Basic internet etiquette. Never read the article. Disagree with everyone. You are always right. Everyone else is always wrong etc.

I’m using my moka pot on an induction stove that goes from 1 to 9, and there’s also a P setting for max power. Normally, I just use P or 9 to make the water boiling hot. Then I leave it at zero and assmble the whole pot. After that, I set it to 2, and wait. Letting the water cool down just a little at zero heat is important. If you keep the stove at 2 while assembling the moka pot, you’ll get the water flowing way too fast, and you’ll get under extracted weak coffee.

There’s a reason for doing it this way. If you heat the water with number 2 power, it’s going to take way too long. If you give it more heat, it will obviously heat up faster, but it will also increase the flow way too much. On top of that, you’ll also get steam running through the grinds, and that tends to bring out all the bitter notes very quickly. Therefore, doing the extraction at the lowest heat possible is the way to go. Since the moka pot doesn’t have a pressure gauge, it’s very difficult to tell when would be the ideal time to reduce the power. In order to avoid that problem, I recommend boiling the water before assembly.

I’ve only used a steel moka pot. How is it easier than one made of aluminium?

That flag worship thing always seemed like a weird cult thing to me. I suppose Americans might not see it that way since they grew up with it.

[–] [email protected] 5 points 2 days ago

Very sneaky! So basically some people have found an exploit in this game. Are the devs going to patch it any time soon? If not, this could become the next meta.

How about Nextcloud? If that works, you could host Nextcloud on that computer and use that for booting another computer. Better yet, you could make several layers of bootception that way. Here’s how. Computer A runs whatever distro + Nextcloud and hosts an Arch image. Computer B uses that image to boot up only to run Nextcloud and another image of Arch. Then computer C uses the image hosted on B that and so on. If you want to aim for the next level circular bootception, you make computer A use the image hosted on computer Z.

It’s a misleading name.

Normally the current collector is always coated in something such as lithium, carbon or something else. In this case, the anode has just the current collector, and nothing else. That’s why it’s not actually called an anode, even though you can connect it to an external circuit. When you charge the battery, you will get the familiar anode anyway.

Haven’t done a lot of pour over coffee, so my ideas might be inaccurate in that regard. I still use a moka pot from time to time, and have experimented with that enough to compare these methods to some extent. However, the AeroPress is my main method of choice.

control

Based on what I’ve observed, I think the key feature of an AeroPress is control. You can use any grind size, any extraction time, and any temperature below boiling. None of these variables are tied to one another in any way. With other methods, they are tied, so you will find yourself using one variable to control another, which isn’t ideal.

grind size and extraction time

With a pour over, you have to make the grind size big enough, or your paper will clog up. Clogged up paper will result in a long extraction time, which might not be what you want, so in a pour over you are essentially using grind size to put some limits to the extraction time. You can use coarse grind and pour very slowly to have more control over the result, but you can’t use fine grind and expect to have the same amount of control. Besides, pouring extremely slowly isn’t for everyone. With the AP, fine grind isn’t a problem, because you’ll be using the piston to push the water through the paper. Even if the paper is totally clogged up, because you used super fine Turkish grind, you can just push the water through anyway.

yield

Pour over method is still worth considering, because it allows you to irrigate the grinds with fresh water all the time, which maintains a high rate of extraction. However, you can also push that too far, which will result in bitter coffee. With the AP, it’s harder to screw up like that, because the grinds are constantly in contact with the water. Once enough has been extracted to the water, extraction rate will naturally slow down. That makes AP a more forgiving method. However, if you really want to maximize yield, pour over might be better for you.

temperature

Pour over and AP allow you to use whatever temperature you prefer, but the moka pot doesn’t. When the water is hot enough to produce steam, the pressure will begin to push the water through the grinds. High temperatures like that are good for efficient extraction, but they are also dangerously close to producing bitter coffee. It’s very easy to screw it up with the moka pot, whereas pour over and AP are far more forgiving in this regard.

strong coffee

I have never tried to make extra strong coffee with the pour over method, so I don’t really know how well that would work out. The moka pot and AP are really good at making strong coffee, although they can also be used for making normal strength as well. In this regard, they are quite flexible.

number of drinkers

The AP and moka pot have volume limitations, whereas a pour over allows you to just pour more and continue extracting. The AP is also ideal for making one normal cup at a time, but it can also be used for making 3-4 cups of strong coffee. The same philosophy also applies to the moka pot. Ideally, you would load the basket full and fill the water reservoir to make several cups of strong coffee - that’s what it’s designed to do. However, you can use less grinds to make normal coffee for a smaller number of people. The AP also allows you to make tiny experimental batches. This is really good if you want to compare different types of coffee, but you don’t want to drink too many cups. With the inverted method, you can easily make 100 ml batches instead and compare those with each other.

