Im very glad to hear you had such a good time. Me too, and it was great to meet you and some other snobs.
Good to see some knowledge was passed around, thats what this is all about - helping others and learning from others. I didnt think you could resist the temptation of purchasing the heat gun after Rich gave you the low-down.
I think the aroma came from a recently roasted batch of Monsooned Malabar..... a rich and sweet aroma.
Now go and cook some beans Pistolero ;)
