Tom, Will you be getting more Ugandas in any time soon? I've been using the lovely Budadiri you had for sale in my espresso blend, but I'm almost out, and you don't seem to have any for sale! Is the Uganda Aa Mbale Bugisu you have similar? Thanks! Bruce ------------- Bruce Harlick Freelance writer, editor, game designerhttp://www.newblackboard.comICQ #4166560
Quoting Bruce Harlick : <Snip> Check the What's New section of the web site. Tom is in Panama and probably won't be putting up any new listings this week. But this hasn't stopped Maria from shamelessly teasing us about some new Kenyas! Ah well, my 7 lb. "variety pack" should arrive Monday and keep me amused for a while. Steve wall
Bruce: Funny you mention Ugandas, my sister brought me back 4 pounds of roasted Ugandas last summer, they lasted two weeks. I usually put some of the coffees she brings me aside so I can treat myself later but not with these, what wonderful coffee in my espresso machine. They were actually from 4 different very small farms she visited. Since I have started roasting I have put in my order for greens! I asked if my green order would be 3 or 4 times as large since the price would be less, she has not responded yet! ginny ps: I have seen the Hot Top pics...
Tom, I'm afraid you missed my question in the pile of list email. Can you tell me what the air manifold on the second set of Jabez Burns sample roasters does? Apparently it pulls air through the drum...but for what specific purpose? Thanks! Gene Smith riding the wild learning curve, in Houston
Hey, Tom...do you ever do decaf sample packs? Or are the sample packs a caf-only deal? Gene Smith just plain hot, in Houston
Yes we do - if you send an "order comment" after you place an order for a sample, you can request decaf. We didn't add it as an option because we don't get a ton of requests ...

Pounds work fine for me. I have used the metric system all my life in my work, but why ask Tom to make a major change to satisfy a few people?

it would be hugely difficult simply in the number of emails we would receive on this, the difficulty comparing prices, and converting all our tip sheets etc. But the main issue is that Lbs and Oz are the standard for selling roasted coffee. I have never heard of a small US roaster selling by the gram. And that's basically the trade we are in, the top tier of specialty coffee. tom -- "Great coffee comes from tiny roasters" Sweet Maria's Home Coffee Roasting - Tom & Maria http://www.sweetmarias.com Thompson Owen george_at_sweetmarias.com Sweet Maria's Coffee - 1115 21st Street, Oakland, CA 94607 - USA phone/fax: 888 876 5917 - tom_at_sweetmarias.com Homeroast mailing list Homeroasthttp://lists.sweetmariascoffee.com/listinfo.cgi/homeroast-sweetmariascoffee.com
5 pounds yield very near 9 of your standard loads.
Not Tom but simple solution. 227g/.5lb batches work just fine in the HotTop keeping lbs even. Or if 5# bag can do nine 252g batches etc... <Snip> Homeroast mailing list Homeroasthttp://lists.sweetmariascoffee.com/listinfo.cgi/homeroast-sweetmariascoffee.com
I measure and roast in grams. When the last load is less than a full load, I even out with a new bean. Thus, I have Kimel-Kinunu awaiting me on Saturday morning - a 1 popper load of unapproximate proportions... Be Cool!

Well, my Behmor is marked in POUNDS and fractions of pounds, that is the standard measurement system for the USA. We are (most of us anyway) are located in the USA. If you want to use a foreign made device it is your responsibility to do the conversion, its not hard. Even if you are handicapped with a public school education. I just consider all of the metric talk as a small chronic dose of pedantry.

That is pretty much what I thought, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. Mike
While I like and prefer the metric system. I have no problem with Lbs and ounces. As far as our kids having trouble learning metrics, heck I think it is MORE valuable for them to learn how to convert from one to another. 1LB = 454 grams, 1 oz = 28 grams. Just my two cents worth. Hmmm ... how many pence is that? dave On Feb 21, 2008, at 10:19 AM, Mike Chester wrote: <Snip> Homeroast mailing list Homeroasthttp://lists.sweetmariascoffee.com/listinfo.cgi/homeroast-sweetmariascoffee.com
12 pence per shilling, 20 shillings per pound sterling, if I remember correctly. I don't know if twopence (tuppence) was a single coin or not. I think Australia was the last nation to let go of pound/shilling/pence coinage back in the 70s On Fri, Feb 22, 2008 at 9:20 PM, Dave Ehrenkranz wrote: <Snip> Homeroast mailing list Homeroasthttp://lists.sweetmariascoffee.com/listinfo.cgi/homeroast-sweetmariascoffee.com
