Pour Over Coffee Station


I posted on Twitter that I was going to try my hand at roasting again over the long weekend but focused on building my pour over station instead. It wasn't hard, but did end up costing me a little more than anticipated. Here is what it took to make it:


Materials
  • 2 ceramic pour over brewers: $6.99/each at World Market (http://www.worldmarket.com/product/red-euro-coffee-dripper.do?&refType=&from=Search)
  • (1) 1/2in x 6in x 4 ft piece of wood sturdy wood (probably only need 2 ft, but the extra gives you room for error): About $5
  • Wood stain and sand paper to your taste
  • 3/8in Galvanized pipe: About $35
    • 2 - end caps (feet)
    • 3 - 4in pipes (legs and neck)
    • 1 - 3 in pipe (neck)
    • 1 - T - coupler (center of base)
    • 4 - 90º couplers (legs and neck)
    • 1 - 12 in pipe (main staff)
    • 2 - 6in pipes (from T to legs)
    • 1 - 4 in flange (for securing the board)
  • (4) 1-1/4 in bolts with nuts: About $4
Tools
  • Drill
  • 2-1/2 in hole bit
  • 1/4 in drill bit
  • pencil
  • ruler
Two major tips for putting this together:
1) Do not tighten the pipes until you are ready to finish. They do not come apart easily.
2) Be careful with your measuring.

Other than that, it is pretty self explanatory. I made this just by looking at a picture.

Post some pictures in the comments of brewers you have made!

Barista Capsule

I was cruising through my back log of Coffee News emails and spotted this article that caught my eye: The Barista Capsule. I had to know what it was. I have been working on coffee cart plans for a while but could never really figure it out. It was always to big or too heavy, or we couldn’t figure out how to power everything. I realize I was most likely making it far too complicated, but these guys looked like they figured it out.

Re-Branding

I've officially decided to start the process of re-branding. What does that mean? Well, to me...that means I'm kind of starting over.


2017 Goals

Sitting here trying to think of something to write about, I realize I am kind of in limbo. I haven't had a lot of new coffee experiences because of the craziness of the holidays and I don't have any grand plans for the future....wait a second...that's terrible. How can a business not have plans for the future? I need some goals.
