Well, I had a sucky weekend.
Tore up my hands doing a timing belt job on the WRX (I know, OT don't subaru...) redoing that same timing belt job after discovering that I had pinched the water-pump gasket, and generally having a bit of a bad attitude.
So, I thought I would take a break and roast up some coffee. Got 3 batches through my itty-bitty air-roaster and it was getting dark, so I stopped at 3 (Good for about 7-8 days at my house) and carried stuff back into my house. I apparently didn't have a good grip on the roaster as the glass carafe tumbled off and hit the tile floor (many 4 letter words said).
So, I decided (and the wife went for) to upgrade my roasting. Still not quite ready for a fully manual approach like poison uses, so I head over to Sweet Maria's looking for a drum roaster.
I was ready to plonk down for the Behmor roaster, but then the wife looks over my shoulder and spots the Gene Cafe roaster. Says it looks much sexier, and looks like it would be easier to hit a roast level, and would make me a better roaster as it has time and temp that you can adjust on the fly.
Hopefully it gets here in enough time to roast another batch before I run out of what I roasted already.
Did I mention that I felt like using smilies?
