    I have always wanted to try one out, but I have a worry about cooking with aluminum. My fam has some weird, somewhat hereditary head issues, so I try to steer clear. If there was a steel version . . .

    Yes. Get a stainless version. I am like that with Al as well.

    Wait... how's it messy? It's so easy to clean. You just pop out the coffee puck, rinse and you're done!

    Maybe my friend is a bit careless (much like I'd be before that first cup), but there would always be grounds and splashes everywhere either from the initial stirring or when cleaning out the business end. Not a big deal at a campsite, but more than I want to deal with daily at the office. I also have the same feeling about grind-n-brew coffee makers.

    The concept is very cool and is close as it can get to real deal espresso.

    How important is the base ECU tune when running 87 FOB Performance, for example? I have the 8966304A7000 ECU Tune. It looks like I could self-TSB update to (...)A7100...should I? I need to redo the OVtune procedure over again right?

    PS, speaking of procedures, I only drink pour over coffee at home: Peet's Italian Roast ground at the store on #2, brown paper filters, 3 repeatable scoops, water temp @200°F, first pour only enough to de-gas, pour every 60s until I fill the same container that I use every time. This is the result of a little bit of experimenting and adjusting for taste.

    It was said a while ago, if you search OVT's posts in the Dev thread, that the TSB tunes are the best basis for the OV tunes. Yes. You would need to flash the OV tune after applying the TSB. I would also recommend the DTC and LV Resets.


    Thanks! I think that is the small batch route that I want to go. :cheers:

    !!!

    I can't even imagine how that's possible. LOL!

    I even use a stainless steel filter for mine. So it's a little more work to clean because I'm not disposing of a paper filter.

    He has the SS filter also. IDK. I watch him go and think that I could do it a bit less messy, but also know that it is going to go pear shaped at some point.

    No. I heard he had a plan to look after you stick handlers first. :crapstorm:

    I use the disposable Melitta brown filters at work or for camping. No cleanup necessary except a simple rinse if preferred. Just add coffee to filter, initial pour at about 200deg, wait 30-60 sec for the bloom then finish pour till cup is full. I do sometimes use a gold mesh cone filter at home.

    French press is good but requires cleanup. Keurig is convenient but less options and can be so so, wife does use one. Also use a MyJoe for the wife when traveling. The pour over method has many advantages and I consider it the best for a perfect cup of Joe!

    That simplicity is what I am looking for.

    We have an old Keurig at home. It's only reason to exist if convenience and never a good cup of coffee or even hot chocolate. I wonder if electric kettles were more popular here, that Keurig would even exist? It is like the middle ground between heating a kettle on the stove or using the microwave.
