This coffee documentary from yesteryear is quite nice.

Check out some vintage print ads from around the same period.

I’m a bit coffeed out today. I spent the morning behind the machine at church – and I’m starting to understand why Tony Montana had the rule “never get high on your own supply”… But this video makes me want another round.

That video is via the Weekend Edition.

Here’s a shot of one of my shots from this morning.

Market Lane was one of my favourite cafes from last year’s Melbourne trip – they’re a classy establishment. They also make classy videos. Like these…

Here’s their guide to pourover coffee in video form…

This is a beautiful thing.

One of the things I miss most about the north side of Brisbane is our weekly staff meetings at Dandelion & Driftwood.

Owners Peter and Penny Wolff are coffee dynamos, pushing the Brisbane cafe scene to really exciting new places. One of the things I love, as an interested observer of the coffee industry, is the way they champion the idea of quality coffee across the board – training and helping others, not just their own staff – though they do push their team pretty hard to develop through competitions and training, in a way that makes sure they attract and develop passionate people. Some time last year another cafe – who in another industry might be thought of as “the competition” had a machine break down, and these guys lent them a spare. They’re really impressive – and they make a delicious cuppa.

The team at Hasbean produces good videos, and apparently good coffee – though they’re based in the UK, and I’ve never tried it.

Here’s some important advice on keeping your coffee fresh.

Cold Drip kind of fascinates me in an “I don’t actually enjoy the flavour like I enjoy every other brew method” kind of way. I’ve had several cold drips now ranging from palatable to mildly enjoyable. I just don’t get the fuss. And this might be why – coffee is made to be brewed hot. So if you want good iced coffee. Brewed. Here’s a nifty trick. Brew onto a bed of ice (though from what I remember of high school science this has the potential to smash glass if not carefully managed). But also. Factor the ice into your brew ratio. It’s clever stuff from the Counter Coffee mob. Here’s the thinking behind it. And here’s the beaut video.

Brilliant. This is what life powered by coffee looks like.

There’s a verse in the book of Proverbs, from the Bible, which says:

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

That’s clearly the reasoning behind the parenting on display in this video.

Good stove top coffee is almost impossible. Not impossible. Just almost impossible. Another video guide from James Hoffman. The man is a prodigious maker of worthwhile video guides…

Preheating the water (even preboiling) before tipping it in the stovetop chamber is the top tip. He also uses a much coarser grind than I have in the past.

This is great.

Videocast #3 – Chemex/Pourover from James Hoffmann on Vimeo.

He uses 30gm of coffee for 500mL. Interesting.
