Pinned toot

I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.

This version of Pyro Qiqi is now obsolete. She's now capable of dealing over 300K. This is far enough over what I've seen anybody else do that I'm more confident in thinking I might have the world record for highest damage hit with Qiqi, but if anybody can point me at an example of a more powerful Qiqi I'd love to see that.

Just heard someone give the instruction: "yeet, but in a circle."

Stirring. They were stirring a drink.
Use this knowledge well.

Copyeditor two years ago: "Please, never ever send me anything like #savagedBySystemd" ever again. EVER."

Copyeditor tonight: "Given a choice between SbS or TLS and SNMP, write all the explicit porn you want."

My next online coffee roasting class has officially sold out!

I think I might have the highest publicly shared damage from Qiqi. This is from a no food practice run last night after I changed up my combo, making it both more effective and more difficult to execute consistently. Tonight I'll be getting her to out-damage my Hu Tao.

I don't know what the current world record is for most damage dealt by Qiqi, but I think I'll end up well over the most I've seen and there will still be room for improvement.

The answer is yes. I did a no food test run last night of a modified combo that brought damage over 191K and further improved her build this morning. I can do a little more after work and then I'll do a proper run where I should have no problem dealing well in excess of 200K with this character people say is "just a healer". (I made a poll in a post showcasing her doing over 189K and already most respondents say that's more than their proper damage dealers hit for)

My coffee from Papua New Guinea is in the country now so I'm hoping to have that back out for sale mid to late next week.

Made an aeropress of the next limited edition coffee. It's been a long time since I've used that brewing method, but this is a coffee that's well suited for that device.

Saw a ball in my back yard and also saw kids in neighboring yards so I went out to return the ball to whichever group of kids it belonged to. I guess times are different now but when I was their age I'd've just jumped the fence and gotten my ball back.

I found what I want to do with the coffee with a cup that's just a tiny bit lighter than one of the cups from the first attempt. If this holds into a production test roast, the coffee is sugary sweet (as in, if you get a cup of the black coffee you could be forgiven for thinking that someone stirred a packet of sugar into the cup), nicely balanced, greater intensity than cups in the first attempt.

Continuing to work on a new coffee. The first batch was my usual do whatever, pull a dozen cups out at different roast levels, and taste how the coffee performs as it progresses through the roast. In that I identified a range of four cups in the middle where I thought the coffee was at its best, but it seemed like I could do better so for the second batch I changed the timing on the roast and pulled 10 cups that covered the range of 4 from the first batch.

Got a reply back about the mystery soy sauce. They don't want it back so we're going to contact the food bank and see if they know anybody who might want it. I wouldn't be surprised if they said no, but we'll try.

On the way home from work today I saw an oncoming vehicle going about 20mph over the speed limit with a big hyper dog climbing up above the driver's shoulders. That was scary and I hope they got where they were going without killing someone in a car wreck.

Still no reply about whether they want the soy sauce back. I don't think I've ever had soy sauce in a coffee before. Soy sauce latte? The stuff is in 6ml packets so I'd rather not subject my staff to needing to open a bunch of those.

Today's delivery is part 2 of an order that partially arrived yesterday. I got everything that was on the order, but also a case of "less sodium" soy sauce packets which I certainly would not have ordered.
