Me: -smells something...burning...something burning with a coffee smell-

Mommy: Amarie, honey, d'you want some of this? It smells delicious!

Me: -slowly gets up from computer chair, worried for my Myrtle- What is it? What are you doing?

*Myrtle is the name of my wittle mini coffeepot that I got for Christmas 2 years ago. I named her as such because when she's working, she sounds like "mirrrtle, mirrrtle, mirrt-t-t-le" to me.

Mommy: Making coffee! It's that new strong one that I bought! Come! Have a taste!

Me: -slowly coming into the kitchen, the sheer stench assaulting my sense of smell- Mommy...?

Mommy: -beaming as she pours some of the foul stuff into a mug- Yes, sweetie?

Me: ...What have you put into Myrtle? What have you done? You're burning her-this is burnt.

Mommy: Oh, no, no! This coffee isn't burnt-it's just a really strong roast! The best kind of coffee there is! -proffers her mug to me- Want some?

Me: -retreats into my bedroom and says a prayer for Myrtle- No, thank you! Eew!!!!!

Mommy: -pouts about how her daughter doesn't like shared, burnt coffee-

...Strong roast coffee smells like burnt coffee to your Amarie, dears.

Regardless of anything you do to coffee, coffee retains its primary flaw. It remains coffee. I don't see what burning does that is any worse than that.

Myrtle! I love it!

(I have become a person who drinks dark roasts. Not the super-extra strong kind that people are like "Jet Fuel! Yeaaahhh!" tho... Not thus far... But then I put flavored creamer in it...)
