    Re: Had to happen.....

    I Guess its a smart/clever idea but like many items around there are more drawbacks than benefits.
    Printing a document requires you to phisically move the ink across the paper???
    Hopefully Mk II version will see it automatic and a decent holder for coffee grounds.

    But then again, i wouldnt buy one anyway until it could do the equivalent of what my current printers can do.

    I dont disagree that the idea is good and great for environment etc. etc. but lets face it, it has a practicallity value of about 2/10. Almost like fly screens on a sub.

    A little more development and they could be onto something.

    I can see it now, posts on what grinder setting for coffee letters!?! ;D

    Could it be the new coffee bag? Simply add water strain out the paper!

    New forum: Lettering notes.

    Maybe it will work for green beans as well? Could smuggle in some green Kopi Luwak into the country. ;D

    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

    Given that coffee has been used to mask the smell of drugs from sniffer dogs, such letters may attract unwarranted attention from PO or customs officials :-[ ;D

    I dont think that ever worked.
    Even so, these days they detect drugs in many ways.
    I recently saw an episode of Border Security where they x-rayed the bags of a suspicious tourist which, turned out to have coffee over it to try and mask the drugs.

    Speaking from experience TG?? ;D

    I was going to add a "From what I heard.." line before it because I wasnt sure if it was fact, urban myth or Hollywood" but it tends to detract from the potential humour of the post

    Disclaimer: Note the use of potential humour because I know what your next post will be :P

    Irony: This is not a disclaimer.
