Topic: A request for Tom (10 msgs / 191 lines)
1) From: Aaron
Tom I just went and ordered some stuff from SM's site today.  All the
new beans still available from the past month or two and a thermos.
I wanted to get about 4 more swiss gold one cups to give to folks, and
to replace one of mine that is starting to behave badly but see that you
decided to not carry them anymore.
:::whine:::::::::::
I like sediment and a fuller body in my cup of coffee.
I don't like to fiddle with paper filters and all that crap.
Can you please reconsider your decision to not stock the swiss gold and
continue selling them?  I believe that even with the aeropress, there
still is a market for the swissgold from others who like a cup of coffee
with more body, yet don't have the room for a fragile french press or
papers.
If this decision is final, if you got a few of them laying around the
shop still, ill be happy to buy them from you.
Thank you
Aaron

I have a Swiss Gold One Cup that I bought from SM and love it.
Although now I'm using a Presto with a Swiss Gold filter. I don't
want to mess with the Aeropress.

About the Swiss Gold in the Presto; is that a size 4 Swiss Gold, just like
the paper filter?

I have one and I love it.  I would definitely buy another one or two if you
stocked them.  I have an Aeropress, but it's the SG that I take with me in
my suitcase each trip.  I love the cup it makes.
Saludos,
John

Aaron,  A filter could filter out sediment up to its pore size, but I don't 
think it can filter out body. Wine is often filtered with very fine filters 
including reverse osmosis filters, but body isn't effected that I can tell.  I 
think what you are describing is mouthfeel, not body.  Nonetheless, I hear what 
you are saying. I don't like 'squeaky clean' wine OR coffee.  Dan

6) From: Jeff Oien
Yes that is correct. That setup tastes just a little more towards
a French Press than a Swiss Gold One Cup for some reason.

I'm afraid that a filter *can* remove body. I don't know coffee biochem well
enough to speak directly about it, but I know that the proteins that give
beer its body can be filtered out. That's why some brews are served cloudy;
the cloudiness is usually yeast, but in the case of wheat beers, it's partly
the proteins. Filtering them out would definitely make the beer taste thin
and watery. I have to believe that coffee could suffer the same fate,
although it's probably not proteins being filtered out. Maybe oils.

I always thought I could see more oil on the surface when using
a Swiss Gold than when using paper filter.

Absolutely.  A fine mesh filter will allow coffee oils to flow freely, where 
a paper filter will absorb some of them, as well as many of the larger 
particulates.  Both coffee oils and particulates will add to the 'mouthfeel' 
and the impression of body.
