Coffee Coffee Coffee

I have a confession to make.  I’m a coffee addict and I don’t want to do anything to change.  I’m truly in love with the brown substance and over the last year I’ve become accustomed to the sound of our coffee maker.  My sister-in-law was nice enough to buy us a new coffee maker when we move back to New York, and it is the gift that keeps on giving.  I’ve been in love with our Cuisinart Grind and Brew since the day we took it out of the box.  We often set the machine up at night: there is nothing like hearing the beans grind and smelling them brewing.

I don’t know why it has taken me this long, but I finally decided to record the grinder in our special coffee maker.

The first section is the Grind and Brew dry fire, and it is followed up with a grinder full of beans.  It has a nice whirr to it, and it is truly a sound that I cannot get enough of.  If you could only smell the aroma!

Recording Geek Note: Rig consists of Schoeps CMC5’s setup for MS, with the MK4 as the mid. It was all tracked to a Sound Devices 744T at 24/96

  4. Luckily I’m already sipping on my coffee, or else Pavlov’s reaction would have kicked in. I was actually about to record the same thing the other day, now I don’t need to. Awesome recording Michael!

  5. Hey Michael!
    I use a manual grinder, yes! takes longer but it’s fun :)
