Topic: Toastmaster (3 msgs / 56 lines)
1) From: Tim TenClay
My little toastmaster from Target and I just finished our 8th batch of
roasting.  This time it was the Yemen Mokha Ismaili (Hirazi) -- I've been
going back and forth between it and a Costa Rican I got with the same order.
Have I told you how awesome this stuff is!?!
Anyhow, I left the lid off this time, in an effort to slow it down a
little - The roast that's been taking me about 4 min. took me 5:30....Will I
be able to tell a difference?
I don't suppose this is all that exciting to most of you, but, I'm loving
it.  Any easy suggestions for improving my coffee?  Should I keep trying to
slow it down - how much difference does that make?
Grace and Peace to all,
 `tim

OF COURSE its exciting to us!   Welcome to the over the edge group.  Any way 
you figure out that roasts coffee is always interesting.  Hang in there and 
keep us posted.  We laughed at the Dogbowl until a bunch gave in and tried 
it.

I am guessing you will notice a difference -- and we'll be interested to know if the difference is noticeable as well. If you want to slow it down a little more, the tilting technique should work nicely and you can stretch it out for another minute or more depending on how long you tilt for. (You will need to use some sort of chimney or the beans will pop out when you tilt).
Congrats!
