When I say coffee addict.. I mean it
2 double espressos, one in the morning and one at night, and black teas during the day:
Coffee addict on 2 coffees a day?
Not sure what that makes a lot of the rest of us.
Nice to see that you are a roasting addict though.
Variations in the ambient temperature seem to be a real problem for roasting machines (some more than others). I stopped using roasting machines when my last one stopped working. I was running out of roasted beans and was faced with buying some from the supermarket or going without until I could get a new machine (and which one should I get?) or until I could get to the (very good) local roaster. With my back to the wall, I went for it and tried roasting in a pan. And I've not looked backwards since. Cheap (like nothing at all to buy). Unaffected by ambient temperature. Easy and quick to clean. And, though there is obviously more smell in the kitchen to start with, it goes much quicker; I've never been able to work that one out (I know your solution does this better, but it must have been more work than opening a window or two, and wouldn't work with my current technology). And ultimately, probably a better taste quality - and I've still got a lot of improvements to come in my eyes, ears and timings.
PS - No 'energy' drinks ever. Nor fizzy drinks with sugar or sweeteners.
Just coffee, tea (green, black, herbal), water, fruit juice. Very fussy about coffee (won't bother if it's not close enough to what I like); strong preferences in water (given the option). And a glass of wine sometimes.
