deluxe house blend at the inn in snowflake, ran out of my fresh stuff two days ago;
it is in a silverfoil package, I use one pouch to make one cup in this little tiny drip machine they have here.
got to be at home depot at 6, forgot a dozen electric boxes. today is filled with running the remainder of the wire the inspector wants (read I have to have each room wired for a heater, really stupid.)
when he asked what my primary source of heat was I asked him to look outside at the old trees, he was not amused.  when I told him I was really trying to get off the grid he explained others do not want to so the house had to be ready for the next owner; I decided to just wire rather then really piss off this guy...

5) From: Paul Helbert
By the time UPS got here (nine days is past optimum for a Central), I
couldn't tell any difference between my roast and Tom's Roastmaster's Choice
from last week. I roasted the same day he did and made the comparisons when
his arrived. (Actually I roasted three ways and could tell one of them form
the others. I only had 380 grams of greens and the WhirleyPop only got a
third of that which is too small a load to control comfortably, so that one
went to FC+ while the others all hit the mark at City/C+). This was the
Guatemala: Antigua Retana Yellow Bourbon. I drank a good bit of mine while
waiting for UPS, and although it is impossible for me to be sure, day to
day, I think it was best in the first week. Still, tis a good cup out of the
press today at roast + 12 days.
BTW: Got tired of making just one mug in exchange for all the cleanup, so
bought a Bodum Young Press, 8 tasse (32 oz) with the insulated outer
housing. Half full it makes two mugs, with plenty of room for the
effervescence of a fresh roast. The added bonus is that I can get my hand
into it for cleaning. Sweet Maria's sells some presses this size. They also
have replacement beakers...don't ask :-(
One thought leads to another. Sometime last winter I hit upon a good way to
scour out the inside of my vacuum brewer bottom vessels which are way too
small to get into with a dishrag. Pour about a coffee scoop of salt into the
bowl, add a drop of dish washing liquid detergent and swirl it around. Then
add a few ounces of hot water and swirl some more. Rinse the salt out. Rinse
five or six times with fresh hot water and drain dry. Comes out looking like
new and there is no danger of scratching the glass as from a bottle brush.

Kenya Gethumbwini PB roasted to a C+.  Great cup of coffee.  Not an everyday
cup of coffee, I think I would get tired of the acidity if it was every day.
 But for a few days, it's totally awesome!  I like that even when it's
piping hot you can still taste the acidity.  bill

Sumatran blue batak in the french press.  Not that impressed with it
actually, not much body to it.  I like coffee with body and this is
sorta wimpy.  Nice clean flavors but nothing to stand up to me.  Maybe
it's just not a good morning coffee.

Just got back from the church's men's breakfast and am running out of
the Cameroon, so a one-cup french press was in order ...
This is like candy!  Perhaps our own Alchemist John would be proud of
the chocolate in this cup that is punctuated by the "lemon oil
brightness" that Tom mentions.
I have enough for one more ... should I wait or have it now ... should
I wait or have it now ... gotta go ...

Bureaucracy run amok.  Don't put them too close to the floor eithr, 
might get water in them when you mop the carpet....
Relax, have several good cuppa coffee and think evil thoughts relating 
to building inspectors...
Too bad voodoo dolls don't work.

My favorite book on the subject of inspection was Ken Kern, *The Owner
Builder and the Code*. At least I think that was the name of it. I read it
about thirty-five years ago. Unfortunately Ken was killed when an under
designed structure collapsed on him. I still like his books and agree with
much of his housing philosophy.
Now back to the coffee of the day part of this thread:  I don't remember
this morning's drinks. They were good to be sure, but this evening I opened
a can of sweetened condensed full cream milk and made Vietnamese coffee with
the little metal thumb screw drip pot. I used about a tablespoon of the
sweetened milk for a cappuccino sized drink. I normally do not do sweetened
nor whiten drinks. This could have used a bit more of the milk to get it
like what I had last week in the Saigon Cafe. Interestingly there is very
little mixing of the milk and the coffee until mixed with a spoon. I like to
lift the milk from the bottom and eat it from the spoon, rather than
stirring. The coffee was Mexican Oaxaca organic WP Decaf., roasted this
afternoon to FC/CF+ in a Behmor at 1# (250g) P5 D ++ after start. I hit COOL
thirty seconds after end of first crack. I don't remember the total time but
it is in my notes out in the garage. I think they may have used coffee with
chicory at the Vietnamese restaurant.
Had a FP cup of it straight an hour after roasting and gave my wife a sip.
She couldn't believe it was decaf.
