OK, so that qualifies for poetry or something.
Let me just go on record and say that I heartily disagree with the
message.  What is this, coffee is the core of mediocrity?
Maybe I just don't get it...
In the meantime, I am still working with my UNIC Espresso machine -
Seems the path from the tank to the grouphead is clogged / jammed /
something.  But I have two other identical tanks, and will disassemble
and go back to the tank I was using from my dead DIVA.
I also roasted some decaf - El Salvador PN Las Ranas WP Decaf - and
that should make for some yummy dinner coffee tomorrow night...
Didn't see any homeless guy sipping coffee.
Nobody was in the cemetary tipping over stones - and drinking coffee.
Nobody cut me off, drinking coffee or otherwise.
The guy in the convenience store said "Thank you - have a nice day",
and wasn't slurping a anything.
Contrarily yours,
Brett

Although it is not a poem, I much prefer this humorours short ... no offense
to tea drinkers, its just humorous and about coffee and tea at work ...http://tinyurl.com/yq9nevEddie

Here's the part I liked best...
I like real coffee. I like coffee so thick you can not only stick a
fork into but you can also cut off a slice and make a sandwhich with
it later in the week. I like coffee so black that when carry your cup
into the room the lights seem to dim. I like coffee so strong that it
jumps out of the pot and wrestles me to the ground, making me scream
for mercy before it finally agrees to climb into my mug and let me
drink it.
This is why when I make the coffee in our office, people know it.
Productivity skyrockets, meetings that used to last two hours are over
in four minutes, and everyone is running around like Benny Hill skit
where the women are running around while a dirty old man chases them.
Thanks,
Brett

Well, OK Andy, thanks - indeed that was on topic!  I just thought it
was a poor piece of - well, uh, poetry...  Yeah that's it.   And for
the Homeroastlistsarbanes-oxley-people - count that as ON TOPIC - one
more on that side of your ledger...
On topic,
Brett

Hmmm- "...sitting in a barn on his friend's farm in Vermont, staring at a
typewriter"
A furnished barn, with lighting, air conditioning, office furniture,
typewriters, typing paper and  chairs. Do they schedule optimum use times
for barns in Vermont, and during office hours the cattle wait their turn
outside?
Has anyone told the horses not to use the sofas as Murphy beds during their
time, and that they may have to continue waiting outside if the humans work
overtime or have a FAC or office party?
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!
