Topic: Coffee On the Road (2 msgs / 42 lines)
1) From: Sandra Andina
I'm in Mt. Vernon, IL tonight (where the Midwest becomes the South,  
halfway from Chicago to Memphis, my ultimate destination for the Folk  
Alliance conference all this week) at a nice suite hotel. Was a  
roasting fool all weekend--kept that Behmor cranking, with IMV (this  
batch smells like strawberry jam and spiced wine), the rest of my El  
Salvador COE, ditto my Yemen Mokha Sana'ani (no way my Sumatraholic  
husband & son are getting their mitts on that one) and Guat. Huehue  
Decaf. Found about 1/8 lb. leftover Tanzanian Meru, so that gets  
brewed tomorrow morning. I left the boys back home with 1/4 lb.  
Sumatra Organic Gay Mt. (roasted last wk), 3/4 lb. IMV (hope they  
appreciate it), and 1 lb. Aged Sumatra. That ought to hold them till  
the weekend, when my son will be in NC with his improv troupe and my  
husband will be off from work, doing kitty-wrangling and basketball- 
watching duty. If he runs out, he intends to raid his latest brick of  
Bustelo and use the electric moka pot. Ate late lunch (had 2 c. IMV  
and a cappa before leaving home) at a little cafe in Arcola renowned  
for its home cooking and good trucker coffee. IMHO, the coffee tasted  
like ashes. We get free hot breakfast and there are airpots of coffee  
in the lobby--but it's the same Royal Cup drek as in the little filter  
bags of sawdust next to the in-room coffeemaker. Yecch.
Conoissseurship can be its own particular hell.....

And it's own particular heaven... think about how wonderful that cuppa
tastes in the morning compared to what you could be drinking...
