Different Types of Coffee Grinders

As their name implies, single serve coffee machines are designed to dispense one cup or one shot of coffee at a time. These coffee makers are convenient, easy to use, and of higher quality than most coffee drinkers would expect. They make use of pods or discs during the brewing process, which in the long run makes the convenient since there is no need to measure or grind coffee, and it makes them easy to clean since the pods or discs can be discarded after the coffee has brewed.

At first, these types of coffee makers were made by smaller, lesser-known companies, ใบเจียร  whose products were not always of the highest quality. As their popularity has increased though, the world’s major and better-known designers have taken on the task of creating their own. Today, there are several high-quality single serve coffee machines available for coffee lovers of all tastes and budgets. The following is a list by designer, of some of the most popular models available.

Keurig B60
This coffee maker features one-touch brewing, and makes use of the patented K-cups during the brewing process. The K-cups are pre-measured to deliver just the right amount of coffee for one cup. There are many different flavors to choose from in the K-cups (more than most other single serve coffee makers). This model also gives users the option of selecting the strength and amount of coffee they want dispensed. On the negative end, customers have stated that the coffee maker is noticeable loud. Additionally, some have stated that one K-cup is not enough to make a strong cup of coffee, so often two K-cups are needed during brewing.

Senseo HD7890/65
Certainly one of the more artistic coffee makers available (one color option is a bright blue color), the Senseo is popular amongst coffee drinkers mainly because of the quality of its roast. Although like most single serve coffee makers, the Senseo is limited in the flavors available, most customers are surprised at the actual taste of the coffee. At under $80, this coffee maker is an extremely good unit for the price. Coffee is made quickly and easily, and there is even the option to use two pods at once for stronger brews. Most customers seem pleased with the product, although the unit’s design is such that only certain-sized mugs will fit underneath. Additionally, the coffee maker has a relatively small water reservoir, but there is an option to purchase a larger one.

Braun TA1200 Tassimo
An intelligent and diverse brewing system, the Tassimo is more than just a simple coffee maker. For a start, it gives users the option of making a variety of drinks beyond coffee, including hot chocolate and hot tea. One of the best features of the Tassimo is its ability to actually “know” what it is brewing. On the coffee discs that this unit uses is a bar code. The unit can actually read the disc’s bar code and determine the amount of water, heat, and time for each individual type of disc. Despite all of its functions, most customers report that the unit is relatively easy to use. It is also easy to clean, easy on the eyes, and features a large water reservoir. The central complaints among those who have purchased a Tassimo is that the coffee in the discs is of poor quality and that there are only a few flavors to choose from.

Create these 9 marinades that give food a big taste boost total information

 

Marinades are one of the simplest ways to add fast and easy flavor to your meals. Combine a few ingredients in a zip-close plastic bag, add your meat, seafood, or veggies, then walk away for a while.

We’ve outlined some basic seafood  marinades below to help get you started, as well as some suggestions of what you can use them for. But the truth is, marinades are so versatile and easy to use, you can substitute whatever your favorite ingredients are or anything you happen to have on hand.

These marinades are enough to cover 11/2 pounds of food. Double up as needed, but keep in mind that you don’t need the food to swim in the marinade, just be thoroughly coated. Once the food has soaked up the flavor, you can pan-fry it, grill it, or broil it.

Citrus marinades

Citrus juices are fairly acidic, which means they permeate and tenderize food quickly. They work great as a base for marinades that you want to throw together just before dinner.

These marinades work equally well for seafood as they do chicken or steak. For seafood, marinate for up to 30 minutes; chicken and steak can handle up to two hours.

CHIPOTLE-LIME: Juice and zest of 2 limes, 2 tablespoons adobo sauce and 1 minced chipotle chili from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce, 2 cloves minced garlic, a hefty pinch of salt. Great on flank steak or shrimp.

ORANGE-CUMIN: Juice and zest of 1 orange, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, a hefty pinch of salt. Try with haddock or chicken breasts.

LEMON-HERB: Juice and zest of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon Italian herb blend, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, a hefty pinch of salt. Good on salmon or chicken thighs.

Vinaigrette marinades

Because vinegar is so aggressive, you’ll want to temper it with oil. This helps carry the flavor into the food, as well as prevent the flavors from becoming too jarring. Adding oil to vinegar also gives you a bit of leeway in your timing. For fish, seafood, and vegetables, marinate for 30 minutes and to up to two hours.

For chicken, steak, and pork, you can go for up to eight hours.

GARLIC-BALSAMIC: 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 4 cloves minced garlic, hefty pinch salt. Try with pork loin or steak tips.

