First, thank you all for the past couple weeks of reading here! This is 
a most enjoyable forum and I think I'm unfairly ahead of you as I have 
met you all and none of you me.
I've been yapping about roasting for about 6-7 years. This past Father's 
day, my wife bought me a book on home roasting. I decided to buy a FR8 
and found it on SM last July. I was hooked - small quantities, though. 
This November I bought a Gene Cafe which I also love although a bit 
loud. The volume makes the crack difficult. But I like roasting to color 
anyway. I have vented a spot in the basement and have my roasting 
station ready to use at a moment's notice - just pull the dust cover off 
everything and roast!
The pure pleasure of tasting beans other than the standard availability 
is amazingly gratifying. I make up a thermos and share most of what I 
brew for the day. I get a smug satisfaction knowing the brew I'm 
drinking is better than what most others are drinking.
I am a scenic designer and sculptor and this year I will giving coffee 
cups designed by me and some Aged Sumatra for Christmas.
Oh, I don't mean to gloat, but I didn't get an "out of stock" notice. My 
two pounds of Aida should be arriving soon. Maybe I got the bottom of 
the bag...
Good to met you all!

Welcome out into the light, John - I was sure I heard something 
rattling in the shadows, but could quite see you. Much better!
You have certainly moved up quickly in your roasting capabilities - 
congrats. Do share your experiences with us we are always learning!
Cheers

John,
Welcome to the list.  Just a reminder for those that sent a little
heat my way, I gloat on these  great coffees, cause I want my list
members to get in on the deals.  Remember we are only a small
percentage of Tom's customers.  I should say super special, cause all
of Sweet Maria's coffee is great.

John,
Thank you for sharing and welcome to the limelight.
Since I couldn't get Maria to take the Aida out of your box and put it
in mine, you will definitely have to share your results and cupping
notes.
Vicariously,
Eddie

Les,
     I usually look forward to your listing the great coffees you  
find, but right now I can only wish and feel deprived because I have  
just been busted on the size of my stash.  However, I would never send  
any heat your way because of your reports on your coffee finds.  In  
fact, I say keep it up because I take solace because I know your  
reports are responsible for some great coffees in my stash.

Hi John:
Please share your notes on the Aida, forget ablout Eddie, Maria would have put your supply in my box not his!!!
I started with a FR original and I have called it, since that fateful birthday in 2001, "The Gift From Hell."
love your website and please let us see the cups you have designed!
Warmest Regards,
