I got decaf and birthplace of modern coffeehouses wrong...
But they mentioned nothing about Tom Owen, so it's way off as a legitimate
quiz...

Hi,
Yes very funny, and I had 9 out of 10 also. But I could not find the list of 
correct answers. But from the decaf section they have I did guess that one 
wrong.  3 percent do not tell this to the anticofain people!  not bad, but 
the interesting question is how many percent cofain is there in standard 
coffee?

I got one wrong too--I answered that coffee (the question did not  
specify "caffeine") would increase "trips to the WC" (after all, it  
IS a diuretic whether caffeinated or decaf) when they claimed the  
correct answer was "heart rate" (it is not clear that decaf does  
that).  So I still consider myself as having gotten them ALL correct.

I was right!
Thirty years ago, I knew nothing about coffee. Now I know ten times as much.
It finally hit me last night- I have some Liquid Amber awaiting roasting
(AWR.) Wow! Does that ever make it easy. Compared to the Brazil Fazenda
Ipanema, the L-A has really Stentorian flavor. The Brazil is a really good
shot, but took some trial and error to nail.
Tom said the L-A wants at least a Vienna roast, but I just got into a
rolling 2nd Crack and slammed on the brakes. the appearance of the beans is
a little shy of Vienna.
Last night, it was a Monster right after cooling and a flash freeze. I had
opened up the grinder to 25 for the BFI, and that worked as an excellent
start for this one. Nuthin' but crema after I pre-infused it until I heard
the pump "load up."
As it was resting, the first drop of gold hit the cup and I lit the fuse. No
stalling this one- it just flushed out dark gold crema and settled out a
layer of Nectar under the crema. I don't think my Celtic Critic believed I
could hit several homers in a row- me too. But when you have the best beans
at the outset, everything you do just makes it better...
I had separated a few 14g quantities into sandwich ZipLocs for today, and
that really started things off right this morning. I had pressed them flat
last night but they were slightly "loose" this morning- must be the CO2
outgassing overnight.
What a treat. I'm an espresso junkie, and I definitely thought it would
never happen. My original mission was to prove espresso was a misteak in
brewing coffee.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!

They didn't specify Farenheit or Celsius on the temperature question
either!   Tricksy!

7 of 10, Maria Theresa, coffeehouses, decaf.

13) From: Marty Wooten
Nice little quiz. I made a lucky guess on the "modern" coffeehouse question=
 and guess I know a little more about coffee than what I thought ;o)

I did exactly the same, including missing the same question.  I really

I got 8 of 10;   Like Brett, I missed the decaf and modern coffeehouse

That was fun!

I got 7-10, and all the misses were because I 'thought it over' and changed
from the correct answer....

You and me both, Dave. I missed 3 as well. Who knew about Vienna as
the birthplace of the modern coffeehouse?. Also, I say coffee makes
for more trips to the WC, no matter what else it does, and the
percentage of caffeine thing was bogus. I still think that answer was
wrong.

Absolutely. I think we should come up with our own 10 questions. I will

Me, me, me!
(Actually, it was a lucky guess - I just imagine Vienna and coffeehouses as
being one and the same...)
But I did miss three - can't remember which three, though... brain isn't

21) From: Dave Kvindlog
I only got 7 out of 10.  Missed the decaf, coffee house birthplace, and
Vietnamese coffee.  Not bad for only starting this hobby 6 months ago...
But I DID know what a WC was.  For those of you who aren't familiar with
this British term, here's a humorous lesson:
---------------------------
An English lady, while visiting Switzerland, was looking for a room, and she
asked the schoolmaster if he could recommend any to her. He took her to see
several rooms, and when everything was settled, the lady returned to her
home to make the final preparations to move. When she arrived home, the
thought suddenly occurred to her that she had not seen a "W.C." [water
closet or bathroom] around the place. So she immediately wrote a note to the
schoolmaster asking him if there were a "W.C." around.
The schoolmaster was a very poor student of English, so he asked the parish
priest if he could help in the matter. Together they tried to discover the
meaning of the letters "W.C." and the only solution they could find for the
letters was for 'Wayside Chapel'. The schoolmaster then wrote to the English
lady the following note:
Dear Madam:
I take great pleasure in informing you that the W.C. is situated nine miles
from the house you occupy, in the center of a beautiful grove of pine trees
surrounded by lovely grounds. It is capable of holding 229 people and it is
open on Sundays and Thursdays only. A large number of folks attend during
the summer months, so it is suggested that you go early, although there is
plenty of standing room. This is an unfortunate situation, particularly if
you are in the habit of going regularly.
You will no doubt be glad to hear that a good number of people bring their
lunch and make a day of it, while others who can afford to go by car arrive
just in time. I would especially recommend that your ladyship go on
Thursdays when there is musical accompaniment. The acoustics are very good
and everyone can hear the slightest sound.
It may interest you to know that my daughter was married in the W.C. and it
was there that she met her husband. I can remember the rush there was for
seats. There were ten people to a seat ordinarily occupied by one. It was
wonderful to see the expression on their faces.
The newest attraction is a bell donated by a wealthy resident of the
district. It rings every time a person enters. We hope you will be there in
time for our bazzar to be held very soon. The proceeds will go towards the
purchase of plush seats, which the folks agree are a long-felt need, as the
present seats all have holes in them.
My wife is rather delicate so she can't attend regularly. It is almost a
year since she went last. Naturally, it pains her very much not to be able
to go more often.
I shall be delighted to reserve the best seat for you if you wish, where you
will be seen by all.
Hoping to have been of service to you, I remain,
The Schoolmaster
