And now this from the peanut gallery:  I've enjoyed being exposed to the idea that you can roast and "espress" something besides coffee.  I never would have thought you could do such a thing with barley, and I am halfway tempted to try it sometime.  

What it's called is a side issue that is important to some of you, which is OK.  But I'm going to be disappointed when an otherwise interesting thread gets locked down because of a side issue.

I'm confused.  Is it called "marriage" or "gay marriage"?

....enjoying the banter : )

On the Federal level marriage is only between a man and a woman, except in some really really rural parts of America where it would be called "incest".

Oh really? So when it happens to one of Burt Reynold's buddies it's wrong, but when Heath Ledger decides to "break some back" on the mountain it becomes a love story...

Back to barley, I know a guy who wants me to tend his fields in Montana next spring - anyone in?

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

That was one of the more memorable scenes, however I was thinking more along the lines of the brother/sister thing they alluded to.

OK folks. This is the part of the job where I have to remind you to stay on topic of roasting/making espresso with barley, not proper grammar, nor marriage, nor the ATF. Brief diversions are fine, but this is getting out of hand.

I agree with the stand that most people would expect coffee with the word espresso but frankly I probably would have asked the same question in the same way.  I have enjoyed this tread other than the snippyness I had no idea about some of the info contained here.  It has been an eye opener.

Thanks,

Darn, I was hoping to get into federal and state marijuana laws, oh well I will settle for an old fashioned espresso with caffeine please.

Sorry Dana, I can't help sticking it to the man.

Still waiting to hear from the brave that put barley through their grinder and espresso machine to see what they think of it. It frightens me a bit since everything I read uses a seperate machine for the purpose of barley espresso.

@jezekilj: I think this is an interesting idea. As far as barley being a coffee substitute, my grandparents' generation used it regularly in Kansas, where they farmed after they got here from Russia. There was a large community of Russian and Russo/Germans there, and they brought this practice with them.  (It is called "prips"). I have read  posts on this forum for quite a while, and recently joined; I am not an espresso virgin, and I do know what good espresso is, having lived in Brasil for several years... I will experiment with barley and return with the results, probably on another thread.
@ the nit-pickers of semantics, and self-appointed guardians of the English language and the sanctity of "Coffee": Here are a few more questions you will doubtless have fun discussing.
1. How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
2.What is the meaning of "is"?
3.If I use hard water to make espresso, is it REALLY espresso? The "water" is actually a weak solution of calcium and sodium salts, and various cabonates and chlorides. If espresso is defined as coffee arabica + H2O, we may have to re-define the terms.
(Tongue firmly in cheek)

Thank you so much for joining the board.

Long time members just LOVE to be mocked by the very first post of a new member. It is so nice to have you dig up this dead thread, just to insult us.

Thank you.
