Topic: Oh my my ... Coffee roasting anyone? (36 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria
This list needs Ritalin! Well, I guess that is controversial now too, 
(please no emails on the subject of Ritalin!!!) but can we please get 
some nice, solid COFFEE threads going on the list. One note to Susan 
-could you please fix the DATE on your computer -your emails do not 
get filed correctly in the mailbox because the date on your machine 
is wrong (1 day ahead).
Speaking of COFFEE, I saw a 7 kilo Diedrich for sale REALLY cheap on 
EBAY. I have never seen one for around $4000, that's a steal (if it 
has been taken care of). FYI it is wise to avoid these Has Garanti 
roasters of whatever they are called ... they are made from very poor 
castings, bearings, and non-US motors. not a good investment. I have 
been working to get the 12 K Probat installed. I plumbed the gas and 
wired the electic up to our "2nd floor" mezannine and now all I need 
is to do the venting. This will be very easy. Its less than 12 feet 
total vent pipe, whereas the Diedrich in Ohio had to go up 3 1/2 
stories!
I also fired up the new LaSanMarco 2 group, hand-pull espresso 
machine. I have a 2 group and a 1 group (which I am going to fix and 
then will need to sell to someone -hint, hint! OR someone can buy it 
as-is. Parts are readily available, it is less-used than the 2 Group 
one, both circa 1978, but I haven't determined exactly what it needs 
except for the missing shot pull-handle. These are considered by most 
the best hand-pull commercial machine ever made!) -Tom