It seems that the older models had a problem that was fixed. So, the tip needs to be tweakws a bit.

If you have an older model, store the pieces separately in order to prevent the rubber from being under constant compression. If you have a newer model, push the piston all the way in until the end of the piston pops out the other end. Oh, and that is only possible if the cap isn’t screwed on. That piece needs to be stored separately anyway.

Interesting. I’m using the AP Go, so maybe the normal one doesn’t extend all the way through.

Edit: just checked how my normal AP works. It’s basically the same as the AP Go, but I guess this is a fairly new model, so there may have been some changes.

Are you using an older version?

[–] [email protected] 1 points 1 week ago

Pretty much the same with an AeroPress.

[–] [email protected] 1 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago) (5 children)

Just push the piston all the way in, and the rubber clicks when it comes out the other end of the cylinder. This way you can store it in a compact package.

If you're not quite sure about getting into coffee, you can get started with a small budget, and you can make a nice cup of coffee that way. Probabaly not a great cup, but a cup of coffee you'll find enjoyable at the time. Once you start experimenting with different variables and digging a bit deeper into different flavors, you may notice that you're not getting the same cup every time. That's when you start pushing the limit of what's possible with the equipment you have available, and you'll realize that using a cheap grinder is sort of like making you play this game in the hard mode.

Examples: Using a cheap blender type grinder (blade grinder) means you can easily chop coffee to some unknown random particle size. You don’t pay much, but at least you can use recently roasted whole bean coffee, which is great. If you want to adjust the particle size in a specific way, that’s when it gets very tricky. Did you grind one second longer than last time? Too bad, now it’s way too fine and you’re getting a bitter cup as a result. Fortunately, you can easily fix that with milk, but as you start noticing more details in the taste profile, you start demanding more and more. Consequently, fixing mistakes with milk won’t be as appealing as it once was.

Using a cheap hand grinder is a lot better than an electric blender. Once you set the screw at a specific position, you’ll get the same particle size every time, which is great for consistency. What if you decide to use a french press today, but tomorrow you want to switch back to pour over, moka pot or AeroPress? Too bad, the grinder has no markings on it, so you’ll just have to eye-ball the setting and hope for the best. That’s obviously easier than timing your blender perfectly every time, but it’s still not exactly easy to get great results.

The solution: Eventually you’ll want to buy a burr grinder (electric or manual) with clear markings for different grind sizes.

When to invest? Don’t spend any more money on better gear until you’ve already “needed” better gear a few times in order to fix something you’ve noticed in your cup. As long as you’re relatively happy with your current gear and the cup it produces, there’s no need to spend more on this hobby. However, when you start noticing new things, that’s the right time to buy something that really addresses a specific thing you have in mind.

Summary: Get started with cheap gear and upgrade only when you think it’s necessary. Getting some random cup of coffee using cheap gear is easy, but getting a specific kind of cup with that gear is hard. Using more expensive gear will make it easier.

Something else? This is based on my personal experiences, and your experiences may differ. This rule of thumb might apply to grinders, but it is not guaranteed to apply to other types of equipment. For instance, I don’t own an espresso machine, so I have no idea how price is reflected on the end result in that case.

Can we please just use a space for thousands and something else for decimals? Use a comma, point, hedgehog emoji 🦔 or whatever happens to be traditional in your country, but please make sure it will never ever be confused with a thousands separator.

 

Yksityisyyden vuoksi olen muutellut tarinasta yhtä sun toista. Oletetaan, että asun vaikka Espoossa, ja sukulaisia asuu Kittilässä.

Lähdin sukulaisreissulle Kittilään, ja vietän siellä aikaa noin kuukauden verran. Siellä ollessani päätin tilata sukulaiselle yhden jutun Ranskasta. Ajattelin, että vaikka paketin toimittamiseen meneekin yli viikko, olen vielä silloin Kittilässä vastaanottamassa, joten kaiken pitäisi toimia ihan hyvin. Ilmoitin tilaukseen omat maksutietoni, mutta pistin toimitusosoitteeksi sukulaiseni osoitteen. Viime viikolla Ranskalainen firma ilmoitti, että paketti on lähtenyt postiin ja kaikki näytti hyvältä. Äsken lähetys ilmaantui myös postin kännykkäohjelmaan, mutta siinäpä kerrottiinkin, että paketti ei tulekaan Kittilään, vaan Espooseen!

