    Here's one for the WTF column!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just had a potential customer ask me if I could sell him some pre-ground raw green coffee as he would like to roast his own but did not happen to own a grinder.

    WTF x 10!!!

    I tried VERY hard to keep the look of shock and horror off of my face as I tried to explain the facts of life to him... not so sure I managed to pull it off though.

    He clearly wanted to roast some instant coffee.

    Oh man, that's awesome... Though now I'm intrigued... If you could roast it without blowing it all over the room, would it taste any worse than regular preground?

    Classic!
    A gentle roast in the FZR baby roaster should be OK - but where to get the 5 micron mesh screen for the cooler !!!

    You'd need a really slow temp ramp, but I wanna see someone try it on a popper with a massively tall chimney...
