I was in dire need of coffee and asked if anyone wanted anything from Starbucks. My co-worker asked if it would be alright if I take a bag of beans to get them ground. She had bought a special blend for us to have in the office. She told me to wait while she checked the coffee pot. She had to find out what kind of filter it was so I could tell them.
Umm, excuse me?
Apparently, the filter determines how the beans should be ground. Cone shaped or cup shaped, etc. Never heard such a thing.
Also, coffee cupping is the equivalent of wine tasting. And like wine tasting you taste it and spit it out. Seriously...where am I? Who are these people?
