Hi! New member starting with SR540. I am brand new and slowly getting better results with this roaster. I am interested in any roasting pointers.

Cupping Coffee Consumer Reports Style, or "Why America Can't Get a Great Cup of Coffee"
DavidG
Consumer Reports cupped the grocery aisle! Here is a link to a write up: http://www.dailyf.../19340771/

Anybody on HRO a Consumer Reports subscriber? I (and maybe you) would love to see the fuller report. If not, I'll buy a copy off the newsstand.

I just had to click away from all the comments to this and the myriad other articles -- I almost succumbed and declared that the world would be a better place if more folks homeroasted!!

I suspect that most coffee drinkers are looking for a caffeine transport medium. Conditioned to bitter, weak coffee, they add milk and sugar to make it palatable. Most have never had good coffee, I would guess.

No offense, but I am not a fan of CR. Anytime I have had what I consider to be first hand knowledge of a product that was tested, I usually disagree with their assessment. They tend to look for 'dollar value' which often passes over the top quality choices. If you consider that their testers probably aren't used to drinking fresh home roast, they probably consider grocery store shelf stock to be average or better.

I guess that makes me a snob? :|
I love home roast!

Wish they had had some HR folks on their panel, the world would become a better place!

Thanks
