Wow. Mine consists of a $35 heat gun from Home Depot, two stainless steel bowls, and a wooden spoon.

Holy crow - laptops & sensors & heatfins - oh my!

I've been buying from redbirdcoffee.com - they only roast it when you order it - so that's fresh enough for me. And their espresso blend is the best I've tasted yet.

I order 5lbs at a time, which lasts about 2-3 weeks, and it works out to about 10.50/lb including shipping.
