" I bought mine and a nice grinder over 10 years ago and it is still going strong!  Love it.  If they are serious about espresso at home - this is my machine of choice!"

"Do you mean other than a nice popcorn popper?  That/s how I started and now I've had a coffee roasting, full espresso bar business for over ten years."

my mac has issues with bx so I don't get on here much anymore. I need a new computer. So here's my contact info call or write me soon and we can hang if you want to. 607.342.5824 on my way to cincy today to drink some clover-ed coffee. There will be a barista jam there in Sept which I am excited about. Talk to you soon. Hope the smoke smells good. Jesse

SLOW iS Me...Colombian taste notes: nice viscosity (very oily on my tongue), medium body, a few floral and fruity notes especially as cup cooled, about a 6 or 7 in acidity, and overall pretty well balanced. I did detect some slightly grassy tastes, but that could have been roast freshness? According to your roast date it was about 6 days out when I cupped. Keep it rollin and can't wait to get some ethiopia soon...I'll just try to get back to you sooner on that ;')

Yes - we've given up on the for now. Not enough funding for the renovation - so we bought a roaster and are working on a small micro roasting business - so far we are doing well.
