  1. Mine are also returning PL Gran Robusto 2017.
  2. Uh oh.. I’ll go check my box and return with an update.
  3. MM&SRW Prize. Thanks so much to @El Presidente & the crew for such an amazing and generous prize!
  4. I’m a sucker for tin packaging lol. Also pleasantly surprised by the date on these RGPCs.
  5. I use a Bonavita variable temp goose neck and a digital scale. My pour over is a chemex knockoff from amazon, the grinder is an electric conical burr (also amazon knockoff) but I did order a baratza encore which I’m very excited about.

  11. From Wikipedia: “An innovation in antimicrobial surfaces is the discovery that copper and its alloys (brasses, bronzes, cupronickel, copper-nickel-zinc, and others) are natural antimicrobial materials that have intrinsic properties to destroy a wide range of microorganisms.” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimicrobial_surface I imagine that, whether anyone knew the chemical reasoning at the time, they noticed that mold didn’t seem to grow on copper and so it was a good choice to insulate humidors.
