Topic: evening roasting on the patio (5 msgs / 74 lines)
1) From: Brett Mason
Fourteen Degrees - I am glad the wind is not blowing!
Tomorrow is another campout, and I ran out of time...  Java Gov't
estate on 1/2 day rest, my espresso shop makes another Scout Campout -
at least that's the plan...
So, out to the patio I go, standing on frozen snow...  It's all about
the experience!

I say Brett deserves about 14,000 combination CSA and FOTY points (Father of
the Year)
for this!
Way to go, Brett!

Was fairly easy...  Here's the roast and the cool...
Can't wait to unfreeze my BBQ and move it away from the vinyl siding...

Yesterday it was about 25 degrees out, little wind and mostly clear - most
perfect day we've had for roasting outside in a long time, and only a day
after we got 10" of snow - i made a point of snowblowing out our little
patio area, so it was nice and ice free too.  I did my Christmas blend
roasting - I think about 10 different varieties (Les style ;) ) consisting
mostly of non SM coffees that I knew I'd never get through and wanted to
give to folks at work (it still did include some Panama auction and
Ethiopian ecafe winner coffee).  I ended up with 19 lbs roasted and another
7lb or so green remaining to be roasted, as I ran out of sunlight.  God
bless the RK drum!  Also managed another couple lbs for friends, the Panama
la Esmeralda Gesha, 2006 (i can't believe how incredible that smells coming
out of the roaster, it was almost painful to give it away) and some
Gethumbwini peaberry (smelled like I was roasting candy), and a little San
Jose Ocana for me, which tastes great this morning, but because my nose is
all stuffed up, I am unable to fully enjoy.  Great roasting day.  I made a
personal accidental, but probably already known discovery - I put 4lbs in to
roast but left the heat low for a while, by accident, but these roasts
actually came out the best - the 4 or 5 minutes of drying time made for
a tighter first crack (fewer leaders and stragglers) and helped achieve a
much more even roast.  Viva la homeroast!
