Fads come and go, and research depends on the parameters, which should be carefully analyzed. Data can be manipulated to show whatever it is you seek to promote.....
That's so true.
Most study's are sponsored for by groups with certain interests and some how set out to prove just what the groups hoped for :)

It is always interesting to hear from people what their experiences are with black or white coffee. I find this sort of feedback more relevant.
White coffees are easier on the stomach, and some people find black coffee too acidic. Everyone is different, and so are their tolerances.

I enjoy both, but try to keep the volume of milk as low as possible.
First thing in the morning, a white coffee is more palatable, as I find an espresso quite harsh on an empty stomach. I do enjoy black coffees through the day, and am always partial to an iced latte or deviation of it on a hot day.
When dining out, I shy away from white coffees as generally the milk used in cafes, does not always agree with me.

As to health benefits of certain foods, I listen to my body. Fads come and go, and research depends on the parameters, which should be carefully analyzed. Data can be manipulated to show whatever it is you seek to promote.....

I will be there Simon et al.
Probably on the Thu though (trade day).
It's always great.
My tip - bring along a spit cup so you can taste and taste without getting the jitters.
Cheers,
Paul

That is an EXCELLENT idea.... I always make the error of drinking far too much :s

Black is the way to go.
I had a mate who used to drink 3 lattes per day. When he started up with a PT the PT's first advice was to "go black" to trim up.

Hi Simon, I can't make it this year unfortunately, although yes it's usually a good event and also a good way for members to meet up in person; feel free to use this board as a record of experiences/pics!

Hi guys, the Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) is the largest dedicated coffee show in the Southern Hemisphere. MICE launched in 2012 with the purpose of bringing the global coffee community together and showcasing Australia’s contribution. In 2018, MICE welcomed more than 120 exhibitors, featuring the latest in espresso equipment, coffee brewing devices, exotic and expensive coffee beans, roasting equipment, and more. In 2019, MICE will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from from 7 to 9 February.

Decided to put this in the 'Social' board in case a group of you want to take the opportunity to use it as a 'meet up' point in Melb!

Excellent technique and very similar to what I’m doing. I’m lucky enough to have s kettle with a temperature control so that make it a bit easier. I also noticed an improvement when I changed to a double walled plunger pot for thermal stability. This was most noticeable with lighter roasts.
