This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
I just ordered a new Diedrich One Pound Sample Roaster end of last week.
They build each one to order so mine won't ship until some time around
July 6th.  It's going to be a long couple of months.  I know it's kind
of overkill, but I just couldn't resist.  Everything I've read and folks
I've talked to told me the Diedrich roasters are awesome quality.  The
one pound sample roaster will really be a nice fit.  Plus it will be so
much easier to keep up with all of my friends and family requests.
 
See link below...  Mine will also be red with all of the stainless
steel, but it will also have a stainless steel mantle (kind of like a
saddle on the top and sides that sits close to the front.
 
Anyway, I'll let you know how it goes.

After seeing that wonderful picture of that drop dead gorgeous roaster
I must repost my "Ode to my RK drum"  or I will at the worst case pull
out the Visa and order one or have tremendous roaster envy.
Les
                     Ode to My RK Drum
My RK drum hides in it heat chamber so ready to roast.
The Charbroil Grill makes such a wonderful host.
The soft patina of gold the stainless steel drum shows
Is a strong reminder of the wonderful roasts that have been exposed.
The lure of the Dietrich my humble roaster can't understand as
My RK works, and works so simply and predictable each time.
As I listen to the swish swish of the beans at 57 rounds per minute and
see my simple timer  keeping me in line to the fire that is inside, I
wonder why,
the lure of the Dietrich can seduce me into such a lie.
My profiles are so clean and predictable, so simple, so easy to control.
How can the glitter and shine and the lines of a Dietrich make me think tha=
t
complex and complicated could really be so much better?
When I can roast now without a fetter.
The wonderful smell of the roast before first crack
and viewing the flame through the small hole,
tells me my beans have gotten a loving caress from the roasting
cycle of my RK,
that cannot be improved by Chrome and enamel.
So my dear RK I am back from that horrible lie!
Listening to the music of the pop pop pop of first crack,
the knob of the Charbroil turned down to pull the heat back,
reminds me that with my RK, I have total control to roast the bean
just the way I want to!
What more could anyone want?
Oh Dietrich you are so pleasing to the eye, but I'll just keep enjoying my
RK and not be seduced!
Besides as I sip this fine ristretto, it has to be some of the best
coffee produced!
Why would I want a machine that is much more complex, when my RK roasts my
beans the way I like them best!

He he heh. Thanks for looking out for me Rod.  It's okay though. After you
ratted me out to my wife on the SC/TO setup she confiscated all of my credi=
t
cards. Luckily I had gotten all of my orders in already.
Today was just like X'mas.  I actually received 5 (count 'em, 5) separate
orders. Seriously.  My Aeropress, box fan colander cooling setup, 11 lbs of
greens from SMs, 7 lbs of greens from another, a hot air popper for sample
roasting, plus some labels for my label printer.  Yesterday, I got my
Maestro Plus and 4 lbs of greens.  All that I have left in the mail is my S=
C
and TO from Amazon.
Alas, it is raining outside so I can't play with my cooling setup. Oh well.
From what I understand, the 75# of greens I have isn't enough. Someone
mentioned 150#.  Is that the recommended backup quantity of greens?
See you at the meeting Woody.
My name is Don and I am an  . . .

Way back when we thought green beans lasted two years I kept a lot of 
coffee in stock.  Now that we have decided that they don't have anything 
like that sort of shelf life I keep my stash pretty small.  There is 
just one of me, and a real limit to how much I can use.
I am so envious.  I would love a one pound sample roaster.  Yummy!

Honey, you're gonna have to move your blender and get rid of that 
curly-fry machine - I've got a new toy! Back off kids - mine! Okay, the 
George Forman grill needs to find a new home - that outlet is mine now!
Yeah - I can see family harmony improving as I fight for space in our 
kitchen - must rush out and order one too. :)

So Don,
  Is your Diedrich coming in July, or August?  I recommend buying a few pou=

I can't believe I have to wait until July 16th for shipment. Oh well, I
guess I'll muddle through until then.
Don't tell Anne.  I'll just tell her I won a very generous "Tradition"
offering.

Well THAT is why you leave the old house and buy a new one with a much 
bigger kitchen..... might want to make sure it has a large doghouse too, 
as rover might be having some company for a while dfepending on wife's

Since exactly when is the best possible processing of coffee on our part
"beyond it?"
Don't they call this The Land of the Free, some having fought to keep it so=
,
unlike the PC imbeciles that busy themselves conversely.
It's not hard to find the Virtual Gestapo that couldn't confiscate your
property but try to suppress your admiration of the decent equipment.
Hell's Bells- if you can swing it, there is no treatment too good for the
coffees from Sweet Maria's. At every point in the process, many people have
put forth more than extraordinary effort to put the World's Superlative Bes=
t
Coffee in your hands.
Who gets off saying "This Roaster/ Grinder/ Brewer is good enough" for this
coffee? Beans that literally cost some human blood, sweat and tears to be
made available for purchase don't deserve to be obliterated by some Mattel
toy equipment.
Roast on, Jim- and congratulations. Just like the grinder I picked up on
eBay, your roaster will be a Keeper. It will far outlast and outperform the
priciest of the ersatz machines.
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!

And that's only if you don't order any of the stainless steel options.
They are all extra.  Closer to $4,800...  Of course being a
'roaster-oholic' it would be like buying a new car with all of the
accessories...
