    I am more a fan of city+, but whatever makes your blood pressure rise brother!

    BTW, a typical misconception: dark roasts actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts. The roasting process lessens the amount of caffeine in the bean by burning it off. Try it and see what I mean!

    Congrats Randy, thats a good lil unit. Ive had mine about 3 years now and it still treats me right.

    I'm with Jason though, they are a lil dark for me. If there's oil forming on them, they cooked too long (yes Starbucks, I'm talking to you).

    FWIW, here's my routine and a few tips I've found helpful:
    Im not very adventurous with things, I load 13.5 oz of beans and hit the 1lb button on profile A.
    I usually wait for the last pop of first crack, count to 15, and hit cool. (this generally is between 16-18min depending on bean and ambient temp)
    Sometimes, 2nd crack starts on me before, in which case I hit cool ASAP and open the door (if I'm outside).
    If its very cold, run it for 30 sec to preheat the chamber before loading the beans.

    I give a 2 day rest for drip, 5 for espresso.

    Mostly, just keep having fun.
    Feel free to shoot me a PM if any questions come up and I can try to help out.

    Some new additions



    The top item is a Dexter Kitchen Fork with some age. Next one down is an interesting chinese veggie cleaver, again with some age (it took a great edge, scary). Case XX Forge Carbon Steel 8 in. Chef Knife, never used, took a great edge. After that, a Suisin Suji from JKI, Jon and Sara are the best to deal with. Great products.

    First three off the bay around the same time. Suji is from JKI.

    Love that Case XX. Come nice scores. I used to have a Case 10", and it took a scary sharp edge, a kept it. You'll be happy.

    I think this fits here, so here goes

    Finally got myself a decent knife case. Cut the palm of my hand when a knife went through my old Global roll so I said enough's enough. Over here in Blighty the choices for cases are very small, but so far I'm super impressed with this one. It was actually the cheapest of all those I was looking at and the build quality and everything is awesome

    Yeah here. There's actually another section like that I am not using so it holds twice as much as you can see. I'm super impressed with it. The build quality is very nice, there's velcro straps to hold everything down, it's nicely padded and there's 2 clippy straps that go over the outside of everything to keep it secure. Haven't seen any reviews or anything of them but I like it so far
