Topic: Coffee inticement - Not gonna work (12 msgs / 209 lines)
1) From: Demian Ebert
Afternoon-
I was at a job interview in Sacramento on Friday. The guy I was talking with
walked me through the office explaining where different groups were,
introducing me to people, and so forth. We got to the kitchen and he asked
if I was a coffee drinker. When I said I was (without elaborating) he turned
with a flourish and indicated a box on the shelf and said, "Well, you'll
appreciate this then..." It was a box of Peet's. Pre-ground packages just
for the office coffee maker. I told him that while I was a coffee drinker,
that Peet's didn't cut it anymore because I roast my own coffee. The
funniest part was how he thought that having a box of Peets on the shelf was
such a great thing and might sway my opinion of the company one way or
another... I found it very amusing and so I thought I'd pass it on.

Demian -
sigh... I started to read this without glancing at the title of your
message.
Thought you were going to tell us he was a homeroaster!
Ah... what a coffee wasteland it is out there!

I had almost the exact same experience when I started my most recent
job a couple of months ago. Manager (who's a really nice guy, btw)
proudly stated that the kitchen is stocked with Peet's at his
insistence. It's pre-ground, of course, in large containers. I didn't
have the heart to say anything. Thing is, it wasn't all that long ago
that I would have thought that was cool too. The path to coffee
enlightenment is long, with many stages. At least it's been that way
for me; I remember once when I was a teenager, buying my mother some
"gourmet" coffee as a gift. It was pre-ground, vacuum-packed in little
cans, and came in all the gourmet flavors - hazelnut, vanilla, etc.

David,
So what you need to do is wait for the container to get low and then bring
some pre-ground homeroast and do a sneak replacement early in the morning so
everyone get an interesting surprise!

Pearls before swine; no-one would notice. When you brew coffee into
those tall thermos things, and almost never wash them out, it tastes
like a wet sock no matter how good the beans are.

Amen to that David.  I scrubbed out several months of grunge from some of
the pots at work bue mostly to neglect and lack of caring.  The coffee they
use (pre-roasted but ground on demand) tasted completely different.  Several
commented on it.  Me, better, but certainly not fresh roasted.
Still, I can choke down a cup of coffee.  I have certainly had worse.  If
you have ever experienced instant coffee from a C-rat you need look no
further.  blech!

home roast.  Some people love it, but I've got no converts to
homeroasting.

My boss keeps all the homeroast I want on hand for employees.

That's cool. Some colleagues and I are trying to start up a software
company. When we finally get to the point where we have
funding/offices/employees, you can guess who the coffee supplier will
be. :-)

Funny part of the whole thing is that I could end up working there anyway
(regardless of the coffee). I don't plan on roasting enough for an office of
70. Probably just continue to bring my own in and share it occasionally.
