Topic: Visual Clarity & taste (3 msgs / 102 lines)
1) From: Paul Helbert
My friends finally did it...sneaked off to the Justice of the Peace.
Got certified. So, I gave them the big 10 cup Chemex for a wedding
gift that I'd been holding in anticipation of the event. Man, do these
things make clear coffee! At their announcement/housewarming party
yesterday afternoon we drank many pots of Mexican Organic Oaxaca WP
Decaf that I had roasted C+ & FC for them on Thursday. What surprised
me was the lightness of the color in the cup compared to the fullness
of the flavor and great mouthfeel. It looked weak but was not.
This morning I brewed three cups of CR-T-La Minita, FC+, in my 6 cup
Chemex. This time the color was there. I presume it is from the
slightly darker roast. Might not have noticed the light color
yesterday if we hadn't been drinking from clear glass cups.
Oh, and nobody dissed the decaf!

Congratulations on your nuptials and may you find the best of times.
Last time I did it I invited the JP to the house. After accepting our thanks
and gratuity for his pronouncements he snuck into the back yard and chummed
up with the pass-around smokers. It must have provided some sort of cosmic
clarity in the greater sense of it all as the union still survives eighteen
years later.
Cheers.

Not us. But I'll pass the congratulations along. Our wedding was 39
years ago, more or less, and it had to be as her mother directed (in
spite of her father's suggestion that we just take the money it all
was costing and elope).
Our friends who were honored were having part one of their
announcement parties. This was the non-spirited version. We get to go
to the spirited party as well. Mostly different crowds but there will
be good coffee, good friends and lots of laughter  at both gatherings.
