In China, world’s first successful 3D-printed shoulder and collar bone implants have been performed In Xi’an, China, the capital of Shaanxi province, 3D-printed titanium prostheses were successfully implanted into three patients suffering from cancerous bone tumors. The procedures took place on March 27 and April 3 this year and the patients are currently in good condition and recovering with their new, 3D-printed bone replacements: a collar bone, a shoulder bone, and the right ilium of the pelvis.One of the three patients, a 20-year-old woman, was diagnosed a year ago with Ewing’s sarcoma in her right collar bone. Ewing’s sarcoma is a type of small, round, blue-celled tumor. The second patient also suffered from this disease in her right scapula or shoulder bone.And the third patient was diagnosed with cancer in the right ilium of the pelvis. These patients all had malignant tumors which could be life threatening if not removed. Eventually, the hospital decided that operations were needed to remove the tumors and replace the affected bones. This is where 3D printing technology comes in.A clavicle or collarbone replacement is a difficult procedure because of the complexity of the bone. With 3D-printing technology, it was possible to avoid some complications involved in the traditional procedure. Computer imaging was used to design a collarbone in the exact size and shape of the patient’s original bone. The 3D bone design was printed using laser sintering technology which fused titanium powder into the exact shape of the bone. This process produces a strong, customized titanium implant which ensures the implant fits well in the patient’s body.

Let me air my bias — I like high grown coffees that have a fruity character; that usually limits roast level from light to medium.
Additionally, I generally don’t care for unfiltered coffee.

If we are talking post meal (without a dessert) I might suggest a straight shot of espresso. The potent flavor would break through any of the meal that might remain on ones palate. The small volume of an espresso wouldn’t overwhelm one’s belly. Were the shot of Brazilian origin, the acidity would be minimal, minimizing discomfort that might occur.

If we were pairing a coffee beverage with dessert, I would think to compliment the dessert.
A shot of espresso goes great with a dairy based dessert (ice cream, gelato, Creme brûlée.) While drip coffee (pour over or otherwise) pairs well with cake or pie.

I find that natural-process Ethiopian coffees (those possessing blueberry / strawberry characteristics) go great with stone fruit, like peaches. Unfortunately this also results in a great deal of abdominal discomfort for me.

Espresso is usually my go to, for any occasion. Is there a reason to try pour over vs regular drip? Seems interesting.

The booshie coffee convo is the other convo I wanted!  Anyone have an idea of brand?  I tried Lavazzo and Don Francesco and liked ‘em on the cheap end.

Where are you located? There’s an ever growing number of micro-roasters around the US. Maybe your locale has something good.

A pour-over methods (Hario, Beehouse, Melitta, Chemex, so on..) give you finer control over extraction, resulting in a better brew than say, Mr.Coffee.

Aside from the lack of cleanliness that I dislike in unfiltered coffee (and espresso), it tends to give me the sensation of my brain being hooked to a car battery.

Vashon Island Coffee
Ethiopian Kochere
Lemony and tea-like, as expected from the region. It was roasted on a PROBAT, it’s complexity is subdued, likely due to the roasting process continuing while in the cooling tray.
