Hi all- I am truly thankful to all those who sent me some great advice on roasting in Chicago through winter. I will share my experience and what I will learn. I have been roasting for less than a year and love it. I generally like light roasts but am open to trying different things. My favorites are: Sulawesi Toraja Grade 1 Guatemala Huehuetenango El Injerto Columbia Popayan I also just ordered Mexico Organic Oaxaca Finca El Olivo, Sumatra Iskandar Triple-Pick, Costa Rica La Minita Tarrazu and Nicaragua Cup of Excellence -La Esperanza I am looking for some sources to learn how to blend coffees anyone have any on-line or off-line resources? Anyone know of any cupping groups/events in Chicago? I would like to further my coffee education. Best, Debbie Got Coffee?

Debbie, A bunch of us are trying to get a regular coffee-pub-crawl going in the Chicago area (we had one last spring at Intelligentsia's Jackson St. store that ended at Metropolis). We'd also like to see if we can hold home barista jams too. I'm in Edgewater--where are you? On Oct 19, 2005, at 7:31 AM, Debbie Kong wrote: <Snip> Sandy Andina www.sandyandina.com
