1) From: christina steward
Hi everyone! 
I've been lurking for a couple of weeks, and getting re-excited about my co=
ffee experiences by reading everyone's posts! 
I currently roast with a Zach & Dani's roaster (for the last 2 years or so)=
, but now I want to be able to do different profiles. So I'm planning on an=
 i-roast.  I'm the only coffee drinker, so I want to keep batches small, an=
d also I want to keep budget in mind because I just ordered a Brewtus! 
Anyway, just wanted to say hi, and am looking forward to playing with my ne=
w gadgets. I will probably be needing more advice once I get everything tog=
ether, I'm sure!

Congratulations on the Brewtus.Have one for 10 days and am impressed.Your 
coffee consumption will go up considerably with an espresso machine if 
possible think Hottop or RK drum.

Welcome to the List!
And just ordered a Brewtus, sweet machine. What grinder will you be pairing
with your new Brewtus?

I ordered a Rocky. I'm using a Capresso Infinity now for brewing in a TV
Moccamaster.

I was thinking I would probably be going through more coffee, especially
when first getting the hang of it. The Hottop or Gene cafe may be next
year's upgrade!
I was originally thinking rationally, and starting out with the Gaggia
Espresso, or even the Silvia.  But as I read more & more, I decided I
didn't want to have to futz with things like temp surfing too much, and
had the luxury of having enough $$ in my savings to splurge.  I looked at
the S1 too, but didn't have quite enough counter space.
I'll also admit to buying the Panama trifecta, but I haven't touched it
yet!  (I had gotten some of the Carmen prior to that though).  I couldn't
pass it up because one of the first coffees I roasted that I really
liked, was a Panama Boquette/La Berlina from 2004.
Well, my i-roast came today, so I'm off to try it out!

p.s./fyi: I tried subscribing 2x before this, with Hotmail accounts. I
got the list messages ok, but couldn't post. I suspect hotmail altered my
e-mail address somehow so the list wouldn't recognize it.

Hehe,
Sounds like another one hooked! As far as originally thinking =
rationally,
probably most of us did at one time but we got over it in a hurry.
