles.

OTOH, City begins at first crack and the origin slowly gives over to the taste of roast as one approaches Full City then Vienna, then French...

106 This is my coffee maker. Ground coffee put in a little strainer that is meant for tea leaves because the old coffee filter had a hole in it. It probably tastes terrible to somebody who takes their coffee preparation seriously, but has caffeine and it wakes me up so it's o.k. by me!

This is going to turn ugly real quick.

If the beans deserved respect, they wouldn't have been left over from the day before in the first place.

I will concede however, there can be times when one cannot finish all the good coffee one makes. At those times, find a better solution, perhaps akin to the disposal of a damaged and retired U.S. flag.

We have a small house and having a quiet dishwasher means we're now able to hear ourselves think, unlike what we dealt with with the old DW.

Worst I've experienced so far is all the idiot drivers who seem to slow down when the river comes in view, gawking at its swelled levels and disappeared banks...

I guess that the doohicky Milady uses to make her coffee every morning. Too much fuss and bother for me, but it smells great, so I smell her coffee and drink mine. (Sometimes I steal a shot of hers into my cup.)

I'd thought sometimes of pouring the pot back through the filter a 2nd time, but I figure that really wouldn't work and would probably be some kind of disaster.

177 That civet cat coffee is the biggest ripoff.

I tried some when it first hit our market. It was very good, but not worth the price... I wrote it off as a novelty.

But it became a status symbol for rich, pinchfaced Manhattan society women, and demand quickly outstripped supply because

1.) It's harvested from the shit of wild civets

2.) who will ONLY eat the best cherries of the native coffee, which is very good to begin with.

Well, once Susan Olivia Cuthbertson Klein and her friends just HAD to have it, the Indonesians started capturing and breeding civets, and force-feeding them seriously cheeeeap, inferior coffee cherries.

Net effect: totally unremarkable coffee that costs $150/lb.

Shhhh... nobody tell Susan.

If somebody calls me when I'm driving, or if I have to make a call, I'll pull over to a parking lot and use the phone if the call can't wait. It's not like you'll miss a call; if someone calls you and leaves a voice mail, of even if he doesn't, you have he number to call him back.

180 Has anyone try those cold brew coffee products I see on the dairy aisle at grocery store?

Just cold-brew for yourself.

One can literally take the crap coffee that comes in those large metal tins and cold brew a respectable cup from it.

Cold brew is like magic in that no matter how bad the bean, goodness can still result. (Cold brewing a dark roast form Tibor right now)

I do that for any over roasts that I do. Over roasts can occur when I'm using a different bean and size, and I refuse to drink Vienna or French. I don't care for the taste of "roast".

190 It tends to be very strong and intensely caffeinated but It's smooth, very flavorful and low acid.

If you want to have more caffeine, it isn't in the extraction, it begins in the bean itself. Choose a Robusto bean over the Arabica or Geisha.

Cold brew works well on Robusto because cold brew is magic on awful beans.

196 A few years ago, I went to the Dominican Republic to get some training and everywhere I went I had great coffee. Even from the beat up old office coffee pot.

It was all the same coffee.

"Santo Domingo Coffee" - which is a medium roast.

The Dominicans don't have much to be proud about but they are justly proud of this coffee.

You can buy it on Amazon for the same price or cheaper than you can buy Starubucks.

Give it a whirl.


Also , on Amazon(and elsewhere,) also a great coffee, is-

"Illy Caffe Coffee Drip Dark Roast"

Great rich flavor, though it's expensive. And they make several grinds for different types of coffee makers.

202 French Press filters are too coarse, and allow too much sediment into the coffee. It is a heathen method, as evidenced by the name.

Spoken by a true infidel.

French press is the difference between coffee being a drink and coffee being a food.

The paper filters remove not only the chunks, but the oils. The oils are what give body to the beverage.

If you don't like sediment in your French roast, then buy a better grinder or go drink Diet Coke.

204 During the Civil War, soldiers would use the butts of their rifles to grind coffee in the morning. The officers were concerned about the noise they were making. So the army ordered ground coffee from their suppliers. They could never get the suppliers to stop adulterating the coffee by adding chickory (a cheap substitute). War profiteering from 150 years ago.

237 From the Second City Cop blog:

Arguing that prison sentences historically have "not done anything to curb Chicago's tidal wave of aldermanic corruption cases," Willie Cochran's lawyer asked a judge Thursday not to put the latest convicted ex-City Council member behind bars.

Attorney Christopher T. Grohman instead asked for probation with six months of home confinement for the 67-year-old former 20th Ward alderman, insisting that Cochran's crime does not count as a typical public corruption case.

