[Homeroast] What long strange trip it's been!

I am still using one of your two 1/2-3/4 lb. roasters that you used for your 
shop when it first opened. You must have run them nearly 24-7. I remember 
that the heater on the one I bought from you had sagged due to use beyond 
its design parameters. The one I replaced it with is still in use. The CCR 
Hot Top makes a great home roaster, but is ridiculously undersized for pro 
use. Your 3 K roaster is probably starting to feel that way now with several 

Happy holidays to all.

This month began year 10 since turning coffee professional. Back then it was
tough to justify let alone pay for a full pallet (10 bags) of greens.
Yesterday was the first time having 3 pallets delivered the same day. Posted
a video on FB of my current greens "stash" if interested.


Did a quick count after the 30 bags arrived resulting in 125 bags ~16,971.5
pounds greens on hand. A far cry from when my home roasting stash went over
200lb and went on a buying moratorium a decade or so ago! Still have 55 more
bags on contract to bring in the next couple months. But big difference
these will all be roasted in far less time than that 200lb home stash was
back then :-)

Yeah I'll be getting a larger roaster before too long but also a bigger
Roastery location in the search phase. NEED more serious greens storage

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
