    New Coffee Snob

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Got a mate that I have awarded "Snob" status based on madness alone.
    He called in for a visit and after 4 double espressos (of which he gargled) watched a roast, then I offered him some fresh ground beans (straight out of the roaster) to smell and he snorted them ;D

    Sent him home with a breadmaker and heat gun and 1.2kg of BeanBay Nicaragua and hes already done his first roast. 10 mins to FC and pulled at 14 mins (better than my first attempt).

    Anyway hell be joining here shortly any ideas on a good handle ?
    Hes a Pom and his regular daily fix was 12-13 doubles ::)
    and his names John ;)

    Cheers

    Chris

    Re: New Coffee Snob

    not to be pedantic...well actually to be completely pedantic .... the combo of Hyper and POM as you say makes Hypom, but then it creates the prefix Hypo- which is Under... BTW I saw a commodore one with HYPO on their number plate... not sure that is what they meant???

    how about Munted?

    I think the idea is that some members like their handle to reflect their identity and/or interests (cf Speleomike, Javaphile). *Some might even surmise that you are/are interested in coffee and/or horses.

    In saying that, please dont draw too many conclusions from our handle ;)
