Received in the mail last night, a quick clean-up on it and on
to finding the "right" grind for me. So far so good.

Thanks to whoever pointed me to it in the first place; this
was an ebay purchase. Final price around 70 bucks, plus
shipping.

Now I can use the Solis for the coffee maker only.


And what's the bean of choice for experimenting to find the
right grind? columbian, again, as suggested on the list.

yummy.

Yep, been roasting for awhile now with a hottop. also have a bravi as
backup,
thanks again for the heads up on that.

our staple bean is celebes/sulawesi, but have a good 30-40 lbs. of a
mix of things.

it's nice that sweetias is only 30 miles away, hold for pickup
ensures no
delay due to UPS.

one of my guiding philosophies is: take care of my wife and she'll take
care of
me. she loves to cook, so we're sinking 86k into a new kitchen. room
will be
20 x 16 when done, and we're expecting it to be done just before
thanksgiving.
on the island will be a raised portion, plumbed in, for the coffee
maker and
espresso machine. grinders on shelf below them. that's a lot of $$,
but
includes counters/cabinets, and a re-roof. counters are silestone,
cab's
ceiling to floor, and floor will be hardwood.

As kitchen is done, I'll try and post a pic in the binary group of the
coffee
related items in the center of the kitchen :))

Glad you saw my post. If some had their way no one would point out good
deals. I had no need for a grinder & not everyone is an eBay regular like
me.

For beans, it depends on whether you roast your own or not? If not I like
the Ruta Maya coffee carried by Costco. It's available online too:

ENJOY!
