... my wife then points out the expensive roaster and espresso machine :cry:
I point across the street to the guy who bought an expensive, restored '55 Buick. $37,000. Or the guy down the street who had a mistress.
"My hobbies are right here, in front of you, for less than $3,000."

She smiles in humor and acknowledgement.

This thread is killing me! Now I think I need this coffee.
Cost is one thing. But the 110lbs I have in my inventory is another. :(

I couldn't resist a pound of this too. It's sitting in my mailbox. Supposedly a monster fruit bomb.

ASD (Anaerobic Slow Dry) is a relative newcomer to the coffee processing game; at Elida Estate the coffee is picked from the trees and immediately transfered to an airtight container. The coffee sits for 5 days undisturbed, before the bag is opened and the coffee sorted and picked over. Unlike traditional washed and natural processes, ASD coffee has an elongated drying time in an unusual location. Wilford Lamastus sends most of his coffee down to the lower altitudes on his farm to dry, usually for 10-20 days, but this lot is dried up in the higher reaches of the farm for over forty days, until it reaches the correct moisture content. This unique processing system creates coffees with previously unseen coffee cherry flavors and intensity.

"Pay in full or in 4 interest-free installments of $101.25"

Now that's funny. The coffee will be long gone and you'll still be paying for it.

A fool and his buyer's remorse are thereby less soon parted.