To make his argument, Grohman pointed to a list published by the Chicago Sun-Times of 35 aldermen convicted since the early 1970s. He also made reference to last week's indictment of 14th Ward Ald. Edward M. Burke on racketeering and bribery charges - a case former 25th Ward Ald. Danny Solis helped build by wearing a wire for the feds.


This is the political system that nurtured and pushed Obama to national prominence.

I will admit to being smitten, having been to New Orleans, in the Cafe Du Monde, drinking their coffee and eating their funnel cakes (oops, I meant beignets), and thinking it was the most wonderful coffee in the world...

But every attempt to rediscover the taste was bound to fail, because most of it, I am convinced, was mind over matter.

Ahem.

The United States is the number one destabilizing agent in all hemispheres and any attempt by the US to label any other nation as such must account for decades of intervention that lead to our current immigration fiasco: thousands fleeing the places the US destabilized.

The world would be a peaceful, paradisiac place, if not for that icky United States, which is responsible for all evil in the world. Open borders are just another form of reparations to atone for our sins.

Thermal carafe is good, nothing worse than boiling out the coffee; plus steam from a hot plate carafe will go back up into the coffee filter, condense and then drip back into the carafe bringing in nothing but bitterness.

The temperature thing is a bit overrated, but does have an influence on the final product. If you have the money...

Extraction plays a large role. Even extraction is required where the heated water hits the ground AND as it sinks through the grinds. I don't know what technology Technivorm is using, but it is probably far better than a Mr Coffee that sort of dribbles out the condensing boiled water from a plastic spout...

333 Gibson's Bakery vs Oberlin College

Someone on Legal Insurrection posted an interesting letter from the trustees of Oberlin about Oberlin's long-term financial problems.

I went to a liberal arts college like Oberlin, which currently charges half of its students full tuition, and gives half of its students tuition discounts, averaging half tuition. (Hint: if you pay full tuition to this institution, you are a mark.) I bet Oberlin is similar.

Oberlin had a serious recruiting shortfall, which led to a significant deficit. They fixed the shortfall, but they were successful in recruiting people who get the tuition discounts, not the people paying full freight, so that didn't help Oberlin's financial situation very much.

Long-term, the trustees are worried that the supply of marks willing to pay north of a quarter-million dollars for an Oberlin education may be drying up. (Particularly since you would have to be insane to send your son to a left-wing college with sexual kangaroo courts.)

Well, Oberlin still has a few hundred million dollars in endowment to burn through...

I think it's Trump's way of helping them save face.

They know he can do the tariff anyway if they decide to engender his mighty orange wrath.

And I'd bet at least a plugged nickel they also brought up the dread "R" word during these negotiations... Trump could topple what's left of the Mexican State in a couple of months if he cuts off the remittances along with a tariff.

They know it. We know it.

Thanks to decades of piss-poor leadership on both sides of the border, Mexico is prostrate. Any President who wanted to could make them our bitch.

363 So I'm starting to see some daylight between Deep State Collusion for Hillary and what the "Intelligence Community" did against Trump.

It's starting to look to me that this is *mostly* CYA for the biggest IC fuckup in history: the hole in not detecting Hillary's private server and taking steps.

Thus what we might see here is not necessarily a hyperpartisan IC, but an IC that made a deal with the projected Clinton administration on their mutual motivation to not expose what a security hole Hillary's private server had been.

All the 302 and evidence destruction seems to have a common theme of covering up how much intelligence damage had been done by the server.

And I think that's why the IC has been trying to push meetings with Russian lawyers as some sort of unquestionable high treason, the information coming out is that they have been selling over one-time IC assets as "Russian contacts", such as Page, Mifsud, and Kilimnik. After all, they're lying about something that the general public doesn't have a "need to know".

At this point, I think the IC wants something drastic or momentous to happen to turn the attention to Trump and make the rest of it go away.

It is not the be all but a a good starting point for people who likely never heard there was a D Day. It is sad there are so few vets left. I happened to be in London and Paris on the 50th, those guys were all over that place and were treated like rock stars.

395 You pour hot water over grounds, after a while you push the filter down over it. It requires zero expertise.

Depends if you don't care about the resulting product.

A good grinder gives uniform grounds (and less dust). Then you need to decide on how long to let the grounds (how much) be exposed to the hot water (and what temperature) so that the coffee is not under or over extracted.

Actually, the homeless problem is a great example of the power of economic incentives. Even drug-addled homeless people can figure out how to migrate to the cities where they will receive maximum benefits. (In Portland, the homeless migration is even seasonal, since winters in Portland are less pleasant than in California.)

In Portland, you get abundant homeless services, free needles, and a lack of law enforcement directed at junkies and meth heads.

You don't get that in Boise.
