A Kalita Wave 185 (the bigger one), a bag of filters, and a JavaPresse is all you need. Others will disagree but they are all just wacko over caffeinated coffee drinkers Filtered or unfiltered, a question for the ages.
I weigh the beans, load the grinder and add appropriate water.
I went through a fair amount of options from aeropress to pour over. Kind of like my audio these days I don’t want to fiddle with many things but I do want consistent, amazing results. I have landed on a Techivorm with Baratza Encore grinder. I weigh the beans, load the grinder and add appropriate water. Follow the cupping standards. Perfect every time with very little fuss. All other methods, although intriguing, provided results inconsistent and labor intensive. During the week I don’t have the time to mess around with overly manual methods. The older I get the more I purchase quality items which will stand up over time. If you are one who likes to play and has the patience then coffee is yet another playground.
Is there a big difference in weight vs. volume between bean types? I put two heaping tablespoons of beans in the grinder and call it done.Since I do a pour over, the Kalita Wave sits perfectly on top of a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup (pre-heated of course), when I get to10 oz. I stop adding water. The last drips get me to 12 oz.
That's what I got my parents, it's a good solution. Quality espresso machines are very consistent and quick to use, it only takes a few minutes to make a drink once you get the process down. What did me in was trying a good espresso machine vs the other methods using the same exact beans. It's not cheap to get into but my only regret is not doing it sooner.
