   Yup, another homebrewer and homeroaster here.  And, as was assumed a
   couple of days ago, a bread baker.  These are parallel solutions to
   bland and unsatisfactory offerings in the general marketplace.
   I try not to act like a snob about Kleenex bread, BudMiller beer or
   MaxFolgers coffee.  I just want better stuff.

   Amen, brother!  "Better stuff" is right.  I started homebrewing in 
'95 as a way to get fresher good beer.  The craft beer craze had started 
to turn me off due to the sameness of what was supposed to be a better 
product, and the imports were stale by the time they were in the store. 
  Started producing wine from California Cab Sauv grapes a few years 
ago, just to try something new.  I bake sourdough, roll my own 
cigarettes (European Drum), and now have started homeroasting.  It 
doesn't take very much extra effort to make something that's every bit 
as good, if not better than, store-bought.
   OK, back to coffee for a moment.  I haven't heard anyone else mention 
it, so...  I ordered the Colombian Narino Vintage from SM's a little 
while back.  I use a FR+ and roast 15 -20 sec into second crack and come 
up with a very nice cup, especially after it cools down.  I normally add 
a small amount of raw sugar to my coffee, this is the first time I 
remember looking forward to an "unadulterated" cup of coffee.  Smooth, 
relatively mild, and has a little natural sweet(?) flavor.  If you 
haven't tried it, I highly recommend it.
