Well, I entered a chili in the VA Tech Dept of Chemistry 1st Annual Chili Cookoff.... It featured Buffalo meat, a whole slew of spices and the secret ingredient... My own homeroasted coffee.... (I used and Indonesian bean that I thought fit well) Suffice to say it was a brilliant success and took 1st place out of 21 entries! The coffee in fact went exceedingly well and really filled out the body of the chili.... I encourage everyone to give it a shot. Thanks for all the advice, Ken Get back to school stuff for them and cashback for you.
