 Hello everyone,
I have to confess, yes I am a lurker. I have been on this list a couple of weeks but have had little time to actively participate in the discussions. So, I lurk no more. This is one of the best lists I have been on in a long time. The threads are informative and at times amusing. I have learned much from all of you. Thanks a bunch.
Here is a little about me. I live in The Colony, TX, a burb of Dallas and I started home roasting about two months ago using a WBII and a Pumper. Still experimenting on what beans I like and degree of roast. I don't know about anyone else, but my whole family gets involved when I roast. My oldest son (9) wants his own popper so he can roast and he can tell me when 1st and 2nd crack occurs. He doesn't drink any coffee but it won't be long.
Have a great day!

Ron,
I have tried the Sulawesi, Kenya Karumandi auction Lot '02, Huehuetenango, Sumatra triple pick, and a Brazilian that I was not impressed with. It very well could have been my inexperience with roasting. I really liked the KKA and the Sulawesi and found the roast I liked the best. Just to second crack.

Thanks Les. I am so glad it is not that hard to find green. I am thankful for Tom and Maria. I discovered that you could actually roast coffee at home on the Internet about 6 months ago. It has been a lot of fun for me and my kiddos.

I have not tried the KKA as of yet. I am quite fond of the Sulawesi, =
wonderful rich body. Another one of my favorite is Guatemala Antique. I =
really like a heavy bodied variety of coffee verses a bright and snappy. =
have fun
