Topic: Dying Behmor (4 msgs / 114 lines)
1) From: John M. Howison
This sequence began with the dying Behmor of a pound-a-week espresso roaster.
While I shouldn't like to put a damper on anybody's home roasting, I
wonder whether there isn't a local solution for his problem.  In my
home-town of twenty-five thousand or so, in a part of the country some
people think a bit backward, my home roasting is supplmented by two
RPT two respectable coffee roasters who sell me fresh-roasted beans
when I need help.  One of them is consisstently good, and used within
a week of roasting his beans make coffee that is often as good as
mine.  He offers a blend or two, and a bag labeled "COSTA RICA" of
beans that that Tom thinks may be so good its boring.  (Tom doesn't
like to mention the name of the CR plantation, so I won't)--
This report is offered as evidence that home roasters have succeeded
in creating a few Coffee Epicures nearly everywhere.  At eighty-nine,
when my present roaster wears out, I may admit my infirmity and start
buying 12-ounce bags of beans
from That-Guy's-Coffee.  That Guy, BTW, who supplements his retirement
by roasting, got his start with samplers from Sweet Maria's.

Yep, and I have a guy several rows over at work that buys from Coffee Shrub
(or SM) and sells probably 20 - 30 lbs a week. Sometimes I buy green with
him, and some times roasted.

HI;
I did end up picking up a couple pounds from a local shop till be get
the Behmor issues figured out.  There is only one shop within around
30 miles miles that roasts their own beans; at least from what I have
found.  I think it is a respectably decent espresso roast, but isn't
my favorite.  It was a little cheaper than I remembered, around $13.50
a pound.
I almost ordered some Black Cat from Intelligentsia.  I remember that
blend being so good, but with shipping, it gets pretty expensive.
I found one other shop that is about 35 miles from here that roasts
their own in house; next time I'm near that area I will definitely
check it out.

p.s. I still have to look at the Behmor myself, but talked to my dad;
I misunderstood, the elements both worked, but the glass was cracked
around one, thus the reason he was talking about one of them being bad
/ broken.
