Finally back in the Roasting Game!
After an absence of entirely TOO LONG, I'm finally back to roasting. Earlier this year, I was attempting a roast with a heat gun and a whirly-pop, when my heat gun LITERALLY (in the most literal sense of the word) MELTED in my hand. It was quite a scary experience, and the coffee ended up tasting like melted heat gun!

I resolved then, and there, that I needed a real roaster, built by someone who knows how to build roasters. My wife threw me a big 30th birthday party and I was given quite a few giftcards by some loving friends. I graduated from college (only took me 12 years), and I received a few more. Then for Father's Day, my wife decided to let me spend the difference, and I was able to buy a Behmor!!

My first 3 roasts are in the books since Saturday! 2 Costa Rica's and an Ethiopia Sidama. The second Costa Rica has so far yielded some pretty bright Aeropress cups, and I'll be cupping the Ethiopia tonight when I get home from work.

Hopefully, I'll have a lot more posting to do here, and will be able to participate once again!


This is the beverage of the friends of God; it gives health to those in its service who strive after wisdom.

The intelligent man who empties these cups of foaming coffee, he alone knows the truth.

Way to go!
I will try to follow in your footsteps... soon.
For my B-Day, the family gave me 10 hour-blocks of no-guilt uninterruptable coffee-time. Ahhhh...
