Our San Diego Home Roasters meeting host has just acquired a Clover and if you are near enough tomorrow you can come check out the brew from it, tomorrrow, Saturday May 12th starting at 10am at Cafe Calabria 3933 30th St. San Diego, CA 92104-3004 We'll be having a cupping so bring your already roasted Sweet Marias beans along and maybe we can try them in the Clover and see if we find it as hit or miss as Tom found it to be. Or we can cup them against others roasts. Also tomorrow Joe Behm will be demonstrating his Behmor 1 pound roaster which should be on the market real soon once he finsihes certification by some testing lab. All welcome.
I've already had a drink from a clover brewer. Bearing in mind the cost of gasoline, if you have to detour a mile to experience Clover, save the gas. If you have the choice of Clover or press, try both and compare. You decide. Skip the preliminaries and details, cup tough, like Tom does. California is catching up with Denver- How is that? Duh When I looked at the Clover map, there were 4 of them in the Denver metro area, 1 in Chi-town and maybe a half dozen in CA. I'll avoid paying for the Disneyland coffee machines and wasting ga$ ! Does it require the best beans on the planet to brew an acceptable cup? Cheers -RayO, aka Opa! Cup tough!
