They say you can't get a decent cup of coffee in Columbia since the best is exported. My Columbian friend brought me back some. :-\

(22oz. more or less)

A coffee bomber?

(is it bad form to quote oneself?)

No. Not on the AHA...  ::)

I have one of those eye-talian aluminum espresso-pot jobbies.

It'll produce a 16oz cup of espresso if I pack it right. But I settle for 12oz and consistency. That'll put lead in your pencil.

Built a roaster out of a popcorn popper years back and produced some awesome coffee. And I have about 5-10# of various green beans that are about 5 years old. Any good you think?

I had 5 pounds of Brazilian Sierra Negra that we really disliked 5 or 6 years ago when I bought them.  But recently I ran out of beans and was forced to roast them.  The coffee was actually pretty good by itself, but mostly I used it as filler for other varietals.  My normal technique is to roast 5 batches(popcorn popper) at medium and one at dark to boost the flavor, the Brazilian worked well as the dark roast.

  That make sense in some sort of way. I guess you need to keep the ones paying the most money happy.
