1) From: Aaron
Ok, I brought my setup to work for some good coffee.
On my desk, I have my swissgold cup filter.  I have my zassenhaus 
grinder I won on e bay.  Of course I have my coffee cup, and without 
saying, I have whole beans I brought in from home ... home roasted..
They are happy drinking assmell house. I want some real coffee. 
After a few days of smelling the stuff I am brewing up, two of the 4 
others in the office have wandered over and asked questions and smoozed 
their way into me sharing my coffee with them. 
Oh but I get the comments from the peasants....  Look at him, look at 
ALL that hastle he goes through for coffee when he could just open a can 
of garbage like us. (garbage is my translation, but the eyerolling and 
all is there)
I decide to show them a thing or two, ... arrogant prick 101....
I work in a calibration Lab,  I have access to major equipment.  I have 
on my desk now, a scale that can measure to the microgram.  I am using a 
$3400.00 scale to measure the beans to grind and brew... just to twist 
the snotty one.  and just to add insult to injury, I have a scalpel on 
my desk, so Ill throw a bean on the pan, close the glass enclosure that 
the scale has so that the air circulation in the room dont throw it 
off....wait a few seconds. pull off the bean, then shave a bit off of it 
and throw it on again, look her straight in the eye and say... weight is 
important for that perfect cup.
Childish... probably..... fun.. Oh YEAH!!!!

I am sorry everyone. my e mail program burped and multi sended that last 
one... Please accept my apologies.

5) From: Demian Ebert
Now that's funny. But why not weigh the final ground product to the
desired level of accuracy and then brew. Aren't you likely to loose
some beans to the grinder during grinding and thereby throw off the
final weight?

It's ok, I thought you were just demonstrating being an "arrogant prick" 
:-) (Really, this is a joke )

11) From: Aaron
Thanks for the vote of confidence Jerry... and yeah that's the type of 
person I am as well.  Folks tend to love me or hate me, I have yet to 
see an inbetween.....It seems i got several folks now interested in my 
home roasted coffee... .. This could be a good thing,  ie.. if I get 
them turned on to a few of *my* favorite beans, then they will all pitch 
in to buy them,  I am more than happy to roast them for everyone, but, 
If I get a group going, I can buy the beans in bulk, ie 5lb packs and 
save some money on it, and not be stuck with hundreds of pounds of 
greens waiting for me to roast...  Hell.. if it catches on good nuff, I 
can get them to ... pitch in, to buy the hot top ill eventually end up 
getting I am sure...
Seriously though, I have always liked good coffee, and always shared 
it... and it always seemed that, everyone wanted to pitch in to help 
with the beans, so I ended up drinking good brew and never really paying 
for any of it... I guess the expertise making it was nuff to buy them 
over :)  Now that I am drinking REAL coffee and not packaged stale crap, 
it's just soooo. much better.
I am hoping in a year or so, once i finally get a place of my own, i can 
host a big coffee snob event here in jax florida and get as many on the 
list as possible to drop on in and we can have a good weekend party!!
