Poll: should I buy a Floyd Bed? [Apr. 12th, 2019|06:40 am]

I'm moving to a new apartment in June. I will buy a new bed to keep for at least 10 years. It needs to be sturdy - I'm not a heavy human (about 135 lbs) but sometimes I have a friend over for enthusiastic romping, so my bed needs to be well constructed and preferably not squeaky. Also I will likely move another 2-3 times while I own the bed; it needs to withstand being disassembled.

I'm thinking of the Floyd Bed. It's made in the US, from actual wood. I'd be using my current innerspring mattress, possibly with a low profile box spring. I'm unsure as to whether I'd also get a headboard.

So, is this bed:

Awesome
8(42.1%)
Questionable
5(26.3%)
A definite nope
4(21.1%)
Too complex; answer in comments
2(10.5%)

What concerns am I not thinking of?

Dinosaurs
3(12.0%)
Awiens
4(16.0%)
Severe weather (can't hide under bed)
5(20.0%)
FRANCE

Coffee conundrum [Apr. 12th, 2019|04:19 pm]

Anyone buy some really fantastic local coffee in bean form, that you grind fresh every morning, suddenly brew with none of that soul lifting intensity that it did when you first opened the bag? That happened with a very expensive bag of coffee and I don't know why. We keep it sealed on the counter and use a plain old grinder. It is bourbon treated and now just tastes like regular coffee whereas before it had a robust flavor.

Is it the grinder? Storage? Humid climate? Any insight on how to solve this problem is welcome. I'm trying to figure out if the solution does not involve a $100 coffee grinder.
