Subject: Grinder and fresh roasted beans
Ok, I got the Starbucks Barista grinder after all. I've just never
gotten into espresso, and don't know if I ever will, so I figured I'd
just get a good one for coffee. The Barista Burr Grinder was on sale for
$89 so I picked one up Wednesday.

Along with the Technivorm, I get absolutely excellent coffee now.

My favorite has been Starbucks Sulawesi but I've been thinking of what
people have said here, about fresh roasted beans. I don't know how long
it takes Starbucks to get their beans from the roaster to the stores, or
how long they sit there before being sold. Maybe 2-4 weeks? But someone
said that beans start losing flavor within a week after roasting.

So today I went over to The Village Roaster here. They roast 3 times a
week on M, W and F.

They had a Sulawesi of their own, so I bought 1/4 lb of it to try.
Excellent! If this one sets my new level for a "10", I'd have to say
that the Starbucks Sulawesi is a "9" now. And these fresh roasted beans
cost less too. I think Starbucks Sulawesi is around $12.50 a lb. These
are around $9.50 a lb.

Of course these guys probably aren't spending that other $3 a lb on
socialist correctness.

Good stuff!
