I play something similar when I cook for the family...

 

With all due respect to the OP and his slurry - I really hope nothing you cook... for anyone... looks anything like that!!!

Ha nice idea :)

 

What is the scoring criteria?

 

Maybe points for: evenness of the bed, fines separated up the side (if that's a good thing?) and maybe a bonus point for any coffee-related paraphernalia captured in the background?

I'm interested to see what other people's (Kalita) brew slurries look like!

Loving them so far. Actually quite informative. Why don't we all score our own brew slurries totally subjectively ha ha :)

Here is my v60 02 from this morning.

 

I think 6 out of 10 perhaps.

Out of Kalita Wave papers, but as I have the best part of 200 flat bottomed Melittas I thought I'd better start using my Brewista...14.5g coffee, 1+10 on Feldgrind, 30g bloom with valve shut, stir to wet & a shake:

Total 248g brew water added after opening valve at end of 90sec bloom, with Bodum compact kettle in 10sec, one stir at surface at fill, 4:00 total brew time.

 

Given the bed can't look better than the coffee tastes, I gave this 8.3 out of 9 :-)

My first reaction when seeing these all these pics was "man those are some beautiful beds". I am sometimes surprised how geeky I am :p

I'm slightly confused by the Brewista brewers and filters. Brewista recommend Melitta filters for these yet they make their own Brewista essentials basket filters that fit these brewers and also Kalita?

 

I've tried a few brews with the Brewista essentials paper filter using the Biarro AltoAir a few times and notice it drains a bit slower than the Kalita paper filter. Works fine.

Today's v60 02 brew using the April Coffees beans from the current LSOL. 21 g coffee, 350 ml water, 50 ml bloom, 1 slow and continuous pour. It finished at 3 mins 15 secs.

I think this one gets an 8 out of 10.

This morning's entry. Having some issues getting the lighting right. Using the flash would probably make sense. I only give myself a 6 in this instance.

Today's 2nd v60.[ATTACH=CONFIG]26258[/ATTACH]

Are you keeping the water level quite low there? I'd give that a 6.5/10 ☺️
