Topic: D.C. area roast/brew-fest? (8 msgs / 180 lines)
1) From: John Crippen
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I moved from Little Rock, Arkansas to Falls Church, VA a few months ago.
Prior to the move, I had paid little attention to posts about D.C. coffee.
My bad.  I've been a home roaster (HG/DB) for three years and just purchased
my first espresso machine (Miss Silvia).  I would love to meet the rest of
you.  Is there a regularly scheduled D.C.-area meeting?  If not, let's make
one.
Saludos,
John Crippen

John... Welcome to Virginia!  I live in southeastern Virginia 
(Chesapeake) and can make it to the DC area in about 3 1/2 hours.  There 
is no regularly scheduled DC area gathering.  For two years we had a Mid 
Atlantic Gathering hosted by Tara in PA, but we have done nothing in 
2007.  Count me in for any Virginia/DC gathering might happen. 
I'm roasting primarily with an RK drum and occasionally with HG/DB.  
I've been using an Isomac Venus (about the same class as Silvia) for 
about 2-1/2 years.  I can drag the RK & grill along to demo for people 
that haven't seen it in action. 
If other area homeroasters are interested in doing this, let's not wait 
till the weather turns to crapola - it's already mid October.

Hi everyone,
So far there are six of us interested in getting together and having a 
DC area meeting.  If we are talking about meeting at a coffee shop 
somewhere and drinking espresso/coffee, then we can do it anytime it is 
convenient for everyone.  Same goes if someone is going to host a 
gathering and we are just going to drink & eat & talk & play with coffee 
toys.  If we are going to do roasting, then weather becomes a factor and 
from November until May weather in the DC area is unpredictable (usually 
good, but who knows?).  It's already Oct. 19 and my guess is that if we 
are going to do something requiring us to be outdoors, we should plan on 
doing it sometime before Thanksgiving. 
What exactly do we want to do?  Do we have a "volunteer" host?  I would 
suggest Saturday, Nov. 3 with Saturday, Nov. 10 as an alternate date.
Dennis, what is your underway schedule.  Are you going to be around or 
will you be underway then?

November 10 works for me.  I've got a roasting-demo (converting more
newbies) on the 3rd.

Hi, all.  I live in North Springfield, just outside of the 
district.  I would love to try to make it on any of the days.
Even the possibility has this newbie brewing with excitement.
