I've just started roasting at home. It is freakin' awesome. Bought a Fresh Roast 8. It's easy to use. I've only lurked for a day or two, so much to learn about roasting. My aunt gets me beans (works for a major roaster) which are given to her as samples. I reap the rewards of fresh brewed coffee. It's way better than the coffee I was drinking. Looking forward to reading and learning.
