Coffee Talk

I enjoyed this couple interviewing themselves about coffee, especially as their starting point was a Gaggia machine similar to the one I’ve used for a decade.

This is a particularly helpful mnemonic:

Green coffee beans are good for three years. Roasted coffee beans are good for three weeks. Ground coffee is good for three minutes. And an espresso shot should be drunk in 30 seconds.

While not advocating for bad coffee, I'm grateful that the intense feeling of how many things need to be done has faded over time.

Thanks for this link, Peter. You've sent me down a rabbithole of home coffeemaking techniques that I haven't tried before.
