Topic: need a bigger dumpster (16 msgs / 339 lines)
1) From: John Abbott
Wow, I had to throw away my lousy HotTop, now I've got to throw away my lousy 
SM5K. I hope there still room in the dumpster after I threw out all my Wussy 
Central American beans.

Gee, John...  What's your address?  I'm in the mood for some dumpster

Wow John, you might make a pretty good troll if you
wanted to!    :-)
It was the "wussy central american beans" that pulled me
out from my gentle slumbering lurk mode.

No, no - not a troll,  I'm the head curmudgeon!  Curmudgeons don't bait 
traps, they simply grunt, grumble and growl about stuff. 
Actually I'm extremely happy with my collection of gear and beans. I 
prepare coffee for about 25 folks a week who don't know a bean from a 
football and they think I'm some sort of genius and absolutely love the 
brew they are served here.
I don't take any rants from Mike seriously because I know he's just 
doing some early marketing for his Kona farm.  I can only imagine the 
propaganda that will flow when he retires to Hawaii.
I'm really loyal to my Central American beans, not caring if they lack 
the flavor of dirt that some cherish, or that to some tastes they lack 
mouth feel.  They are the flavors that I crave and I'll stick with them 
as long as I do.

Yep - I've got a real machine that destroys the area every time I use it 
(which has become pretty constant lately). The La Pavoni enjoys its 
very own section of counter space.  I'm probably going to break down 
and buy a quality grinder here soon - the Zass just takes too long when 
I'm desperate for a shot and the SM5K has the wrong bean in it.
I'm giving serious consideration to buying the Solis Palazzo because it 
has the features missing on the 5k; most notable is the by-pass chute 
for ground coffee and completely programmable shot dose and temp.
And as for the Wussy Centrals, I've discovered that if I don't wash the 
cups or back wash the machine that over a week or so they begin to 
taste almost as bad as Kona's.   I keep a small bowl of dirt next to 
the LP so I can emulate those really great African beans.

Here's another tip: If you run out of Liquid Amber, you can simply use 
the Classic Italian and place a thin slice of mushroom at the bottom of 
the portafilter before filling it with the ground coffee.

Hi John,
As a fellow lover of those Wussy Centrals, I appreciate your tips above
on how to achieve those exotic flavors others seem to crave.  It sure
is a lot easier and cheaper than actually roasting those beans from the
other hemisphere.

10) From: R.N.Kyle
Mike I believe he got you. That was a good one John. 
Your turn Mike.

11) From: miKe mcKoffee
Oh it's no problem at all. I'll just be sure and have a visual recognition
security system on my Kona Estate that'll shoot Vietnamese Disgusta Stinkers
from a high air pressure gattling gun at Wussy Central Lovers as they drive
up! If they get by that the droids will grab 'em, hold 'em down and force
instant coffee made from Disgusta down their gullets.
Reality check. It's really a good thing someone who goes through as much
coffee as Wandering John doesn't appreciate the delicate balanced nuances of
top high elevation Kona, the best Estates run out every year as it is...
BTW John I really think you missed the mark on that dirt comment, that ought
to have targeted the Indonesian coffees. Thar be some right bright African
coffee out there!

OH, not to worry, I still buy Kona (about 45# last year) because I have  
friends without taste buds :O))   There hasn't been more than a day or 
two that I haven't had some Kona roasted and ready.  As a matter of 
fact yesterday I opened my Kona Extra Fancy from my Christmas order and 
hope somebody drops by tomorrow to drink it. 
Indonesian Coffee???  You mean the Indonesians produce a coffee?  Wow!

wow THIS IS GREAT I haven't laughed so much in weeks.
Reminds me of the Mash 4077 episode when BJ and Hawkeye staged a fight for
Frank Burns birthday.
Keep it up I love it.

Keep this up & you might consider keeping all the stuff in the house and
moving into the dumpster after remodeling, of course) ...
Out of it, work-induced
