Topic: Fresh Roast Plus 8 Review (4 msgs / 65 lines)
1) From: Tom Maynard
As a relative noob, I have just posted my review of the FR+8 roaster on
CoffeeGeeks.com.  If you're interested, you can review my review:http://coffeegeek.com/reviews/accessories/freshroast_roaster/tmaynardIt's not a "proper" review but more a "how I use it" document.  Of course I draw
heavily on SM's techniques/procedures/timing.  But, it does reflect my current
state-of-the-roasting art with the FR+8.
Any/all comments/critques/complaints are welcome!  My hide is pretty thick!
Anyway, it's the way I choose to use my roaster.

Good job!  People are gonna find that helpful.
If I may, why do you never roast for more than two days at a time?

Eddie,
I'm not a heavy drinker (pardon the expression).  I typically only have two
10-ounce mugs of coffee per day ... and not even everyday -- but most days.
The roasting output from the FR+8 more than satisfies my coffee habit: one roast
delivers enough beans for two days (or more, if I skip a day).
I love my coffee, but I don't crave it -- if you know what I mean.  I like it
fresh, and I like it good, but I don't necessariy like it everyday.  So, the
FR+8 batch sizes more than adequately meet my needs.  I'm the only coffee
drinker in my household.  If my wife began to drink coffee -- even only as much
as I do -- then I'd have to give serious consideration to a larger capacity
roaster!
Until then, the FR+8 is just fine for me -- and I'm loving the exploration it
allows.
Thanks for asking,
Tom.

Tom,
It sounds as though you have found the perfectly balanced solution for your
needs.  Thanks for entertaining my query.
