I got Ron's roasted coffee today.  Thanks Ron.  I can't wait to try it.
I will be doing my drawing on Friday morning.  Not a bad turnout this 
time, but I still wonder why so few people want to get involved.  Send 
me your name and I might send you some coffee.
The parts to PID my Amica have started to arrive.  The rest are due 
Monday and then I will take her apart and figure out what I need in 
extra wire and connectors.  I ordered a very inexpensive 
multimeter/temperature meter with thermocouple to monitor the temp at 
the portafilter.  I will drill a hole in the single basket and run the 
thermocouple up into it through the spout of the portafilter.
I am very excited at the prospect of being able to dial in the 
temperature for different blends.  I very nearly bought the La Spaziale 
S1 just for that feature.  I believe the PIDed Amica will offer me the 
same performance at far less cost.  A recent thread on alt.coffee seems 
to make the rotary vs vibe pump a pretty unimportant difference.
I'll let you all know how it works, and I will post some pictures.  If 
you never hear from me again, I electrocuted myself.
Michael
