1) From: R.N.Kyle
Thanks Ed, the Papua New Guinea, arrived today. My first impression, =
Nice Roast, wonderful dry aroma, even better wet aroma, and the coffee =
was wonderful.
I love the smoothness that a drum roaster imparts, along with increased =
body. This is one of my favorite coffees also, sweet, aromatic, good =
body, and long finish, a well balance cup of Joe. I have already =
consumed 2 cups.
Now lets see who will be next? The 3rd person who sends me a reply off =
list will receive one of my favorite roast. Yauco Selecto, 02 crop or =
the 03 crop your choice. I will be roasting with a WBI and using a 13 =
min profile to a nice full city roast, a couple of cracks into 2nd. I =
will include the profile in detail with the coffee.I think it is best =
that the roaster pays the postage, to keep it simple.So you choose and =
I'll roast, and pay the postage.

Speaking of which, an unmarked bag of roasted coffee packaged in those
gold/clear zip bags arrived today UPS from persons unknown. Return address
Richie Arnold / Mail Boxes Etc #3526 / Marshall TX. Who, what, and why?:) I
plugged in the UPS tracking number, origin scan Longview TX Jan 24, last
Friday. Unfortunately tracking doesn't give who sent it!
Going over to Miss Silvia make a couple Americanos with it now...

I'm glad you liked it.
For the record, I only posted the shipping cost for reference.  I didn't
expect to be paid for it.  I hope you understood that.  Enjoy.

A spontaneous coffee exchange?  Wow.  Free coffee in my mailbox.  What a
dream come true.  or...
"Just send this chain letter to ten of your friends, and within a week,
you'll begin receiving package after package of homeroasted beans!"
heheheh
Please let us know if you solve the mystery.  Would the real Ritchie Arnold,

Since I'm sitting here sipping on some excellent PRYS that you all 
missed out on, I figured it was time to post what is available. I have;
Donkey
Classic
Monkey
Kona Blue Sky
Kona Mountain
Mama Cata
Moka Kadir
Yirg
Harar
African Highland Decaf
Guat Antigua Decaf
I'll probably use my new WBII since it will handle a 1/4 in one roast, 
(unless you really want a FR roast), and I should have my replacement 
variac by then. Tell me in terms of crack where you want it, and which 
bean you want. I'll shoot for about a 13 minute roast. I'm best at right 
about 2nd.
However, You have to be the 5th caller to name your prize (gives the 
variac time to get here)
FYI, the PRYS is even tastier when it cools!

<Snip>
Are you saying your variac died?! Which one was it, the made in China 5A
overfused or 20A made in China or other? What, where & how? Just curious,
it's usually pretty tough to kill a variable transformer, not much to them.
Guess you tried extra hard!:)

Actually it wasn't the variac, it was the 20 amp rated switch. Just went 
poof when I turned it off.

What you need now Ben is a good poof reader to tell you why it happened :O)

11) From: Ben Treichel
First, I spent the rest of the night getting my vanity label together.
Second, sorry Ed, try again later.
Third, I am running out of sources for 'poof'ed parts. Its strange that 
that switch is so hard to find.

Hey guys I can now add Randy Roys PRYS to the roast list. Remember, this 
is a great coffee to learn a lesson from.
FYI, so far I've only had one response, maybe I should give it to Ed? Or 
maybe I'll send the PRYS to those after #5. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Well I now have two variacs and three roasters. And I'm going to declare
Ed the next recipient of the coffee exchange since MM & I are going to 
trade Kona Roasts.
Therefore ED, Pick from the menu and let me know how you want it cooked.

I Read this after your addr email.
I've decided that its going to be the Harar Longberry MAO Horse 3174. 
Everybody's been talking about the Harar's recently. I must have gotten 
the last of it (only a l lb at that) so this will either be a 1st taste 
of an out of stock bean, or a last, if you don't have any stock. I think 
I'll take it to the first pop of 2nd in 13 or 14 minutes. 350 in 5 
minutes, and then slowly back up to close to second.
I can only hope it comes out as good for you as Ron's PRYS did for me. 
I'll include my spreadsheet data after I roast it.

