Hi all
New member here. How nice to find a community of happily deranged coffee  
freaks so much like myself. :-)
Some comments on the i-roast: ARGGHH!!!!! There. I feel better now. The  
first one we got was hopeless; it never got hot enough to roast anything and we  
couldn't add time during the third period. The second one (Hearthware was very  
nice about exchanging it) is okay, but with a caveat. We have to ignore the 
temp  readout (We set it to 485 but it never gets close) and oddly, though 
someone  else here said the presets charred their beans, our presets wouldn't 
sunburn an  albino. So... where we come out on it is that every i-roast is its own 
quirky  beast. We now get good roasts in seven to eleven minutes depending on 
the bean,  and aren't going to bother to return this one. (Better the devil 
we know, than .  . .)
More news later
 
(Cup of the moment: Kona full city)
 
be well
 
Michael G
