I've heard good things about the ones they hand pick out of goat poop.

A friend with very refined taste in coffee is having a birthday soon. Her husband said that she'd probably enjoy really good coffee beans, but neither he nor I have particularly refined coffee taste.

If I were to look for good coffee beans that a person with refined taste would enjoy, where would I look, and/or what would I look for?
find a local roaster/retailer, and unless the friend is really picky about it, maybe grab two or three bags of (whole bean only obviously) whatever's really fresh. do a single origin, a mid roast blend, and maybe a darker roast since you dont know what they like. does the husband know what she normally drinks?

some people are very picky about the roast level and would throw a fit if you bought a light or blonde roast, etc.

They hand-pick civets out of goat poop? This world is too weird for me.

It's more like cat poop. Only it's not really a cat, either, just a distant relative of cats.

This explains why dogs eat cat poop: they can't hold a coffee cup.

So you see a link someone shared on bookface or something and you click on it - you get redirected to a Congratulations Amazon User, You May Win a Prize, click OK to Spin the Wheel. There's no way out without closing the app.

It seems to happen for some sketchy sites and others I would not expect to be sketchy. Is that some sht on my phone like malware or what?

No, you are getting a "mobile redirect ad," which is a type of ad fraud. It started happening a TON last year, including to a lot of premium sites. It got so bad there were even consumer news stories about it: https://www.wired.com/story/pop-up-mobi ... stop-them/

It's mostly just annoying as hell because it prevents you from accessing the content you were trying to get to. Sometimes if I'm in Safari I'm able to hold the back button and get it far enough back that I don't have to actually close out.
