New from Portland, Oregon

I am from the Portland area, living outside of Vancouver, Washington in Camas.

Have been a lover of coffee for a very long time, and was given two pounds of green coffee beans for Christmas. That is what started my love, perhaps obsession

I started with a Presto Lite popper that many places said not to use because of the underneath blower. This worked perfectly for me, using a hack of adding a glass chimney from an oil lamb.

I ordered an air popper, Nostaglic, from Sweet Maria’s, and enjoyed their sample of coffee they sent. The Nostalic worked great as well.

Stopping by Big Lots, I picked up the popcorn popper they sell there. The Bella. This reminded me in looks like the Westend Poppery 2 that so many people race about. This popper was/is great.

And then there was today. The 1600 plus came today, and I did my first 1/4 lb batch and it looks so good.

Learning from the beginning about first and second crack. City, Full City, Full City+ roasts. Letting coffee rest, etc.

This is so much fun.

Coffee and Grace,

Welcome! I'm new here too. The obsession thing... I understand that!
Welcome, I just upgraded my 1600 to a new Hottop that I just received yesterday, l will warn you keep your wallet close by :) but it keeps me out of the bars so I guess that's a plus.

Two guys living next door to each other both drove 67 Camaros and one of them traded their Camaro in for a new Cadillac. He mentioned to his neighbor that he had upgraded to the Cadillac. The neighbor with the Camaro commented that he preferred his Camaro over a Cadillac but was happy for his neighbor being able to trade up to the Cadillac.

I am loving this obsession!

It keeps me out of the bars as well. Learning more every day!

Glad to have you here
