The irony is that I'm sure you Harley riding guys would consider me to be a "Yuppie".
Where I live I find that most brewers are a bit "techie" and even those that are not:::: like techie stuff...

We have lawyers, accountants, government workers, a few scientists and a bunch of IT types....

...as far as I know I am one of the few "riders" in the club and I ride a Suzuki Bandit...

Don't forget teachers. At my school we have a brew group. As Far as I know, I'm the only one on HBT, though I've suggested it several times. Obviously outside of school...

We are homeroasters too. Been doing it for about 7 years now.
We're hooked on Java estate.

That's pretty yuppie but I still think I've got you beat. On top of my profession, I own a Winnebago...a frigging Winnebago...and I'm only 40 years old.

Good stuff, we had Java Preanger recently. If you ever can get Bali, Flores or Sulawesi, go for it, I think if you like Java you'd like those. My favorites are Ethiopian, especially Harrar. Oh and then there's Guatemala, LOVE the Guat

We tried roasting Ethiopian every way we could and everytime it was terrible. Mrs. Bob even tried it at Starbucks and she couldn't stand it.

The worst coffee we've ever had, worse than Folgers!
