Topic: A Burr Grinder is a Burr Grinder ... maximizers and (2 msgs / 67 lines)
1) From: Alchemist John
I agree with the fortune cookie.
As for the 2nd one, you are welcome to disagree.
If you are happy with *$, then no, you should not change.
If you are happy with your car, you should not change.
If you are happy with your grinder, you should not change.
But I will note you are saying to different things.
I did NOT say
"if you are happy with your grinder you should not TRY another grinder".
Trying and changing are two different things.
It could be true - I may be an anomaly.  I am NOT a maximizer.  It is 
probably why I don't have upgrade fever.  I am a DIY'er.  My goal is 
contentment within my means.

Lubos,
perhaps I misinterpret your letter, but it seems that your are calling
"satisfiers" in the coffee roasting hobby second rate because
they choose not to purchase the most expensive,  top of the line
equipment. As a "satisfier" roaster, I'm enjoying the best
coffee of my 54 yr old life! I could afford whatever coffee machinery I
want, but choose not to. Whover wants to be a "maximizer" and
own the high end equipment, more power to them. That's great! I've
learned a great deal from those on the list. But no "maximizer"
should be looking down their nose at us "satisfiers"
ALL of us home roasters are enjoying the best coffee out
there. A fun comaraderie it should always be.
