Thank You, that is so nice of you, I just truly miss the comradery in here so I hope it isn't to superficial just dropping in.
Just think of me as the little old lady sitting by the fire, snoozing and knitting. Listening to it all when she is "awake" but missing the larger picture. She still loves and cares for you all.

Coffee is good! Ill have to do a picture show about how I do mine sometime. I buy green unroasted beans from Sweet Marias in Oakland Ca. They go around the world to small farms and sellect the best. Green beans do not go rancid. I usually have between 20-30 Lbs of green beans from all over the world on hand for personal medicinal use. I usually roast every 2 weeks in a vintage westbend popcorn popper. It puts out alot of smoke and has to be done outside. I grind the beans just befor brewing, and put them in a Chemex hand blown coffee beaker. I use water that has been filtered through a Big Berkey 4 filter gravity flow system, and heat it to 208Fin a zojirushi stainless boiler that is plugged into a battery bank and invertor system powered by my solar panels. I just splash the grounds with hot water first and allow them to rest and swell for a couple minutes. After the brewing is complete, i serve it in prewarmed mugs, with raw hawaiian sugar and organic 1/2 & 1/2. Its really good!
