I'm reading that I should drink more coffee, because then I get to eat cake.

This is how I feel with you all talking about coffee:

EDIT:

Also Aeth, thought you'd enjoy two of my new purchases in preparation for fall/winter here:

(CDBs, as much as I hate the MFA circlejerk, are legit, and the other pair are LL Bean, lifetime warranty. Third pair that are half in the shot are Varvatos and expensive as hell.)

Wow, Digg that's a lot of info! I already know about the differences between roasts, I drink blonde roasts mostly (specifically SB's Veranda blend as the Willow blend is too tangy for my tastes).

When you suggest not using a paper filter, is that only for french press, or for any coffee machine? The one I have is just a default coffee maker. It has a metal filter, but I took that part out and use paper filters because it's an easier clean up. If I'm losing caffeine and flavor by doing that though, I'll go back to using the metal filter.

I'm not sure you answered my question though. So does the grind not have any effect on flavor or caffeine levels then? Is it just the type of coffee maker you have that makes a difference?

Grind has an influence within the context of each coffee maker, but not much across them. On average, despite using coarse grounds, a French Press will produce more-caffeinated coffee than a drip pot will with medium grounds. Turkish coffee will have the most, but it doesn't have as much to do with the grounds as the fact that you'll actually be ingesting a fair amount of the beans themselves.

But yes, a French press with finer grounds will produce a coffee with higher caffeine content. Doesn't mean much though, because you really shouldn't be going below a medium grind with them (and even that's a stretch), because the mesh plunger won't filter that out. You'll get grainy coffee.

As for filters, it's really a toss-up. It's much better for your cholesterol to use paper, the coffee tastes better if you use metal. Caffeine won't be too meaningfully different in either (I'd guess it's less than a 5mg difference). It's not bad, per se, to be using metal.

If you're brewing decaff (for some crazy reason) though, use paper. The caffeine in coffee helps offset the cholesterol through a process I don't understand. You don't get that in decaff, making it much worse for you.

Of course, coffee is more than just caffeine and cholesterol. It's actually a surprisingly healthy beverage for the body, and there's a significant decrease in risk for a few different diseases from its consumption. And the most common con for it in public mind, blood pressure, actually doesn't hold true--long term studies on hypertension have not revealed any link between coffee and the disease.

Good news for me. Smiley: grin

Awesome, thanks for the info Digg. Part of my foray into drinking coffee on a regular basis was because I started to work at SB. The other part was because I know a few friends who self medicate their ADD with coffee, so I figured it couldn't hurt to try it. My mind definitely feels more alert when I've had my coffee, especially in the morning when I haven't had enough sleep. But that's true for everyone. It helps some though, and it doesn't make me physically ill like my meds do, so I'll take it.

I bought new shoes today. Sketchers Shape Ups with non slip bottoms for work, because my current work shoes suck monkey balls and kill my feet. My old pair of Shape Ups were great for foot pain when I first bought them, but they're old now and the cushion isn't as great. Hopefully these new ones will work better, especially with that price tag... Originally $95 but I got them on sale and with my employee discount for about $60.

I'm guessing around $600, maybe more.

Edit: I'd get the CDB's but they don't seem to sell the beeswax version anywhere here which sucks cause it's the best looking version... Hideous jaguar print? check. Beeswax? Nope...

The beer and wine probably came about as a process to make infected water fit to drink. The fermentation gets rid of a lot of harmful microbes in the water, and the extra calories help a lot when food is scarce.

There's a theory that people of European/Western descent are more tolerant to alcohol because their ancestors learned to brew in order to make liquid fit for consumption. Beer was literally safer to drink than water, so as you can imagine it was a huge staple of life. The Sumerians actually even had a goddess of beer.

Where as over in the East, people learned about the properties of boiling water before drinking it before they found out about brewing - they learned about tea. As you can imagine, this led to tea playing just as large a roll in the East as beer was in the West. It's theorized that when they in the East found out about brewing - for the West it was hops and barley, for the East it was rice - a very large chunk of the population had developed a genetic mutation which caused their body to handle alcohol very inefficiently. This mutation is responsible for an effect called Asian Flush or Asian Glow.

So basically, alcohol tolerance can be linked to human evolution in the same way as lactose intolerance.

If you know your size, I could get a pair and mail them to you. The pair I got was beeswax. Obviously you'd have to pay for shipping and the boots, but...

And yeah, $600 sounds about right. CDBs were ~$120, LL Bean boots were ~$180, and then a new wool military jacket was ~$110, plus I'm going to buy a couple pairs of jeans this week.

It kind of sucks, because I don't end up saving a whole **** of a lot of money (outside of my 401(k) and stock purchases). But I live in the best part of the world, so I don't really need to travel until I move up to a position where I make more money.

I know of that, but who first though to try it? I mean, heating up water I can understand but adding leaves of a random plant to it not so much, fermenting random fruits and grains and mixing them with water is also not really the most obvious thing to try I'd say.

PigtailsOfDoom wrote:

A pretty good brewery too I think, I'd love to try some of their beers but even with their up and coming expansion they'll still only produce some 300k barrels a year which means it's still highly unlikely anything will make it here.


Edit: Thanks for the offer Theo but I really want to be able to fit shoes before I buy them so I'd be a bit uncomfortable with doing that.

I can get all, or at least most of, the Cali/OR brews up here.

