Don't take offence at any comments Mr Dramatist. There are those here who are pretty blunt but don't mean to sound rude, those who like a luagh and then those like Bruce and George who are just old and easily confused ;)


You should be ashamed.:shock: Living in New Zealand has coarsened your sensibilities. Too many stubbies and overcooked steaks from the Barbie is known to have this effect.
Bruce and I provide a much needed gravitas to this forum as is generally acknowledged, and for your information Bruce's intellect is unimpaired, as is mine. A less than perfect control of my bladder is the only sign of my increasing age. I cannot speak for Bruce but I would certainly opt for steering him away from my wife's embroidered cushions. Just as a precaution you understand.

thanks for the clarification, George.

And my bladder does not react at all anymore, for i have stopped with the increasing of my age. Since then i feel always younger... day after day...

just trying to decide if i wish to imitate Button and die a baby or prefer to move to Vilcabamba and challenge some up there.

Either way - always with the best coffee

= the strange case with Button and/or Vilcabamba, the Valley with the dozens of individuals over 100 years of age.

That is all. Go back to sleep.

Indubitably, Bruce and George are much revered elder statesmen. It is rumored that their real names are Statler and Waldorf and that this is a rare photo of them together.

no its still in stock, but the url isn't working properly, so it won't go directly to the site.

I tried it a while ago, very nice, but didn't make me feel younger... probably the locals drink all the fountain of youth coffee and the rest gets exported.

it is in the flesh, not in the bones.
It is in the flesh.

(flesh = pulp, bones = beans)

They eat the flesh and export the bones.
We are idiots. And that is mild, compared to what Luwaks must think of us.

soon i may be selling "home-digested beans"
sounds good?
Who needs cats and birds to digest our coffee?

and so we would be back by the original topic - Alchemy.

at home you may digest in combination with all you want. Intestinal Alchemy (selected, of course)

Cut the middle-bird that's what I say - besides, there's some poetry about eating one's own 'creations' - if you don't get put off by the taste, mind you... :vomits silently in a corner: :? ;)

The question about home-digested coffee is what the impact of the rest of your diet is on the beans, and more importantly to the taste in the cup. I personally think the abundant use of chillies and garlic in the diet could yield a very special coffee ;)

The real challenge will be finding someone to collect the beans after they've exited the indigestion system :shock:

I'll try to rap up (may be) my "topic" here. But i am still interested to know....

Do you guys never wonder, if using coffee differently would be a hit?
Examples:
cooking water with raw beans, then taking the beans out and using the water for a light soup with onions, garlic or coriander - perhaps with poultry or fish

or

using water cooked with roasted beans and after taking the beans out putting some dark meat and spices inside?

did you never play with such ideas?
