@inspector_tiger Technically, no... Aside from the chicory, you can use a pretty fine grind with an AP, because there's filter paper. Also, the brew time on an AP is much shorter (which is supposedly what gives it less bitterness)... the pressure is supposed to make up for the time and extract all of the flavor with less of the bitter compounds. Finally, because you're compressing the grounds against the filter and squeegeeing the interior of the container with the plunger, there's basically no cleanup. You just pop the puck of grounds out with the plunger. I don't know how true all the 'science-y' stuff is, but I do prefer my AP coffee to all others I've tried.
@meatballsub Yep, that's what it meant, sorry. Lazy typist bad!
Geez, you think with a fridge that old, the electricity costs alone would be enough reason for the landlord to replace it.
@meatballsub Yes it uses more beans, but it's better coffee. Actually, I've been making it super strong too, so not a HUGE amount of extra beans. Love it SO much. Yes the coffee is great, but the easy cleanup is EVEN BETTER. I don't even bother cleaning it until the next cup of water is heating. A couple of adjustments if you're doing it for the first time: Try dark roast coffee beans, even if you don't usually. AP coffee is less bitter. Also, ensure that you're not overheating your water - 175F-185F max. Finally, use it upside down to mix your coffee - saves yourself a couple of steps. Also, that means you can finish heating up your water (to boiling) while the coffee brews in the press (for an Americano).
I guess I'm kinda ... You had warning signs with small amounts of income. You got more income, but didn't use it to address the problem ... you spent that additional income (maybe tempted to move away from home?)and made the problem worse! That additional income was your "lottery"! It's as if you won the lottery but spent it all without remitting taxes... Sorry, I kind of hope you don't read this and feel worse for reading it... That's not my intention at all. It's just when you get your next better job, and I hope you do, please consider setting aside taxes first.
50 shades is an abomination. However, I don't blame the author for plagiarizing horrible fan fiction and making a killing! Who wouldn't? I'm just sure there's good trashy erotica out there and am disappointed that this was what got popular.
Wow that's so shady! I've never paid an overdraft fee in my life and I'm still outraged. The punishment should be the waiving of all bank fees for those people scammed in perpetuity.
Ok this is pathetic but did I miss the chat last week?
A potential solution is to carry a little outlet splitter brick so that you can share an outlet with someone already using one... In pocket or purse. As a bonus it can usually also provide power for a third.
Oh, I always figured ski tags were just laziness. Like how I'll wear a hospital bracelet until I'm conveniently near scissors. Guess not!
