I won a cup from Ginny a few weeks ago and have not had time to put something up, so finally here it is: 1. A west bend popper. Older green and white model, has the switch on the side. 2. Swiss gold one cup coffee maker, brand new from Sweet Marias. I asked for a Ibrik for my birthday and got a S/G instead, since I have one already I'll offer this one. Send me an email, take your pick and I'll mail it out to the 1st responce sent offline.
Ron takes the swiss gold, and thank you Gin for the espresso cup! <Snip> already <Snip>http://www.sweetmarias.com/maillistinfo.html
Sorry to say I still owe a tradition from when I won a coffee scoop from Ginny waayyyyy backkkk. Honestly, it has been very difficult for me to select (part with) stuff that I may need sometime in the future. You know I wrecked my first Pumper by trying to modify it, and figured I would be going through these things very quickly. Needless to say, if you do not stay up too late to work on them, and you do plug them into the right voltage outlet, they will last a very long time :) Sooo, I am willing to (must) part with one of my superior West Bend Poppery II's. This is an unused (by myself), unmodified version that seems very strong and quiet. I must say that these work fine for roasting coffee right out of the box. If you want to roast more than one batch at a time, the second and third batches are very quick! This model does NOT have a butter dish built into the top. It is 1200 Watts, and probably has never been used. No smell of popcorn. :) Please email me off list, and I will do the drawing (or C will) next tuesday afternoon. PeterZ <Snip>
What is this tradition? I was not here when it started, if it even started here. John F
The tradition is a gift giving practice. If you put your name in for Peter's offering and you win the drawing, he sends you the offering. The only condition is that you offer something coffee related up to the list and those who enter the drawing for your offering agree to continue the tradition if they win. There are about three or four tradition threads going on now. I'm waiting on the receipt of a pound of Malabar Gold after which I'll offer up something. To simplify the process the person sending the gift pays for shipping. It is just one of the things that makes this list a bit more civil than most.
