def philosopher: a machine for turning coffee into thoughts.

A taster of witty coffee-induced literature, The Pleasures and Pains of Coffee, by Honoré de Balzac:

“On this subject Brillat-Savarin is far from complete. I can add something to what he has said because coffee is a great power in my life; I have observed its effects on an epic scale. Coffee roasts your insides. Many people claim coffee inspires them; but as everybody likewise knows, coffee only makes boring people even more boring. Think about it: although more grocery stores are staying open in Paris until midnight, few writers are actually becoming more spiritual.”

I have a few ways to make coffee at home:

  • Simple filter coffee machine
    • My first machine got so hot it burns the coffee and made my coffee pot explode
  • Bodum pour over coffee
  • Mokka Express (3 persons)
  • Old Krups Espresso machine

I grind coffee using the Baratza Encore Esp, because it can grind coffee for espresso to filter to pour over.

I tend to make filter coffee with medium roasted espresso beans, but then overdo the amount of beans.
