Topic: OT: dead taste buds (2 msgs / 40 lines)
1) From: Stephen Carey
Hey, all.  It has been some time.  I have been on an experimental 
medicine for the last two weeks and have another week to go.  One of 
the many side effects has been it has turned my taste buds into what 
feels like metal detectors.  Everything tastes like metal, especially 
coffee.  Now, I did get two roasts in for company, but I can't taste 
it.  It is so frustrating.
I haven't even pulled out my new Behmore because I don't want my 
first experience to be one of such a let down.  The docs say the 
effects of this will go away fast, so as I wrap up on Monday, I 
should have taste buds working normally by next week.  I plan on 
doing a lot of roasting.  Working to learn the Behmore, still using 
the I-Roast, which I love so much, and making coffee I can 
enjoy.  The Behmore has me both excited and nervous at once.  It 
seems more intimidating than the I-Roast did, but I have gotten great 
advice and suggestions and all should work out if I read the 
instructions, the notes here and common sense.
I have been traveling a good bit, so it is very nice to be back with 
no travel until we head to our house in Costa Rica on January 13, 
can't wait.  I am taking coffee to the guy who owns the shop where I 
got interested in this.  I hope to know the Behmore my then and 
really do a nice roast, but I may do a roast with the IR2 as a back up!
That's it, just have missed people here and coffee, coffee, coffee!!!

Good to hear from you, Stephen! I for one, have certainly missed your posts.
Sorry about your taste buds & not being able to enjoy coffee right now. Bet
you'll make up for lost time after you finish these meds!
