  • Addiction to coffee and the making of it

    Unfortunately I am joining the throngs on this forum and becoming a touch obsessed with the art/process of coffee making. I cant believe I am about to put down $40 tomorrow to buy a very ugly looking crazy popper to add further clutter our small flat. More difficult to believe, however, that the non-coffee drinking better half will even allow me to indulge in this passion (especially with the ongoing maintenance requirements of the 5 month old...).

    My question is, do the highly addictive qualities of caffeine have anything to do with the coffee making obsession that drives people to regularly smoke out the neighbourhood with a popper, or spend more on a domestic espresso machine than many would spend on a family car?

    Hi Jase...

    Nah.... we are all just crazy

    Seriously, coffee is like any other hobby which gives great pleasure and satisfaction to the participants.... and like all other such hobbies, the amount of effort (including production of smoke in our case ) and the money we spend is probably out of all proportion to the benefits in some peoples eyes (those who dont share our passion....)

    My response to those people is - life is too short to miss out on something which you feel very passionate about - so go for it!!!

      its the relentless search for the perfect cup. There is always a variable to tweak to make it better. its the thrill of the chase. every sink shot makes the great ones taste better. The caffeine is part of a vicious circle. It keeps us awake thinking about roasting/brewing/drinking coffee. when we put our ideas into practice, we are then kept awake thinking about it again.
