    Dude, you really need to try.

    I am by no means a coffee connoisseur, but I will forever support Black Rifle Coffee Company. The things those guys do for the Veteran and LEO community is astounding. And god damn, their commercials are hilarious.

    Currently I'm drinking Ruta Maya Dark Roast (Austin, Texas) but my all time favorite is pretty much any brew from Third Coast Roasters (also from Austin) every time I'm in town I always try to pick up a few pounds. :yep: there are a few Roasters local here in houston, but location and hours have yet to be convenient... Infact, so much so with traffic, getting coffee from Austin is actually less troublesome... :crazy:

    One of the few kitchen appliances I can not live without is my Breville. It grinds the beans, drip brew or can set a steep... and it makes EXACTLY the same cup each day as long as you don't change anything. I set it up each time I change beans, tweak it out for the first few pots, then we are rocking and rolling until we change beans/roast again.
    Is it a blade grinder or a bur grinder? I was schooled by a roaster one day that the bur creates a more jagged and coarse edge, forcing the water to flow THROUGH the grind rather than AROUND the smooth and more rounded grind that comes from a blade grinder. Yes, it was a very intense conversation and exactly what one would expect from an Austin hippy burnout turned professional coffee roaster. Nonetheless I was convinced to give it a shot and I will say that there is a strong possibility that he is right. When I have the time to put that much effort into my coffee, I bur grind it and use and Aeropress coffee maker. ImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1473995721.180408.jpg
    This no doubt has been the biggest game changer to my coffee experience and I highly recommend it.

    Interesting. You know, I'm not actually sure. Next time I need to add beans I'll take a look. One thing that I can not adjust is grind "size" or "fineness" or whatever you want to call it. But I wouldn't have thought HOW you grind the bean would make a difference... but if a hippy burnout turned professional coffee roaster said so, and you've tested the theory with promising results, maybe it's worth taking into account...

    No joke that's a lot of work though... had to check it out, seems a little like hand made expresso??

    I picked up a burr grinder a few years ago after it was recommended so strongly by a few coffee addicts I used to work with. Supposedly, they do not "burn" the beans like a blade grinder does and helps retain the "freshness" of the whole roasted bean.

    I also have the aero press and I highly recommend it too. Its amazing how differently it can make the same coffee taste. It is tedious to do every morning but on the weekends it is awesome.

    Seriously, you can make any dark roast taste awesome if it's fresh ground and you use an Aeropress. I still use a blade grinder though, I need to try the bur now that you've explained it like that.

    Lots of good coffee brand recommendations here too.

    Ok, that video is way more involved than I have ever gotten with it. I always prepped the night before and by that I mean, had the pieces laid out. Heated the water using my Keurig, poured it in, stirred, and let it steep for a few while I finished getting ready for work. Pressed it real quick, threw the puck of coffee in the trash, gave it a rinse and was out the door. When I looked at that vs. a french press it really wasn't that much more work considering how much better it is. I also had a 50 minute commute through country roads so coffee had to be on point.

    I commit the ultimate sin, & use a percolator. I like the old school taste of percolated coffee.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
