Topic: Thanks, guys... (11 msgs / 257 lines)
1) From: Al Raden
Thanks a lot for ruining one of the pleasures of life - a long leisurely 
breakfast out, with several cups of 'good coffee'.
We went to our favorite place this morning.  Haven't been there in many 
a moon.  Ordered my usual.  Drank one sip of coffee, and thought "self, 
this tastes like warm bilge water."  Didn't take another sip.  My wife 
accussed me of being a fanatic (fortunately, not the first time... but 
that's another story).
Couldn't wait to come home an make myself a hot cup of freshly roasted 
(yesterday) Kenya AA in my Press Pot.  Ahhh..., now that's coffee.

That's okay Al, my wife now recommends that we skip coffee at the end of
a restaurant meal (unless we're at a really fine place) in favor of
having a cup of the "good stuff' at home.  
When I had to travel on business last week, she insisted that I leave an
adequate supply of home roast to see her through my trip - she obviously
was going to miss the coffee more than me!

Al - a classic sign of an emerging (or possibly established) snob (not sure 
where you fall on the other criteria but would guess that you are at least 
at the STO level).  once i hit the point of finding other coffee conmpletely 
undrinkable, and thus annoying my wife by wanting to short circuit a sunday 
brunch out, i started brewing in my vac pot before leaving and bringing my 
home brew in a large thermos cup out. you just have to get used to ignoring 
the occassional look of disapproval from the waiter or waitress as you sip 
your thermos mug at the table.

Oh, I can assure you that I'm well on the way to snobdom.
I have a HW Gourmet, a Poppery I, 2 Poppery 2's.  A Gaggia Classic for 
espresso, a press pot, a single cup drip cone, a vacuum pot, an ibrik 
for turkish.  A Solis 166, a Zass, and a whirly blade (good for 
Turkish).  So, 4 roasters, 5 coffee makers, 3 grinders, and a used 
partridge in a pear tree.

The motorcycle club I belong to meets weekly on Sunday mornings. I've
become known for my idiosyncrasies... I not only bring a thermos full
of coffee to breakfast (I initially explained it by noting I'd made a
full pot, didn't have time to drink it, and so brought it along so it
wouldn't go to waste 8-)), but also a small bottle of pure homemade
Wisconsin maple syrup - the surest way to improve pancakes / waffles /
French toast that I know of. The restaurant is very nice about
it--we're the main component of their Sunday morning business.

yes you are definitely disqualified for the STO and are in the realm of true 
snobbery.

that's a great idea, and i suppose that a restaurant certainly would be 
forgiving of a customer bringing their own syrup since it actually saves 
them money (as opposed to their own coffee on which they lose a potential 
sale!)

Al,
    Your CSA certificate is being printed :O)  You can still enjoy
breakfast.  Pull a couple of shots and drink them back to back before you
go. The flavor lasts.  You can dally over a glass of fruit juice now and
enjoy your breakfast.

Believe it or not, I've been known to bring my own grinder, beans, brewer
and sometimes electric hotpot to heat my water to certain restaurants...
Thinking the Cona Vac would be perfect for such excursions. (Don't have a
Cona YET, good excuse ay!)Not many will allow it, but some do if you get to
know them and ask in advance.

Mike,
    A Cona doesn't travel well - you might want to try the Bodum.  Now the
problem is, when you light the spirit lamp to bring the water north in the
Cona - do you have to sit in the smoking section? :o)    I can picture it
now - "Yes, I'd like a table for four, yes I know there are only two of us
but I brought my Cona and grinder - and hey that reminds me - can you seat
me near a wall outlet?"
    A Cona doesn't do well when its thrown either :o)
