Thanks guys.  I like hearing about what you guys are drinking.  Liquid Amber sounds good, but I can't and will not start roasting.

Posted February 28, 2012 link

I don't mean to be contrary but why not consider roasting?

Roasting in a Behmor is quite low effort. Although you should be in the room for the whole process (particularly the 2nd half), you only need to watch closely for about four minutes (from right before 1C to end of roasting). While it takes some time, it's really not much time at all.

You'll end up spending about $7-$10 per lb of roasted coffee (you lose about 15% of the weight when you roast) so the $300 Behmor really does pay for itself in a year or so (depending on your consumption).

Because my nose doesn't work and the first thing sweetmarias says is use all 5 senses.  And right now I can't spend any more on this hobby.

Well, roasting would be a hobby, I would not be a pro roaster....

I was just picking... roasting can be inconvenient at times, but the end result makes it worthwhile.

I got you were kidding, partiality about our obsession.  I wish I could roast, but I am perfectionist and not being able to smell would make it hard for me to mix my own beans and be a good cupper.  So, I will have to be the person that pays for another's talent in roasting.  I wish I could smell. I think it is more handicapping than being color blind is and no one seems to understand it like they understand what color blind is.

Helen, I have poor hearing so I usually can't hear first crack.  I pretty much have to determine 1C by the amount of chaff released in the drum.  I can barely hear 2C, but mainly I roast by color, not smell.  You would be a great roaster because you are meticulous and observant.  I'm not trying to talk you into buying a roaster, just saying...
