    I'm Janne. The name gets me free feminine hygiene samples in the mail now and then, but those that have seen my picture will attest to that I'm one ugly broad.

    Started roasting some 7 months ago, first two batches using an iron skillet and a wood spoon to stir. Those beans actually turned out OK, although very uneven.
    Currently using a stovetop popper (as seen in in my recent thread "couple of pics of my redneck roastery). I roast about 3 pounds a week.
    The most common beans for me are Columbian Supremo and Costa Rica Tarrazu.
    I don't see my roasting evolving much further in the near future... maybe the addition of some sort of low tech cooling rig before the summer heat arrives.
    As for why I started roasting... can't remember. I've liked coffee since I was old enough to hold a cup.

    I have gone through using normal drip coffee makers, worn out a few perculators, French press, a mokapot... and now finally went completely low-tech and simply brew coffee manually by pouring water over ground in a filter basket. The mokapot gets used now and then.
    (In the mornings its three small filter baskets brewing straight into three travel mugs, two for me, one for the wife)

    I use a simple Krups blade grinder. Bought a Cuisinart burr grinder but haven't been very happy with it.

    Hi, I'm Andy.

    My vast amount of roasting experience comes to about 10 minutes, now.

    Using an iRoast-2, Cousin Art burr mill (I see now that these aren't getting too many of these, but I'll try it and see what I think), Mr. Coffee, soon to be upgraded with the freebie from Gevalia.

    Let me put it this way; earlier this year the silicon seal between the base and the glass chimney disintegrated from use. I found some "red goop" (high temp silicon gasket maker) and was able to repair it.

    Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!, just drinking the first experiment.
    Stopped by the roaster about 10 miles away and picked up some Ethiopian Biloya and the Sumatran green.
    I roasted the Sumatran just into the second crack and cooled it, the wife and I decided to try it right away.

    It will do.

    Welcome to the fraternity; I hope you find home roasting to be the very enjoyable hobby that many of us have discovered. Lots of resources here to help you along.

    A rich Sumatra, by the way, is one of the great mates for a cigar. Any cigar.

    I am gonna add fortune telling to my list of talents...

    Name: Evan (as you can see I am also very creative when it comes to making up screen names)

    Level of experience: the holy as-yet unborn. I likely will start roasting, therefore I probably will be

    Roaster: eyeballing iRoast2

    Grinder: Cuisinart Burr

    Drip Brewer: Cuisinart Brew Central

    Other Brewers: Bodum French Press (hey, I've done 10 cups now so it counts, right?)

    Direction: After much reading I'd likely see myself leaning towards perkier beans with lighter roasts and exploring flavor nuances. Maybe espresso will catch me after I start doing it all myself but so far, after 30 years of drinking coffees, I can say that very few retail espressos have piqued my interest to this point.

    Attitude: Generally piss-poor...so I really look forward to fitting in here
