Topic: My Friend has some problems (4 msgs / 76 lines)
1) From: Jeremy DeFranco
-my friend uses a hand driven burr grinder (make and model unknown). The
first report was good. Great taste. Wonderful stuff. The report I got
today was disturbing. Again, I do not know what equipment is used in
grinding and brewing at the office. The Ethiopian Harar was described as
"smelling like tuna" when brewed. When brewed at the office, different
coffees were thin and weak. When taken home and brewed with a press,
they were fine.
I'm very sorry to hear this distressing news. We can only hope that
your friend doesn't have a neurological problem that is too far gone
to fix....
(deep breath)...Well where do we start...First take your friend to the
emergency room as soon as possible to prevent any further damage from
occurring. Second, never allow your friend to drink mediocre coffee
ever again. He may be in mediocre coffee shock- senses get all out of
whack,
and can't handle great coffee... Administer IV drip of the Horse or
any other SM homeroasted coffee immediately upon first signs of any
subsequent
mediocre coffee shock. Once he has adjusted to great coffee NEVER
allow him near mediocre coffee or mediocre coffee equipment ever
again. This could
result in seizures and episodes of heavy vomitting. Please take care,
and I wish you the best of luck. This is no easy task that lay ahead
of you...
Stay strong, and don't give up!

The emergency action team is in motion. We have a rescue squad moving in 
to get him and his family.
Thanks for your concern.

I love serif...  It's too bad that the web has all but completely
obliterated it.  The Verdanas and Arials have their place, but there's
just so much character in Times or other serif fonts.  Sigh...but I'm
definately in the minority.
Hey, at least it's not blue with contrasting, flashing pink.
