NW...funny story. This guy came in looking for a job. He worked in a commercial grade roastery for years. I was talking to him while I was roasting...when I dropped the french roast I was roasting..he reached in and grabbed a bean. Before I had a chance to warn him he popped it in his mouth. I could hear it sizzling in his mouth..he told me that the beans on his roaster were cooled by quenching and they where not as hot as the one he just threw in his mouth. I have to give it to him...he didn't scream or even spit it out..he just sat their looking scared :grin: haha :grin:
