Topic: A quick reintroduction (4 msgs / 74 lines)
1) From: Leslie H. Smith
Hi all.  I rejoined the list a month or so ago, and thought I should 
reintroduce myself before posting.  I started home roasting a little over a 
year ago, but took the summer off from both the list and roasting (due to 
an extended visit to Europe).  I mostly roast in a Whirley-Pop on an 
electric stove.  I used a Proctor Silex Popcorn Pumper for a little while 
last winter, but I wasn't happy with the roast quality, and I'm not 
interesting in doing my own mods, so for now I stick to the hard-to-control 
exactly, but mostly good-tasting Whirley-Pop (it's harder to manage the 
temperature changes with an electric stove, I imagine...  I fantasize about 
roasting over the charcoal grill in the backyard, but haven't tried it out 
yet).
Cheers!

A hearty W E L C O M E back to you Leslie!  This group is so diverse in
how they accomplish making and preparing coffee.  I'm always learning
something new from them and enjoy reading what others are doing,
experimenting, etc.  From the simplest to the most elaborate methods
possible, it's all part of the same quest for a great cup.
