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

I wonder at the mentality of the tight arsed pratt who first sifted through a pile of crap to get free coffee.

They are stunningly beautiful little creatures. Unlike man, who will without fail find a way to cause immense suffering through abject cruelty to other animals, or indeed fellow men, in all his arrogant ventures. Our capacity for such consistency would be genius if it were not so repugnant. We are a greedy, grotesque species that is never satisfied with nature's gifts.

I guess that most of us would count ourselves out of this but I expect that some of us deserve to be counted in. :? I am happy with Cakey being the final arbiter. :P :wink:

All very well Cakey, but what do they taste like?

Maybe we could do a TMC version of this. Get Cakey, Bruce etc into some small cages and feed them green coffee. Naturally Motoman will be the processing clerk along with any new members. Notwithstanding - seeing as George loves the OBJ, only his palate is sturdy enough to sample the end result.

Oh by the way - what Cakes originally said.

That is a very interesting idea Matt and it seems you have some willing subjects for initial testing. 8) I don't want to appear negative but I would suggest you may have some difficulty commercialising the idea. Perhaps it would be worthwhile to research the demand for such a "product" as it may not be as high as you think. :? :wink:
