Yeah, we know you're a rabid anti-frummie, so enough. In case it went over your head, the thing about peeling coffee beans was a joke. And in case you're actually interested in knowing, the minhag of peeling everything is to remove the outer surface which may have been in contact with chametz. And no one is interested in whether you approve of it.

How do you know what I am? I think a lot of things are silly or pointless, however if I ask my Rav a question I accept his psak halacha... no I did not shop for a rav and true he answers me based on my following of the law but within the letter of the law.

He told me not to use my coffee grinder and french press, they are generally on a counter that is exposed to chametz, so I listened.

But so is my laptop and cell phone.. so why should i just not be able to clean the french press ? truth is really it cost me 36$ to buy a chemex and ive been playing with the chemex and it cost me almost nothing to follow my Rav's word "yehi morah rabba k'morah shamayim"

But here he knows i'll listen and not really care and bh im not starving.

RE: Coffee beans I discussed this with OU Rabbi Nathanson years ago.. told me its fine and sbux beans even without P are fine.

I went with big island shliach Rabbi Avremel Chazanow to a coffee plantation he is mashgiach off and watched them roast.

I still think its dumb to peel everything, ein ledavar sof as I pointed out, you'll just continue on a never ending quest see gemara sotah 22b on 7 types of perushim and related commentaries

A friend of mine posted a pic yesterday of grains found in the lentils by a diligent sefardi.

Can I send me a copy

Even when they eat rice, it's an extremely thorough checking of each grain of rice. Some friends say it's not always worth it -- they'll just wait a week.

We check the rice thoroughly but I don't know anyone that ever found a grain in rice.
Not saying it never happens, but it definitely ain't common.

And you better believe it's worth it to check.
Half the foods we make have rice in it one way or another.

Our meats are stuffed with other meats that are ground together with rice. I hate rice plain but it's impossible to avoid it in our foods.

It's impossible to avoid it?
What you mean to say that you use it extensively, in many recipes.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Sounds like you're using fillers.  Try sawdust.

Anyway, Kibbeh doesn't have kitniyos.

Kibbeh balls is a meatball with ground rice and meat inside.
Some people are lazy and just make them full meatballs but it tastes better with rice.

Yeh I know what you were referring to.
Anyways they make special kibbeh for Pesach because the outside is made from burgol.
So real chametz.
Also they usually put pine nuts which is probably kitniyos.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_nut

Seems they are from pine trees and would therefore be the same as other tree nuts and not kitniyos

I want to try to cold brew coffee overnight in a mason jar and pour through a pour over paper filter tomorrow morning.
What is the proper ratio of cold water to ground coffee? ( I only have a bag of pre-ground coffee, no beans)

Recommendations for a coffee grinder that is decent but not too expensive?

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off topic. Unless you're planning to use it for pesach in your office.
