Topic: monday morning aha moment (37 lines)
1) From: Gary Foster
My wife finally gets it... I think.  I've hinted at some "coffee  
battles" with my wife before, so you know she gets upset if I mess  
with her coffee addiction.
We had family over for a family dinner on sunday and after dinner I  
made a pot of fresh roasted (that morning) Yirgacheffe in the  
pourover.  Everyone raved over the coffee and the pot disappeared  
almost instantly.
Fast forward to this morning.  We've been drinking the SM's french  
roast blend that I roast weekly for a couple of months now and my wife  
really has gotten accustomed to it.  I get up this morning and make  
the usual pot of her FR blend and after tasting it, she goes "this  
isn't the coffee we had last night, is it?"
Normally that's the sign of an impending "you changed my coffee again"  
complaint, so I very calmly explained that no, it wasn't, it was her  
normal french roast blend that she likes and I have learned not to  
mess with her morning coffee.
She then batted her eyes at me and said "I think we need to start  
drinking the coffee you made last night, I like it much better".  I  
was floored :)
So, I guess I need to buy more Yirg.  So far, the ones she likes the  
best are the Yirg, IMV and some Brazilian Morenhina Formosa that I  
picked up.  I'm quite happy with her tastes, lol.  She really seems to  
like the heavier bodied coffees.
