I grind it with a burr grinder and use an aeropress to make it. Prefer using coffee beans roasted less than a week ago.

Thank you for responding I appreciate you reading and explaining your thoughts. I don’t think what I said is likely 100% true. I probably should have used the word racist. And even then there are likely people who vote for trump for other reasons. Perhaps doing that is still racist because they’re n...

Also being right wing does not automatically make it ok to call you any of those things, even racist.

Alex, did you read any of my comments or is discussing racism more interesting to you? And honestly the fact that you would say "is discussing racism more interesting to you" seriously troubles me. I mean, i don't want to be discussing racism. Racism is disgusting and unpleasant to even t...

Alex, did you read any of my comments or is discussing racism more interesting to you? Yes although you spoke in metaphors so I'm not entirely sure what it means. As far as my guidelines go, they clarify the fact that people should be able to speak more freely when calling out racism on the site. T...

Also I will add that the use of words like this is not new and it's been long regarded as racist. This is not some new "liberal spin" or redefining of racism . These rioters are nothing but wild animals. They need to be shot for setting buildings and vehicles on fire and for looting. Just ...

These rioters are nothing but wild animals. They need to be shot for setting buildings and vehicles on fire and for looting. Just because they don't agree with the outcome of a verdict does not give them the right to be dumb asses. Why do black people act so out of control when something does not g...

^^ That happened in 2014 and was swiftly dealt with by one poster and KIP Do you have any recent examples because it 2020 there are plenty of examples from 2020, many have been pointed out. many more have not. is that example not sufficient for explaining the difference in the use of the term wild ...

Did we not read the same guidelines? I've no issue with rules against racism, but declaring non-racist words to be racist is a slope of the slippery variety. And including the phrase "in any context" in a rule that would rely heavily on context to determine wether something was racist or ...

I think Alex said it's fine when used in a different context so if you were to say cr****r when you were talking about the food, that is okay.

No one is going to be stupid enough to think that is racist. Same as when you talk about fire crackers.

I came here with the intention of trying to help fix the issues I saw and tried my best to come up with a set of rules that reflected anti-racist principles and the pushback to this is absolutely shocking to me. I expected some dissent but the amount of people who are defending hate is just too hard...

What she did was absolutely unconscionable. You’re allowed to vent in the haven but not at the expense of another member. Since when has it ever been ok to make a haven post like that? It was obvious what she was doing and it hurt me greatly. If you’d like to defend that, I don’t know what to say. ...

Yes the haven is not a place where it would be acceptable to point out someone for being racist. It’s not allowed. The haven is sacred . It’s not a place to cause problems or to call out other members. It’s a place to vent about things going on in your life. Furthermore I want to make it clear that...
