Thank you to everyone who trusted me as their admin. This was a difficult decision. I wish I could continue, but I can't.

These two did NOT get along when we first got Clementine in January. And Clem was also very, very shy. It’s great to see them interact and be cute together 🥰

espresso thread 

James Hoffmann has a helpful intro to coffee flavours:

I’ve been pulling shots this week with a really light roast, grown at a high elevation. it’s been satisfying to chase after these delicate tasting notes by making small changes in my technique.

I never really liked Yirgacheffe’s but now that I know what I’m doing, I’m really enjoying this one!

espresso thread 

okay so, getting back into espresso. it’s been two weeks and I’ve learned a lot. I have a good luck prep routine and I’m pulling consistent shots. I’ve also hacked a kind of pre-infusion by diverting brew pressure out the steam wand. this new “measure your yield” thing, with brew ratios, is game-changing!

also, I’m learning more about coffee itself. hard to believe that I was roasting my own beans but didn’t really grasp how elevation and process affect flavour.

weird toots are usually due to over-caffeination

this morning, it’s just the opposite brb

A friend send me a link to their new tool they have built. It checks websites and gives suggestions on what can be done to improve security, speed, and so on. Pretty neat tool.

I immediately crash it by putting in http://localhost

the main thing about getting older is knowing lots of shit which nobody cares about anymore

Tired of being woken up before 6am by concrete saws and backup alarms (the old beepy ones)

I have a smart light that is programmed to fade in a half hour before sunset. Last night I started turning on at 7:30pm and I still haven’t recovered 😵‍💫
