Topic: A good reason to grind right before brewing.... (6 msgs / 100 lines)

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa September 27, 2008 (AP)
It wasn't just the caffeine that gave an Iowa woman an extra jolt after 
she had her morning coffee. It was also the bat she found in the filter.
The Iowa Department of Public Health says the woman reported a bat in 
her house but wasn't too worried about it. She turned on her automatic 
coffee maker before bedtime and drank her coffee the next morning.
She discovered the bat in the filter when she went to clean it that 
night. The woman has undergone treatment for possible rabies.
Health officials say that the bat was sent to a lab but that its brain 
was too cooked by the hot water to determine whether it had rabies.

There's a lot more to the story if you think about it. Bats consume bugs. I
put up a bat house on the south end of the house and we had No Bugs
afterward.
I couldn't vouch for the bats' ability to distinguish between bugs and crat
cap...

The Rest of the Story...

Ewww - Bob, we needed a spew alert on this one!!!!!
I think that would be enough to stop me from drinking that swill
permanently. Says quite a bit about the quality of brew when it attracts
bats...

Maybe it was simply a fruit bomb and it attracted the bat.  Or a nice 
Sumatra and was earthy and homelike ;)
or....never mind

Uh... there was a bat in the coffee filter, and she couldn't taste
it!? She must be one of those International Delight people.
Nevertheless I feel bad for the poor woman; but even worse for the
poor bat. Such a horrible way to die...
