Thanks John and Frank for getting this back up on the list.  I  
realize I should have added something to the subject as my topic  
really got lost.  I'm hoping to see some more replies to this and so  
have put it up again with a better subject.  You can see my original  
post on this below Franks reply.

JoAnne, I'm in for a meet for the Phx area. It would be great to meet  
the wonderful people on this list. January would be fine for me, or  
February or March or...

I'm with you Frank, John Brown and I met at the Tucson Mall one day  
and swapped roasts.  We both use the same roaster so it was good to  
compare.  There had been talk of a get-together of those of us in AZ,  
but John had to go home for illness in the family and I went back to  
PA for my class' 60th reunion.  Now we have the holidays coming up,  
but come January I think we should all plan something.  I think it  
was Gin who suggested we meet someplace in the PHX area, which seemed  
OK with most.  It would be super to meet some of those on this list  
who have been so helpful to me and also to bring along some roast  
samples to swap.

Hey, I really like your idea of a roasted bean exchange. I am like  
you. I have nothing to compare it to locally, except the old folgers  
thing or *$ or similar.

"right.'  It
is like trying to describe color; you can describe as much as you  
want, but
you have to experience it.  But by comparison with, say, Counter Culture
Coffee, which people tell me they like a lot, I know mine tastes pretty
good.  I also know because ever since I began to roast (or at least  
to get
the hang of it) my kid (senior in high school) brings her friends to the
house for coffee and she and the friends hang out here more (I was  
getting a
little worried about her never being at home; coffee keeps kids off the
streets!).  Still, at some point, it would be nice to get involved in an
exchange of our roasted beans.