SPICY HOISIN: 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon five-spice powder. Try on chicken tenders or scallops.

MAPLE-SOY: 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Try with pork tenderloin medallions or cod.

Wine marinades

Wine is a great base for subtle marinades. Because they have a softer flavor than citrus or vinegar, you can use them to highlight other flavors. Like the vinaigrette marinades, use a little oil to help carry flavors, and prevent food from sticking to the cooking surface.

These marinades work especially well for hearty vegetables and meats. Marinate from 30 minutes to overnight.

RED WINE-ROSEMARY: 1/4 cup red wine, 1 tablespoon olive oil, hefty pinch each of salt and black pepper, 1 large stem rosemary, chopped. Try with sirloin steak or portobello mushrooms.

WHITE WINE-MUSTARD: 1/4 cup dry white wine, 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, hefty pinch each salt and black pepper. Great with chicken thighs or eggplant.

RASPBERRY-GINGER: 1/4 cup sweet red wine, 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger, hefty pinch each salt and black pepper. Try on pork chops or chicken breasts.

The Feisty Shrimp That Kills With Bullets Made of Bubbles

 

THE GREATEST, SMOOTHEST gunslinger of all time—and I say it knowing full well I’m going to get emails for this opinion—is Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name, aka Blondie, of Sergio Leone’s classic spaghetti westerns. I mean, at a public hanging the guy sat back and sniped the rope to free the accused, then blasted off the hats of the men in attendance. Because let’s be real: Wearing a hat to execution is bad form.

 

But the greatest real-life gunslingers have to be the pistol shrimp, aka the snapping shrimp, hundreds of species with an enormous claw they use to fire bullets of bubbles at foes, knocking them out cold or even killing them. The resulting sound is an incredible 210 decibels, far louder than an actual gunshot, which averages around 150.

 

Pound for pound, pistol shrimp are some of the most powerful, most raucous critters on Earth. Yet at the same time, they are quite vulnerable, allying with all manner of creatures and even forming bizarre societies to protect themselves from the many menaces of the ocean bottom.

 

The Life Despotic

The pistol shrimp has two claws, a small pincer, and an enormous snapper. The snapper, which can grow to up to half the length of the shrimp’s body, does not have two symmetrical halves like the pincer. Instead, half of it is immobile, called a propus, which has a socket. The other half, called a dactyl, is the mobile part. It has a plunger that fits into this socket. The shrimp opens the dactyl by co-contracting both an opener and closer muscle. This builds tension until another closer muscle contracts, setting the whole thing off with incredible force.

When the plunger slams into this socket it displaces water that jets out at 105 feet a second, a velocity so high that its pressure drops below the vapor pressure of water. Tiny bubbles already present in the water suddenly swell in this low pressure, then collapse when the pressure climbs again.

 

“You essentially create this cavitation bubble,” said coral reef biologist Nancy Knowlton of the Smithsonian Institute. “And when the bubble collapses, it generates that snap sound,” as opposed to the impact of the claws themselves making the noise.

 

More importantly, the collapse of the bubble generates, for a split second, temperatures of 8,000 degrees Fahrenheit, nearly as hot as the surface of the sun, and also, oddly, a flash of light. The resulting shockwave bombards the shrimp’s prey, which if it’s lucky will die instantly because it’s then dragged into the pistol shrimp’s burrow and consumed. That’s not so fun if you’re half-conscious.It’s such a powerful blast that some species use it to drill into solid basalt rock, snap after snap, to make a comfy little home, like an aquatic version of Dig Dug, only with fewer dragons, or whatever those things are.

 

The creature has weaponized bubbles. (Another ocean critter, the mantis shrimp, produces cavitation bubbles when it rapidly strikes prey with its clubs, though it’s unclear if it evolved to use the bubbles or if they’re just a welcome destructive side effect). And pistol shrimp are far from conservative with their snapping. In fact, vast colonies of them all firing off at each other or their prey have been known to disrupt sonar equipment with a cacophony likened to the crackling of burning twigs. Yet there is an upside to all the rackets.

 

“Anywhere you go swimming in the tropics, if you listen around you, you can hear these things,” said Knowlton. “And some people have argued that instead of thinking about snapping shrimp sounds like an obstacle to hearing what it is you’re trying to hear, you can also use the sounds of snapping shrimp and other things on coral reefs to assess the health of the reefs.” Lots of noise means lots of life (and lots of pissed off sonar operators).

Like many crustaceans, the pistol shrimp will willingly shed its claws if attacked, because it’s better to lose a pincer than your life, but that won’t stop the noise for long. As complicated a structure as its snapping claw is, the shrimp will grow another—in a surprising way.
