We've had a Clover machine at work, and drat that thing is a beautiful piece of machinery. It also makes a really nice cup of coffee.

However, I've now been led astray from the Clover with the most recent toy that we obtained, The Bunn Trifecta: http://coffeegeek.com/resources/noteworthy/trifecta
Dear god that thing makes an amazing cup of coffee. I've been away from work for nearly a week and I can't wait to get back to that sweet sweet coffee.

Your workplace has a Clover machine and a Trifecta? Must be either a drat fancy coffeeshop or an office with a coffee-mad CEO.

Friend wants me to reccomend him a good burr grinder under $100. Trying to remember which refurbished one is the best. Last page had some gripes about the Baratza, and the Rancillo Rocky is pricier than I remember. What else is there? Capresso Infinity? That Starbucks one? Something else that isnt a Hario hand mill?

Got to play with the Decent Coffee prototype at Portland's Coffee Fest this weekend and I have to say, those guys know what they're doing and I'm pretty excited to see the finished product. Got me thinking about upgrading our shop machine...

Wow. Had no idea what the Decent Coffee machine was, looked it up. Tech startup that uses computer control to regulate temperature/pressure without needing a boiler? Sounds like the second iteration of that PID-Espresso Machine Kickstarter that fizzled away two-three years ago. I go to check that KS page for laughs, and lo and behold!

e: Ahahaha The $300-$400 pledged to that KS now gives you a $200 off coupon for Decent Coffee's machine, which is $1,000 at the cheapest. 10/10

I'm sitting in a coffee shop, drinking a cup of pour over, and all I can hear in my head is the stoner pour talking.

I have some questions about the french press tool I've been using.

I put in 4 tablespoons of folgers. I boil my water, and pour it on top of the grounds. I let the full french press cylinder "steep" for about 1 min. before I put the top on and push the plunger down to the bottom. After that I pour my coffee. The whole process after I pour the boiling water into the cylinder lasts about 2 min.

Is that long enough for the french press to do its job and properly brew the coffee?

I maybe getting a tolerance, or I maybe just doing this wrong. But it feels like the coffee isn't really doing its job, like it might not have had long enough to brew before I drink it to activate?

Do I need to let the water/grounds steep longer before I plunge? Do I need to let the coffee brew longer post-plunging? Thank you for any help in making my morning perkier!

Normal French Press coffee steeps for around five minutes, but is also a coarser grind than usual. Assuming your Folgers is normal drip coffee grind, try 4 minutes but be prepared to adjust by 30 seconds either way to taste. Once you press it, you're done and free to pour it all. Also, how big is your coffee mug? Four tablespoons is a LOT of coffee. Usually people suggest 1-1.5 tbsp per 8oz cup

What are some of the higher quality coffee pods? I realize that's an oxymoron for the most part, but which would make a better gift?

I remember hearing good things about San Francisco Bay coffee pods, particularly their Fog Chaser dark roast. It may just have been about their gimmick (No plastic undercups, so they'll need a resealable airtight storage solution when opened)