Miten tähän päädyttiin ja kenen vika se oli? Aluksi ajattelin, että lähetyksestä vastaava firma ei taaskaan lukenut tilauksen tietoja, mutta tällä kertaa se firma ei edes saanut mitään muuta kuin tuon Kittilän osoitteen. Aamukahvia hörpiskellessä pengoin kaikki mahdolliset tiedot tilauksesta ja hoksasin että Postilla on yksi aika jännä käytäntö.

”Viemme paketit valitsemaasi Omaan noutopisteeseen, jos

  • et ole valinnut verkkokaupassa noutopistettä, vaan olet tilannut katuosoitteeseen ja
  • olet antanut puhelinnumerosi tilauksen yhteydessä.”

Toden totta, ihan kaikki ehdot täyttyivät, ja nyt paketti on matkalla aivan eri paikkaan kuin mihin sen halusin.

  1. Olen määritellyt oman noutopisteen, koska Espoossa ollessani haluan paketit aina tiettyyn paikkaan.
  2. Ranskalainen verkkokauppa ei tiedä mitään suomalaisista noutopisteistä, joten sellaista ei voinut valita siinä vaiheessa ollenkaan.
  3. Tilasin sen Kittilässä olevaan katuosoitteeseen, koska siellähän vastaanottajakin on.
  4. Annoin oman puhelinnumeroni tilauksen yhteydessä, jotta sitä kautta voin seurata missä mennään. Näin jälkeenpäin ajateltuna olisi kai pitänyt laittaa sukulaisen numero tähän.

Oletettavastikin Ranskalainen pakettifirama vielä liimasi pakettiin ihan oikean osoitetarran, mutta kun looda saapui Suomen rajan yli, Posti vetikin siitä aivan uudet johtopäätökset. Kun siinä kerran on minun puhelinnumeroni, posti totesi, että sitä numeroa vastaava noutopiste on määritetty, joten katuosoite voidaan unohtaa kokonaan, ja paketti meneekin siis aikaisemmin määriteltyyn noutopisteeseen.

Paketti saapuu pian Espooseen, ja tulee viemään siellä automaatista tilaa muilta lähetyksiltä. Sitä säilytetään kai jotain viikon verran, mutta siinä vaiheessa minä olen kuitenkin vielä Kittilässä, joten tuokaan pelivara ei lohduta.

Paketin toimitusosoitetta voi vaihtaa lennosta, mutta vain lähettäjä voi tehdä semmoisen tempun; ei vastaanottaja. Paketille voi teoriasssa ostaa lisää säilytysaikaa, mutta en ole löytänyt sellaista vaihtoehtoa vielä mistään. Minun tapauksessani sitä pitäisi kai ostaa ainakin 2 viikkoa lisää. Maanantaina pitää ottaa yhteyttä asiakaspalveluun, niin nähdään miten tämä sekasotku korjataan. Eipä olisi arvannut, että yhden paketin tilaaminen menisi näin monimutkaiseksi.

 

In my case, there are 95 packages that depend on zlib, so removing it is absolutely the last thing you want to do. Fortunately though, GPT also suggested refreshing the gpg keys, which did solve the update problem I was having.

You gotta be careful with that psycho!

Hopefully this is the right sub for sharing my appreciation for spiders.

I really like seeing spiders in my home, because they eat the other critters that might be trying to invade my place. There aren’t any dangerous spiders in this country, so they’re all welcome here.

Thumbs up for spiders. 👍👍

Just the other day, I encountered a relatively big spider. A little while after switching the lights off in the night, I suddenly remembered I had to do something. I got up and switched the lights back on, and that’s when I saw it. In my geographic location 2-3 cm is on the bigger end of the spectrum, but in warmer climates you would probably call it small instead. It quickly scurried away under the kitchen cupboard, so I guess that’s where it also stays during the day. I wished it good hunting.

Since it was running around, it probably isn’t the web weaving kind. The abdomen was long and the legs were relatively long, but not super long. It was difficult to to identify it any better in those conditions.
