Re: Favorite coffee roasters in your area?

Edit: Tell me, are these roasted a few weeks before sale\shipping, or are they stocked, like Lavazza would be? Light blends often come off too soft in milky espresso-based drinks, but I'll try the dark and\or signature blend later in November. Thanks! Every bag I have received has been fresh and ta...

Re: Sharp edge but won't cut tomato skins very well.

...what is the reasoning behind reducing the angle? Wouldn't this just lead to sharpening the top of the edge? —- Yes if you don’t progress but you’ll learn to “sneak up” on the edge and not crush it with too much pressure. After some time you’ll get to forming a keen apex every time...practice, it...

Re: Birthday set of stones

I was just searching for those links on my own, when I stumbled on discounted Naniwa SS #400 (36$) and a Cerax single-grit #3000 Any thoughts on these? More specifically on the Naniwa SS series, and the 400 in particular? Also, the chosera pro mounted vs. unmounted, for 7$ difference, what would yo...

Some recipes i have used like to let the batter rest a bit to let the flour absorb the liquid.

—-
I let the batter rest a long time...I grind the white wheat berries fine and use buttermilk. Top with fruit preserves or raw honey...they are always a hit!
