    WTF are you on about here? "Microbrews" is painting with a pretty broad brush. Nevermind. I can't believe a got sucked into the whytroll blackhole.:rotflmao:

    Edit: are you really saying that expiration dates are a reliable cue as to quality degredation?

    ^sounds confusing, but I also feel happy for your relief.

    I'm happy about a huge roadtrip coming up. The wife, dog, and I are driving south! All the way the down to the end of Amurrika - kind of south!

    No - for enough money they'll gladly hand you a bottle, flacon, or 55-gallon drum. In fact, for the Royal Treatment, it can be hand-delivered to you in a Bentley. You do pay dearly for this, though. The same can't be said for Smittys BBQ

    Oh, and I have 6 hours of Classical Christmas music on my computer, downloaded from Amazon last year for $5 (post-holiday closeout, near expiration date). I am going to get into the spirit of fucking Christmas even if my ears bleed from the effort.

    Just saw this post on pre-grinding coffee:
    http://www.home-barista.com/brewing...d-coffee-for-espresso-and-brew-pot-t6722.html

    Not particularly reliable (some dudes doing at home...although for all I know, they may be very knowledgeable or industry people) but some interesting conclusions.

    They have this to say:
    which would explain why why doesn't see them actually grinding any coffee (or changing settings).

    It also seemed that their conclusion was that conclusion was that some beans improved from 30 minutes (or 12 hours for non-espresso) of sitting around after being ground.

    However with their 2-week grinding experiment, they found that the 2-week old grounds tasted better than fresh grounds from beans that had been stored improperly...but were no match for the same (properly stored) beans ground freshly.

    I would say that liberals offend the most easily. The most liberal people I know are aslo the most uptight. Apparently most of America is liberal so I guess it could make sense.

    Yeah well screw you, Mr. Free-Markets and laissez-faire Capitalism. I am outraged that you'd accuse liberals of being easily offended, like we don't already bleed our squishy little hearts out for every worthy cause that knocks our door. Anyway I forgot what the point of this post was but don't do it again!

    That's like saying I don't like cocaine, I prefer sugar. Tea has no kick!
