Topic: New Years eve coffee (2 msgs / 58 lines)
1) From: Peter Zulkowski
Last evening we had an 'alternative new years party' at our church. I 
crossed out the label on one of those big green Folgers decaf plastic 
pop top containers and wrote 'not Folgers' on it.
Filled it with a nicely roasted blend of Ethiopian Sidamo decaf and 
African highland decaf.
Already ground of course.
Brewed it with the Bunn commercial version I got from ebay, which you 
folks helped me tweak.
The thermostat lets the water come through the filter now at about 203F.
Nice.
Also it has a 'slow' shower head, so the water does not race through and 
wash all the grounds up over the top of the basket.
It does make a pretty good cup, at about 4 gallons per hour!
There were some
'great coffee, Peter'
comments as the night went on, and about 15 people did drink the whole 
pound and a half.
Not much was really said until we ran out of the green, and someone 
opened another CAN. (Switched to commercial coffee)
You know, that vacuum packed for freshness stuff?
YUCK.
What despicable coffee!!!
You really get to know how great coffee can be when you  compare it to 
what you had been used to :)
The rest of the new-can-brewed got poured down the sink.
Next time I will bring more of the 'good stuff'
People are starting to appreciate home roasted.

Kudos. It is amazing isn't what so many people consider "coffee". Not
surprised at all your homeroast pre-ground for the party so not even at it's
absolute best far eclipsed the "fresh" just opened can of Foulgers. Now if
you just let your homeroast sit for a couple months in an open air container
after grinding it might compare more closely. Though since you undoubtedly
started with superior greens it'd still likely be better!
