In case you're not familiar with the term, a "sink shot" is an espresso extraction that doesn't go right. Most folks refrain from drinking these, but don't pour them down the sink; there is a better use for them.

Not sure about "better" use, but YMMV.  I prefer the sink.

I've long been known for making "spousal Americanos" with my sink shots.
This "expression/expulsion" of coffee would give the civet cat stuff a run for the money.
In Europe, they'd just freeze dry the liquid.
Sorry Jason.

Thanks for "injecting" a little common sense into this thread.  ;-)

Well, I searched "anal" on the forum, but did not find that particular usage, though many threads .  I guess that we are all obsessive, anal, in our own ways :)

thanks for sharing Andy...I guess...not sure I neede to see that though. :) I'm with Rob on the use of sink shots.  My family members couldn't tell a sink shot from a god shot.  If it's for me though, it ends up in the sink, because I always make mine last in the session.

Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!

To each his own, I suppose- but that seems just gross :) I'll spare you all of an enema pun- I don't want to make you the butt of my jokes.

It is regrettable that the days of good taste are dead. In those days, if someone referenced such disagreeable tripe it was ignored and died on the spot.

Clearly I've grown too old for the times.

Will someone kindly bury me?

You'd need quite a few sink shots to satisfy these people. I actually watched and taped the show out of morbid curiosity, and it seems they do 3-4 coffee enemas per day using what looks like about a *liter* of coffee each time! Of course, neither actually drinks coffee because it's "toxic" when taken in *that* way. <snark>

The coffee enema segment was paired with another on a woman who grooms her cat using her tongue and is addicted to eating hair. Lovely. Do yourselves a favor and never Google Image search on the term "bezoar"...
