Gary,
Keep lurking, but post also.  You are part of this list and it is a 
great place to meet the nicest people.  People here have helped me so 
much it doesn't seem fair, but they are here to help in almost any 
way possible.
All the best,
Stephen

I rarely post, mostly lurk.
Several weeks ago I saw a post or two about drum
roasting and some peoples experiences. One of the posters was Jerry
Procopio.
I have been having trouble getting my roasts even and consistent so
I
emailed Jerry off line.
Turns out he lives near Virginia Beach and we were planning a trip there
to
see our daughter. Jerry offered to demonstrate how he does drum roasting
so
I spent several hours with him and his wife. What a great
experience!
Not only did he show me some techniques to improve my roasting, but he
also
roasted up some of his special blend for me, Also gave me the secret
recipe.
I shared some of my Nic COE to roast then the fun really
started.
Jerry asked me if I would like an espresso and since I have not had a
home
roasted espresso before, I said sure. Jerry made one with the beans we
had
just roasted, his secret blend, WOW was it good!
Next he says, would you like a cappuccino and I said sure. Double WOW,
the
absolute best Cap I have ever tasted. Do you like chocolate he says, I
roast
that too. So I am given some samples for the long car ride home the
next
day.
I would not have had this experience if it had not been for this list
and
people like Jerry. I know there are many of you out there. Thanks for
all
you do and sharing your experiences with others.
And Jerry, of course, Thank You!
Gary,
PS I am now looking for a good espresso machine and an electric burr
grinder. Thanks Jerry!!
