Not suprised, guess I'll need to add soda to my portfolio of 
vice stocks.
Oh, and the comments are quite interesting & entertaining to 
boot.

Do I understand this? Will they tax any foodstuff containing Caffeine?
Fine.

I'd say the idea is unlikely to gain sufficient traction to pass into
law.  If they really want to help Utah's population a tax on sugar and
ice cream would bring in some major $$ to help stem the costs to the
health care system those products impose.
Oh, and we are the number one per capita (per # of high speed
subscribers) state in the Union for subscriptions to "adult" websites.
 So they could tax those as well.
Coffee content: nailed a roast of Something Something Ocana today in
the Behmor.  My poor Hottop B is tired of sitting there unused
watching the Behmor getting all the action.

Living in Utah is especially nice for us because we live way out in the west
desert.  Not much in line of neighbors, etc.
IIRC, the LDS folks are to avoid hot, stimulating drinks.  Consequently, the
consumption of cold caffeinated drinks (subject of the tax idea) is quite
high.  Some people we know drink cases of soda a week.  We used to keep some
caffeinated soda in the fridge for such guests, but it ate through the
cans.  Nasty stuff, unlike coffee.
Coffee is much to our preference (and may not be the subject of the tax
proposal).  Time to roast some of the Black Sun in our stash, sit on the
kitchen deck, admire the view (few signs of human intervention), and drink
some of the Idido Misty Valley I roasted a few days ago.
Thanks to Sweet Maria's for such wonderful coffee and a list that informs
and entertains.

"We used to keep some caffeinated soda in the fridge for such guests, but it

I think there was something rong with the cans themselves.  A. Coors
packages their Barley Pop in deep drawn Al cans with plastic coating on the
interior.
The older "tin" cans were actually tinned or galvanized sheet metal,
soldered together, with crimped end cars. The solder had its own problems-
good enough for the C-Ration containers for the GI's...
*$ sells some of their product in the plastic coated aluminum containers,
some in glass fruit juice jars with the coated steel twist off lids.
St. George is beautiful, but last time through was e/r Las Vegas for Edith's
wedding. Sarah was at the helm with her heel in the injectors as usual. Ray
just had some Ethiopia Sidamo beans and the little Grindmaster blade grinder
for our LV friends. They were all Wowed by the fresh roasted coffee flavor
from their drip pot.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!

We assumed it was a manufacturing flaw, but the story is better if we just
say the soda ate through the cans.  Neither my wife nor I cares for soda and
the cans had been in the fridge for a while.
Most of Utah is pretty spectacular in the scenery department.  We are in a
valley that is about 50 by 15 miles and can see seven mountain ranges from
our decks.  Granted, some are small, with only a few peaks.  My wife is from
New York State.  I am from California.  This is a good place to be.  Bison
wandering down our road have provided a bit of entertainment now and then.
Wildlife is abundant.
Coffee in the metropolitan areas is pretty spotty for quality and we prefer
to roast our own.  Supply runs every few weeks pretty much negate buying
roasted coffee in town and keeping it at home.
Sweet Maria's prices make roasting our own coffee economical as well.  Back
to roasting some of the Black Sun.

Jim which roaster are you using?  If you want to see Hottop or Behmor
you are welcome to stop by the house when you will be in SLC.

11) From: Jim and Tina Wheeler
Mike,
Thanks for the invitation.  We are still using our old FR8+ for most
roasting.  I have long been tempted by the Behmor and would be further
tempted if I saw one.  There would be more fun in visiting with another
person who roasts coffee.  We have few (and distant) neighbors out here and
none of them roast their own coffee.  Some do like our efforts.
Because we live in the south end of Skull Valley, trips to SLC are supply
runs every few weeks.  I may just ask about stopping by during one of these
runs.  Is there a day of the week that works best for you?
