Topic: New Tradition Offering (25 msgs / 604 lines)
1) From: Ben Treichel
Since many people have helped me out over the past year with vac pot 
parts, boiler insulation, and fan motors and didn't want anything in 
return, I'm posting a new tradition thread in honor of them.
In 50 words, or even much less, tell me why you want the item a specific 
item posted. I will award at least one of the items next Monday, maybe 
more that one. So plead, grovel, be logical, state a great need, etc. 
The award(s) will be based upon the most meritorious request (IMHO); and 
I may publish the winning request.
The items;
Dolenghi Cafe Italia
Wearever Popcorn Pumper
Lowes SS Trash Can (roaster drum)
You have to Sunday noon EST to respond.

Seems appropriate. It's after Labor Day and schools are starting so a
homework essay assignment! However, I see no reason for logic to be involved
in the dissertation:-)

I just received one of the cup and saucer sets from Ron and I will start a new
kind of Tradition offering.
I have now completed two roasts of the very same beans, an organic Brazil. Both
were exactly 200g loads. The first was with the HotTop plugged into the wall and
a voltmeter measured 120vac at all times. The second roast utilized Bob Yellin's
suggestion about slowing the ramp between the first and the second cracks by
reducing the voltage to 93v after the first crack began.
I have tasted both myself and then packed the remaining beans in airtight bags
and flushed them with nitrogen and then argon. I will send the recipient of
this Tradition Offering both bags but labelled with an 'A' and a 'B'.  It is
the winner's job to post a tasting description of the two batches of beans and
to let us know if he/she tastes any difference between them. Thus it will be a
blind tasting.
In order for the beans to be fresh, I will select the winner at 11pm PDT
Wednesday, May 12. I will send an email to the winner shortly after 11PM. I
will send the two packages of beans to the winner via Priority mail on Thursday
morning if the winner has sent me their address.
Send me your entry directly (please not to the list) and include your mailing
address so that I can send the winner the package first thing Thursday morning
without a delay.

Doesn't this mean you still owe a "regular" Tradition offer for the cup and 
saucer or was it not a Tradition offer?  Starting a new one is cool, but 
you have to finish the old one, right?

 I was incredibly lucky to win a HI Precision roaster and some
fancy greens from Terry Stockdale last week. I just picked it up
yesterday, and I love my new toy!
 I'm offering up 5 lbs of greens. Just email me offlist before
Tuesday night, June 1, and I will pick a name randomly from all
who enter. I'll anounce the winner on Wednsday.
 Greens to choose from:(first 4 just arrived yesterday, very
fresh)  Organic Colombian Mesa de los Santos
        Guatemala Antigua Los Volcanes
        Organic Uganda Bugisu
        Komodo Blend Organic Decaf
  also  Oaxacan Pluma (my personal stash from last year)
        Organic Harar
       Organic Sumatran Gayoland
       Organic Bolivian Cenoproc
       El Salvador Bourbon
 Five lbs of one, or any combo that adds up to 5 lbs.
 I'll probably have to file a notice with the FDA to bring it to
the US for mailing,(PITA!) but I'll do that. Did I mention how
much I like that little Precision roaster? I should have bought
one a long time ago for little sample batches. I can see how
they could burn out roasting *all* the coffee I drink, though.
      Long live the HR list Tradition!!

offer the following tradition of greens:
1 lb Sulawesi Toraja
1 lb Sumatra Mandheling
1 lb Timor Maubesse
1 lb Brazil Fazenda Ipanema "Dulce"
All these are late '03 current crop arrivals.

Today I cut off the bottom section of a hi temp Plexiglass convection oven.
It would be a great spacer for the SC/TO set up.
The piece is approximately 13 and 1/4 inches in diameter and 2 and 5/8 
inches high. It is about an eighth of an inch thick.
Anyone interested email me off list and I will have a drawing for it 
Sunday evening.

