HomeRoast Digest


Topic: Come All ye lurkers Holiday offering (43 msgs / 1338 lines)
1) From: Kevin
Maybe this, or something like it, will become an homeroast list tradition,
an offering to entice lurkers further into the world of home roasting and it
is in the spirit of the season...I have an iRoast 1 that I purchased in
September and no longer use (moved to the GC).  As an incentive to the
lurkers on the list to introduce themselves I will raffle it off to a lurker
who introduces themselves on this thread and will use it to start off
roasting.  All the email address will be written on a piece of paper and, if
I may borrow from Linda Reese's Halloween tradition) the names will be
written onto a piece a paper, crumbled up and placed into a hat (a NJ Devils
baseball cap to be exact).  Next, one of our three cats (probably Oliver)
will pick the winner out of the hat and the winner will receive the iRoast
1.  The drawing will occur in the days between Christmas and New Years and
I'll notify the list of the winner.
So, any lurkers want in?

Good show.

5) From: Jim Wheeler
Not sure if I am really a lurker.  Although I posted more in the past,
we have been busy and list reading has been down on the things to do.
Coffee roasting is alive and well in Skull Valley.  We introduced one
of our three neighbors to the hobby and continue to share the products
from our roasting.  Most days, we set a Fresh Roast +8 out on the
kitchen deck, roast a little coffee, and enjoy the view of the
mountain ranges that surround us.  Living in the west desert of Utah
means that we only go to town for supplies every few weeks.  Fresh
roast coffee must be done at home or we drink stale coffee.
May everyone on the list have some good coffee this week.

No, thank you.  I jumped right in and bought a Gene after only using a  
popper about half a dozen times.  It should go to a real newbie.

9) From: Sue Bell
You all seem friendly enough - so I'll be brave and
post!  (I haven't read all the list rules yet, so
please show some grace if I'm not following
procedure:)
My husband got me a Hottop for Mother's Day, two days
later my dad had a horrible stroke and I'm just now
starting to roast.  I live in northern Michigan so I'm
not sure if my garage is warm enough, but I'm one
happy camper with my results so far.  (I admit, my
husband also got me a Jura-Capresso machine last
Mother's Day, so it's pretty hard to get a bad cup of
coffee).  
I thoroughly enjoy reading the banter of this group,
you bring a smile to my day, and I am learning so
much.  I'm still pretty clueless about all the
initials, but I'm a quiet learner!
Thanks for the offer to join the fun, Kevin.  My six
dogs join your three cats in the season of
celebration!

13) From: Andie Z
Kevin and Others,
         I am almost a lurker.  I think I posted once or twice in the 
past year.  I am still using a hot air popper that I purchased for 
$6.49.  I certainly would like to upgrade and become a posting 
member.  I live in Upstate New York and it's getting too cold to 
roast on the porch.  I'm a guy who likes good coffee.  Interestingly, 
I got started when I tasted Starbucks on the Thruway.  I thought it 
was good.  Then I started lurking in this group and discovered real 
coffee.  Now, with the popper, I enjoy my coffee and don't like 
Starbucks.  Please enter me in the Holiday Offering if I qualify.

I'm originally from upstate New York, and since I live in Central 
Alberta now, I have gotten pretty good at cold weather roasting.I 
pre-warm my bread machine roaster by passing the heat gun around it (not 
too close, or the plastic would melt) for a bit.
Once the roasting starts, it is good to go as far as keeping the set-up 
warm, it is getting it warm enough to start that is the issue.
It might be worth buying a heat gun, even if you don't use it to roast. 
Then there is the whole roaster in a box thing, for cutting down on 
wind. I have roasted in my garage at -20 C. It involves long underwear, 
down jacket, hood, boots, and gloves, but it works.

Hi, Sue!
Where in northern MI are you? I get up to the U.P. a lot, and once or  
twice a year to the Traverse City area.  I don't know if the Hottop  
is as sensitive to ambient temperature as is the i-Roast (I have to  
roast indoors, with ventilation, in winter--the bathroom or kitchen,  
because my garage is detached and unheated), but your garage should  
be fine.

