Topic: To the Best of our Knowledge: Java Jive (4 msgs / 94 lines)
1) From: Pecan Jim Gundlach
This morning I spent an hour listening to a radio program about  
coffee.  The program, To the Best of our Knowledge, had an edition  
titled Java Jive.  While the program did not mention home roasting it  
was amazingly accurate, to the best of my knowledge, and is a quite  
good introduction to the subject.  You can go listen to it at:
     http://wpr.org/book/shows.html    and select Java Jive

Jim:
I don't know what I would do without my public radio. I think I have four memberships in the Western Stares (California, Arizona, Oregon and Washington).
I will go check it out. I think they podcast that now so I can download and listen on the morning doggie walk.
Thanks for the info.

If you get the chance to listn, it's definitely worth checking out.  I
enjoyed the 2nd half of the show when they discussed  how coffee =
travelled
from Ethiopia to the rest of the world and the too-short discussion on =
the
benefits of caffeine.  
I stayed up until 3 a.m. to hear the whole show.  If I'd only known =
about
the 7pm repeat on KQED . . . .

As I said I thought the show was quite accurate as far as it went.    
For example that in order to get the best from coffee there is a  
immediateacy (SP?) to it.  They noted that coffee should be used soon  
after roasting and drank soon after brewing, they failed to note that  
it should be brewed soon after grinding.  And, while limited, the  
treatment of caffeine was positive and focused on the inadequacy of  
the theories of how and why it has the benefits exist.
