Topic: stoned (5 msgs / 74 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
It pays to be vigilant. I was running my fingers through my newly 
roasted Harar Horse yesterday and lo and behold, there was a small 
stone--not quite 1/4 inch square. It may have been small, but it was 
probably big enough to mess with my grinder big time.
Anyway, I thought a reminder never hurt.

Yeah, I almost dropped a piece of Colombian concrete in our office's brand
new Maestro grinder..[shudder]...but I did get all over one of the guys for
regrinding some Costa Rican in it. His response was, "well, it didn't hurt
anything." I explained to him that should the unit go south all teh guys in
the office probably wouldn't look to kindly on a request for another
donation for a New coffee grinder. Too many drugs for too long too early in
life, I think.

No problem in a manual grinder - no motor to overload and burn out.

When you "regrind from very coarse to a finer grind in my hand grinder any

If you start out with [coarsely] preground coffee, you're already on the
downhill slide to oxidation and staling of the hydrocarbon compounds that
are coffee. You open the door of the Tijuana cathouse and light the "Open"
sign to the O2 molecules.
How long does it sit in O2 with the initial grind?
If you're not grinding some already-stale ground coffee, and it tastes OK,
why not just stash the beans as roasted and grind them once when ready?
