HOWTO Make a perfect cup of coffee — the science of ferocious black madness

Salim sez, "Professor Mark Miodownik of Kings College Materials Research Group teaches us how to process raw beans to a perfect cup of coffee using every day using a collection of household & DIY implements." This was amazing — I've always wondered about the chemistry of espresso and coffee roasting — I've become a total coffee bore since I got serious about my home apparatus, and this has armed me with many useful factoids for understanding the imperfections in the shots I pull. Also, he uses Monmouth beans, which are all we use at home. They are superb.
