Custard is supposed to need longer steeping than others. Mine never gets the chance. The RedJuice Accies Ambrosia custard is nice.

Must get some Dulce de leche which is in the original GVC recipe.

I can now confirm that it works very well and that I've OD'd on caffeine.

Yeah, wow! That looks nice.

Ever try a siphon or balance brewer? Those look real interesting to me, but the price is holding me back from trying

RE: What did you get today?
I'm firmly of the opinion that the AeroPress is about as good as it gets. I've not tried a balance brewer - but the Cona machines which I imagine fit in the category of siphon machines burn coffee horribly if left to reflux. The prof (Head of Department in the UK, most senior academic.) of Computer Science in 1979 had one of these machines that ran continually. If you turned up late for his tutorials you didn't get coffee. Everyone turned up late as the coffee was horrible!

The balance brewers look interesting, if a bit fiddly.

RE: What did you get today?
Just played with it thus far. The beans were a bit stale and a higher roast than I prefer. I'll get some beans better suited to my taste tomorrow. Just cleaned it out and set it up (Which took an hour with two highly indignant assistants who thought they ought to be fed.) to see how it did. Then adjusted the volume to suit my espresso cups. And chugged about ten of them while playing.
