From time to time I share two of my favorite links  and they are always well received. So that started me thinking about kicking off this thread were we could "share the wealth". I am looking for those post on coffee geek, home barista, blogs, rants what ever reference information you find or found yourself turning to regularly.  I am really hoping this will be a killer thread that people find very useful. On the other hand it could flop but  if you don't mind sharing and lets keep it neat with titles in the post before the links. Here are two of my favorites:

Brewing ratios for espresso beverages - original poster - Andy Schecter

Espresso 101: How to adjust dose and grind for setting by taste - original poster - Jim Schulman

 
Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

well, sadly, I don't have anything bookmarked.  I've done a lot of cutting and pasting though, so I have several MS Wrod files with excerpts from different pages and threads.

The place I seem to send people to all the time though, is Randy Glass's site... www.espressomyespresso.com , in particular his easy guide to better espresso at home. Article 12 under "How To", about midway down the right hand column.

I was hoping that lots of people would post stuff like you did John, I saved both of those into MSWord from the last time you posted them, and I even printed out Jim Shulman's guide to improved extractions based on taste.

Well we can just keep updating the thread as we find or reference older information. I think it will gain traction but it might take a while. You could link Randy's guide to better espresso for the thread even though you use it from a word document, same dif

Info on Freezing Coffee, this is what convinced me to try it many years ago and I still freeze to this day. It is not a light  read but it has a bunch of that science stuff from a legend in the business.

Actually, I did not bookmark a specific post because when I love what I read, I save the page itself or even subscribe. Some of my favorite sites with great and interesting posts are sprudge, coffeecupnews, and I love coffee.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.
