Great forum and I have been lurking now for a while. Starting roasting 32 hours ago and just tried my first cup (couldn't wait any longer even though it is 8 pm so I probably will have trouble getting to sleep)... I recently bought a Burr mill and a West Bend Poppery I (the old one) from Ebay. Beans are CCM ('Kenya AA Fancy').

Earlier I bought some Jamaican Blue "Type" roasted beans from 'Amazon' and the flavor was incredible. Awaiting an order from Sweet Maria's with several green beans for drip and an espresso blend.

I watched a ton of informative youtube videos prior to first roast, etc. and have read a lot of info (from here and other places).

Still a n00b at this but I love coffee and have never tasted it until this week, I think. I can't wait for the mornings now to get up and prepare me and my wife a cup of coffee "with care and excellence" - so to speak. Looking forward to learning more and appreciate all of your help.

Thanks all,
