<Snip>
Hmmm, no Official (un or otherwise) CSA ID that I recall. But here's a few
other CSA tidbits from the past...

No I didn't see it, looked like part of your sig, sorry!
Well, that's a more complicated list, and I admit to not knowing much. I
pass most of these as well, and have one more, my wife calls me a coffee
snob now, b/c I refuse to stop anywhere for a cup  - "don't worry hun, we
are only 20 mins from home, then we can brew our own!"

And that 13th step is a winner, for sure.
Last time I was not home to intercept delivery was a hoot! She was
screeching at me. A couple days later, a cup of Classic Mandheling resolved
matter somewhat.

That's just the beginning. Next you will develop a traveling kit for your 
coffee paraphernalia when you are on the road. Hotpot,grinder FP etc. You 
will have coffee only in another list members home. The ultimate for me was 
taking a cruise on a ship that boasted a 4 star kitchen and showing up every 
morning for breakfast with my Zass,FP and beans and having the water bring 
me a teapot with boiling water. Hey Mike I think I deserve 500 pts for that 
one.

9) From: Leo Zick
I have a simple travelling/office kit. a one cup drip cup and filters, and
small containers to carry a couple days worth of beans. No travel grinder
either.. Yet. lol

10) From: miKe mcKoffee
Nah that's normal stuff for old CSA hacks like you and me. I did the exact
same thing just this past February on our Caribbean Cruise:-) Now if you've
followed some of HB forum threads Cannonfodder travels with his lever
espresso machine and grinder, that IS the next step and ditch the Press for
traveling!!!

I have a Bodum C whirly blade (from SM), an Aeropress, one of those 
immersion heater coils, and a digital meat thermometer. It all packs 
very nicely into an insulated bag with an insulated cup and my pre- 
measured and vac packed beans.

I have gotten to the point of packing my coffee stuff first and then 
worrying where to put my underwear. Then I figured it out. I can always buy 
clean underwear on my travels but getting good coffee is problematic. 
Priorities,

I took homeroast and areopress when I went hunting this fall.  I was
40 miles from electricity, but did heat water on the stove and ground
my homeroast in the Zass!

Probably the ultimate would have been to start the fire with flint and 
steel. I bet Alchemist John has done that.

I've travelled with my Elektra lever machine...  When I'm back in
Canada I'd like to have a hardshell case built for my Europiccola and

Ok if we are asking for CSA points how does bringing a Z&D onboard the
ship to roast my own for the entire 7 month cruise?

Are you actively proselytizing?  Have there been any converts?

Oh yes I have a following already, even some that have only heard and
not even tasted my home roast yet. After all the US Navy is the single
largest consumer of coffee in the world (at least I have heard that). I
have people that beg for me to make a pot of my stash instead of just
using the AeroPress. I have the Bodum hand grinder and if they want to
make a cup or a pot I tell them to start grinding. If they are willing
to put out a bit of effort they are rewarded to a better cup than
anywhere else on the ship.
By the time we return home I plan on holding some HG/DB classes at my
house for those that want to learn more. 
Sailors gotta love them, offer them better coffee and you have a line
out the door clamoring to do most anything to get some. HEHEHE

Any CSA Member in good standing can award CSA points any time they feel it
appropriate. All awarded points are of course subject to review by the CSA
PPC. (Preposterous Points Committee:-)
