Nazis roasted coffee.
There.  Now, according to Godwin's law, the flame war is over, and I 
lose.  (It's true, you can look it up.)  Now, no more flaming, it's 
Christmas.

Dear Andy,
Disagreement and discussion of differing points of view are not
"flaming". Expressing different opinions and one's reasons for holding
them is called "debate".  Flaming is when one engages in ad hominem
attacks.  Now please relax and don't get so upset when the folks argue a
bit. It is all in good fun.

Cathy:
Andy just missed the "spirit" of things, I guess . . . but maybe it's because I 
haven't made my own views sufficiently clear.  I think wok roasting is a 
*great* idea . . . and not only because of the obvious (and compelling) 
advantage of a unimpeeded sight line to the beans for the IR thermometer . . . 
.  You *can* directly see, and hear, and smell the beans roasting, and it is 
both a delightful and informative experience.  Combined with simultaneous 
direct measurement of bean temperature during the roasts a few sessions of wok 
or pan roasting can dramatically shorten the "learning curve" for any home 
roaster, whatever their "normal" roasting method, and give insights into the 
process that might otherwise take months or even years to acquire.  It 
certainly gives a whole new appreciation of what's going on in those little 
countertop roasters, and what their advantages are.  Even folks who don't have 
a high volume hood and a shop-vac in the kitchen (for the chaff that gets away) 
should try it at least a couple of times . . . the smoke's not all that bad, 
really, unless you seriously set out char the beans.  And it's a great excuse 
to buy that IR thermometer you always wanted anyway . . . .
