Hah!
"I managed to finish all 3 batches before things started getting more
<Snip>
As I recall, it turned out I didn't nail that Gesha roast at all.  It was
pretty flat and lifeless and not what it could have been (the proof of the
coffee is in the drinking after all).  Seems I underestimated just how
distracting labor was to my on-the-fly profiling.  An object lesson, to be
sure.   ;-)
All the best to the Expectants!

3) From: Ryan M. Ward
You know, if there is one thing that I am proud of in life, it is the fact that I got my other half addicted to coffee(it only took 4 years and a Silvia). I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to make her first cappuccino (tonight was not the night by the way, at least not yet, doctors plan to induce if she is not here by next Wednesday). At our Lamaze class, Kaylene was the one that asked when the espresso bar closed in the maternity ward(I asked if I could bring an espresso machine in with me). 
But seriously, roasting while in labor! That is just plain impressive. My hat tips to you!
One more day till the Sulawesi beans arrive- waiting waiting waiting!!!

I have one son and one daughter (out of my four adult kids) who are coffee
drinkers. The other daughter likes it, but she finds it doesn't agree with
her (I tell her it's the swill they are selling) and the other son insists
all coffee is the same (only drinks it when he needs to stay awake).
I'm fortunate that the son who is currently living with me is totally sold
on homeroast. He even, in desperation (when I was out one day & he finished
the last of our homeroast), roasted a small amount in my absense (came out
pretty good, too). I roast stove top, so it was mostly a matter of knowing
watching what I do...
My most fun is when my seventeen month grandson is visiting - he comes
running when he hears the grinder, and I always let him sniff the grinds.
My son says it's in his genes - he will, I'm hoping, be my homeroast prodigy
someday!!
:D
By the way - a belated welcome to the group, Ryan.

Kris, my daughter was visiting from New Haven last week (her boyfriend's
sister was going to be induced the next day - she had a beautiful second
boy!) While we were making coffee (oh, and when I melted my second Mokapot,
lol) I was telling her about you and Luna Bee! So glad Allon posted this...
How is she these days (now that I'm a grandma, I seem to be kid-krazy!!!)?
We need updated pics!
And Ryan - best of luck to Kaylene, and be sure to let us know when you are
a dad!! How exciting!!
