Topic: Twisting Dr. Crema's arm... (11 msgs / 200 lines)
1) From: mIke mcKoffee
Just finished roasting half pounds of my June 05 SR espresso blend and
Monkey for next Saturday's espresso play. Chatted with Greg and he roasted
some MM/Sumatra 50/50 post roast blend to bring. That's not the "twisting
Dr. Crema" aka elk hunter's arm part. Thinking about what to roast for after
dinner vac brewing, about to roast last 1/2# in stash Island St. Helena
Coffee Grounds Estate...

Mike,
That isn't fair! Speaking of not fair, I have been so sick, I have not had
any coffee for 3 days. I plugged up my head with a bad cold going up and
down three times flying home from Chicago. I can't smell or taste or hear
anything. I do feel good enough to do some roasting tonight as I am almost
out of roasted beans. My elk hunt is all messed up with one of the big
bosses coming next week for a meeting that I must attend.

I'd think a little hot coffee would clear that congestion right up!

Excellent prescription for Dr. Crema!
Home-roasted, of course.  Well, since he's all stopped up, he can't 
tell the difference -- give him the Ugh coffee ;-)

See? Even though Les' sensors may be impaired, the data processing center
can still appreciate. How many people's expectations are that the F-word
[F'lg'rs] just be a vehicle for artificial sweet and "lightener?" Even the
ersatz coffee itself [Terrible Choice] is a cacophony of flavors for the
Committee of Tasters.
Now, I've got to get with it- I got a couple of 2's of E Sidamo decaf, and
it's time to roast for a couple of old friends. This will blow them away, i=
f
I don't foul it up- first decaf and all.
Wonder if they have a grinder? I've got an extra grinder- I could give them
the SolisMP. I know I haven't ground 20 pounds with it. Bob and Rose are
friends- I wouldn't do that to them.
Enjoy the Bug, Les- you'll feel better as soon as you quit feeling bad

I'm down in Delray (2-1/2 weeks post-Wilma) at Mom's house. Left myn  
Presso there the last time I was in, and hate her little Black &  
Decker whirley-blade grinder, so I brought my Zass Turkish and a  
battery-powered milk frother.  Brought some store-roasted Black Cat  
(was a stopgap at home till my Harrar Horse would be outgassed  
sufficiently for espresso), some of the aforementioned Harrar Horse,  
and some decaf Guat. Huehue.   Mom is not crazy about the Horse--a  
Terrible Choice and *$ House Blend drinker, I think she's not used to  
the lighter roast and blueberry notes. She won't try the decaf Guat.,  
because she is proud of "not needing decaf" even at age 85 (which she  
turned today). The decaf is for me at night, and to give to my sister  
who cannot have caffeine at all.  Anyway, I ground up some of the  
Black Cat and Horse last night and today, respectively, and brewed it  
in the Presso, into some hot frothed half-and-half (heated in a mug  
in the microwave and then frothed). Amazingly, it made a pretty  
decent breve cappuccino (okay, technically a latte macchiato) each  
time.  So I know that next time I'm down here all I need *$ for is  
the high-speed wi-fi.  (mom doesn't want cable internet and never  
even uses her own dial-up).
Still miss my Mazzer and Livia, though.  Back home tom'w night!

Sandy,
Tell your mom happy birthday for me. Born on Armistice Day? 1918 or 1919 wa=
s
the original declaration by Woodrow Wilson I believe. Won't touch decaf -
and a Scorpio to boot, sounds like an interesting lady. Hope she has many
more.

(Typing this from the departure lounge at Fort Lauderdale Airport-- 
the wi-fi network is showing up but doesn't seem to be connecting to  
the 'net--waiter in the bar says this happens a LOT. Will probably  
not get sent till I get home to Chicago later tonight).
Did a naughty thing today. Sis was over (in from VA) and she is a  
decaf drinker. So I brewed up a pot of the decaf Guat. Huehue. and we  
gave Mom a cup without telling her it was decaf. She raved about how  
smooth and chocolatey it was compared to the Harrar (she is not big  
on blueberries).  When we finally broke the news, she shrugged and  
said it was okay--but never to give it to her in the morning "before  
I've had my coffee." (meaning Terrible Choice).  Meanwhile, SIs stuck  
her nose into the bag of Harrar Horse and her eyes lit up. Sigh. I'm  
going home empty--will have to fire up the roaster at midnight on the  
deck!
