It’s ridiculous, but it works well.1 I also love that his solution to jitters is to make coffee.
For me, I’m not sure if it’s worth carrying all of this stuff rather than tolerating crap coffee when traveling or just bringing a few fancy tea bags. But maybe I haven’t felt the need as much because I just invite myself over to Underscore’s room to make coffee at conferences.
So I guess the solution is to only attend the same conferences, and stay in the same hotel, as Underscore.
Although I have the Hario Mini grinder and wouldn’t recommend it — it takes forever and a lot of cranking to grind 12 grams to AeroPress fineness. Underscore’s wider Skerton is much faster. ↩︎
