[Speaking of store names - I drove through Boston's Dorchester the 
other day after I got my car back. Lots & lots of little ethnic grocery 
stores, restaurants, etc. Saw an interesting fish market - sign outside 
read: "Fresh" fish, w/quotes around the word Fresh... wondered if that 
was truth in advertising!]

15) From: Larry Johnson
I've had the Fresh Roast+ and the iRoast 2, and no major complaint with
either. The only thing about the FR+ is the lack of control (nothing but
time; no temp control) and the small batch size. I burned mine up trying to
do too many batches too close together. The iR2 makes more coffee and has
better control (proviso: check the recent conversations about just how much
control you have), but it's louder. I had no trouble hearing 2nd crack in
the FR+, but I have yet to hear it in the iR2.
I have no experience with the Z&D, but you do, so.....
FWIW, I loved the coffee I got from both. I still use the iR2, but I'm
getting into the BM/HG thing (thanks, Vicki) and I scored a free Poppery 2
that I plan to play around with.  Good luck to the newbie. Tell him to make
sure to keep us posted.

Pardon my ignorance (the closest I came to military service was my

Welcome aboard Will!  I had an IRoast 1 for about 3 months and had
little to no success with it.  I quickly upgraded to the GC hand
haven't look back.  It's pricey though.  I have a neighber that gets
amazing results (as good as mine if not better) with the HGDB...

Welcome aboard CDR Will Stout.
I have never been on a ship, but my thoughts are about the logistics of
using one of these roasters on-board.  It would seem to me, that unless you
can always roast in the open air of the deck, that the Zach & Dani's (Z&D -
now Nesco) would serve well due to the lower volume of noise and the
elimination of smoke even though the roasting aromas will still be present.
When roasting outside, the HG/DB, iRoast and Freshroast would be fine on
this basis.

Greetings CDR Stout! I will be a bit of a maverick and suggest you skip the=
 small roast machines and get a HG/DB setup. Much cheaper and I'm sure you =
will appreciate the value. Also more flexible since you can roast a wide ra=
nge of green bean weights. And there is such a wealth of experience on this=
 list, you really won't be alone in learning to get good roasts from the HG=
/DB.

22) From: Steve
CDR,
Heat gun/dog bowl (HG/DB) is a heat gun and dog bowl setup; the
cheapest (or close to it) of setups and one that allows a direct
(manual) control of the roast.  The name sounds like what it is, sans
the spoon.  Many people really like it because you get to see and
directly experience the roasting process.
I have an iRoast2 and I quickly outgrew it to using a Stir Crazy/Turbo
Oven (SC/TO) setup.  This device utilizes a West Bend Stir Crazy
popcorn popper with the heating element disconnected (some people
leave it connected) and a Suppentown turbo oven (there are other
brands).  It can roast at most probably about a pound, but that's not
bad given that in an hour or two you can have quite a bit roasted and
resting.
If you want a nice tony roaster, Hottop is apparently coming out with
one that allows for profile control and the whole nine yards, but this
can be spendy and it roasts (I think) about 1/4 - 1/2 pound.  Very
consistent roast.  I saw one of these in operation (thanks, Barry) and
it delievered a very consistent product.  An example of the
improvement is that my SC/TO setup likes to make bean fragments
shatter off of the bean, and indication that portions of the bean are
getting too hot.  Not so with the iRoast2 and the Hottop.  Both of
those deliver pretty darn good consistency, although with the iRoast
you have to be mindful of ambient temperature.  That said, I still
like the volume and flavor of my SC/TO roasts.  Hope this helps some.
V/r,
Steve Hay

Thank you all for the welcome.  I have been a coffee lover for many
years, but mistakenly thought the expensive boutique style coffees were
the pinnacle of taste.  How mislead I was.  I have some time before I am
off deployment to consider which roaster/system to purchase and I look
forward to the research.  I must confess to being a complete novice and,
although I was intrigued by James' post which recommended a HG/DB setup,
I have no idea what that means.  What is that, exactly?  (And to answer
his question, they still have shellback ceremonies when the ship crosses
the equator - we recently went through one).
Cordially, Will

24) From: Darliene Stanhope
CDR,
I have a Fresh Roast which I love.  I only have one coffee drinker in the
house, so the small capacity per roast is usually ok for me.  I don't have
problems with smoke with this roaster and I usually roast with it sitting on
my stove under the hood with the fan going.  I have a few friends that like
my coffee, so I do roast for others.  With this roaster I have found it
takes about 8 roast cycles to roast a pound of coffee, sometimes 9 if I am
roasting one of the expresso blends.  With 20 minute rests between roasts
this can be time consuming.  I have been looking at getting a larger
capacity roaster, but I do not have a place that I could roast unless I went
outside.  Most of the time that would not be a problem, however, during the
winter I know I wouldn't be roasting outside.  The panhandle of Florida is
nowhere near as cold as most of the country in winter, but I do not like
anything under 50 degrees.
