  • Video Roundup: 4/19/2019

    It's that time once again for yet another video round up here at the SCG Blog!

    This week we've got another classic from Clementine, commercial goodness from John, and a good ol' fashion Crew Review from everyone's favorite coffee expert!

    First up, John gave us a look at the Bunn ICB Infusion brewer.

    Next, Gail took a look at the brand new Miele CM5300!

    And last but certainly not least, Clementine offered up a spicy AeroPress brew to round things out!

    That's all for this week!

  • Coffee Collaboration: Head To Head: Cold Bloom Method

    It’s a Brew Off!

    On a previous episode of Coffee Collaboration, Carl sent us a cold bloom French Press recipe that we tried and loved. A new challenger, Ian, sent us his recipe and was absolutely sure it was better! We love a good competition, so we brewed up both recipes for Gail to judge.

    How did our competitor’s fair?

    Check out the full video below to see who brewed it better! Plus, watch Gail be, well Gail, and make a mess as she brews both Ian and Carl’s cold bloom methods.

    Have a recipe you want us to try out? Drop us a comment on YouTube with your recipe!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ian's Cold Bloom Recipe:

    Coffee: 18 grams, finer than drip coffee

    Water: 60 grams of cold water

    Mix water and coffee before leaving for about 20 hours. Drop the slurry into an AeroPress and top up (to the number 4) with hot water at 195F.

    Brew for 10 seconds. Plunge!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Carl's French Press Recipe:

    Begin prep for French Press coffee (12 hour wait time). Put the grounds into the press, pour enough water to get all the grounds wet, then add just a splash more water and let sit for 12 hours.

    Add your hot water (195F) to the slurry and brew for the normal amount time (about four minutes) and there you have it!

  • Crew Review: Planetary Design Coffee Press

    Planetary Design Coffee PressThe double wall craze continues to sweep the nation! First it began with upgrading regular ol' coffee cups, then we saw the double wall sneak its way into travel mugs and now, here at last, a double walled vacuum insulated table top coffee press! Folks, I would like to introduce to you the Planetary Design Coffee Press.

    Like I previously mentioned this french press has a double wall that insulates your brew, keeping it nice and hot for hours. The Planetary Design Coffee Press comes in three sizes, 20oz, 32oz and 48oz. The 20 oz pot is perfect for a couple sharing some delicious coffee while the 48oz can caffeinate a crowd. All three of the sizes come in either a black or chrome finish, so the choice is truly yours.

    What really makes the Planetary Design Coffee Press stand out in the crowd is the patented plunger and ultra-fine stainless steel mesh. It is designed to extract maximum flavor from your grounds and keep them where they belong (in the press!). I love the french press as much as the next guy but I really don't like having to pick grounds off my tongue, which is why I love the additional mesh screen on the pour spout that prevents even the most elusive coffee grounds from entering my cup (and subsequently my mouth!).

    All in all this is a great coffee press that is designed to last. It feels sturdy and brews up a mean cup of coffee. Watch the Crew Review below to see Gail brew up a pot and see what its all about! Thanks for watching!
