i hope that some one on the list is selling this and no one is bidding!!http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&itemC39769878&ssPageNameRK:MEWA:ITthis is the highest price i've ever seen for a poppery 1

I've seen them over $50 several times,never that much though, amazing 
isn't it!  I had several and felt very rich at one time, thought about 
selling them on ebay and then just gave them away to other roasters. 
Making $50 bucks on something I paid $1 for did sound kind of fun!

i am continually jealous of those finding poppery ones at their thrift 
shops. the best that i've done is a poppery 2 and a couple of stir crazies.

Hey it is still $100.00 cheaper than an I-Roast and is a much better
roaster once it is tweaked a little.  If you saw an I-roast for $80.00
you would think it was a great deal.  What I find fun is finding them
for almost free.  However now that I am hooked on my RK drum, I have
my Poppery as a backup.  It is always good to have a back up.

Hey, it still has it's original box.  That makes it fully worth the price, 
right ? :-O

This is obviously a Christmas present. I remember bidding twice as much as  
I should have for a set
of cobalt blue glass cannisters that my wife "hinted" that she wanted.    
Saved my tail, and they still are displayed in a prominent
place in our kitchen.

I didn't think it could get any better, but the Guatemala Cup of
Excellence #1 -El Injerto  four days out is spoiling me!  Becky is
ranting and raving at how good it is.  This is one of the most
balanced cups of coffee ever!  Ugly wrinkled beans roasted to city -
full city bean that were transformed into a cornucopia of aromas by
the Mazzer Major this morning.  I brewed in the Techivorm again this
morning.  The Olympia Cremina will be put into action tomorrow.  I
work late, so I can play!  Maybe I could sneak into the warehouse in
Oakland and change a couple of labels to get some more!  These CoE's
are really something else.  I am so spoiled.  You don't want to miss
this one!  If you do, I like getting surprises in the mail!

This morning I made cappos from the Guatemala Cup of
Excellence #1 -El Injerto.  I must say this is the best cappo ever!
It was a bit bright as an espresso.  If I could get my hands on
another pound I would roast to a full city for espresso use.  I am
sure the bean is hard enough.  When I pulled the shots I was getting
90% crema!  The crema bonded with the  micro-foam and wow what an
unbelieveable flavor, maple syup on pancakes for sure as Tom described
it.

Alright now; this is just beyond the pale.
I am so gonna get my head smacked when my girlfriend finds out I think a
pound of this coffee would be a good idea. Maple syrup indeed!
Tom may be pandering the beans, but you are definetely pimping for him. 
cheers,

Thank goodness I placed my order Wednesday, after Les had only posted 
two of his latest coffee reviews.  That way, I missed this one.
Les may be shilling or pimping, but I have discovered that I like the 
coffees that he writes about.  Of course, they're from Sweet Maria's, 
so that explains it...
