Topic: Thank you Newbies (4 msgs / 124 lines)
1) From: Les
I want to thank all of you newbies for sharing your new found
discoveries.  You remind all of us oldies what homeroasting is all
about, the wonderful coffee.  As much as I grin at the comments on the
equipment bantering, I am warmed in my heart to realize that others
are enjoying the discovery of homeroast.  As I read these reports, I
am reminded that I don't drink coffee anymore, I drink homeroast.
Yesterday I helped in the kitchen at church and had to smell the
coffee that was being brewed and served.  What I am enjoying this
morning didn't smell like that when it was brewing, nor does it taste
like it either.  I have never tasted a hint of blueberry in a
commercial product.  The Harar Horse Green Stripe is so rich and
layered with flavors followed by a hint of blueberry, I just can
hardly wait for the next sip.
So keep up the good reports, and let all of us oldies enjoy your
awakening into the world of dramatic and complex coffee flavors.
Les

Les, to be fair, it is those of you who have more than a few roasts 
under the metaphorical belt that help us.  For, I have some of the 
best coffees due to what you and others have shared.  Granted, I may 
not have ordered enough, but I got to taste it, oh how wonderful is 
that.  And, now, from your experience, you have shared some 
guidelines to "Must Haves."  Thank you again for that.
I like sharing what I taste, when I do well and when I screw up, for 
I hope it helps others learn from my goofs and sometimes from my 
successes, and to be fair, there have been a number of them lately.
Thank you again.
All the best,
Stephen

3) From: Bob Brashear
At the risk of making this a mutual back-patting thread (which is cool), 
I wish to second Stephen in adding thanks to the "Old Guard" (OG). The 
advice and comments are worth more than gold. I've put a couple hundred 
pounds through a Hottop and I still learn from the OG.

Les,
I'll raise a cup of freshly roasted Colombian San Lorenzo to that!
