Default Yet another slippery Slope!!!!!

Well, I have fallen victim to another hobby / addiction. I love coffee, especially with a good stick. I started poking around in the Coffee forum a couple of months ago and was very intrigued.
I am a do-it-yourselfer by nature. I build my own fishing rods, I have been making lures for 20 years, I smoke my own meats and cheeses, so why not roast my own coffee.
Man am I having fun!!!! I got my order of 6 different pounds form Sweet Maria's and its been non stop ever since.
This morning I pressed some Sumatra Blue Batak Tarbarita Peaberry (city+). What a great roast! My review skills are poor so I will save you the agony, but there is no turning back now.
Thanks for all the knowledge and info here.

Brent

I've been so tempted after sampling Drews (Ghostrider) home roasted additions to the coffee pass. Must resist though...must resist.

Resistance is futile

So much better than store bought. Cheap roaster (Hot air Popper). For the price I can afford many more variaties.
Better watch out Brendan, there might be some fresh roast on its way to the North East if you're not carefull.

Great sport and better coffee. I hope you get as much pleasure from the hobby as I have.

I'm with you! Nothing beats a nice smoke and a good cup of joe in the morning on the weekend. Two of my favorites are Stumptown out of Portland and Sisters coffee in central Oregon.
