1) From: Allon Stern
Conversation with my 5 year old, Joshua, this morning:
J: Dad, I want to roast some more coffee tonight.
A: well, I think I have enough coffee roasted at the moment.
J: We should roast some more of the one we used the last of yesterday.
A: Ah, that was the decaf. I still have enough decaf, that was just  
the last of that bag.
J: We should roast some dry process coffee.
A: Dry process? Why do you want to do dry process?
J: Because that kind has the most chaff.
A: You're right. Dry process does have the most chaff.
J: I really like to do Idio Misty Valley. I love to do the ethiopian.
Note that while he doesn't drink the coffee, he does help me clean  
the chaff screens :)

2) From: John Despres
Very cool, Allon. My six year old, Nicolas, also likes to help clean up. 
Could because I give him a couple bucks to help since it's not one of 
his regular chores. He doesn't get paid for chores. We feed him instead.
And Nicolas doesn't drink the coffee, either. "That's for daddy's, Daddy"

4) From: Coffee
My three-year-old is fascinated by the roasting and the brewing. I  
don't let him get too close to the roasting... but he gets to push the  
buttons while brewing. He really likes the vac pot. He's had an  
occasional sip and seems to like it, but that's probably because dad  
likes it ... But I'm not going to feed coffee to a three-year-old, he  
really doesn't need to be any more wired than he is normally!

5) From: Lynne
Brilliant! I love this kid!
btw, when my kids were little, they used to drink what we called 'kid's tea'
and 'kid's coffee.' Was basically a tiny bit of either tea or coffee, mostly
milk & some sugar to taste. Wasn't a huge amt of caffeine (they also got
lots of sleepy-time tea at night, lol) and they didn't get it every day.
Wasn't a big deal - but then, I'm half Italian... enough said.

6) From: Bill
Allon, excellent post.  That's amazing!  keep up the good work!
not all the DPs produce more chaff.  That's a function of polishing or not
after the drying.  I've had a few WP centrals that could easily rival a DP
ethiopian.  I think that the Guat Agua tibia had a ton of chaff.
but that's cool that a 5 year old knows what dry process is.  and that he
favors it.  get that kid a cupping spoon! ha ha.

7) From: John and Emma
You know Lynne sounds like my household growing up.
I'm Hungarian and for as long as I could remember, when I visited my dad, I
always had Hungarian coffee with breakfast. I remember having this before my
dad left and I was 4 at the time. As a result I have been a coffee lover for
ever. Simple form of Hungarian coffee is Vienna or Espresso roast mixed with
hot milk or cream (50/50 split) and sugar.
Always loved this coffee as a kid and was never able to make it right
myself. Like most things it tasted better when someone else made it. My
tastes have changed as they do for us all.
My dad was also the person who when we were sick gave us a shot of Canadian
Whiskey (Rye) just before bed. Boy, have times changed. Think of what people
would say today.
It's really going to be neat to see what our kids do when they get older.

8) From: Bonnie Polkinghorn
You guys are all so lucky.
I get to roast when my kids are all in bed, after 9 at night, if I can stay
awake that long!  Otherwise, dinner would never get cooked, etc.  I
sometimes roast on the weekends during the day, but since there are 3 little
kids, they are more interested in playing than watching mom roast.
I must say, my 4.5 yo girl and my 7.5 yo boy love to drink coffee or
lattes.  Always decaf.  Always with plenty of milk.  My almost 9 yo boy has
never shown an interest.  My little girl has always wanted to drink my
lattes, I have a very cute photo of her drinking a latte at Yosemite
standing on a big tree trunk from 2 summers ago.
When they all get going in the pretend kitchen, however, they always bring
me cups and cups of pretend coffee, just the way I like it, with plenty of
pretend biscotti that they spent all day baking.

Merging two threads, my 3yo tasted the coffee slushee the other day  
and liked it.
I cut him off after a couple of sips, though, since he had a  
strawberry daiquiri (non alcoholic, of course) coming - the wife is a  
master daiquiri maker, though always non-alc, since she doesn't drink.

10) From: Lindsay Murphy
Sounds like what my grandmother used to give me when I was little (and
I'm also half Italian, BTW).  Of course, her coffee was Eight O'Clock,
brewed triple-strength in a percolator pot, which she would let run for
hours until the resultant brew was the color of tar and thick enough to
stand a spoon in.  Throw in some milk and a massive spoonful of sugar,
and you have the next best thing to nuclear fusion in a cup.  Two sips
and I was wired for the rest of the day...

I've heard that, "thick enough to stand a spoon in."  Is that a figure of
speech, or was it literally true?  Could you indeed stand a spoon in it?  I
can't even imagine that...

12) From: Lindsay Murphy
By the time she was done with it, it was pretty viscous - particularly
with the addition of the non-dairy creamer she became fond of in her
later years.  A spoon might have been a little heavy, but it would
definitely hold a toothpick upright, and granulated sugar would float on
the surface (!).
Of course, in my adult life, I encountered a very similar brew as
hospital coffee.  I wonder if that's why I'm immune to the stuff...

Probably much better for the kids than pop and candy. Can teach them a bit
of history at the same time if you want to...
