  • You know that you are a coffee snob when......

    Well - what is a coffee snob?

    Is a coffee snob someone who works in the coffee industry?

    Is a coffee snob someone who knows all about espresso, how they are supposed to be made and accepts nothing less?

    Is a coffee snob someone who is continually on the lookout for the Holy Grail and is going to have a hell of a time enjoying the trip getting there?


    Is a coffee snob someone who loves coffee and wants to learn all they can about it to enjoy it better?

    Is a coffee snob someone who loves to drink good coffee in cafes with friends/family/solo?

    Is a coffee snob someone who has the most expensive machine, and knows how to use it, of cause?

    You know you are a coffee snob when you roast your own.

    You know you’re a coffee snob when you think, there must be something better than instant.

    You know you are a coffee snob when you plan your holiday and you think, is there a coffee plantation nearby?

    You know you are both coffee snobs when your wife says to you, ‘you know darling, I think my bubbles are smaller than yours’.

    Which coffee snob are you? Are there others?

    You know you are a coffee snob when..........

    Re: You know when you are a coffee snob when......

    You know you are a "true coffee snob" when you see a new piece of coffee related paraphernalia....

    You then research the item as thoroughly as you can.....

    You try it..... or beg someone else to let you try theirs.....

    You decide (if it meets your expectations)..... you HAVE TO HAVE IT!!!

    The last thing you look at is the price..... and regardless of the number of zeros on the price tag..... you get one!!!

    And when a better one becomes available.... you get that as well!!!

    You are then a very impoverished (but extremely happy) - true coffee snob!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

      I will take for now
      You know you are a coffee snob when..........
      1) Am a coffee snob anyone who is passionate about coffee, any coffee?

      2) Is a coffee snob someone who has "an" expensive machine, and knows how to use it, (I try my best)of cause?

      3) You know you are a coffee snob when you roast your own


      But I reserve the right to add or subtract as I discover that in fact I have more categories than the above.
      Its an ever - changing coffee world in which we live in

        Well......

        For me, being a coffeesnob means never accepting anything but the highest quality, most freshly roasted beans, and then only ground immediately before brewing 8-) - what ever method that might be,

            In your caravan you have stored:
            - a spare Baratza grinder
            - a spare espresso machine
            - a spare Hottop coffee roaster

            Not that I do...

            I keep the spare Hottop and espresso machine in the house until we are packing to leave!

              - When you buy a Presso to make coffee when away.
              - When one of your spare grinders is a Gino Rossi conical.
              - When you get coffee themed presents from relatives instead of socks and aftershave.
              - When your green been stash is >50kg.

                    1) You are perfectly happy with the your equipment at home, until you log onto here and read about someone elses machine / grinder combo and get machine envy

                    2) Paying for the weekly supply of beans ranks ahead of paying for the phone and electric bill

                    3) You sit in a cafe wondering if it is safe to order a coffee, or will you just end up dissapointed knowin you can make better at home.

                    4) Instant is not allowed in the house, at all, period

                          At a cafe you know you will never visit again you purposely wait until the end of the meal , you order a coffee, knowing it will be terrible, just so you can confront the manager, in detail, about how poor the coffee was and why. When he becomes stuffy about it, you ask him what plantation the coffee was from, and when he says he has no idea, you walk out laughing out loud.
