2. I got a FreshRoast SR500 which is an air roaster

I really like it so far. I feel like I need to get a spreadsheet going to keep track of what I liked and what I didn't.

I have always disliked Starbucks for their over roasting and getting rid of any nuance. I do think it is nice to be able to get a somewhat dark roast and still keep the regional tones of the beans. My family got me about 5 pounds of beans with the roaster and all are Central American. I have about a pound left. Personally I like the African beans, so I will start with those when this gift supply is done.

I think it's awesome to just watch the roasting process.

I have been using a metal insert for our Keurig to brew coffee at home and now I think I'm going to get a French Press just so I don't lose the flavors I'm trying to roast.
