I am really new to home roasting, I use a westbend air popper and a =
popcorn pumper air popper that a friend gave me to help me get started. =
I have tried several types of beans. I prefer the central American beans =
and the African beans. Still working on the brewing method I like. But =
my preferred method of getting a quick jolt of the Caffeine is to grind =
a teaspoon of beans  place the grind in a small piece of filter and tuck =
it between my cheek and gum. I am them set for the next few moments =
while the brew in finishing. I really enjoy the interaction of the folks =
on the list. so willing to share information and methods. I have only =
been roasting for about a month and can not say that I have had a bad =
cup of coffee( that I have made) the learning curve has not been to bad. =
I had to decide what type of roast I liked, kind of a medium dark. My =
friend talked to me about the cracks and there timing. My roasters are =
very hot and go from 1st to 2nd very quickly. I have to be very watchful =
to get the roast I want. I all way get a caffeine buzz cause I spend so =
much time looking into the roast chamber. Now I just have to teach my =
loving wife to not be afraid of grinding the beans a bit finer and using =
just a bit more grounds to the brew basket, she likes her coffee a =
little lighter than I. the solution maybe to get a twin pot brewer. =
thanks for letting me eves drop on our conversation. I was joking about =
the coffee between cheek and gum, but when you think about it a little =
bit it begins to sounds like a not so bad idea.hummmmmmm.
