Helpful Hints from joeeze: How to tell if coffee beans are fresh


Freshness Test

To check if your beans are fresh, scoop 1/2 cup into a ziplock bag and press out all the air, then seal the bag and leave it overnight. If the beans are within seven to 10 days of roasting, they will make the bag puff up from the carbon dioxide that they release. If the bag remains flat, then the beans are not producing gas — a sign they've passed the point of peak freshness.

Kai Mimuno Oval Nail File — "Round is the new flat"


From the website:



Give your nails the 5-Star treatment with the decidedly unconventional, wonderfully stylish Kai Mimuno Oval Nail File.

Resembling something that wouldn't look out of place in the cockpit of Bond's latest whip, this tool is precision engineered from the highest quality Japanese brushed stainless steel, using a sophisticated metal injection molding process.

The result is an ergonomic, elegantly contoured file with a soft feel and cutting edge performance.

Ergonomic shape offers perfect balance and control.

3.15" x 1.85".

Made in Japan.


Think outside the nail space: looks to me like this puppy could double as a stainless version of brass knuckles should push come to shove.