Hi listfolks,
I'm Lauren, (a guy) a new lurker on the site and have only been  
roasting for less than a year. I live just outside of Wash DC and  
recently sold my business so am being a bum around the house for a  
while allowing for more time attending to hobbies.  It has so far  
been low tech. I've done oven, stovetop, popcorn popper and now have  
settled into my preferred wok roasting as a learning tool until I  
decide what roaster to buy. My theory is that I should learn as much  
as I can by using my senses observing a roast before I move to a more  
mechanized method. My wife is a long term tea buff and takes her tea  
brewing as serious as I do coffee, buying from a great importer  
although she is quick to point out that tea doesn't need nearly as  
much equipment:)  As far as equipment, I brew my Americanos with a  
Aerobe Press, which I love although I admit to some recent lustful  
thoughts after Miss Silvia. My grinder is a cheapo chopper style but  
I may ask Santa for a Barasta Virtuoso.  The roasters I am most  
interested in comparing when I do take the plunge would include the  
HotTop and the Gencafe.
Since there was a diversion to Smoking Turkeys, I'll add this. I have  
been a BBQ buff for far longer than of coffee, a member of the Kansas  
City BBQ society and occasionally a competition judge for their  
events. I agree on the advantages of brining. My addition is that  
since I smoke low and slow 200-225 degrees, I add Mortons TenderQuick  
to the brine for food safety insurance. A bird sits for a long time  
at that dangerous temperature zone of 40-140 during a smoking, so  
this adds to my comfort. I won't even begin to talk BBQ equipment as  
my wife has been quite indulgent with me here as well. I do have an  
extra gas grill that may be ripe for a roaster conversion for larger  
roasts.
Nice to join those of you on the list. I have a lot to learn.

Lauren,
     I am not sure how long I have been on the list but I still wok  
roast about half the time.  In fact, I do all the first roasts of a  
new coffee in the wok so I can learn how it roasts and I can pour  
some out at different stages for cooling so I can try the new coffee  
at different roast levels.  I can say the heat-gun/dog-bowl (I use  
the wok as a dog-bowl here) approach works quite well this way also.   
It has the advantage of getting rid of the chaff during roasting but  
it also has the disadvantage of blowing the chaff all over the place  
and when done inside degrades the quality of the relationship with my  
wife so it has to be done outside and I've had the worst luck getting  
cooperating weather when I want to roast.

Red Deer. There is no duty on green coffee, and I have never had taxes 
assessed on packages from Sweet Maria's. I don't know the most cost 
effective amount, but a recent 18 pound order cost $28 surface mail, 
insured. My last 10 pound order (with some bags) was $22, surface, not 
insured.
I always figure about $2 a pound for shipping. Sometimes it's a bit 
more, sometimes, a bit less. A friend sent beans to me as a gift, from a 
well known Canadian supplier. The shipping charge was about the same, 
and the beans, needless to say, were not as good.

I'll consider you eligible and add you to the drawing.  The goal is to get
people more involved and pass the IR1 onto someone who can use it.

Kevin..your offer of a "real" roaster is very generous. I've been lurking f=

Come All ye lurkers Holiday offering
Maybe this, or something like it,=
 will become an homeroast list tradition, an offering to entice lurkers fur=
ther into the world of home roasting and it is in the spirit of the season.=
..I have an iRoast 1
that I purchased in September and no longer use (mov=
ed to the GC).  As
an incentive to the lurkers on the list to introduce t=
hemselves I will
raffle it off to a lurker who introduces themselves on t=
his thread and will use it to start off roasting.  All the email address wi=
ll be written on a piece of paper and, if I may borrow from Linda Reese's H=
alloween tradition) the names will be written onto a piece a paper, crumble=
d up and placed into a hat (a NJ Devils baseball cap to be exact).  Next, o=
ne of our three cats (probably Oliver) will pick the winner out of the hat =
and the winner will receive the iRoast 1.  The drawing will occur in the da=
ys between Christmas and New Years and I'll notify the list of the winner.=
So, any lurkers want in?

 It is a yahoo mail list:
HoustonHomeroasters
The list is nowhere near as active as this one,  but there is usually
a face-to-face meeting spot lined up a couple of times a year.

Didn't know that.  Anyone else know of the group's details?

I wanna be a lurker! I have posted but could really use a roaster. I am 
currently one of the very, very few on this list to use a whirleypop 
(lack of $$). I have a Rocky though :). Also got a poppery but those 
batches are just too small. I want something that will give me some 
better consistency- flame on the bbq burner is out of control and it is 
in the 30's outside.
