Topic: Poll -- Link to an actual poll (11 msgs / 210 lines)
1) From: Derek Bradford
I thought it might be easier if there was a web poll to keep track of the
votes, to save everyone from trying to update the email as it filters
through the votes.
The poll is athttp://grinderpoll.blogspot.com/You can only vote once.  Of course, keep the comments coming on-list.  If
there's a problem with the poll, let me know.

This poll is good. Although I would like it broke down to brewing methods
somehow.  Espresso, Chemex, French Press, etc. I don't mean to complicate
things with this poll I just think it is somewhat loaded because the degree
that coffee improves or not has much to do with the brewing method.
Thanks Derek for the web poll. Very nice.

In all honesty, I was trying to maintain the poll as Alchemist John intended
it.  I'm not sure it's as loaded as you think, though...I'd imagine just
about every brewing method would be noticeably better if one was able to
detect a difference.
The poll was a 10-minute hack; I wanted to get it up before the other thread
got too involved and votes got muddled.
Cheers,

Joseph,
       From a statistical point of view, there is not sufficient  
variation to break down the results by another variable.

BTW, the current percentage is 96% had improvement with a grinder 
upgrade.  And of the 3 vote for no improvement, I had  offlist 
responses from 2 of those 3 votes.  In both those cases they wondered 
if their sense of taste could have tasted ANY improvement due to 
various factors.

Hmmmm ... sounds like numbers higher than 75%...  I like this kind of poll,
made it easy to see and understand...
Or as one said "Give it a rest, Brett.  You feel that three-quarters of the
list is with you on the Zass and yet you apparently still feel insecure
about it.  Let it go.  .... "
I wasn't worried others wouldn't agree with me.  I was more concerned with
the misinformation that a great grinder will cost a great fortune...
Thanks John for your analysis; Thanks Derek for your terrific poll mechanism
- well done!
Cheers,

I could have voted no, because I went from a Mazzer Super Jolly to a
Mazzer Major.  However, I consider that more of a lateral move.

A lateral move from really big to simply humungous. Gee, maybe you need to
"downsize" to a smaller Kony! :-)

I was really thinking about getting a Kony, but after reading the
grinder research on Home Barisita, I am much more content with my
Major.
