Coffee Engineering

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

So my housemate has this really fancypants french press which is all like “she think she cute” but actually ends up making the siltiest coffee ever. You’d think that with all the video business going on I would let it slide but I ended up ordering a bunch of stainless steel cloth and some silicone washers from McMaster and going to town on that piece.

I made an additional filter with a piece of 200 x 200 mesh which according to McMaster is more than good enough to keep flour-sized particles out, and stood it off on said washer (compressed to keep particles from coming up around the shaft). The french press got a better but damned if there still wasn’t silt. I decided to worry about my job again.
