Topic: Enjoying the list, was Cooling (2 msgs / 42 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
I like your post, miKe. The variety, complexity, etc. is the bottom
line when it comes to coffee, and is often hardest for new roasters
(including me when I started) to understand. Many of us initially have
the idea that there is one "right" way to roast/extract the "best"
variety of coffee.  You can pretty much count on a new list member now
and then becoming frustrated at not getting clear, simple answers to
clear, simple questions such as "what is the best way to roast?" or
"what is the best coffee variety?". The responses usually include a
few that are similar to miKe's post, but the person often is not yet
ready to hear this "non-answer".
I always enjoy Ken's posts too, and have since I joined the list
several years ago. I'm sure we all have our favorites, and I do too,
and it is posts from miKe, Ray, Ken, Barry, Eddie, Stephen, John,
Alchemist John, Les, Tom of course, and many other thoughtful, usually
considerate people that make this list not only valuable but enjoyable
to me.

I agree Brian. I think the best thing about this list is the attitude of
trial and error.  No one claims that any one way is the only way for
anything.  It stimulates a lot of discussion and disagreement, and that's
what I value.  Thanks to all for a great and stimulating list.bill
