yum. we've finally taken the plunge and gone the route of grinding. Got a hopper style grinder though, so I can do a couple days worth at a time, or just one, depending what I want, and it's a uniform grind everytime. I love it.
Caution, you can become disappointed after a while once you have to stop for a coffee out on the road. heh heh
The smell of fresh roast alone calms me. Each morning my wife wakes up a little earlier than I and grinds a cup fresh for me and sets it up in the espresso
yeah, I can only imagine. Almost a tasty as the coffee served in a gas station I reckon.
During my ill spent youth, a friend and I played a bit of a dirty trick on a third friend with some 151. We had dropped acid a while before he came over and we planned on drinking this Bacardi 151 rum. For those who don't know, while on lsd, you don't feel the effects of alcohol as much as you do usually.
And so it was that we three sat down acting all hurlyburly with the dupe and the bottle. Half way though we we're having a difficult time to keep from laughing too much and giving the whole thing away. By the time we neared the end of the bottle, he was hammered and we taunted him with jokes about his manhood and his clear inability to hold his liquor.
He couldn't figure out why the heck we we're up and lively while he was ready to find some floor to curl up on. heh heh Once he pass out we did his makeup for him and tied his shoes together that sort of thing.
Once he woke up the next day, he was damn confused about what had happened. He thought is must be cause he didn't eat much, that he was tired, that maybe he was getting the flu. We never mentioned a word about the acid to him. Though we went to great lengths to find a way to bring his drinking inabilities up in conversation often.
Good times, good times.
My brother and I did similar with moonshine once....the stuff we made was 95% by volume...(I guess that would make it 200proof)
This friend we had invited, called us sissies when we mixed our drinks 1 inch in a tall glass and fill up with mix...
Thinking it was store bought gin because it was in a gin bottle he wanted his drinks half and half.....and we obliged him
For all of you who have never had moonshine, you can't tell how strong it is in a mix.
Needless to say after three of them....he slept on the floor for about 8 hrs and woke up with the worst hangover
Usually the lack of inpurities makes an alcohol less prone to cause hangover.
We used to put it in a fruit punch and thought it must be all the fruit juices that replace the electrolites pissed out the night before. heh heh
I've noticed that there is not a very strong alcohol smell in high proof alcohol for some reason.
