Topic: benefits of caffeine (20 lines)
1) From: Rosemary Pietrasz
Hello, Ellen...like you, this is my first time posting after reading  
all the great advice posted on this list for a while. I just want to  
add that I have had issues drinking certain coffees in the past,  
especially as I get older. The typical Starbucks brew along with just  
about every other big coffee manufacturer really upsets my stomach. I  
have been ordering the green beans from SM for a year now to home  
roast and have graduated from the stove top popper to an FR8+, which  
I find very quick, quiet and convenient...I may not get all the  
wonderful flavors that I might get with a more expensive roaster but  
it makes a pretty good roast for my proletarian tastes. Also, thanks  
to advice on this list, I bought the AeroPress coffee maker and for  
such a funny looking contraption, it really makes a smooth cup of  
coffee. If you can, you should try one of these as it will help even  
the less than perfect roasts taste good.  Cheers, Rose
