Two one pound roast this morn, both medium dark - Ethiopian Yirg and other Guatemalan Antigua. Going thru about one pound weekly, mostly drip brewed. Mid 40's F this morning so made it thru both roast without having cool down time with air popper over heating.

Two of my absolute FAVORITE coffees! I love other coffees but these two are my foundation!

As mentioned in my post #15, I have a small Braun blade grinder, a Mr. Coffee and Capresso conical burr grinders. The Mr. Coffee timer doesn't work, making it a PITA to use as continually have to hit run button. I bought the Capresso unit in Dec. 2008 and it has seen a lot of beans and still going strong and absolutely no complaints. I do fill the bean holder to capacity and since I drink at least a 10-12 cup pot every morning, the beans don't have time to go stale. Roasted coffee is stored in airtight containers and transferred to grinder as needed.
I wanted to get a grinder to do small batch blends of the various beans I'm roasting. That's when I found out when I had bought the Capresso unit in 2008, which was a surprise how time slips away. I thought about buying another same model Capresso, but since this was for occasional use went with a cheaper brand (Boly flat burr grinder). It was problematic right out of the box and was inoperable after just four uses. It went back to Amazon. Then ordered an OXO conical burr and so far impressed. I will be more so, should it last as long as the Capresso (still good to go). The OXO has a metal grounds receiver which seems to limit the static cling as it fully empties when poring into drip filter.
Still using my hand operated grinders for my French press as both set at coarse. Should give the OXO a go to see if it will coarse grind as it says it will. I've never tried adjusting the Capresso grind and now that I realize it's age, probably won't try doing any adjustments for fear of screwing it up. LOL

Cheers and holiday greetings to all. Looks like SATX may get back into winter weather next week and end this spring like stuff going on now.
