I'm no poet, but your first lines sounded like poetry to my tin ear.
So I converted your post to the poem below:
I hate roasting coffee..
when there is no breeze..
to blow away the chaff.
Honestly, I just roasted
a mixture of 350 gr of UGH
130 gr of low quality Columbian
and 86 gr of Kona.
Nets me a pound
of better-than-super-market-specialty-coffee
what they call Kona :)
The chaff is horrendous.
No breeze
so when I hit the roast with the hair drier
to cool it
in less than 2 minutes
I had visions
of one of those clear glass 'snow balls'.
You know the kind
you shake them up
and it snows all over inside.
There I was
right in the middle
fighting a chaff storm.
Lots of chaff.
I never wanted to make
a chaff collector.
The wind just blows it away!
Now I need
to roast some horse
but I am waiting until
the wind picks up a bit
here in Lake Havasu.

I like the image of the chaff-filled snowglobe.
Here's a haiku:
I can't understand
Why someone would use Kona
In a robusta blend
My wife had to chime in with her own Haiku based on the burlap coffee sack
gracing our kitchen wall:
Stop my Husband please
I have a sack on my wall
He has gone crazy

An amazing thing!
The chaff switftly blows away -
Neighbors think it's snowing...

To your wife:
You should be happy
You have wall to hang sack on
It holds the roof up.
Ok, I'll go back to lurking now.

I like the burlap
Like an itchy eggshell for
Caffeinated yolk
