Topic: Bloom, Family and Travels (3 msgs / 123 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
We're hitting the road in a few hours to go see my step father-in-law for
the last time before the next baby arrives.  He's undergoing some pretty
heavy radiation and chemotherapy for brain cancer.  He's not drinking
coffee anymore, so I'm taking some with me.  They have a Bunn, unmodified.
 What I have is a nice 5 day rested Brazil Organic Camocin Yellow Bourbon
and a just-roasted-at-lunch Mexcio Organic Oaxaca.  I'm a bit concerned
about bloom, especially with the Mexico.  Suggestions on how to
successfully brew without a blow-out?  Or, should I punt and take my SS
French Press?
Thanks,
Jason

Take the press, or prepare to run descaler through the bunn at the  
very least.
If the bunn has a "pause and serve" feature you could start brewing  
without carafe in place , turn off machine after about 15 seconds,  
wait 30 seconds or so, and replace carafe, turn machine back on.   
this will help with bloom.  I suspect FP to be a better option  
IMNSHO, we will be visiting my cousin's mountain home this weekend,  
there is an autodrip there but will be bringing my Chemex/ electric  
kettle/ Solis maestro, no reason to ruin  good homeroast in a dirty  
ol' drip pot.
Congratulations on the new family member on the way, I wish your FIL  
a full recovery.

Jason,
I'm not the expert that most on this list are, but I would recommend taking
the press pot. There's lots to be said for having available the equipment
you know and can control. At the very least, bring the French press with
you, in case the Bunn doesn't work out.
Just my $.02,
Brian
