I ordered a HotTop from Sweet Maria's late Thursday with 3-day  
delivery, hoping it would be shipped on time for Wednesday delivery  
for playing over Thanksgiving. Sweet Maria's shipped on Friday with a  
UPS-scheduled delivery for November 22. All was going precisely  
according to plan, but that did not last very long. The shipment left  
Oakland on the 18th (Saturday) and arrived in Rockford, IL later that  
morning. (Rockford is an hour and a half from here.) The packages  
arrived at the local UPS depot at 12:18 AM today. UPS now shows them  
out for delivery!
My 5-pounder is the new Yirg Moledina 3993. Some of it will be  
roasted this evening for first brewing tomorrow morning. I will also  
roast 1/2 lb of Harar Horse 19 to go into an ibrik as soon as it  
cools enough to grind. Batch #3 will be Malibar "Elephant."
Whoo hoo!
Thank you to the gang at Sweet Maria's for turning the order around  
so quickly!

What are you upgrading from? Id love to know the differences!

I am upgrading from an iRoast 2. My first few roasts will be coffees  
I am familiar with so that I can tell the differences between the two  
machines. The Malabar will be interesting because the taste varies  
dramatically with the iRoast profile.