Plus, a pub owner up here is a really good friend and he definitely hooks it up when he's looking at getting something new on tap.

Also, weather and general area is better here as opposed to Cali/OR. Vancouver is two hours away, Portland is three, Victoria is a clipper ship away, and some of the best hiking and skiing in the world is in my backyard.

Oh, and awesome wineries.

They may have the best beers, but I'd argue that a beer is only as good as the food it goes with and when it comes to enjoying beer, nothing trumps a smorgasbord. A smorgasbord with snaps (aquavit)!

Wikipedia wrote:
Danes, Swedes, and Swedish-speaking Finns have a tradition of singing songs (called snapsvisor) before drinking snaps. These snapsvisor are typically odes to the joys of drinking snaps. They may praise the flavour of snaps or express a craving for it.

I've been spoiled by Seattle's food, I think. We have a ridiculous variety of food if you know where to look (Yelp pretty much has to be your Bible here because it's so overwhelming).

In the last week I've had amazing: Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, Taiwanese, and German food (alright, the German was beer and a pretzel but that's German!); I've never really been anywhere that has such amazing food choices.

Chicago had better pizza, Italy had better italian (duh), and Hawaii had better tropical seafood, but Seattle has them all beat for variety, easily.

We don't get snow half as often as Oregon does (in fact, far less often). It also doesn't rain as much here as it does in Portland. It's also warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer.

So, yup. Better weather all around. Smiley: grin

Does NYC have a place where they serve Mämmi? Smiley: laugh


Why would ANYONE want to eat that?

Anyway I'm sure. I haven't turned up anything yet, but there are some finnish restaurants/bakeries in the city, and I can only assume it would be available. It might only be around Easter though.

You say that like it's a bad thing... Smiley: frown

Miss having that giant air conditioner they call Puget sound outside my window, and could go without the ice storms we get here. Then again, had the parents come down here and get excited about it actually being warm outside, so I'll take what I can get.

Yeah, it doesn't snow much on the coast. The salt from the ocean does something to keep the temp up, or keeps it from sticking or something. While I was growing up, in the 12 years I lived here in Brookings, it snowed twice. In Eugene however, it snows about once every three years or so. Warmer in winter and cooler in summer here too. But, Eugene actually has seasons, which is one of the reasons I like the weather there better, despite the colder winters. Plus I like actually having a summer. We didn't have one here this year, I'm still mad about it.

So lolgaxe, another challenge then. How about yak butter tea?


(I'd ask about Dutch stuff but I know the answer's going to be yes to all those anyway)

That's not hard to find at all. Pretty much any Tibetan restaurant has it. I've had it in random towns in both Massachusetts and NY--you can definitely find it in NYC.

[EDIT]

Also worth noting, after trying it in three different places (in two of which the food was amazing), I've decided that the butter tea is frickin' gross.

Wow, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World was one bittersweet movie.

I mean, I should have seen the bitterness coming, considering the title, but still... the movie was so upbeat and ironic the entire way through and then it ended in a complete tearjerker. It was like the ending to Knowing, except more romantic and therefore much more sad.

Excellent acting by both Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley, though. Loved Knightley's character and its stark contrast to Carrell's well-known reserved, clumsy, underdog character. And the bar scene was hilarious.



Still, what a sad ending. Smiley: crymore

They make candlewax out of yak butter as well, it's really no surprise that it's @#%^ing disgusting. Hence why I though nobody would have it since who drinks that sh*t?

Come to NYC. If you can't find it, it doesn't exist.

Oh, I've been to NYC. I went there before I had a smartphone. It's amazing how that one invention has completely changed the way I dine out.

Yeah, I want to go back. In fall or spring, because the weather doesn't suck (too hot/too cold) during those times.

BEARS!

LYRICS
Bears! Charging down the ravine,
Eyes glowing bright as they tear out your spleen.
Over the mountains they fly with a roar
Wherever they go, the bears just leave gore!

Bears! Standing tall in the woods,
They'll bite off your face if you're up to no good.
Claws leaving scars, giant teeth tearing skin,
Fur on the outside and darkness within!

Beware the shadows that slink out of sight.
The noises you hear will fill you with fright.
Tonight the bears are hungry. (hungry...)
Tonight you will not escape. (no escape...)

Listening to you as you say your prayers -
Evil bears with deadly stares.
Ripping you apart to protect what's theirs -
There is no escape from the furious bears!

Hunters away! Stalking their prey!
Track deep in the woods, to skin and to slay,
They'll never catch up to the treacherous bears,
Leading the hunters back to their lairs.

Look up in the forest, and what do you see?
The face of a bear that's watching for thee.
Stand still, never budge, or the end will come quick,
Don't make a sound, don't break a twig.
Many ways you can die, torn limb from limb,
Being eaten by a bear would be especially grim.

BEARS! Watching you...
BEARS! You're just food for...
BEARS! Death comes slow when you're attacked by...
BEARS! Live to kill...
BEARS! Blood will spill...
BEARS! Children eaten by the giant...
BEARS!

Setting a trap will lead to your death,
You'll wake up in its jaws, you'll stop drawing breath.
Tonight the bears surround you. (Surround you...)
Tonight there will be blood. (YOUR BLOOD!)

Hunters away! Stalking their prey!
Track deep in the woods, to skin and to slay,
They'll never catch up to the treacherous bears,
Leading the hunters back to their lairs.
