Good Day, All. Mister Moo here - hide your children. I'm a semi-veteran piper, 57, from the Raleigh, NC, vicinity and am always looking to expand my knowledge of the craft. Got grown kids, a stellar wife, two idiot cats and one smart one and I love big fast motorcycles, long trips, pipes, stogies and sailboats. And food. And coffee. Especially coffee. (I roast coffee for a hobby. So should you.) You can smoke a pipe or a cigar AND roast coffee at the same time, so why not?

Hope to meet some nice folks here. Thanks for letting me drop in.

Come by. Have a cup.

Is it time to return to the fold? What was your methodology back then, Jim? Are you still staying caffeinated?

Thanks all for the kind welcome. Nice to see all the brother Carolinians here. (Go 'Canes.)

Hi and welcome Mister Moo!

Funny you should mention coffee. I haven't had a drop of the delicious drink since I came down with a cold over two weeks ago. My husband says with my somewhat nervous temperament, I don't need the caffeine. I haven't craved any, not even decaf. Strange, as I love black coffee.

Regards, Lisa Marie

I am the same way about a coffee, pipes and cigars. If I have a hint of a cold I totally lose interest in them all. No smell, no glory?

Oh well, if you ever go back to coffee we need to talk about home roasting. Once you have fresh roasted you won't go back. Where's the coffee forum around here, btw? Smile

I'm sure I'll go back eventually. All it takes is to bake a pan of cinnamon rolls or pie, which we occasionally have for breakfast.

Yep, Captain Pete from another forum was giving us hints on coffee roasting and places to get supplies (something Marias, I think?). He suggested a cheap roaster would be a 70's model popcorn popper with the high wattage, but to do it outside using a cardboard box to do it in-I think that is what he said. He said lots of smell is emitted during the roasting. That is about all I could afford at the moment. Lately, Kroger has been selling a local line of coffee, Rozark Hills out of Rose Bud. Their Roastmasters blend is pretty tasty, especially for a ready-ground coffee.

Maybe there is a food section here we can start to discuss the pleasures of the bean, and maybe even the tea leaf.

You're making me want a cuppa. Laughing

I just found this thread Mr. Moo. Welcome here too Mr. Moo and light up a pipe and pick up a cup of your favorite self-roasted and pressed coffee! This is a great forum. So enjoy.

There are a few people on here that have mentioned home roasting before. Something I surely would like to get into. How did you get started? Any tips? We can always start another thread specifically for this as well, or even a coffee/tea section of the site. *hint hint, wink wink...forceful nudge*

Never home roasted before but the office I work at is next door to a local coffee shop who roasts their own once a week. At first i thought "what the heck is burning" but have come to appreciate the flavorful aroma waifting through the block. We have worn a path through the back yard to said coffee shop.
