here are some home coffee roasting links: - where i started buying coffee from and might buy some robusta beans - i want to build the bbq roaster... - good info - check hear before buying any coffee equipment! interesting espresso stories.. - coffee science information center

and this is where i got my coffee:

i bought a rancilio sylvia on ebay. my dad bought an automatic Solis Master 5000 from these guys:

i was really impressed with the automatic saeco machines. i came real close to buying one but i liked the stainless steel boiler of the rancilio better. it's more like a commercial machine.
