I'm experimenting being more social over merveilles.town — after toying with it for a while, I still think there will be enough content for both spaces.

What to say about this Barrel Aged Shiraz Blend from Moka Clube. It embraces your tongue with a velvety grape-y mantle. Highly recommended.

Moving to 14 grams of coffee for 260 grams with the Hario Switch. It's been working better.

I have been having the urge to find a better espresso machine. I know this isn't something I want to seriously pursue, but I would love to have very good espresso at home. Sadly it's a hard thing to purse. My current idea is to pair a Comandante Grinder with an Aram. Still not ready to pull the plug on it.
April 6th, 2021 — Got my Comandante.
April 12th, 2021 — Will order an Aram soon.

I admit I tried some instant coffee again after a decade. It feels nostalgic, but it's also not coffee.
I'have been through a stump on my coffee business. I have been too lazy to conjure a nice cuppa, so been drinking capsule espresso mostly. Not good, but not too terrible.
