Topic: Having a great time, wish you were here. (9 msgs / 237 lines)
1) From: George Florian
I started roasting about 4 months ago. I lurk in the forums and on this list
picking up pieces of information here and there. My GC has been a great
investment bought only after reading and rereading the reviews on SM over
and over again. Recently after Uncle Sam returned my cash to me, I took the
plunge and bought a Rocky, Miss Silvia, and a Technivorm. I cannot believe
what I have been missing. 
I made some Misty Valley in the Technivorm today and while I loved it in my
Krupps I can finally taste some of the undertones described here. While I am
not ready to call myself a barista yet, I am already making shots better
than I can get at any of the local shops in our small town.  (Thanks for the
guide Tom I am 100% positive it is shortening my learning curve.)
So I apologize for spamming the list but I am so overwhelmed at the tastes I
am experiencing, I had to say thanks. I would have never spent this much
cash on brewing equipment without the confidence I have developed in all of
you. 
Having a great time, wish you were here.

George,
I envy the experience.  It'll keep getting better and better......but that
first portion of the journey is so dramatic, it'll be hard to beat.

Barisat George,
100 CSA points for recognizing you make better shots than the 
paid "professionals"!
Welcome and never apologize to us. We were (are) all newbies 
once too.

Despite experience, we are all one lousy shot or mistaken step from resuming
our newbiness again...  Last night I overroasted 6oz of beans in my popper,
started a fire, tossed them in the sink, and jammed my garbage disposal...
I used to think I know something...

Welcome, George. No need to apologize; we love it when a former lurking
newbie pipes up and joins the party. It relieves some the pressure on us
(somewhat) older newbies. I've only been around a couple of months myself,
so I still claim newbie status. The more, the merrier.
Sounds like you're getting off to a good start. It should be a long time (if
ever!) before you start talking "upgrade", what with that 1st class lineup
of gear.
