Topic: Homeroasting Demo (18 msgs / 494 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
This weekend, I had the opportunity to show homeroasting to the masses!  I
work for an edu and had showed a friend a while ago who hooked me up to do
the demo.
It was Parent's Weekend and I was set up with a table and ample power, in
the shade.  I brought along 2 poppers (one for show, one to use), a Chemex
for brewing, hot water kettle, fan, colander, pre-roasted and green beans,
and grinder.  I started with a crowd of about 10-12, chatting while
setting up.  Once I was ready to start the roast, I started describing
what I was doing.  Once the beans were down, it was back to chatting and
prepping a Chemex of freshly roasted Colombia.
Bottom line: many were impressed.  One had actually homeroasted before. 
The name "sweetmarias.com" was mentioned several times; someone actually
wrote it down.  So, there may have been converts among the masses!

Does that mean my local homeroast group counts for a few points?
 ...with a link to Sweetmarias?

       I really don't think someone should be able to award more  
points than they have accumulated.  And this looks like a bit of CSA  
point inflation going on here.  But since we make up the rules as we go.

Pat - that's worth points, helping lead another down the primrose path - I'd
say worth at least 50 for the leading, and 50 more for knowing where to find
the original source!
Cheers,
Fellow CSA,

Agree, CSA point awards getting rather inflated. I'll have to revise the
planned redemption schedule at the (soon to be) Roastery Cafe...
 
There will also be a schedule of points to be awarded TO mcKona Koffee when
we hold our first SM List open house. Just wait 'til you see the number of
points we'll get for each person who get to not just see or even touch (or
even hug:-)but actually operate the 3 group Linea and the US Roaster Corp
"Bad Boy"!

Is it anything like my car radio?

Barry,
Actually you'd likely have little problem with either. Approach the PID'd
Linea like you would your Brute (except for steaming, hold on tight!) and
went bonkers and ordered the touch screen PLC profile controller with the
USRC "Bad Boy"!

Brett,
    Thank you very much.  But please understand, I wasn't asking for 
points, just pointing out that some of us like this ... endeavour even 
if we don't have any points.  I am SOOOOOOOOO far behind the likes of 
you, Mike, miKe, Ed, Ginny, Vicki, Ray and the all so many more that I 
can't name them all at this early hour that I feel honored to be allow 
to read and learn from all of your posts. :)  But I *do* have two 
coworkers who are most thoroughly addicted to my coffees and will no 
longer touch the stuff served in the cafeteria at work and while they 
always use cream & sugar elsewhere ... they refuse to with my coffees so 
that they can taste the real flavors.  In fact, I know get requests for 
regional coffees from them ... I roasted up two different Panamas this 
weekend at the request of one of them so that he can see that even 
coffee from the same area can taste different.
    I *think* I may be getting one of them close to trying either HG/DB 
or HG/BM roasting.  he's asking a LOT of questions about what's involved 
lately. :)

Anybody who demands good brown in their cup is at the same place as me.
I've just done a little more tinkering than some - that's all...

And if it means anything for the hobby, I heard today that there were
some props for the demo.  So, maybe we're not all alone in our little
neck of the woods :-)

Please, what do the initials HG/DB and HG/BM stand for?  Most of the  
time I can follow or figure out the shorthand used in this list, but  
not this time.  Incidentally, I am now sure I have made the right  
decision to switch away from the digest as I find the individual  
messages, without the huge amounts of garbage, much easier to  
follow.   JoAnne
