Sure, it gives the option to pay with all credit/debit cards when it takes you to the paypal cart area.

So yesterday, I called the shipping company to verify that my stuff arrived. Corporate tracked it, found it, and connected me to the Will Call/dock foreman at their terminal. He said 'yup, got it right here, come on over to get it anytime'. I asked if last night would work, or maybe this morning, and he said 'sure'.

So this morning I don my flak jacket and enter Compton. I go to Will Call, and they tell me they don't know what I'm talking about. They try to track it, and find nothing. I call the warehouse it was shipped from, and it hadn't shipped as of this morning.

. Like totally. Like a fat FU to USFReddaway. They ALWAYS do this ****. I keep using them because they have a wicked cheap flat pallet rate, but damn, it's annoying.

The hell if I know. Well, the tradeoff is shipping a pallet for $55, hell, ups'ing a 50lb box is $35, so $55 for 500< is CHEAP.

They're still morons.

Poison, any tips and tricks to using a moka pot? Or are the standard instructions good enough? Also, I just drank an entire 6 serving pot, am I going to die?

Well...You can play with the grind, if you have a grinder. Grind it a hair finer every time you brew, and note the time it takes to start coming out the top, and how fast it flows, as well as flavor. At some point, it'll get really slow. Be careful, because too much pressure, and you'll trigger the pressure release valve, something I've never done, but I can clearly imagine it involves lots of steam, a stream of piping hot water, and some ugly noise. The point is most people do it too coarse, and get weak, under-extracted coffee. It should be pretty thick and viscous.

Also, a big problem is the temp of the upper chamber. The hot coffee is coming out into a cold aluminum pot, and the coffee will only be warm when you drink it. You can boil some water and pre-heat the upper before brewing.

Also look into an Aeropress, I think it extracts better coffee.

Good info. I finally got a new gasket for my moka pot, but have been so focused on the aeropress, I haven't compared.

In the past, the moka pot was fine for latte, but I never really enjoyed the straight coffee from it. Aeropress, on the other hand, has converted me to a black coffee drinker.

I use the Aeropress and a Zassenhaus grinder for work. The Espresso Torro is great BTW.

Drinking my first roast of the new La Minita. Holy crap, it's good. It's initially full, FULL bodied, round and fat, with a smooth butteriness, and thick pure coffee flavor, and even at a slightly darker roast than I tend to do, a beautiful acidity shines through and lingers. There is absolutely zero defect in this coffee, it's really clean, no astringency, no bitterness, nothing.



Wow.

This is one of those coffee which taste good no matter what I do, at any roast level. Crazy!
