Topic: OT Taking Fresh Roast to job interview (16 msgs / 402 lines)
1) From: L. Michael Fraley, MD
Hi all!  I am off to Maine for a job interview, and I am taking gifts 
of fresh roast as gifts.  These are beans I have sampled myself, so I 
know they are good!  I will not be around here for a few days.  Wish me 
luck!

Hmm.. that was a bit redundant!  Sorry!  I guess that is a sign of how 
nervous I am!

Best of luck, Michael. As you may remember, my first interview for the 
job I recently started ended with the fellow interviewing me roasting in 
my garage and taking the resulting beans home with him.  It may be why I 
got the job.

Fresh home-roasted coffee may make job-hunting a cinch. ;) Let us know how
it goes.

Just repeating the same well-wishes to ya! Let us know how it goes - and
where in Maine you may be relocating. I see a New England gathering on the
rise!

Just a quick Thank You! to all of you folks who wished me well during 
the interview.  It went very very well, and I am hoping for an offer.  
The coffee was received well.  They seemed very fascinated about the 
entire process.
And Lynne, this was in Maine.  When we flew out of there yesterday, the 
temps were in the 20's (F) and when we landed back here in Kentucky 
(well... we actually fly into Huntington, WV) the temp was 71 (F).  
Quite a difference!  One funny "homeroasting-related" thing happened.  
When a realtor was showing us around the area, and he asked what sort 
of things we would be looking for in a home, my wife responded:  "It 
has to have a place for Michael to roast his coffee."  This is a woman 
who has the right outlook on life!  (And she do love me homeroast!!)
Thanks again, gang!  I will keep you updated on the job.

I'm so glad that the interview went well - and glad you brought the coffee.
I might be doing the same when I go for the interview I'm expecting soon (I
hope).
Yes - you'll find Maine weather a bit different than that of West Virginia!
Don't know if you'll be near the ocean - it's so beautiful, and the clams &
lobster...mmmm. Haven't been up there in years.
Your wife sounds truly wonderful - good to have a good partner!
Lynne
sending you both the best of wishes!

Thanks, Lynne!  Good luck on your upcoming interview.  This place is 
actually in the Western mountains of Maine (In Franklin County.)  But 
is only a couple of hours from the ocean... and that is so much better =
than how long it takes us to get to fresh seafood now.  My wife is a 
lobster nut!
She is a great gal.  I am lucky to have her.
On a coffee note:  there was a coffee shop up there called Java Joe's 
(I think it helps that there is a University nearby) that had decent 
coffee.  Their coffee came from a local roaster, and seemed reasonably =
fresh.  As I was going in their door, I noted a sign on the door that 
read:  (I am paraphrasing) No admittance to anybody without shirt or 
shoes.. or anybody who thinks Dunkin' Donuts has good coffee.  I 
thought it was pretty funny!

You probably didn't get a chance to visit the White Mountains in NH when you
were there - we traveled there from around that area years ago. If you
haven't been, be sure to see the Kankamangus highway in the White Mountains.
Gorgeous! (That's where we had our 'moose siting', but then if you do move
to near the mountains of Maine, you'll probably see them there, too!)
My wife is a lobster nut!
<Snip>
Yes, indeed you are  -  read the Northern NE Chowhound for good lobster
rest. suggestions & treat her!! Oh, man, I love lobster... getting hungry.
<Snip>
HA! Yes, very funny!
(and I won't admit that I live in the same city that has the very same large
commercial roaster that used to supply DD w/their coffee way back, before
all this DD madness began...)

I have been to the White Mountains in NH, but not this visit.  I have 
not yet sited a moose, but really want to!
We had heard, that one of the best ways to eat lobster in Maine is to 
go to the seashore, and there will be small establishments that sell 
them to eat out of doors.  That sounds fun... and good!
Where do you live?  If you guys do get up a home-roasters meet for NE, =
I would love to come (assuming I do get the job!)

My crummy apartment is just north of Boston, in Malden (ha - not kidding
about the crummy part - involved w/code violations w/the landlord, which he
refuses to address & he's threatening to evict us ... will make for an
interesting court date). I really want to do a homeroast get together. Plus,
it'll give me an excuse to do some baking, too.
I'm definately interested in doing a NE homeroasting get together. Boy, if I
was only in my former apt., still... would have made for a fantastic
homeroasting meeting. (Have been saying that I wished I was back there,
since the apt is still empty.. but now my former landlord is in JAIL, & it
sounds like they are ready to throw away the key... Man, my life is
interesting!!!!!)

Eat lobster any way at all. Outdoors. Indoors. By the sea - just do NOT eat
it in any chain restaurant. Yuck. Yes, the best restaurants in N.E. are the
down home variety. Eating in the rough - I always check Chowhound for ideas.
Makes me hungry to go to that site...
I went to Mt. Desert Isle many years ago - there were  a number of
restaurants that actually boiled the lobsters outdoors. My kids were tiny,
so I couldn't afford to eat out (we camped up there - beautiful area!).  The
two of you will have SO much fun, believe me! (My favorite is baked
stuffed... oh, then there's fried clams...oh, and real, New England onion
rings... think I love clams even more than lobster..... getting SO HUNGRY..)
And if you do move to Maine, I'm sure you'll see a moose at some point. Let
me just say - I'll NEVER forget the size of that animal. Wow. Incredible,
beautiful - and way bigger than I ever imagined!
