It can't prevent repeats.

"Is your coffee habit killing you or saving your life?"

Well, it may not be saving my life, but some days it is certainly saving other people's lives.

I lived with somebody who drank an entire pot of French press every single day. She usually left the kitchen trashed with food rotting in the sinks after cooking, so I'm okay with her future heart attack at a still youngish-age.

"Is your coffee habit killing you or saving your life?"

As all of Fark knows, the answer is "No".

Well, prevention of Parkinson's is good. I may be at some risk because of taking a few more head shots than maybe I should have, and a grandfather who died of Parkinson's. The bad news is, that grandfather was good for about 10 cups of coffee every day for most of his adult life.

My old coffee 3D printer is starting to lose its efficiency.

Needs a regasketing.

Like everything, ENJOY IN MODERATION.

/health and fitness is not that complicated folks. I promise you.

Enough about Turkish coffee; have you ever been in a Turkish prison?

The answer is, as the answer often is: You be you.

Except for the gum. It doesn't work.

I could've sworn I read or saw a research article that showed French Press coffee raised very small amounts of cholesterol that it was considered negligent and not a source of increasing your cholesterol.

Off to the googles.

I've also gone from 3-4 cups of coffee a day to just one cup and am feeling a lot better now. More energy during the day, sleeping better, able to function, etc..

Fark coffee, jittery bitter tasting colon fuel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitragyna_speciosa is absolutely head and shoulders above anything else on the market when it comes to a quick buzz to get you out the door in the morning and at 5 dollars a serving is pretty much at cost parity with anything other than home percolation.

TEA-PARTY-PATRIOT: Fark coffee, jittery bitter tasting colon fuel.


That's part of the appeal.

 "But if you drink it every day in huge amounts, it may have an effect on your cholesterol levels."

"So, for women who are pregnant, although the evidence is not conclusive, we do suggest limiting coffee consumption at this stage of life," van Dam says.

"The coffee-shop kind of coffees are high in calories because they're large beverages and they have lots of cream and sugar. It seems obvious, but it's something to consider," van Dam says.


So two "we have no f'ing idea" statements and one that is obvious. Thanks for the information, Nutrition Expert Rob van Dam, epidemiologist at Harvard University.

I'm drinking tea right now, so I'm not getting any particular kick out of this thread to be honest.

Quantum Apostrophe: My old coffee 3D printer is starting to lose its efficiency.

I just got a very nice unused Krups one from a charity shop for £14. Normally £179.

It makes espresso so strong it could be called a 3D printer. Best coffee I`ve had at home.

Why don`t you print a gasket?

See, the thing is, even if you had a machine that could manufacture perfect gaskets out of the correct material with the atoms of my choice, for free, I'd still need to disassemble the Saeco, safely remove the old gaskets, put in the new ones, correctly re-assemble the machine and not damage anything in the process.

This is why I don't think that 3D printing is this magical technology.

That and the fact that a kit of all the original gaskets for the Saeco and springs is 10$ on eBay.

Is your Krups fully auto? I've gotten lazy. How's the steaming wand?

It`s the first steaming wand I`ve had that only puts out pure invisible steam at whatever rate I want. It`s sweet.

It`s a bit like throwing the baby out with the bathwater to dismiss 3D printing because a printer can`t take apart and reassemble your coffee machine though.

I don't dismiss 3D printing, I dismiss the unreasonable gee-whiz overhyping fanbois and the ludicrous defenses they come up with.

My Saeco makes relatively dry steam but only if the boiler is descaled regularly. It's aluminum though, I think a brass boiler is better because it probably has a higher heat capacity.

I also think the temperature control of the Saeco is off. It uses those pop-switches so I'm sure it's off.

When I get to it I'll measure the temperature at the boiler and see what's going on.

Coffee's not so great anymore either.

If I want an espresso I can chew I go here

A bit hipsterish but worth it. I usually try to time a huge oily fart on the way out if there are lots of hipsters.
