Coffee Grinders

I went to buy coffee the other day, and I decided to get it ground at the store because our burr grinder at home takes too long.

They had three grinders.

One was for flavored coffee only, which makes sense because flavored coffee is nasty. I don’t get it. It makes about as much sense as spraying lilies with perfume.

The second was for regular coffee.  That’s great.  No problem there.

Can you guess what the third one was? If you guessed “decaf” then you, like me, are wrong.  Why would anyone care if their decaf got mixed with the caffeinated coffee? It’s not like they’re trying to have an after-dinner cappucino and don’t really want to stay up late or anything.

No, the correct answer is:

“Organic”

Of COURSE it’s “organic!” That way, the higher-echelon beings who spend more money to get pure, healthy, holistic food that’s untainted by modern agriculture don’t have to sully their magic beans with the plebian ones.

    *snigger* Organic, of course, how stupid of me not to think of that. :)

    During our last snow panic, the last milk on the shelf was the organic whole milk – which is fine for me coz I drink the unadulterated stuff. I just found it amusing that during shortages we’re reduced to drinking the “best” stuff on the shelf. ;)

    But what about the flavored organic coffee? Which grinder does that go in?

    Ah, see.. I was going to guess organic!

    I only buy organic when it’s cheaper than the “regular” (or is that inorganic?) product. It saved me 20c/lb on apples.

    I noticed that “Organic” was in quotes.

    Actually, I think all the coffee is the same, just labeled differently. (Duff, Duff-lite and the newest flavor: Duff Dry)
