Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

  • Armenian Co-Owned Coffee Website

    Someone just sent me this link in an e-mail:
    http://www.seattlepi.com/food/416341...tml?source=rss

    It's an article about a website that focuses on small-time coffee roasters of high quality. And as an added plus, one of the owners is named is Elise Papazian. If you enjoy nice coffees you should consider supporting the site by buying coffee from them now and then (or exclusively).

    The website is: http://www.gocoffeego.com/

    Roasters I recognize: Klatch, Barefoot, Ritual

    Have you tried their coffee yet? Any recommendations for a good espresso roast?

      So they just sell beans on the internet? Not sure if this idea will fly, people are already too lazy to brew their own coffee.

          I've ordered espresso and single origin coffees from Klatch Roasting. I've also been to Ritual in SF and had espresso -- it actually may have been a ristretto. Both excellent.

            Ordering coffee online is common place as is grinding coffee at home. You can buy a grinder for $20 and the taste difference is very noticeable and it doesn't take long at all. You can grind a pot's worth of coffee in about 5-10 seconds. And whole beans will keep longer than ground coffee.

            My only concern with the business model presented is how they are to keep repeat clientele. Anyone can go to the roasters' websites and buy direct -- though I don't think it would necessarily be cheaper.

              Starkieeeee.... what'd you do to me? I started out ordering one bag of Klatch Belle; I was going to get the World's Best too, but then they'd both get stale, so I just got Belle for now. But, I couldn't stop there and I just ordered a french press and a canonical burr grinder too. Damn you. I hope it makes an appreciable difference from the cheapie bar grinder for espresso.
              My dad refused to grind even w/ my easy bar grinder because he said he couldn't taste a difference and it wasn't worth the trouble (*slaps her forehead*), so I'm on a mission now w/ the burr and french press. Wish me luck.

                Haha. Very cool. It'll definitely make a difference. A good grinder is especially valuable with french press because you can reduce the amount of sediments that appear in your cup. Even grinding is always a good thing. Even for $100 it won't be perfect but you'll be happy. Let me know what you think when you get the coffees! I just bought a bunch of coffee from Whole Foods but when that's done I'll probably order from the site.

                  Re: Armenian Co-Owned Coffee Website

                  I sent an e-mail to GoCoffeeGo inquiring about the advantages to using their service. I received a response from Elise Papazian.

                  Her major points:

                  1) Same prices as the roasters.

                  2) They've negotiated better shipping charges.

                  3) They have shipping specials, surprise gifts, and discounts.

                  4) They have currently 15 different roasters represented so you won't have to worry about maintining 15 different accounts if you want to order from different roasters.

                  5) They've set up a Netflix-style automatic shipment feature.

                  6) Their website is fun.

                    Excellent points. As a drawback though, I noticed that they didn't have all of Klatch's stuff listed, though it seem like they had the most popular. I assume it's likely the same with the other roasters.

                    I loved the tip about having it shipped to a work address! It made my shipping $5 instead of $7.95! And it looks like it might even be delivered today, though I ordered last night. I'm happy so far. Can't wait to taste the results of my little coffee related shopping spree in a couple days.

                    I had been buying from Starbucks, so I am sure this will be better. The freshness alone should make a noticeable difference I would think.
