On the trail :: the first batch

Eight of us headed into the headwaters of the Yuba's North Fork, with the coffee roasting gear from Sweet Maria's. The first batch was better to look at than drink, although it improved significantly after 24 hours. Not ready to compete with Peet's yet, but if I crank up the volume, all the majors are in trouble. For better or worse, I don't have a record of which beans were used for the first batch. Later for that.
Above all, this was entertaining and the beauty of the freshly roasted, but not burned, beans impressed everyone.
