I have a couple of them. I need to get up and clean right now. However, there is a Puma on my lap and I'm not allowed to get up, despite my legs falling asleep!

Sure...sure...blame your messiness on your beautiful cat!

Wait until I tell him what you said...you're in big trouble, now!

I'm not blaming the mess on him; he knows about it, because he watched, yay, encouraged me in the making of it. He just doesn't want me to clean it up right now! He's more interested in holding me down on this chair right now.

Yes. But the question I really want to ask, (in this context) and desire to know the answer to, is "Do Cats Dream Of Coffee?"

I'd ask him, but he only speaks Spanish and I only know English.

A polyglot cat……I'll bet he speaks other languages fluently, it is just that he may not wish to let on that he is capable of such. Indeed, I'm willing to wager that he may know the words for 'fish', 'milk' or indeed, 'coffee' in several languages…….

I know he's far more intelligent then he let's on. Probably even more than intelligent than me.

Rather, we communicate in Catonese. Haha! A language we both understand each other in.

Nope. They're still soupy at the end of a pull. My knock was full and I needed to dump it. These are all dried out now.

Ooooops.

Peering at the screen, I must confess that I did entertain some doubts on the matter, until your explanation put me right…..

By the way, gardening enthusiasts (and no, I'm not one, but several people I am close to are) have informed me that coffee grounds are surprisingly excellent in gardens. Apparently, certain (occasionally shelled) creatures who are wont to leave a rather slimy trail are less than enamoured of the residue of ground coffee....

I'v also heard that coffee grounds are good for gardeners. I suppose if I were one, and had a place to grow one, I might use them in it.

Yes, coffee grounds should go directly into your compost! When I lived in MI I kept a small plot at a community garden and would reserve my coffee grounds for composting. I reallllllly miss gardening.

Well, a very good English friend of mine - one of these wonderful Renaissance types, a woman who is a medical doctor, speaks several languages, books - spilling out of shelves - the sort of shelves where Harry Potter fights for space with Socrates - over several floors of a house itself several centuries old, bakes her own bread, makes her own chutney, is an outstanding musician - well, she stands, fidgeting, hopping from foot to foot, when I am drinking a pot of coffee (prepared by her husband, he - a retired judge - is usually the chef and coffee maker) in her house, waiting for an opportunity to seize the coffee grounds, whereupon the garden - she was my informant on this matter, - is promptly visited and the snails and other unwelcome creatures are offered coffee grounds to add variety to their life.

A recommendation…If Sweet Marias does a Moka Kadir blend roast…you might consider trying it. I don’t know how it would be in a press or pour over…but I really like it in a dark roast (Full City+ or Vienna) for espresso.

Perhaps I'll give it a whirl next time. Thanks for the recommendation.

As long as there are no hints of cat fur (I have enough of my own locally) or coyote poop, I'm sure it will be fine.

Just a hint of weasel toenail...but really quite pleasant.

Guys, guys, guys: In all of the discussion of the rarefied tastes of coyote poop, cat fur and weasel toenail, where is the molasses, creamy honey, smooth coffees I dream of?

Apparently not to be found in Shrink's residence! He enjoys the taste and smell of the wild.

Hey...I can't help it if the coffee beans I taste have certain flavors. Sure, there's molasses, and creamy honey, and boysenberry, and all those other nice things...but then there's that other stuff, too!

I just report it...don'y blame the messenger!

And here was I labouring under the clearly mistaken misapprehension that he was the epitome of an urbane and sophisticated urban dweller, at ease with the satisfying sensation of asphalt beneath his feet (as I am), someone whose world is navigated (as mine is) by the known distance between elegant cafés…….for whom the mere existence of book shops, theatres, restaurants and pubs define what it is to be a civilised member of the human race………...
