TC = thermocouple
FC = first crack or Full City

That's exactly what happened when I saw your new pic, dude! Turn the hat back around and pull the bill down lower - PLEASE!


TC can be TurboCrazy bean roaster or thermocouple. Context is all important.

TIA - Thanks in advance (when you ask for help).

TANFL - There ain't no free lunches; shortened from There Aint' No Such Thing As A Free Lunch (everything has good & bad prices to pay).

IIRC  "If I Remember Correctly"

IMHO also means "In My Humble Opinion"

Along with HG- Heat Gun, there is also usually DB or HG/DB- dog bowl

LM- LaMarazocco
TV-Technivorm (usually someone has already said the brand elsewhere in the thread)
SM- SweetMarias.com
HB- Home-Barista.com
EPNW- Espresso Parts Northwest (EspressoParts.com)
IR/IR-2- IRoast/IRoast 2 bean roaster
HT- Hottop bean roaster
FR/FR-8- Fresh Roast bean roaster

All I can think of right now that haven't already been mentioned...

HTH (ha.... hth-Hope this helps)
