Want to talk espresso but not sure which forum? If so, this is the right one.

I kind of like the brushed metal (matte) aesthetic of the machine, but I'm sure I'd be shocked to find out what the price adder is for the AMG "trim package"!!! LOL!

Well, I did not see it, I experienced it.

USPS investigations was alerted that three packages I mailed might harbor illicit drugs, now delaying Priority mail 3 day into the 7 th day. Apparently if it smells like coffee it might be cocaine.

I assured the agent that only licit drug is present in the form of coffee and allowed the search of my packages.

What a %#*$ing delay for my precious samples sent out to coffee friends.

aromas remain enticing, and I intrigued, ah coffee!

That's horrible. I wonder if commercial roasters also subject to those searches.

Apparently any postal worker can call out a package for inspection. I turned those in to an indoor mailbox large enough for padded envelopes (as I had coffee shipments in the past), but no more. I will hand off such wonderfully aromatic packages to a person at the post office during open hours in future.

Drug lords use coffee to mask the smell of drugs. What can we use to mask the smell of coffee? :mrgreen:

Pack the %#*$ in kitty litter. Stuff masks odors real nice.

Mylar bags work really well to mask the smell of the contents, especially if you heat seal them.

I had a friend who was working in Guatemala (iirc) with coffee farmers trying to make it so they benefit from their efforts. He wanted to set them up roasting and canning to be able to ship their coffee to the US. He did some research and the customs folks told him they would have to open every can. I think it was so long ago that there were not *.GOV sites where they would teach about graft and bribes and such. :lol:
