Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Uncle Michael, I must take exception with the no guilty pleasure edict. I was listening to The Grateful Dead from 1971 at the Fillmore East, and Pigpens rap on Good Lovin/Lovelight bordered on embarrassing. Would not wash today for all sorts of reasons. But it was along time ago, and it was Pigpen, so I rolled up the widows in my truck and put aside my revisionist displeasure and kind of dug it.

I get very good results with a jar and a microwave for "steamed" milk. Shake that thing, then heat it in the evil radiation machine (after taking off the lid). Then pour espresso or just good strong coffee into it and top with the sprinkle of your choice.

Now we haven't had a dedicated coffee machine of any kind for over a decade, just multiple sized french presses and an ibrik or two. I don't miss having a machine on our counter. I am sort of anti counter gadgets in general.
  12:53pm Dean:

Chemex has two filters: white (bleached, perhaps?) and "natural." For years I have used "natural," but had to change to white recently. Haven't noticed a difference in flavor, but maybe I'm being poisoned slowly, drip, drip, drip...

  1:01pm Dean:

Don't get me started, Franco. Peet's has declined in quality precipitously since the acquisition by some Acme-whatever investment company. They now compete directly with Starbuck's. I recently visited only to buy the natural Chemex filters, which they do carry. However, it rang in at a higher price than the sticker, so I protested. They wouldn't give it to me for the lower price. I complained to HQ. They replied and asked for my address to ship a free box of natural filters. Since then, nothing. Had to buy from a coffee roaster in town that only carries the bleached ones.

Avatar 1:15pm Jeff Moore:

Umm... on the question of bleached versus those brown "natural" paper filters:

I thought I should like the brown filters, but they smell a lot more like a paper mill when you hit them with boiling water than the Peet's bleached ones. Of course, good technique is to hit them with some boiling water, discard that water, then add ground coffee... but still, something which starts out with more off flavors seems worse than something which starts out with fewer.

And as the name implies: the implication is that the Peet's bleached filters use oxygen (do they use hydrogen peroxide in the process maybe?) as the oxidant rather than chlorine. Aren't dioxins a byproduct of processes involving chlorine?

Also one of my great pleasures in life is my bi-weekly trip to the old-timey bulk coffee store in Boston's North End. Most of their equipment is from the '30s, and they know my name and regular order (one pound Copenhagen roast, whole bean). In the summer they have a big steel drum of Italian Ice for a dollar a cup. It's lovely.

@Brian .. basically, when I came back from Vienna, (40 years ago) where I had cafe au lait every day practically, I felt there was no coffee here.

One night my dad and uncle were at their moms house. My uncle asked my grandma where she kept the coffee, she told him and he made coffee for himself and my dad. Pouring himself the first cup, He made a weird face when he tasted, but continued to drink it. Finally he said "Mom where did you get that coffee?" She was blind and had filled a coffee can with chili powder.

  1:44pm frenchee:

Jamaica is a musical with a book by Yip Harburg and Fred Saidy, lyrics by Harburg, and music by Harold Arlen. It is set on a small island off the coast of Jamaica, and tells about a simple island community fighting to avoid being overrun by American commercialism.

Arlen's music parodies the popular form of Calypso, which was in vogue in the 1950s, largely as a result of the popularity of Harry Belafonte, for whom the musical was originally written. Belafonte withdrew from the production due to illness, and the musical was then tailored around the talents of Lena Horne.[1] Harburg was blacklisted in Hollywood at the time of the writing of the musical,[1] and the satire is unusually pointed. With Calypso so out of fashion the musical now is dated, but many of the issues raised in its songs, including evolution, nuclear energy, and consumerism, remain topical today. --from Wikipedia
