Out of the Blue

Thanks for the grinder recommendations.... in looking over what folks sent along, clearly most people are using the chopper type, rather than true grinders. Funny thing is, I'm sure I read somewhere a long time ago that true grinding is preferable, but now I can't recall for the life of me what the reason for that would be... I'm guessing it has something to do with the bouquet or something like that (doesn't it always?), but I'm thinking that if I can't taste the difference in the coffee, I shouldn't be worried about how the beans are chopped (especially since it's so much more convenient this way).

What's his name on 'Good Eats' (on the Food Network) explained it much better, maybe it's on that site.

Alton Brown, the episode was "True Brew". He recommends a blade grinder, but (from reading the transcript) he skims over grinding entirely and just says that the $20 grinder "does fine by him". He does use an electric kettle instead of an automatic drip brewer though.

Of course, I don't drink coffee, so I'm most certainly not an expert.

The blades on your spin-grinder go so fast they actually burn the beans! This is on a micro-split-second level of course, but it happens...this is why you will never ever see a blade grinder at any espresso stand or any other professional coffee house: burr grinders only!

Hehe .. yeah Enya, "Porn is best left for the experts."

And as for the amygdala, its also the part of the brain responsible for the fear emotion .. removal of the amygdala renders rats unafraid of pain stimuli.

I think the reason that the grinder is better than the chopper is that the grinder makes the coffee particles a more even size. Apparently there is an ideal water volume--to--brew time--to--coffee amount ratio, and I would guess that the various sizes of the particles would alter how much each particle was 'brewed' resulting in an imperfectly brewed pot of coffee. What's his name on 'Good Eats' (on the Food Network) explained it much better, maybe it's on that site.

Then again, I don't drink coffee, so I could be full of crap.

Yes, someone has gone and done it... filed a court case over the halftime show.

http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/entertainment/7883797.htm

It's crap like this that occasionally makes me want to see a loser pays judicial system.

I'm guessing that the complaintent: A) has no children, B) never stands nude in front of a mirror with the lights on. Otherwise she should probably start off by suing herself for "serious injury".
