Topic: CSA nominee ? (3 msgs / 69 lines)
1) From: Dave Huddle
Folks,
Just back from vacation - testing to see if I'm still on the list...
ANYWAY - my wife, (who hasn't made a pot/cup of coffee in more than 16
years, and even reheats a cup in the microwave now and then)
REQUESTED/DEMANDED that I take a small roaster with us on the trip.
So, I packed one small suit case with a FR, a 4 cup automatic Melitta
drip brewer, a Zassenhaus grinder, 2 cups, filters, etc. and enough
green Ethiopian Harrar for the two week trip.
Some evenings, while the wife and kids swam, I stayed in the motel room
and roasted beans.   We started every morning with a pot or 2 of fresh
roasted brew.
Does her REQUEST/DEMAND  qualify her for CSA membership?   (She also
bought me my first two burr grinders, a couple of espresso makers, and
some other coffee related stuff.)

Hmm, refusing to drink the swill found at most hotels would have to count
for something.  Insisting on fresh-roasted, as opposed to simply taking
a couple of jars of home-roast, scores bonus points in my book.  Active
appreciation of home roast should be enough for at least junior membership.
 
There are obviously many different levels within this group, ranging
from homeroast brewer to semi-pro roaster and espresso fanatic.  How
about achievement badges, like in scouting?  We could have merit badges
for pan/wok roasting, popper hacking, roaster inventing, owning a lever-action
espresso machine, etc.

Almost sounds like a purity test for coffee.  Which could be a lot of
fun to write.
Be well,
