I could not agree more. I too love this list. It was the first list I ever
started when I started roasting
back in 1999/2000, I cannot remember for sure.
It was the first contact I had with other roasters. I bought my first Hot
Top from Sweet Maria.
I met Maria and Tom at the Northwest Gathering in Oregon...
This list was one busy list. I think with the increase and growth of the
community many more forums have popped up and it is hard to keep track of
as an owner and administrator homeroaster.org I find I do not have the time
spend on too many other lists. I try and this is one of the places I look
not much happening so I do not post as a rule...
I will try to start and add to other threads here to see if we can build it
funny this was the first and only coffee list I was suspended from, my bad
temper got me in trouble.
but Maria and Tom were very gracious as always.
