Topic: 1st Post & Popper Question (2 msgs / 44 lines)
1) From: cja
Hi all, I have read every one of these posts for over a month now and 
have finally decided to jump in. I live in a small community (3,000) 
near Big Bear in Southern California. I love all coffee, even the bad 
stuff, as long as there is no trace of any sugar or cream- yuck! I enjoy 
buying cups of coffee on the roadside just for the suprise while 
traveling. At home, I use a whirley popper to roast with. Thanks Lynn 
for your 15 minute popper method- I love it. Much better than 5 to 7 
minutes. Now, a couple popper questions. Can you hear 2nd crack in a 
popper with all the stirring noise? I usually start checking color after 
first crack to know my stopping point. Also, many have suggested to go 
by smell. To me, it smells more like burning shortly after first crack 
so what change in smell are you looking (smelling) for? Does the 
elevation (6,000ft) make any difference? Thanks!
Chad

Hi, Chad- and welcome to this wanderful compendium of legal pleasure!
In your neck of the woods, water boils at lower than 212F, you must know=
.
At the Big Bear Community Hospital in San Bernardino county, the actual
elevation is 6,795ft
and water boils at 199.7F with standard atmospheric pressure of 29.92" H=

Under these circumstances, coffee extraction might be a surprise wrt the
lower altitudes.
Cheers and welcome, traveler -RayO, aka Opa!
