The very reason I am on my way to the "Ranch" in Oregon. I MISS MS MINI...
plus I miss my La Valentina. I simply cannot survice with the s... that a blade grinder produces, regardless
of how you shake, rattle and roll the suckers.
I just decided I would not drive all the way, this new hip gets hinky afdter too long in the car, so I am in Corning, CA, the home of olives plus I have DSL...
have a great turkey day.

My wife is now a believer. For Mother's Day I bought her a coffee =
roaster. Apropos of the last sentence, it should also be noted, we live =
in Hawaii. So for Christmas I offered her a weeks vacation in Hawaii =
alone while I go to Vegas. Don't know if that will fly yet.
At any rate she has a once a month meeting at Starbucks before work with =
some other faculty members. This morning was the monthly meeting. She =
took a thermos full of our coffee to the meeting so as not to have to =
drink the Starbucks. She has arrived. I am so proud.

My wife went to the mainland for Thanksgiving. Naturally she insisted I =
send her with our home roast. I sent three different types with her. She =
called the other day to tell me The Sumatra Gayo Mountain was burnt and =

Kenya Kora Peaberry. She called back to say it was better but still =
lousy. It suddenly dawned on me she was using a blade grinder and a $10 =
Wal-Mart pot at her Father's house. She wants to come home now. Don't =
really know if it's me, Rocky or the Bodum Santos she misses.

I sent my mom a home roasted blend on her birthday. She waited a week
and then when I talked to her on the phone she said, "I got it ground
today but will drink it tomorrow." I didn't ask if she ground ALL of it
at once. This was my first home roast as a gift. I think I need to send
freshness info next time. Although she isn't a "high taster" so might
not really matter.

I think that would depend a lot on who makes the coffee at home, Barry.
Take me, for example.  Tall, dark & handsome though I am, nothing - 
absolutely nothing - has ever elicited looks of open envy and naked desire 
from various other women in my life like having my wife tell them that the 
first thing I do every morning is make and bring her a latte.  The looks 
could boil an egg.  Soft boiled, anyway...

Jan thinks my morning ritual is a continuing effort to spoil her. The notion
works quite well in my behalf, but the truth is that it is almost with
complete selfishness that I continue my behavior. That moment when she slips
from her dreams into the realization that it is me kissing her ear and the
look of pure joy covers her face, quite simply makes my day worth stepping
into. When she notices her "just perfect" coffee on the nightstand and the
compliments ensue seems the perfect segue to my business day.

Well said, Tom.  This would, I believe, be an excellent example of what the 
founding fathers called "enlightened self-interest."

I have to make Cappos for both of my girls (wife and daughter) or I am
in trouble.  My Pug BJ is my little helper and he gets the left over
froth from the steamed milk.  If he doesn't get that I am in trouble
with him   Today I frothed Egg Nog.  It is a much greater challange to
get micro foam, but doable!  Have a great Thanksgiving.

My wife let me know in no uncertain terms that we ran low
on roasted beans the other day.  Her morning press pot was
in jeopardy.  This was like the first time ever, it has been
raining a lot here lately. (men, always have a good excuse
ready!)
When I got home from work, I had to dust off the Rosto to
get both feet out of the dog house.  I even roasted some
JBM for repentance. From now on, I will not forget the dire
importance of my duties!  I am not complaining, I brought
this one 100% upon myself!.  :)

Heh, my Pug just stares at me while I built cappas before
sulking off.  Now I understand.  Duh, I had no clue..
Thanks Les!

Happy Thanksgiving Les!  The egg nog idea is also new to me.
I bet frothed egg nog is a whole lot better than flat egg nog.
I will definitely try this out this season!  I still haven't
tried "eggs in a cup" yet either..  I guess one benefit of moving
slow is that I'm not at risk for "coffee burn-out".
