Just wanted to say hi and introduce my self. I'm a former Midwesterner currently living in the Southeast (Charlotte, NC) and work in the auto racing industry. Got into coffee hardcore a few months ago when I started roasting my own beans and realized I needed to step up my brewing (used a standard drip maker and blade grinder for years). Currently roasting my own on a homemade drum roaster built here at the office (one of the perks of having a fab shop just outside my office!)  and brewing on a used Gaggia Espresso, Bodum double walled French press, and an Aeropress.

Look forward to getting to know all of ya and learning a bunch!

Thanks!
Bob
