  • Yeah, I don't buy that any sort of pod thing can taste as good as fresh ground. I know with some come with a pod that you can fill with your own coffee, so maybe that might get a little closer. But temp and brewing time is very precise to get good…

  • Not in a huge hurry, but don't want to miss a smoking deal. Also want to track sales a bit.
  • Ah, yes. I forgot about that one, thanks!

  • When I source fresh beans and grind fresh and brew at the proper temp for the proper time I get ZERO bitterness. I get bitterness if the grind is incorrect and/or the temp is off or the coffee brews for too long. It's a fine line. While I agree…

  • Since we are on the subject. I participated in my first Kickstarter campaign and it was for a "new" French Press coffee maker that makes it easier to clean up after. Called Rite-Press I haven't received the unit yet hopefully in the next couple…

  • I only drink coffee at home on the weekends except in the Summer months I make a steady supply of Iced coffee for all week. I am lucky in that my work provides great coffee we buy from a local roaster. It's pre-ground for our commercial Bunn mac…

  • I would also recommend with a drip type coffee maker to get one that brews into a insulated carafe rather than a glass pot with a warmer. If you're going to take the time to use fresh roasted, fresh ground coffee leaving it in a glass pot on a warm…

  • Use a French Press pot, you'll never go back to brewed coffee again. Use locally roasted beans so you know they are fresh and grind just before using. It's a bit of a pain to do French Press coffee, but the flavor, aroma and mouth feel of freshl…

  • Like I said, she's not at all interested in finding out. She won't take polrbehr up on his offer (just like I predicted) and she will rail against any and all attempts to try and explain why cables can sound different. The reason is because her …

  • Otherwise known as gelatin. Jell-O or Jello is a brand
  • It most certainly is a Mini-Watt knock off.
  • Jello pudding pops. Jello is a brand. It most certainly was J-E-L-L-O.
  • My point was with the jello analogy, why is it up to me to prove to you why something is preferred based on my own subjective interpretation. How is my preference (and proof of) somehow tied to your enjoyment or ability to discern a difference. …

  • When I speak of SET, I'm thinking along the lines of a 2A3, but yes, the amp in the first post is single ended not push/pull. I had an EL34 tube amp that used a single EL34 for each channel. It was single ended, but not an SET.

  • While we're at it I have this one as well. 6V6 powered and 6SL7 drivers and it also has it's own sound. This one is rated at 16wpc and the 1950's RCA gray glass, black plate 6V6's power tubes are sublime! What a tone! Leo Fender built his guitar …
  • I have one of those Dared/Fatman/HCT tube hybrid integrated amps 12-15 wpc (depending on what literature you read) with the magic eye tube. The front end is a pair of driver tubes (6N1P) and the power output is Mosfet. Rolling various ECC85/6AQ8's…

  • Her answer as to why not try it for herself, is she really doesn't care. For someone who doesn't care, she sure seems to preach about needing someone else to prove it to her. And that we don't really hear what we hear. Sounds like she cares A L…
