Topic: OT: Analogies, was over-roasting Kona (30 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
I couldn't agree more, Seth, based on both good and bad experiences of
my own! But mixing booze and good coffee strikes a nasty chord in me
due to an experience I had last Christmas. I had just arrived on one
sister's house and went to a lot of trouble to make her a really good
cup of coffee, using my own grinder, and my own beans, and my own moka
pot, all of which I had carted along with me. I had no sooner set the
cup down in front of her and turned my back when another sister, all
fired up about a recent trip to the carribean, poured some rum into
the coffee. Needless to say, that cup got dumped. So mixing booze and
coffee, though I'm assuming you were joking, brought back those
memories and, though no fault of yours, my feathers ruffled a bit.
Different points of view. I know my sister with the rum was, in her
point of view, being generous and a good guest, but from my point of
view, I was excited by fussing over the preparation of a really
excellent cup of coffee and letting my sister sample it. I was
disappointed when the coffee was ruined.
But again, I agree, both scotch and kona coffee taste MUCH better than paint. :)
