Sure enough, it says, "the process was also used to hide negative aroma and taste characteristics of the coffee." :(

Awe, common Tom.

He was wearing a mask!

Seriously. I was thinking the same thing. On top of the horror of everything else going on, so sad to see someone put themselves in harm's way to make a living. But in many corners of the globe, it is better to die before 65 from the hazards of your work and feed your family than die much younger because your parents didn't have a way to care for you at all.

This world has a long way to go yet. :|

I don't think I would try more than a ½ a teaspoon just to say I've tried it. :mrgreen:

Looks like Malaysian 'Cowboy Coffee' to me. :roll:

The filter does look surprisingly like a sock...

All right, you're scratching it right now
Cuttin' the record back and forth against the needle
Back and forth, back and forth, makin' it scratch
But let me tell you something
Don't try it at home with your dad's stereo
Only under hip-hop supervision, all right?

It's not as crazy as some of the things seen on this thread before but here goes.
Recently, I visited a friend's office which is a rent-a-space for those who work independently but don't want to work at home so there are office suites which rent out cubicle or enclosed room to individuals. It's a nice setup they have there until I came across this...



One thing is clear, "light" roast is more popular than "dark" roast even though they both look like poured from a same bag. :?

Maybe the folks keeping the machine topped up know that the light roast crowd value freshness, so are putting less beans in the hopper so they're more fresh!
Of course, because they didn't put light roasted beans in the light roast hopper that means we are limited to only providing a few points for effort.

You forgot the other two options.... people emptied the 'dark' and it was just refilled, or since it's the same coffee they refilled the dark first and ran out of coffee before filling the light side the whole way

Hmm..., I'll have to ask my friend about that. Anyway, the crux of that image is "different" coffee beans. I've been gotten by a coffee retailer recently when they put same roast in both medium and dark roast packages. :x
