Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

From Oregon
Took a trip about 17 years ago to LA and was in desperate need of espresso fix. Figuring there were kiosks everywhere in LA I asked my father-in-law where I could get espresso nearby. He said that there was a place called Starbucks about 5 miles away! In Eugene and all over WA and OR there was an espresso stand or shop on almost every street corner!

Got my first espresso machine 16 years ago. Used daily with roasted beans from local roaster (Equator). Running out of beans was always a problem for me as the roaster was a good distance away. Although the local stores had specialty coffee in large varieties and quantities none of it was dated or the date was "best by" and a date of 6 months, sometimes! I saw a friend pan roast around this time and the results were tipped, burned and undrinkable and he was getting ready to open a espresso truck!

Reluctantly, I tried a popcorn popper about 6 months ago and was amazed how easy it can be. Roast almost every day. Now have 2 poppers and going to do a BM (lol Bread machine for initiates) and possibly toying with a fluid bed. I will be roasting for life. My coffee is now no more than 3 days old.
Hello from the Portland West Hills! I bought a FreshRoast SR500 and it came with 5lbs of free green coffee. I buy my green beans from places shown on this forum and they have been great. Several places in Portland have these, along with roasters, but I liked sending for them.

Anyway, Welcome from Cedar Mill!

Hey MPSAN I was checking out craigslist and some guy in the Portland area is closing his espresso shop and has a year old Mazzer Super Jolly for $400. Actually has two. A smoking deal! I was very tempted. Kind of buried in the ads. Send a PM and I'll give you a link if you or a friend up there are interested.

I'm with you on ordering beans. I like the idea of a prize in my mailbox! Thanks for the greeting!
Well, I am fine with what I have for now. Not sure where you are, but I, too, like getting the beans in the mail. Fast, too, and I have been using his descriptions. I believe they are complete as he roasts for his coffee shops and commercial customers so he knows these green beans and has very good advice on EVERY bean he sells!
