Today was my first day playing with the temperature of the burner. I’d noticed the Express was feeling a little sluggish, and on one day couldn’t even push the water through the grounds without a little boost from the burner.

Many moons ago I wrote a tutorial about how to imbue your NGINX server with SLL using the EFF’s certbot (which you can read here). Well, by my estimation (from looking at certbot’s release schedule on GitHub) I was using v0.22.2, which is 5 minor releases behind the current 0.27.1 version. And, in my usage of the tool, I’ve found that NGINX mode has come a long way.

To continue my experiment in the factors of bitterness, today I inverted day 2’s brew: full filter compartment, lid-open brewing. (All the other factors, like bean and grind, stove temperature, etc. have been controlled for).

As planned, today I tried brewing with the lid closed and slightly fewer grounds in the filter. I was trying to isolate the factor responsible for yesterday’s more mild brew. Today, it took 8:18” for the joe to start pouring out from the sprout, and about 20 seconds to fill the top chamber.
