Topic: New to list - need links and advice (8 msgs / 182 lines)
1) From: Richard Estes
Hello all;
I just joined the list after refining my coffee taste buds over the past 20
years. I recently found the Sweet Maria's site, ordered some green beans
through Coffee Wholesalers, and have found a Poppery II for 1.99 and the
original Poppery for .99 at local second hand stores.
There used to be an extensive web article on popper roasting which showed
many pics of how to modify, add switches, etc. that I thought was at Sweet
Maria's but now I can't find it... anyone know where it is??
Also looking for great advice on roasting in the Poppery machines, good bean
sources etc..
Thanks, and bottoms up!

	You'll learn this pretty quickly - All beans of the same name are not the
same!! I ventured out to your supplier just once - the grade of bean I
received was inferior to what I get from Tom and Maria. I don't know if they
were stale - or if they had been damaged - or just a lower grade bean - but
the quality deficit was immediately noticeable.  So - my advice to you and
your poppery would be to start with a known quality bean from Sweet Maria's.

Hi Richard,
Here's the link dedicated to hot air popping I think you were referring to:http://www.execpc.com/~n9zes/homeroast/roast.htmlAbout "good" bean source. I've purchased from 3 different sources
specializing in greens for homeroasters. I've found Sweet Marias to have the
highest consistent quality, great coffee reviews and great selection to
boot. Some greens Tom doesn't carry. I order Kona directly from a few
different growers, JBM from two sources, Australian direct from an
Australian roaster I met while in Kona on vacation, Galapagos from a State
side source & St. Helena's directly.

Thanks Mike;
This is the link I was looking for! Thanks!
I am looking forward to my future home roasting experiences with savor!
Perhaps you can tell me a little about the "organic" coffees. I have read
that behind tobacco, non-organic coffee beans are treated with many, many
chemicals as a requirement for import. Is this true?

One piece of advise - don't say anything to upset the list moderator! He'll 
yank anything that isn't totally PC (must be a democrat).
