Been doing so for several years. Worth it I think.
Like these?I live a mile from Stumptown Coffee Roasters, and get beans that were roasted within a few days of purchase, so I have little motivation to do my own. When I brew a pot of coffee it is with a Technivorm, butt mostly I make Americanos with a lever La Pavoni. The beans get ground as needed in a Kitchenade ProLine with Mazzer Mini burrs. Yum!!
I think it's the best home roaster on the market. One of the best things about it is the support Joe Behm gives to his roaster. If you're having difficulties, he'll work with you to resolve them.You've all inspired me to get into home roasting! What do you think of the Behmor 1600?
It can actually get worse, I cannot drink coffee out anymore at all! Some of the best restaurants in NYC serve the worst most insipid coffee. Whats up with that?I have worked in a kitchen for over 15 years and NEVER (ok maybe twice) drank coffee unltil about 2 years ago. Now I'm becoming a coffee snob as I find myself turned off by more and more "lower class" coffee. I am afraid to look into this thread any further, I can barely afford the knife hobby these guys push around here!
Unfortunately there's truth to that, even the venerable Mr. Keller just got away from using espresso PODS quite recently.That's the awful truth, the best chefs know nothing about coffee. Maybe there are some exceptions, but we sold some of our worst coffee to famous restaurants.
