Topic: Alfred's tradition (6 msgs / 144 lines)
1) From: J.W.Bullfrog
Since I won Alfred's tamper, I want to offer up six coffee book's  as a 
library  tradition.  What I mean is that if you get this tradition,  
read what you want of the books for two months, and then pass them on 
somebody else. The books are:
Buzz -- .  The science at lore of alcohol & caffeine - Stephen Braun
The perfect cup -- Timothy James Castle.
Coffee -- Kenneth Davids
Espresso -- Kenneth Davids
Home Coffee Roasting - Kenneth Davids.
Coffee its history, classification and description -- Joseph Walsh; this 
is a 1894 book
after some suitably undetermined time, I will pick the winner in some 
unspecified, possibly random way.
yada, yada, yada, off list replies.

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the juice of aribica that thoughts acquire speed,
the lips acquire stains.
The stains become a warning.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

Ben,
I gather that you no longer need all this support - having mastered
the repeatable God-Shot. :0)    I think this is a great tradition
however being a geek-guy I could never confess to having read the
instructions!
John - loving life in the slow lane.

Thanks, but no.  I have all two of the Ken Davids books and really
should read them :O) but the "Buzz" is intriguing in the title -
-booze and caffeine combinations - more wide awake drunks I suppose.

I read the sections that dealt with the effects of caffeine on the body, 
and how it metabolizes. That was interesting.  Also, the book that's 
possibly older than you, is interesting from both historical and coffee 
information perspective.

And the winner is.......
Ahh, bit of a story.
Frank Nelson, who responded first, has volunteered to try to scan the 
1894 book to preserve its contents, so Frank will get the books first.
However, once I droped frank from the list, Rick Carragher was chosen by 
random.org as the next to get them. So, I'll send the books to Frank, 
who gets it bit more time than 2 months (if needed) to do his thing, and 
then Frank will send them to Rick. If Frank is sucessfull, I'll try to 
find somewhere to post the book. (Yes, I believe that the copyright has 
expired).
