Never understood the home roasting of coffee "thing" - seemed like a hassle to me. Yesterday I received some Guatamalan coffee, roasted fresh by Metsfan. Lordy! A coffee epiphany! I'll be ordering green beans and the other bits and goodies soon. Jumping Horny Toads, this is awesome coffee...

Thanks much MF!

Another coffee whackjob has been created. My missionary work must continue though.

This calls for a very special blend of psychology and extreme violence.

Check out Martin's new bb (www.mayorgaimports.com). He's also selling a roaster now.

So, if you don't have a garage to roast in... and you don't want to set off the smoke alarms... solve that!

Unplug the smoke alarms.
