Topic: Pulled the Trigger (13 msgs / 261 lines)
1) From: Barry Luterman
OK just ordered my Quest M3. I was going to wait for the warm weather before
ordering. Then I started to reason that there are a bunch of others doing
the same thing. Therefore, if I wait they might sell out and I would have to
wait a few extra months. OK so it's a rationalization but I did it. Now I
have to play poker tonight. I have a goal.

Nice move Barry, I'm jealous. I will be sending my best poker face your way.
I can hear your new drum turning already.

6) From: Robert Bedwell
It makes a marvelous conversation piece.  It's actually too pretty to mess up for roasting!  :)
Let's see if your reaction is the same as mine.   It's a lot smaller than I ever imagined.  In fact it almost looks like a toy!
Beautiful craftsmanship.  I can't wait until it warms up enough to use mine.  Too bad I don't have a "man cave" to roast in!
Enjoy.

Also now I have increased the value of my coffee. My coffee now costs out at
about $60 per pound

Barry -
Good move, IMO. After months of reading about this thing I decided to 
pull the trigger back in early December, but they were out of stock. 
I got on the waiting list, and mine just arrived last night.
My initial reaction was similar to Bob's: It was smaller than I 
expected. It is, however, a beautiful thing to behold.
They boxed it extremely well (triple-boxed, with a generous layer of 
peanuts in the outer box). It arrived in pristine condition.
Have you looked at the various exhaust mods people have done? Even 
though I am in Florida, we get cold snaps significant enough to 
impact roasting. Thus I am looking into building something to allow 
me to roast in the house if needed.

BTW: I'm not sure people here remember me. It's been several years 
since I posted. I'm the one who put up a page on Earthlink back in 
2007 showing how to modify an iRoast 1 with a rigid thermocouple down 
through the top lid and chaff collector. That page went off-line last 
year. I bought that iRoast in early 2005, and I've been using it 
every week since then (although it's about to finally be retired!).

I'll disagree. It may cost out more, but the value is priceless.
Congratulations.

BS Garley,
I totally agree. If we price shop there would be no need for Tom's greens or
homeroasting. We could just by ground roasted coffee in a "seal" bag down
the street. Coffee Gods forbid....and
Slap me to the grounds for saying that.  Please don't 86 me folks I was
having flashbacks when I bought instant Sanka many years ago because it was
cheap. The quality attainable now is priceless. This topic just reinforces
for me that life is not so much about the cost of our journey as it is the
quality of the experience.

Don't let the cold stop you.
I'm getting good results with my Quest in an unheated garage where the
ambient temp is regularly below freezing.  I make sure it is well warmed up
and have a small quartz heater blowing warm air towards the intake port.
it seems to work fine.  i can get 1C in 6 minutes with 1/2 lb load if I want
to.

Work and a North Alabama freak 9 inch snow storm has kept me busy.
GREAT Choice.  I absolutely love  mine.  You can go stock, but I would
be surprised if the upgrade bug doesn't bite you.  I have done an
exhaust, a funnel, and have a data logger hooked to my Macbook Pro.
I am roasting the best coffee in ten years.
You can go where ever you want with your roasting now.