Sorry about the delay in commenting on this tradition.
Because the other section of the plastic hood that I had cut this from 
MELTED during my roasting, I hesitate to offer any part of it for a 
The plastic, even though it was part of a convection oven, clearly was 
not intended to function at the temperatures coffee is roasted at.
Sure would hate to have anyone ruin a good roast with  fuming plastic  
I will offer another tradition instead of this one very soon.
Please accept my apologies for withdrawing this item.

Hi Everyone,  
Thanks Ron again for the great motor!  We get in the house next
Monday, and the roasting will resume!
I have received many great gifts, some huge, some tiny, and all very
much appreciated. It's time for me to offer something as a Tradition
Offering.  I am offering eight (8) stainless steel espresso cups. 
These look really great on the warming tray of an espresso machine. 
Here's Miss Silvia showing them off, but kind of embarrassed for being
caught doing her work in the hotel room.  I told her not to worry, you
will all understand...  Please check these out if you are interested:
    http://tinyurl.com/8zdfkI would like all entries off list - meaning please don't "reply" to
this, instead write to me at homeroast and tell me you'd
like to be included.  Please pick a number between one (1) and three
hundred sixty four (364), and include this number in your email.
I will draw a number on Thursday evening - the person closest will
win!  What number am I thinking of?  I promise to tell you when I
reveal the winner!
Regards all,
OK, just for more fun...
  If you'd like to see my new baby, here's a couple pix as well:

Those are very cool Brett. This is not an entry but a thbks that I need to send poor Scott his tradition he won a month plus ago.
how is the house coming?

20) From: Brett Mason
Hi Gin,
How are you, and where are you?  Any legal stuff workin your way yet?
I saw the stainless steel cups in a local cheap store (very cheap
store) - they are labelled as dipping cups but they do the job very
nicely and look good!
Turns out I bought too many (figured 12 for me and 12 for tradition -
as you can see, the machine only holds 8 plus my tamper...  so -
what's your address?)
House is coming along great.  We move in on Monday.  I cannot believe
our good fortune on this thing...  Our interest rate is 3.875 and I am
still amazed.
Work is going really well too. Family is here, first week of school is
going on, and we're commuting from the hotel to the bus stop...  Kids
are glad to be here, the weather is a perfect 75 today - utterly
So - just for fun - pick a number between 1 and 364 - I won't put you
in the tradition, as you already won these 8 cups...
Love to you and the girls,
Brett, and Deb & boys too!
very cool Brett. This is not an entry but a thbks that I need to send
poor Scott his tradition he won a month plus ago.

All is well, go to Oregon again on the 28th of September, so at least I get to spend my birthday home and not you know where!!
All should be fine, we hope.
Waiting for the local farmer's markets to start so I can sell my coffee.
I told you your move would be a great thing, all sounds just wonderful.
love to all,

Yo, Brett!

Thanks for offering them and for picking my number.

Just so that I do not get behind again (if I even am behind), but just 
to make sure, I am offering a new tradition right away.
Seems I had a premonition, so I just acquired this item, and it is brand 
new still in the box.
Please, do not ask me how to use it,
but I have seen it mentioned on the list several times,
and it is raved about in some circles,
and I have never seen one until lately.
It is an 'as seen on TV'
EZ Stir Hands-Free Stovetop stirring system!
The drawing on the box shows it mounted on the top of a pot by means of 
three extensions, and it is stirring a pot of stew or something.
Anyway, it requires 4 AA batteries to run, and they are not included.
It comes with instructions and a small recipe book.
It stirs any dish that requires continuous stovetop stirring.
Maybe it will work with a whirly pop, or even with a heat gun set up.
This also includes a BONUS vegetable slicer.
Just googled and found what it is on Amazon:
Please email me off list to be in the drawing next Saturday April 19, 2008.
Best to all,
Well, it did NOT get to 100F today, here in LHC, only 96F.
