I didn't read the whole thing yet, but it seems accurate and positive!

  Of course, they then link you over to hand mills (nice) and a whole 
slew of percolators (ick!)  At least they have a token French press 
selection.
Lehman's is my favorite "candy store" of neat goodies.  I could easily 
become one of those people living on 'the back 40' with a wood 
cookstove, solar/hydro power, teams of oxen, and no electricity.  It'd 
be tough to order beans from Tom and Maria, though....

Hi all.  I've been lurking here for a few weeks, and just started stovetop 
roasting about two weeks ago (Whirly-pop).  I have questions, but first I 
want to comment on the article that mentions Sweet Maria's:  There seem to 
be a couple of inaccuracies.  For one thing, the author talks about 
roasting on the stovetop over the lowest heat setting.  I wonder if that 
won't bake the beans.  Then she talks about immediately grinding and 
brewing the fresh roast, but nearly everything I've read and in my 
still-limited experience, the beans need to rest a few hours before 
brewing.  I find that my freshly roasted beans don't really smell much like 
coffee until 4-12 hours later.
Anyway, as a former copy editor, bad information in published articles 
pushes all my buttons.

 You're right about the stovetop roasting inacuracy, Leslie. A
frying pan or wok needs to be on pretty high heat to roast well.
 Brewing right away is more a question of personal taste. I love
grinding and brewing some of the roast still warm from the oven.
There's a certain "something" that's lost after a rest. Aroma is
one of the rewards of waiting, though. Nice of you to come out
of the lurking closet ;o) Now, what are your questions?

I dunno, I haven't tried yet.  I *notice* lots of problems in published 
text, but I don't don't generally write to tall the publication about thos 
problems.  I suppose I should, but I might spend a WHOLE lotta time doing 
it then.  I'm frequently amazed by the awful mistakes that get published.
