    After years and years of some of the worst “flightline” coffee in the history of mankind, love of my life and I tried something Alton Brown suggested: We grind our own. If you grind your own, you already know what I’m saying. If you don’t, give it a shot. Pop over to Wal-mart for the $10 grinder. Then to Starbucks or whatever DECENT gourmet coffee shop is nearby and get a pound of your fave bean. Then grind.

    I’ll give you a week with this bet: You will never, ever drink Folger’s or whatever canned ick again unless you’re stuck in a snow drift and it’s the only source of heat.

    Merry xmas sis!

    I’ve been considering getting a grinder anyway, simply because I don’t have a “normal” coffeepot anymore. Just the espresso|cappuchino machine Chris got me last Christmas.

    You can make coffee with it using regular grounds, but really, you’re supposed to grind it extra-fine.

    Did you catch “Feasting on Asphalt”? Chris wanted to watch it (I think he’s got motorcycle homesickness), but we went on a cable sabbatical right at the time it was coming out.

    Merry Christmas to you and Mamacita and the girls as well!

    The grinding thing is true. Once you begin to grind your own you’ll never go back. It is so much better! And organic is even better!
