Hello from Virginia. Member at homebarista forum, homeroaster forum and used to be a CoffeeGeek member until they axed the forum section.

I roast on a home made, process controller run, fluid bed roaster for the last 5 years, about a pound of coffee every three weeks (I'm the only coffee drinker in the home--wife and kids dont).

I've got an old Saeco for espresso when the mood hits me, but mostly pour-over by the 300ml cup. Current grinder is a Breville dose control pro (conical)...does well with pour over...too many fines for espresso, Medium roast to City++.

Waiting on a HiBrew G5 single dose grinder (Kickstart campaign grinder)...good value as coffee is not really a hobby, just a necessity...I don't have $800 to $1500 for the grinder I "want!"
