Topic: I LOVE ROASTING! (4 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: Bill
I have been outside for about an hour, roasting on our patio.  It's 50
degrees with bright, bright blue skies.  2 blocks away is the golden dome of
the Wyoming State Capitol.  There is no wind to speak of (always a miracle
in Chey-town).  I just finished the last 2 lbs of Colombian Antioquia, now
some decaf and a green panama a friend brought from there (not expecting
much!).
Anyway, came in to figure out a few issues of poundage on a blend, and I'm
heading back out... I love this hobby!!!

I am right there with you, Bill.   I love this roasting thing, this 
idea, turned hobby, turned passion.  My friends love seeing me so 
excited about something so positive.  Roasting, and this may sound 
extreme, but roasting has brought a lot of happiness and excitement 
into my life.  I especially love the fact that I have something I can 
make myself and either give away or just enjoy.  I never was able to 
do this before, there was nothing other than my work that turned me 
on as much.  Now there is.
I am not sure what I am roasting tonight, for it comes before a long 
and tough trip.  I need to come back to roasted beans ready to go as 
I step in the door from a red-eye flight.  But they will have had to 
last about 9 days.  My guess is to pull enough out to get me through 
Wednesday and freeze the rest; then I head to the airport to be there 
by 4:00 a.m. on Thursday.  I get back almost a week to the hour.  I 
guess the freezer will be okay, but it really doesn't matter, for no 
matter what I roast and even if it does sit for 9 days it will taste 
great compared to what I will have had if I dare even try any venue 
supplied coffee.
What I do is pretend it is a totally different drink and order a 
latte or something that in no way tastes like what I roast and 
brew.  I pretend it is like a soda pop.  To me it is a hot drink, 
caffeine delivery system at 4:30 in the morning for a week.
Enjoy your roasting and know that there are many of us out here who 
LOVE THIS HOBBY!!!!

Stephen, I am in awe of your energy and enthusiasm for living--mixing  
travel, work, and health treatment is three times the load that most  
of us have, and continuing to roast (while you consider it to be in  
itself therapy) is not easy in the face of all that.

I'd recommend an Ethiopian coffee.  I really like those in the 7-14 day
window.  So after 9 days I think it would be hitting its prime.  glad to
hear you love this stuff too!bill
