I sure do love Kaldi’s Coffee in Columbia.
I’ve wanted to record my daily iced coffee creation for a while now.
I have a few of these every morning, probably too many really! I typically used Kaldi’s coffee brewed and then chilled overnight. Just a little ice, some fat-free creamer and I’m ready to go. I used to never put creamer in my coffee, wonder why I do that now… Never-the-less, I’ve settled on this recipe and it has never failed. Oh but what a difference quality coffee, water purity, grinding and proportion matter.
I grind my coffee just seconds before I brew. I use only fresh beans and as I said earlier, I prefer Kaldi’s coffee though I’ve recently heard good things about Dunn Brother’s Coffee (c/o @samuelaveryhunt). I use filtered water, once through a triple-stage Pür filter followed by a two-stage Pür filter. We have really metal-rich water in downtown Columbia so this is a necessary step to take all the copper etc out.
Perhaps tomorrow I’ll do a few more, trying out different angles and lighting techniques. The video today was really just a test or proof-of-concept. I think this angle might be fun…
Though the real fun will come once I modify my Kodak Zi8 with different lenses. Maybe someday I’ll own a proper HD video camera. @ZackLuye‘s Canon 7D is such a sexy piece of equipment. Too bad I’m a Nikon guy. Next time Zack and I shoot an AdagioTeaV together, we’ll have to do some experimentation with his camera.
