On this show, we talk all about Decaffeinated Coffee. This is a subject which is often met with derision in the world of coffee for a variety of reasons - because why drink coffee when it doesn't have caffeine, because decaf is gross, etc. We discover that much of the reason we rarely drink Decaf - which can be quite delicious - is that most of the time quality decaf is limited to very few coffees. We want to explore the wondrous taste of coffee and all it has to offer, and much of the time...

CLR-E112: Getting Into Home Roasting

Being people who are passionate about the craft of coffee, we're naturally going to be hand brewing quite frequently. But the question stands, why should you (perhaps an average drinker of coffee at home) brew your coffee by hand? We are following along with a Forbes article that attempts to address this idea - sharing our opinions on the matter, as we as some thoughts about this sort of content being on Forbes.

CLR-E102: Can Your Water Be Too Hot?

In this episode, we attempt to address the myth that you don't want to brew with water that is too hot - that you can 'burn' your coffee. In order to test the water temperature myth, we also brew coffee at a lower temp so we can share just how important a high water temperature is in your brew. We brew 3 V60s, one at 190F, one at 200F, and one at ~210F (just off boiling). Is brewing just off boiling going to ruin your brew? Will it be better/worse? On the flip side, what happens when you...
