Topic: Good Brew in Anaheim? (8 msgs / 203 lines)
1) From: kvindlog
I'm headed to Anaheim next week.  Been going there on business for years, but have never found a good cup of coffee.  Any recommendations?
Or perhaps I need to borrow one of Brett's Zass grinders and brew my own...?

Brett set me up tonight.  Not in a bad way, and not on a blind date (I'm
happily married!).
No.  Brett invited me over to his house this evening to loan me one of his
precious Zassenhaus grinders and a French press.  He also included a very
tasty lesson on how to brew coffee in a French press using, what Brett likes
to call, "the Right way."
It was a sweet experience.  Despite the coffee a SM decaf blend being
freshly roasted and not rested to allow it's full flavor to develop, the
coffee came out absolutely delicious.  Probably the sweetest cup I've
tasted.  Wonder what it would have been like had it been rested a few
days.more of the bean characters and less of the roast, I'm sure.
Brett surprised me by using a much coarser grind than I've ever used - or
seen.  He also used a LOT of coffee to compensate for the coarse grind - a
full three-quarters cup for the 4-cup FP.   (Am I giving away the crown
jewels yet Brett?  Sorry!)  The result was a sweet, thick brew that was very
pleasing.  Think I would probably cut  back on the coffee a tad to suit my
personal taste, but I'm wondering if one of the keys to sweetness could be
the coarser grind.
Gotta do some experimentation.  Now I'm on the lookout for a great deal on
Zass and a FP for myself!
I've learned a lot about coffee from Brett.  But the best thing I've learned
from him is how sharing and enthusiastic interest help seal a friendship.
Thanks Brett!  I'll be thinking kindly of you this week as I sip my coffee
in my hotel room!

I should say one more thing.  After reading all the posts about how long it
takes to grind enough beans for a full pot in a Zass, I was beginning to
think I should go another route.
But as we played with his two Z grinders we tried a variety of grinds, some
coarse, some fine enough to make a puck.  Brett ground a full hopper, dumped
it, then refilled it halfway, ground that batch, and dumped it - all in 60
seconds flat.  Quick enough for me.  I'm sold.

French Press has some things going for it that I think make for a "sweeter"
cup:
1) Full-time, Full-contact extraction
2) Lower Temperature
3) Larger grind size
4) No paper filter to absorb some of the flavor oils.
Aeropress extraction has similar things going for it, but adds the filter
for a cleaner, sludge-free cup.

Well, its few miles from Anaheim, and I haven't been there yet myself, but
if you go to Kean Coffee in Newport Beach:http://www.keancoffee.com/you can get coffee roasted, and possibly brewed, by Martin Diedrich himself.
