Topic: back home and got my coffee...now what?(just kidding) (6 msgs / 108 lines)
1) From: True, Dennis W. FC1 (CVN69)
Hello all,
	Well we (the USS Eisenhower) are back home and lo and behold I
have a box from SM!! WHOO HOO! I am going popper/roaster shopping this
weekend. I know what to look for in a popper so no worries there. I have
a good grinder(need to clean it wouldn't want to contaminate my precious
beans with "regular gourmet coffee now would I?) so that is covered. 
When I am roasting a lot of people say go by smell. Ok so what do I
smell for? The toasty smell I associate with brewing coffee is all I
really am familiar with although I do know burnt and if I smell that I
would guess I have gone too far. 
Thanks for everything!

Watch the color - go brown, dark brown, but not black.  After the
first 2-3 roasts you'll know and can refine.
I can't imagine roasting with my eyes closed....
Welcome home and thanks for serving!

Welcome Home!!!
Actually on your first few roasts your primary cues will be sound and
sight.  Smell will come later when you develop the ability to smell the
stage of the roast you are at.  For now go by the roasted bean pictorials on
SMs and the sounds of the cracks.

Welcome home.  If you want to try before you buy, just give me a call 
and we can set up a time for you to come over this weekend.  You can 
bring your beans or we can use mine (I have plenty).  I've got poppers, 
HG/DB, and an iRoast, as well as the RK Drum.
