Last summer Molly met a couple on their steel trawler Seaducktress who roasted their own coffee on-board. They told Molly that after roasting, the beans need to rest for a couple of days for the best flavor. Patience has never been one of my strong points, so once the beans had cooled I ground them and brewed the first pot of my home roasted beans. The reviews were not as good as I had hoped but like Molly said "It's better than Folgers".
It is fun to have a hobby again and I'm looking forward to honing my roasting skills in hopes of one day being in Latin America where my favorite beans are grown.
Note to self: Don't try to do two things at once or the bacon will get burned!
