I am new to Homeroast and this Blog----I am a retired chef and renovating my kitchen and originally wanted to learn about coffee drip pots but am now getting interested in homeroasting---Is there a place like a directory where questions like---the best coffee pot---water temperature is discussed?
much karma,

Andrea,
There is a searchable archive that may be helpful to you. It allows
you to search all the discussions that have occurred on this list:http://themeyers.org/HomeRoast/You will find a lot of info that way, and it is a good way to develop
general information quite quickly. In addition, you can simply ask
questions on this list. A few list members over the years have
mentioned remodeling their kitchens and in the process accommodated
roasting stations, coffee stations, and so forth. I'm quite sure those
people would be happy to share their experiences with you and with the
rest of us.

Andrea,
I believe you just found it. Toms list here which we all post to has
archive's full of questions and answers like you just presented.
It is possible to search the archives but it's more fun to get fresh
answers.
Let's use your question "the best coffee pot" , on this list this might be
interpreted as the best brewing system. A very subjective topic. Water temp
will vary a little depending on the system used. For instance 170 degrees is
recommended for the AP Aeropress. A small brewing system great for
backpacking.
Let me welcome you to a great source for not only home roasting but many
facets of coffee enjoyment.

Andrea,
Welcome to the list!  Apart from Brian and Joe's suggestions, you should
also spend time on Sweet Maria's coffee library pages (http://www.sweetmarias.com/articles.shtml)and the links therein.  You may
have already spent time perusing, as you found this list, but it's a wealth
of information, suggestions, and faqs about all things coffee.
Best,
Kris McN

You will find a lot of info that way, and it is a good way to develop

replies won't be so shocking.

thank you I have already searched and found that technivorm with swissgold filter or Bunn Pour-omatic are good ones----I also found a lot of you had or have parents like mine---instant coffee or canned grind----like you---when my parents moved here (Calif) from back east I went out and got them a grinder, beans from Peet's and coffeepot. Being a chef I also outfitted their kitchen and used to go down to them (I'm SF-they were LA) every six weeks and cooked up food for their freezer and yes I was the only one who used the grinder and Peet's. They told me it was strong. They used 1/2 & 1/2 in their coffee. I drink mine black. They told me I was a coffee snob and had lived in Calif too long. So here I am on a coffee blog loving all the new information I'm learning and after the decision of coffee pot I will start researching do my own roasting.
thanks,
andrea

Andrea,
Be sure to ask the list any questions that arise in your research, of
drip coffee makers or anything else related to coffee. As you are
finding, there are many opinions among the various list members, lots
of food for thought.
Warning: As Kris pointed out recently:
You all have ruined my sense of what is normal!
Reading this list can skew your perception of "normal" when it comes to coffee!!

As a chef an analogy that you would understand, homeroasted coffee is as
different from commercially roasted coffees even from most specialty
roasters as homegrown tomatoes are from grocery store commercially grown
tomatoes.  I have discovered numerous wonderful flavors in coffees that I
never would have dreamed could come from coffees.  Tom does an incredible
job of continuously finding these wonderful coffees for us!
