Melitta Coffee Brewer

Andy Warren, 2014-02-13

I’ve been trying out the Melitta Coffee Brewer for a few weeks. Not much to it, it’s just a plastic stand that holds a coffee filter. Add coffee, then add water to do a “pour over” and wait for it to drip into the cup. It comes in two sizes, one that uses a small #2 filter and one that uses the larger #4 filter. The small works out good for a regular size/travel cup and it works ok with the larger filters. Of course you need a source of hot water for this to work, so I’ve been using a borrowed electric kettle that is really fast to heat the cup or two of water I need. Pouring takes probably 3-4 minutes. Pour some water, let it soak some, pour more water. Not bad if you’re talking to someone, maybe not the best thing for the first cup of the day. The only downside I’ve seen is that it is all too easy to knock it over and make a mess. Still, for three bucks it’s hard to beat. It also makes me appreciate that automatic drip coffee makers aren’t evil – they just automate the pouring.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
