Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

HotTop Roasters in New England
Hi, are there any Hot Top Homeroasters in the Mass, CT,RI or NH areas that would be interested in meeting up and sharing roasting techniques, secrets and knowledge? We could have a Roast In event or something.
If there's interest, please post in this thread.

I'm in the Springfield MA area. I'd be happy to do some get-together stuff.

I'd love to do some tasting but I don't feel too knowledgeable on that front.

PS: I have a Hottop 2K with TC4/Artisan.
I roast with a Behmor, live in the Boston area, and wish there was a group that wanted to get together on roasting. So to me, anyone roasting with a Hoptop in the New England area should be getting together.
Behmor 1600+, SC/TO, KKTO (Building), Baratza Encore, Chemex, Bodum Chambord French Press, Turkish Cezve
I usually roast Saturday mornings. If anyone wants to join me one of these weekends let me know. I'm in Wilbraham MA. I roast in my kitchen so I'm not weather-dependent.
I am right outside of Boston as well. Looks like the midway point would be Worcester or we could go out to Wilbraham and plop down there. BarryR, are you volunteering your place to do a meet up?

Sure. Probably on a Saturday in the not too distant future.

Who's in?
Im in For mid to late may.
May's going to be busy for me although the 21st or 28th might work. If not I'll try to come up with a June date soon.

Who would be coming and which dates would work?
I am planning on it! May 21'st works for me!
I can host on June 10, 11, 18 (although it's father's day), 24, 25, July 1 or July 2.

For lovers of Craft Beer, I live 20 minutes from TreeHouse brewery which is renowned as one of the finest breweries in the Northeast (on par with Trillium, I'd say).

If that floats anyone's boat, we could meet there at about 10:45 on a Saturday morning and then come to my house afterward and roast.

The thing about Treehouse is, they run out. We'd have a decent guess Friday night what they'd have first thing Saturday morning.
