I am sure that there are other people roasting that are in the Navy
after all we have a marine that roasts so anyone can roast (Right
Major?) but I am the only sailor that I know that is actually roasting
1-2 times a week underway through a whole deployment. I would love to
hear about any others out there. I have gotten lots of emails from
former sailors on this list that roast. You would think that with all
the coffee addicts in the navy there would be more, I know they don't
mind getting my coffee when I am distributing onboard.
I remember that wonderful post about the guy that was prairie
dogging for coffee. Trust me when I make a pot of the Bug or what ever
I decided to roast this week, I have sailors that will pick up the
phone and call their friends all over the ship and it is literally a
race to empty the pot. I have met at least one new sailor I had never
seen before each week but they all know me, so I have seen again some I
wonder if they are even onboard anymore.

Thanks for sharing your ocean hoppping coffee-roasting exploits with us.
My early morning dogwalking route along Philly's Penn's Landing on the
Delaware River got a little more interesting since Thursday. The USS
Halyburton and USS Klakring, and a slew of smaller Navy vessels are in
town for the Army Navy game. Every time I walk by I keep hoping to smell
fresh coffee roasting, but there are only the usual Delaware River
aromas. Are you the only coffee roaster in the Navy?
