I'm a professional coffee roaster and I approve this message.
I wouldn't expect anything less from a professional coffee roaster from San Francisco. By all means, the Bay Area has a justified claim to be one of top cities / areas in the US for gourmands and foodies.

But what I really want to know (and perhaps others do as well) is about your screen name. Is that '3 eggs' as in over-easy on a plate? In which case it certainly fits in with the general breakfast theme. Or is it the more colloquial Spanish definition of huevos?

I buy the 10 ounce bricks of Spanish coffee. Bustello. Caribe. El Pico. They're all kinda horrible but I'm like a junkie and go for the most bang for my buck. Whatever brand you use, look for a fine grind for a paper filter (Oh God! Not another filter thread!) not a coarse grind for a percolator and make it strong. By the way, has your coffee maker broken yet?

I also apologize for not reading ALL 8 pages of posts about coffee before responding. Some of this may already have been said before...

Coffee maker is banging along no worries. Timer works like magic,...30 minutes before I wake up it done it's duty for the day.

But hey,...for $15 bucks, if it goes a year everyday,..I will be happy.

Man. One of those questions, that asking it, means there's no answer for you.

My $160 machine must be better. It has my coffee ready about one minute before I get up. No scorched coffee out of mine!

I have found I can't use pre-ground espresso in my regular coffee maker. The grind is so fine that it clogs the filter and overflows the basket all over the kitchen counter. I do have a Braun espresso machine which makes nice espresso and has a milk frother attached. I don't use it very often, though.

Seriously, it would be nice if I had a local roaster - may try to find one. I gotta admit though, the popcorn popper roasting method looks pretty cool and easy. May be worth a try if I can find a thrift store popper like the one shown on the video.
And if I was a professional mechanic, I wouldn't advocate the DIY approach either. I'd be kissing money goodbye. Gotta get paid, Man.
I can hadle simple the maintenance on my bike, easy as making a cup of coffee. Anything requiring more mechanical aptitude, and it's off to the shop. That's more like roasting a fine Ethiopia Yirgacheffe.
