Heh. Yah, but how often do we get to sling around weird units of  
measure? Which brings me to:
Are there any coffee-industry unique units of measure?
Anyone?

Bags? Maybe not uniform from one region to another.

I know it's untrue, but coffee could get the rating of (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5)

Coffee bags can be confusing yes, IIRC 100, 132 & 150# depending on origin.
But hell, "cup". Could be as in cupping. Or not. If someone says they use X
grams per "cup" it means nothing unless first defining the cup. It could me
8 ounces sure, cup could also mean ~4 ounces Sometimes 4oz being a tass cup
though tass also often used referring closer to 2oz. IIRC Tass simply being
Turkish derivation meaning small cup. But how small a cup! Also a cup can be
6 ounces (restaurant industry standard X cups per urn in 6oz units) or have
seen for instance a carafe marked 12 cups when volume measured coming out to
5oz cups so who knows. Cup is also a shape. And while all mugs are cups all
cups are not mugs. Cup be confusing:-)

Mike,
I don't know at this time if I'm off topic or not. I have pondered much on
the cup issue.
My point here is one of the reasons I watch or lurk here is for your posts
Mike. Not only are you point on. You are almost always funny and
entertaining at the same time.
Thank you for this. This list is never dull with you here.
