Ya the extention cord did kind of shock me, no pun intended haha. I was thinking, did they give me the comercial duty cord by mistake?

Really liking the machine a lot. It can handle so much more than I throw at it. My grinder is supposed to arrive today after long delay. Looking forward to further advancment in my quest to become my own home barista. Been so nice NOT going to Starbucks and the others every day.

Nate going to place my order momentarily for more freshness, thank you!

That cord HAS to have some use other than simply to plug in. I think it was designed for a nuclear power plant, or transatlantic communications, or something.

Anyway, I'll be roasting orders tomorrow and Monday, and will mail out Monday. Thanks!

The Ecuador is certified organic; the Ethiopia Illubabor isn't certified, but it's chemical free, most likely. Most Ethiopias are.

I personally wonder how much remains in your cup of joe, after roasting at ~450 for 12-17 minutes, and brewing. In addition, the beans are in the cherry, which is removed. Humph, i need to find out.

Yea, personally I've got bigger problems than potential chemicals in my coffee. It's my lady that wants to see it written on everything!

Do me a favor, write it on the java and guatemalan!

I guess despite removing the cherries, the beans could potentially pull pesticides up from the soil. And even after roasting they could remain toxic. And unfortunately, I think brewing would certainly leach all that deliciousness down into the pot.

But ****ing R0UNDUP is in EVERYTHING we eat, drink, touch and breath anyway. So does my 2 cups of coffee a day matter??

Organic is largely a paperwork issue for premium coffee anyways. Small coffee farmers aren't using chemicals because they are farming the same way for generations. They also can't afford to get a fancy organic stamp.

coffee might prevent skin cancer.

http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2012/0...isk/?hpt=hp_t2

Quote:
Good news, java junkies: Researchers have found the more coffee you drink, the more you may be protecting yourself against skin cancer.

According to a new report published in the journal Cancer Research, drinking more caffeinated coffee could lower your chances of developing basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of skin cancer.

Researchers analyzed data from the famous Nurses' Health Study on more than 112,000 people. One fourth of those studied had developed basal cell carcinoma over a 20 year period. Investigators found the more someone drank caffeinated coffee, (more than two cups a day) the lower their risk of developing this form of cancer.

Scientists noted caffeine seemed to be key factor, because tea, cola and chocolate, all of which contain caffeine also seemed to cut a person's risk.

Basal cell carcinoma is a slow-growing skin cancer. Although it is not as serious as melanoma, it can still lead to permanent damage or death if not treated.

Doctors say this doesn't mean people should be drinking coffee by the gallons.

"I would not recommend increasing your coffee intake based on these data alone," Jiali Han, an associate professor at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston and Harvard School of Public Health, and an author with the study.

"However,” she continued, “Our results add basal cell carcinoma to a list of conditions for which risk is decreased with increasing coffee consumption. This list includes conditions with serious negative health consequences such as type 2 diabetes and Parkinson's disease."

Researchers also noted that this is just the first step; more research is needed to better understand why caffeine cuts someone's risk of developing this form of skin cancer.

New Ethiopia Wote Konga!

This is a berry ambrosia, with loads and loads of blueberry, both in the aroma and cup, and in the cup there are also gentle tarter strawberry and lemon notes. The roast I cupped was a hair darker than I would like, bringing out strong chocolate notes as well, making it reminicent of chocolate covered blueberries.

Has anybody here tried doing the stepless mod to their Capresso Infinity grinder as described here: http://lowendespresso.blogspot.com/2...inity-for.html ?

Or, this similar mod that adds more steps?
http://coffeegeek.com/forums/espresso/grinders/501881

I am really thinking about doing the second one. My Infinity makes a nice even grind, but it seems like notch #2 is a bit too fine for my espresso machine (especially when using very fresh beans) and notch #3 is a bit too coarse. A notch right in the middle would be perfect.

The advantage to the second mod method is that since it still has steps, it won't slip while grinding (with the 1st mod you have to hold the hopper in place while grinding or it will slip).

Anyone do this?

My gaggia is broken Seems to be emitting steam out of the grouphead and sputtering something fierce. Going to disassemble and see if it can be salvaged.

Just wanted to thank a certain someone here who tracked me down, and hooked up a 3lbs of coffee and a grinder to some troops in afghanistan. When looking for a suitable recipient, someone else chimed in with 2 more lbs, and here's what the final package I just sent looked like:
