Topic: B**** Slap Espresso Blend (8 msgs / 188 lines)
1) From: Mike Chester
Les,
You are right.  I did not think about that connotation at all.  I was 
thinking of a coffee drink that slaps you upside the head.  The last group 
that I would make fun of or insult would be battered women, so I will change 
the name.
In the spirit of fun and holiday cheer, I would like to open it up to the 
group to name my blend.  The deadline is midnight on New Years day.  I will 
send a pound of my final blend to the winner.  Please submit your entries on 
or off list.
Sandy,
I did not include a premium Robusta yet, but it is on my list of possible 
additions. I don't have a clue what profile to use with Robusta though. 
This is only version 1.0.  This is a post roast blend and each component is 
roasted separately.  I believe that your Rocket Fuel is pre-roast blended.
I am trying to create a sweet chocolate bomb of a blend.  I chose components 
that list chocolate as a primary flavor.  I roasted the MM to light Vienna 
because I have heard that bean develops a rich flavor at that level.

I find the name great and agree with your meaning.  I do find people are taking sensitivity way too far in all areas.  A funny directed at a certain thing should not be turned around and say it's demeans something totally different.

Mike,
In coming up with a more socially acceptable name, while keeping with  
your original theme, how about the name: "Upside the Head Espresso  
Blend"?

Mike,
How about Dope Slap Blend?  I think that's probably what you were going for
the first time anyway.
Best,

Think the effect you were going for is expressed in the old Bill Cosby story
where he had just gotten married and wife was giving him grief for going out
drinking with his buddies.............
A friend told him just switch to Vodka and she won't be in your face as much
cause she won't be able to smell it on your breath. So he tried it and it
worked........till he went home and as he said "Fool forgot to tell me, You
Still Staggered........."
Hmmmm....matter of fact would like to nominate the YSS Shot as a drink
name......also brings about images of a big yess along with an arm pump.
