BachoTeX koffiedik

More visitor/cup photos: Jerzy Ludwichowski Jerzy's cup During the upcoming BachoTeX conference deep down in the Polish woods I will again provide espressos in my little cabin #10 which is conveniently placed along the footpath from many other cabins to the place where meals are served to the participants. Some visitors come early, to get a strong potion fighting travel fatigue or a little hangover from the beer consumed during very late-night meetings about ligatures, microspacing and hyphenation in the modern world.

Crema off?

Coffee comrade Conni sent me a link to this 2017 video by James Hoffman who refers back to a similar (now lost) video he made in 2009 about taking off the crema of an americano, or an espresso even, to leave out the bitter taste of crema. I tried it and altough it's fun to do and I imagine that if I get better at it, I can impress my guests with it, but the taste of the espresso is suddenly a bit dry. So for now I will leave it the way it is, on top. The crema, left for an hour, gets darker and darker  over time (see timelapse below) and when I taste it afterwards, it's very bitter, like chocolate of such high cocoa percentage that it's not meant to be eaten pure, but to be used in other recipes, like in gravy.

Some examples of the effect of the BHI In-Line Noise Eliminating module. It can't enhance a signal that's too weak to begin with (if the signal is too weak, you hear a crystalline tinkling sound) but it can filter out a lot of noise, thus enhancing voice (not music). bhi in-line noise elimination Youtube version: Dutch noise can also be eliminated: Dutch noise elimination   Youtube version:
