Topic: Turning Down Coffee Free Coffee (2 msgs / 50 lines)
1) From: Dave Kvindlog
I'm a regular at the local auto repair shop.  I drive my cars till they
die.  The one I took in today has 182K miles on it.
So I showed up this morning with my car to get a couple of new tires
installed, Zassenhaus and briefcase in hand.  The owner notices my Zass, and
wanting to show me appreciation for my repeat business, he goes into the
back room and tries to give me a new 1# bag of Arabian Mocha Sanani whole
coffee beans.  I politely thanked him, but declined, telling him that I
roast my own coffee.  He responded by saying, "then to you this must taste
like old motor oil."
He had no idea how close to the truth he was...
I then made a bee-line to the office, where I immediately ground and brewed
some Costa Rica Coop Dota Dry Process in my AP.  Yumm.  It pays to be
finicky.

If you're a regular there, you should roast some Yemen Mocha Sanani  
from Tom's and gift it to them.
Don't forget to include the SM URL :)
I found myself chatting with my endodontist about coffee, so I  
brought him a bag 'o beans, Sumatran. On the next visit, he reported  
that he'd had to go buy a grinder, and that it was the best coffee he  
had ever had. He's been checking out SM, and I think he might be  
getting a roaster soon :)
