    Sugar Cane Denim

    Pretty standard, ‘modern’ assembly method for jeans. the front panels and back panels are pre-assembled at the fly front and back crotch separately so that you end up with 2 bigger pieces for the final assembly. This allows for good handling of the back yokes or the the front pockets and fly front details. the final assembly starts with the inseam from one hem to the other hem with a free-arm or arm-down 2/3 needle felled seam chain stitch machine - as a consequence the crotch seams between front part and back part don’t always align perfectly. Sometimes this can be deliberate for heavier denim as the number of folded layers of denim are tricky to sew over cleanly. The bar tack on top of this tricky area ‘bolts’ it down and gives extra strength. with the front and back panels joint at the inseam to a single piece, the last bit of the final assembly is to chain stitch the outer seam and ironing the seams apart flat. the very last part work is then hemming and waist belt assembly with belt loops attaching, bar tacking, etc.

    Thanks! we knew it was going to be a gamble, but with all the furniture and stuff in place it couldn’t turn out to be too bad. still got a few kinks to straighten out, though - worst of them is that table and chairs not matching well enough any longer…

    Many nice pairs and final postings! I decided not to bother TCB with a final submission as my pair isn’t really up to scratch. However, I did (& do) enjoy my pair and will keep wearing them, intending to post further updates here… I managed to build a weaving shed and a new kitchen in this pair up north in Scotland. speaking of - here’s the finished kitchen: and now in use…

    Managed to finish tiling the walls… also, the final wash before final pics.

    The only downside with hand grinders and manual lever machines is that they can make good shots - one at a time. It works fine for me throughout the day and even when making another one for the wife every now and then, but entertaining visitors or guests with four or five shots at a time is too messy for me…

    3 tiling sessions, 1 tile cutting cutting session, another tiling session and one grouting session later… final touch-ups tomorrow and then we start with the wall tiles…

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Yes, they are called Moroccan Mix and I’m going to do the walls with Casablanca Mix. But for now the whole floor tiles are done and I need to cut the partial floor tiles and then start the grouting…

    The Bacchi is something that @volvo240thebest had recommended in the past - took me a while to get and I still haven’t used it. I couldn’t justify a Comandante. Quite happy with my Knock AerGrind. And it’s designed in Scotland. The wife is happy with her Zassenhausen and her Porlex, when traveling. I do weight the coffee beans with a Timemore, but I haven’t really used the timer function to measure extraction time or started weighting the resulting espresso, yet. Maybe I do start that one day…

    Got a proper one, too! Overall, the tiles are level, but I f*ed up the self levelling screed layer and now have tricky areas. In addition, some of the tiles seem to have thicker edges - so there is some lippage going on. But my assistants keep telling me they don’t mind…

    There are a few manual lever machines in the market for quite some time now and the ROK, Rocket and Flair seem to be getting the biggest hype over the more recent years. By the looks of it the Flair seems to be the most complete for a price point that gets you a regular machine, though. I also have a standard edition AeroPress and a Bacchi Carioca stovetop somewhere buried in Berlin that, for some reason, haven’t started checking out, yet. Here in Scotland I’m using my Stagg pour over set-up and an older small electric Bialetti Moka Express. I’ve not really used the the electric Bialetti much in the past and came to find the results lacking over the traditional stovetop version - will have to bring the stovetop one over from Berlin next time. between the pour over, the stovetop Bialetti and the ROK I should be all set in Scotland and maybe I’ll find the motivation to play around with the Bacchi and the AeroPress…

    Thanks @Thanks_M8 - it’s going to be lively & colourful! No one will notice if/that the tiles are not exactly level…

    @MJF9 no way of knowing with the ROK - there’s no pressure gauge (or electric heating like at the Flair Pro or Flair 58, but these are at an entirely different price level). Allegedly, reaching the pressure or at least getting very close to it is not an issue. If James Hoffmann’s tests and reviews are to trusted this technology is more than capable of producing some nice shots. I only had had mine since Xmas, but for about £150 (for a new one) I got a big improvement over my Mokka Express - haven’t done AeroPress - and I’m happy. Though it’s easy to under or over-extract… We have our own electric micro-grid on the island which made me shy away from getting a proper machine, so far.

    Got to do some catching up with the thread… spend most of last and this year in my pair setting up a weaving shed in the yard and remodelling the kitchen. maybe 5 washes in.

    A latte in the morning… it’s a bit messy with pre-heating the portafilter and the brew chamber, but it’s been a lovely Xmas present!
