Good article be Marco Arment, a coffee enthusiast himself:
Throwing K-Cups In Glass Houses
My thoughts on this
- Due to being a hoboCEO, I have a given limitation to my coffee equipment. I appreciate the restrictions of my mobility though. Here’s what I carry around: AeroPress with a re-usable metal filter, a coffee bean grinder, a scale, a thermometer , a milk frother.
- My set cost less than $ 100 and has already help me and friends, who “want to try”, brew a couple hundred cups of fine coffee. Most of the equipment can easily and, again inexpensively, be replaced almost anywhere.
- High quality and aptly roasted coffee beans make the most difference, I agree.
- Fixing myself a cup of coffee takes up to 10 minutes. I enjoy the process as part of my morning routine / getting up or an afternoon work break. I don’t like or need to rush it.
- Not being able to just push a button to fill my cup with more caffeine juice keeps my consumption fairly low (most times 2 cups per day) and partly because of that I consciously enjoy – savor – each cup to the last drop.
