Topic: FreshRoast+2 R.I.P. - Long Live Behmor (8 msgs / 273 lines)
1) From: Bill Allison
I had to make a quick trip out of town this morning and, when I returned,
came by the house before going to the office.  Well, since I was here and it
only takes about 5-8 minutes to roast up a roaster full of coffee in the
Freshy, I figured I would just do one little batch.  However, I dropped the
glass roasting chamber onto the concrete garage floor and it is in many
pieces.

I went to SM’s site and had pretty much decided on a Gene Café, but they
were temporarily out of stock.  So I ordered a Behmor.   In the ensuing
discussion with my beloved, I remember assuring her more than once that this
is not an obsession, I am just focused.  I also reminded her how good the
coffee is now that I have finally produced a half-way decent roast.   And I
remember part of the conversation being devoted to me assuring her that I am
actually saving money in the long run because I am buying green beans much
cheaper than I could buy similar quality roasted coffee.  I don’t think s=
he
is convinced.
 =
But, what’s important is I WILL SOON HAVE A BEHMOR!
 =
I think I remember some discussion on this list recently about a blog with
Behmor profiles and wonder if anyone can point me to it, unless I was
hallucinating.

Hey Bill,
I know you already ordered a Behmor, but if you still wanted to replace that
chamber so you'll have a working backup roaster, SM has one on their Sale
and Clearance Item Page
for $9.

I'm not sure if you were hallucinating or not, but after an admittedly
cursory search I couldn't find anything along those lines (I found
plenty of general roasting blogs).
On that note, I created a brand new blog to chronicle my behmor
profiles and adventures.  If anyone cares about a newbie roaster
blathering, feel free to drop byhttp://www.beanburner.org(which I
just created yesterday so it might take a bit before the name
propagates around the world).  Yeah, I probably need another blog like
I need a hole in the head... ah well.
If someone a bit more experienced with roasting wants to join me as a
contributor and would like to add their own posts to it I'll be happy
to create a few extra accounts as well.  I own the domain and it's on
my own hosted server so it's advertisement free... although I did
throw a couple links to Sweet Maria and morecoffee on there.  If
someone wants to exchange link-love I'll be happy to add more links to
it as well.  I can even add categories for other roasters if someone
wants to contribute.
