Good fun! Thanks icke. :lol:

Edit: I just read some of the other things by The Oatmeal and this guy is really strange! And weird! And wonderful! The one on Badass of the Week, Nikola Tesla is worth a read for sure.

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

Although different beans react differently I think that's a pretty good estimate.
