I was just reading Eddie Dove's great blog (link below) and wondering
are some other good blogs out there?  I would especially like to know if
there are any from roasters who use the I-Roast2 (since this is the
machine I use).  I love seeing the detail that Eddie gives all the way
down to his tasting notes.  What a great learning tool for a novice like
me!  ~carlos

Me, too- and I agree, "What a great learning tool for a novice like me!"
I fancy I am a Hands-On, find out how to do it rongly Dummkopf, and up for
recertification
(My-Roast2 is Ray's ROster HG/BM). Original My-Roast was  HG/MB (mixer bowl)
Very inexpensive, Excellent learning tools for roasting. 400g is my norm,
1lb is easy-easy and I never have Modifiled anything.
I'm actually using our old Oster Bread Machine, because I got a brand new
identical ROster at a thrift store for cheap. ($4) It has more buttons than
the chrome plated toy roasters, and this for a VCR- challenged ham operator.
The HG is a Wagner HT1000 ($34) 2yr warranty. My Tool King Glorious People's
Orange HG with switch was $10. It did six real good roasts, and its Grand
Finale looked like the midnight spectacular of a July 4th fireworks show. I
was holding it in my hand. I hate that.
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!

Uhhh.... RayO was there anything in your reply that was remotely related
to this thread?  I appreciate your knowledge on the topic but sometimes
I just get dizzy trying to figure out where you're coming from.  But
don't stop...I like the challenge!   ~carlos

"remotely related to this thread?"
Yes- the Roasting.
Were I to try to refer to the subsequent cooling, aging, grinding and
brewing methods along with my own subjective cupping- or Steining comments,
it could get complicated.
We accept that the coffee experience depends on the bean pedigree, Roasting,
cooling, aging (hours), grinding, brewing, maybe further aging (minutes),
and enjoying the brew.
I control the pedigree only by my selection from the Offering List when I
have Wampum.
Eddie talked about his roaster. His reference to problems and solutions
alerted me to the fact that he might be talking about Roasting. That's a
Work In Progress for me, so I jumped in with both of my pennies.
For under $10 total investment, I think I've got cooling down cold.
Since Roasting enables or disables every following step in the process, and
since Roasting is a WIP for me, any further discussion would be superfluous.
Unless you want to talk about Grinders. Wanna talk about Grinders? Bigger is
better, and the best is just enough, otherwise every other step is, or was,
a Waste, including the beans taken out from the supply line.

Got Grinder?

I hit on roasting/resting on occasion.  I've had some interesting
discussions centering around resting more than anything.  Other than
that, it occasional bean notes, church stuff, genealogy, etc.
