    What has happened to me, I used to be easily pleased!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    At the start of December 2008 I was happily enjoying my pre-ground Gloria Jeans coffee made in a plunger with milk frothed by one of those battery operated stick things. I found this site around that time and within 2 weeks I had my gaggia classic and grinder - within 2 months I had upgraded my grinder to a Rocky and within 2.5 months my first lot of green beans to roast my own.

    What have you people done to me?????? *:D *;D

    There really should be a disclaimer on this site warning of the dangers.

    Make sure they let you know beforehand so you can prepare coffee for them all.

    cc2, wait untill you start going to cafes and pointing out the bad coffee to your friends.
    My wife refuses to go to a cafe with me unless I know they make a good coffee.

    My wife almost refuses to go to a cafe with me because I take it too seriously, she cant just enjoy herself now.

    cc2, its an awakening - you just never knew better before CS, I know I didnt. The best part about it is that you have a whole CS community of *similarly interested individuals at your disposal to learn from, all for free *:D
    Dont worry about your friends as they too will see the light...Just encourage them to follow it and Im sure this will be no trouble when you start banging out coffees better than they cant get from down the shop. * ;D

    Youre on a new journey now, your own and you will be pleasantly surprised. *;)
