Way to go Cathy, That is certainly snobbish, when you do not share with =
blood relatives. I've learned who appreciates and who does not. I quite =
sharing with those that can't tell the difference between good and bad =
coffee.

 I say we are not snobs, but enthusiasts. A snob is very guarded
about the obscure objects of their desire. They enjoy  being  part of a
very
exclusive "club" and are not happy about sharing their interests with
the
masses.
Angelo, perhaps you are an altruistic enthusiast. I am a snob. Not only
will I not share my roasts with the masses, but even with some relatives
who do not exhibit the level of taste worthy of my coffee!  My daughter
and son-in-law can actually drink the swill they get at the bagel store
and the gas station.  This disqualifies them from ever receiving my
home-roasted gold (except if I happen to have some stale leftovers,
since they can't tell the difference!)

I'm the same way with my in-laws.  They think instant coffee is the 
greatest thing and my coffee tastes "strange".  There are some of us 
who will do the extra work to make good or even great coffee.  Some 
people could care less and don't seem to have the ability to tell the 
difference.  I don't feel like wasting my time on them.   On the other 
hand, there are people who know they are enduring the best they know 
about and want better.  I'm willing to put some time in to help them on 
the road to coffee snobbery.
Even snobs have to reproduce their snobbishness for it to survive past 
the current generations.