17) From: Ben Treichel
Ed,
Your coffee is on its way. It was roasted at 10:33, down to 200 1:45 
later, and bagged at room temp by 10:37.
I roasted the Harar Longberry MAO Horse 3174, to 440 F in 13:00 minutes 
using a FR+ mod'ed to control the voltage on both the fan and heater. 
This mod's also allow the FR to roast 4 oz. This is the data for the roast:
Temp         Time    Heater Volts
325             2:25    102.5
 >325           2:35    100.0
350             3:22    97.5
375            4:58    97.5
 >375            5:10    95.0
400            6:53      95
425            11:30    95
440            13:00    95
After 375 I use the air control to slow the roast so that the maximum 
time is spent between 375 & the end, with a very slow temp change 
between 400 & the end.  There was no 2nd crack to this coffee, however I 
was ~ 1 minute & 5 to 10 degrees away from the start.

I've never had FR+ roasted coffee.  Looking forward to it.  Horse is a real
treat.
Now I have to think about what to roast to pass on to someone else.  Hmmmm...
Thanks!

OK...It's my turn again.
This afternoon, Chuck Koby and I roasted the last (3.25 pounds) of the Papua
New Guinea- Kinjibi I got when I went to Barry Jarrett's post-Christmas
coffee bash in St. Louis.  We had a ball roasting, drinking espresso, playing
with his Zach and Dani's roaster and talking about jobs, families and coffee.
I think Chuck is the only poster, other than me in the immediate Louisville
area.  There's only a million people around here, and two posters to
alt.coffee and the Homeroast list.
OK!
Up for grabs is some of the Papua New Guinea- Kinjibi we roasted today.  It
goes to the first one to email me off list.
You know the rules.  If you accept this offer, you need to send some of your
homeroast to someone else on the list.
Good Luck!

Oh yeah...
Also drum roasted some of Tom's Monkey Blend.  My first drum roast of Monkey.
I can't wait to try that tomorrow as espresso.  It smells heavenly.  I could
substitute the Monkey for the PNG as the Coffee Exchange bean if someone had
a preference.

We did have a ball, and the PNG is GREAT!  Had some
yesterday when I got home to celebrate UK's win over
LSU, and finished the pot watching UL beat Marquette
(that may have made it taste even better :-))  It sure
is fun to live in Louisville during basketball season
Whoever gets this will be one happy camper.

Chuck,
   Good to find another Wildcat fan.  Wondering how long UL will have Rick's
service... somebody out there has more money :O)  Its great to see the two
teams in first and second place.  I always thought that Louisville was a fun
place to live all year - now that the highway is finished messing with the
bridge.
John - looking for my PNG - its here someplace

23) From: Chuck Koby
Finished messing with the bridge?  This city has spent
about $3,000,000.00 on studies to determine where and
how many bridges should be built, 3 people indicted
for bribery with respect to the bridge, and god knows
what else.  I'm 40, and I'll probably be an old man to
feeble to roast by the time they decide, let alone
build :-)  
Besides that, Louisville is a great place to live.
Chuck

Kentucky-land of beautiful horses and fast women-or wuz it vice versa-ever
go to the grill in the Brown Hotel-interesting place-parents used to take us
kids there eons ago and check out the sights.

25) From: Chuck Koby
Its still there.  That is where the ever famous "hot
brown" sandwich came from.  I use to work 2 blocks
from there, and went to the grill occasionally, on
someone else if at all possible.

If nobody else has claimed it, I'd love to try the PNG.  But.. bare in mind
that I'll only offer CRLM to keep the tradition going.
John - thinking coffee roasting is a LOT easier than Hamming :o)

I received my drum roasted Monkey Blend from Ed Needham today.  My turn to
exchange with someone.  Either of my two favorite coffees for Americanos are
available:
Guatemalan Huehuetenango Finca Huixoc
Tanzanian Peaberry Southern District
Please indicate your desired roast level.
The third person to contact me offlist gets the coffee.  I have a WBII with
a ducted exhaust at 115V that gets to first crack in about 6:30 and start of
second crack around 13 minutes.
