Topic: Tradition Offering(?): FR+ (9 msgs / 210 lines)
1) From: Paul Sack
Does anyone have any use for a used Fresh Roast+? It's just taking up 
space in my overfilled apartment. Or does anyone need an extra roast 
chamber or chaff collector?
It works perfectly well, but since getting an RK drum, I find I don't 
like using the FR anymore, even just for roasting samples.
BTW, what is a "tradition offering"? I see people always say that when 
they give stuff away, but usually they are giving away much nicer 
stuff. Does it count if it's a used cheap air roaster?

Paul, I may have a friend at work who is interested in this.  How much 
are you asking?

Oh, I'm not asking for anything. I would ask for s/h, but it's a pretty 
light machine, and I have some boxes and packaging I can use ... I 
can't imagine shipping would be more than a few dollars. I'll just pay 
for it. Besides, I won some Kona a while back in an offering that made 
such an incredible cup of coffee ... I couldn't live with myself if I 
charged for a FR.
I didn't even know if anyone would be interested in the roaster. Okay, 
so one person emailed me off-list, and now you've emailed me on-list. 
I'll wait until tomorrow morning and randomly draw a winner.
BTW, I have taken this machine apart a few times, and I did have to 
replace a couple of burnt-out diodes as a result of a mis-experiment in 
regulating the fan speed. I think I resoldered the new diodes at least 
as cleanly as they were originally soldered. So I think the roaster is 
in good used shape, but as always don't walk away from a coffee roaster!

   Simply put - a Tradition offering is a gift given (and delivered) freely
in a spirit of "We get a lot of support from the others in this list, so
here's something in return". The "Tradition" is that whoever is the
recipient of such a gift will eventually offer one as well, thus passing
along the good kharma. But, you don't have to have received one to offer
one. (After all, it must have started out that way, didn't it?)
    Usually the recipent is chosen by drawing from a list of folks who have
expressed ineterst in receiving the posted gift.  Typically they are email
addresses folded up and the winner drawn out.  But, it doesn't have to be
that way either. As the person offering the tradition gift is footing
whatever bill there was/is for the gift and its shipping, they may choose
any dang way they please.
   Since a tradition offering is a pure gift, it may be a simple as a coffe=
mug or a pen or as complex as an espresso machine.  The giver decides.
There is ceryainly no shame in offering a coffee roasting machine!
   I was not here on the list this started, so some of the *really* grizzle=
old fogies on the list will have to explain the exact who and the how it

as has already been stated, i love capital LOVE coffee gadgets of any kind,
so i would love to be able to fiddle around with it for a while then maybe
send it on it's way, but maybe there are newbie roasters who have never
tried anything that would be more deserving of such a tradition offering.

         I certainly would be interested in the Fresh Roast+.  I have 
been using an air popper for 3 months and would like to move up a 
little.  This would be a good step up.

Hello Paul, this could be my way to freedom...Sort of...This sounds like
a nice gift for my supervisor, get him roasting his own and get me a
little breathing room on my roaster.
Sign me up for the drawing. Would also be a good way to introduce
another customer to Tom...

That's a great tradition offering! For the moment, I'll stick with the air
popper, just stubborn I guess, but  it'll be a great start for somebody.

Well, 14 people replied, which was way more than I expected.
Phil Johnson, you are the winner! Send me your address offline and I'll 
send you the roaster.
Have a good weekend everyone.
