Subject: Thank gawd for coffee geeks and this group :O)
For years, I was wondering in the dark,
bumping into wall, trying to figure out
why my coffee usually sucked, and
where to find out about...coffee.
Thank goodness for the internet,
and especially THIS GROUP
for opening my eyes to coffee,
to coffee makers,
the importance of The Grinder !
and yeah, beans too...
Althought I am not in the same-league
with most-Most of you,
at least I can now actually
drink my coffee without making a face..
My $ 10 coffee "maker" was tossed,
gone is the superdeluxeband coffee.
Like I said, Not in your league,
but, I either use my Clarity ($20 each :O)
or French Press,
a nice little burr gringer for regular,
and the whirlybird for favored,
and admit to still buying beans from
Zabars ( faus Jaimanican Blue Mtn), Dunkin Donuts,
and on occasion, 8 oclock or gevalia/snicker

Anyways, THANKS to you all

Bought a steamer contraption, MrCoffee, at Walt one night wandering
around vacant isles. A hint of taste, and off to a quest for how to
make it better. Without going $10K for an espresso machine and
precision grinder right off, next dearest thing to positive gearfreak
reinforcement is probably going to be roasting coffee. Lots of
interestings things to do in roasting point-of-origin greenbean coffee,
with plenty of variables for poking inquisitive fingers. A 10 or 15lb.
shipment of intriguing 2lb. paperbags individually labeled with coffee
from exotic farflung locales, a year's shelf-life, all for as little as
adding the price of a popcorn popper. Arabics are widely regarded,
with their underlying rich sierra red evident in extruded pucks.

I dare say, most us embarked on the same quest as you, a quest borne
of the same frustration.

It's good to see that you have your priorities straight ;-)
