    Thx for the pass! Ill have to look into the home roasting thing. I have a pretty strong game of grinding and brewing. 5 different brewing methods but mostly do pour overs. Looks like roasting is a logical next step:)

    Sounds like it is. The benefit is that you're getting good, very high-quality coffee for about $6-$8 per 12-13 ounces of roasted coffee (the green beans lose about 20% weight during roasting). Versus many of the boutique type roasteries you can purchase from online, where those prices are about 2-3 times (or greater) more expensive.

    It can be as simple as buying an electric popcorn popper of the proper style (LINK and LINK), or even roasting it on a stovetop in a skillet. Lots of information to be had on coffeegeek and even Sweet Maria's (a well-known green bean seller). I would highly recommend doing it outside though!

    Let us know if you have questions!

    PS - Fair warning though, this is a rabbit hole with NO bottom... :eek:

    Awesome! Thanks for the info. Lots of research to do. I am still falling down a few other rabbit holes. What’s one more gonna hurt?
    Eta: already have a great northern popcorn popper for the stove top. Ill just start with that. Let the madness begin

    The secret santa sounds fun. I’ll have to get in next year, that gives me a year to get my coffee roasting perfected. Have fun.

    Beyond Black BRCC brew with my new puukko.
    I’ve thought about roasting my own but I’m not sure if I want to go down that rabbit hole just yet

    I’ve done it a few times. There is a ton of satisfaction when you get it just right..... but trial and error is brutal. Just buy up some air poppers when you see them and try it.

    TLE Sharp and I were talking about the Secret Santa Swap. He suggested we do USEFUL knives and some fun, crazy, silly extra gifts that would add even more mystery to it.
    Let me know what you think....

    Useful? Hmm, I'll have to think on that.

    Are we talking new or lightly used this year? Still keeping it under $100?

    I'm not even hung up on useful. I've got useful knives. I'm sure nobody who's participating in this is hurting for a practical cutting tool.

    I've always been a big fan of odd, interesting, silly or gag gifts. I'd be happy to receive something that's more entertaining than it is useful. A Vic Cadet and a quad bladed batarang to annoy the wife maybe.

    That might even be a fun little exercise: say a ~$50 limit on legitimate knife and then a "worst knife" addition. Something silly to play with.

    I was wondering when you would come aboard....
    PM me your shipping info....

    I will do whatever rules you guys want. We should probably be thinking about it and finalizing so people can gather items....
