  • You know you are a coffee snob when (FUN)...

    I was sent this link containing some "humourous criteria" to determine my coffee addiction:

    http://www.koffeekorner.com/toomuchcoffee.htm

    That made me think about what real coffee snobs would come up with to describe their vocation. :

    So, bring in your contribution and help a noob: you know you are (became) a coffee snob when...

    You decide which work meetings you will attend based on what sort of coffee they serve.

    You take so long checking out the coffee shops in the shopping centres that its lunch time before you get your morning tea.

    You have an uncontrollable urge to hang over the counter and watch how the Barista makes your coffee.

      what you order is never a standard listed coffee item

      youve driven/walked past 10 coffee shops to get to a place that can make it 80% as good as you do

      you get excited and then disappointed at every fruit and veg sale on green beans

      chaff from your beans doesnt garner an automatic laughing response anymore

        Coffee is preferred over stimulating personal contact, with the gender of your choice ;D

          Your wife says "Oh, theres a new little coffee hole opened in Minimine St" and you nearly fall out of the computer chair spinning around....

          The amount of beans bought is inversely proportional to the amount roasted

            You know your a coffee snob when:

            * You cringe at the thought of instant coffee.

            *You HAVE to take the day off work to get used to your new espresso machine.

            *You consume well over the recomended amount of caffeine in a day because letting your beans go stale is a punishable offence.

            *You skip the tea and coffee isle at the supermarket out of spite.

              * you watch "Star Wars" with your kids and the 2 year old thinks R2D2 is a coffee machine.
              * a bean roast becomes a standard part of entertaining guests
              * you do the "Status Statistics" app on facebook and find out your most-used word is "coffee"

              ...all sadly true

                *Literally everything you buy has SOME link back to teh coffee roasting/brewing/drinking process......everything

                *when you get annoyed when your 5 yo son describes the aroma of your coffee grinds as........"a bit rusty"

                *when you get genuinely really annoyed at that wonderful spring breeze that comes in afternoon and disrupts your roasting schedule

                *when you simply wont buy a coffee, unless you pulled the lever!

                and again.....all true!

                  When you visit someones home and they ask if you would like a coffee...and you say NO, unless youve spotted a grinder, an espresso machine AND checked the roast dat on their beans.

                    # When you cannabilise various unrelated appliances so as to roast coffee with them.
                    # When you know the market value of secondhand British syphons (and grab a bargain!).
                    # When you ruin coffee for your father by gifting him freshly roasted beans.

                    All true, that last one was a cracker! Reckons that all other coffee now tastes stale to him...I told him it probably was ;D

                        It hits you that you have changed the lives of a whole bunch of previously happy (in their ignorance) Instant coffee drinkers who now suffer from the same affliction as yourself.

                            Your coffee grinder costs more than your first car?

                              When youve made both of your parents as picky about coffee as you, even more so since they never used to drink it at all

                              And your excuse to the boss for not using the auto machine at work is that youre trying to not have coffee as often...

                              Or you were the only person at a previous job to bring in your own plunger, beans and cup, bypassing the full auto coffee that was free
