My slump has been both marked AND sustained.
Causes? I blame it on the heat, and a long list of lacks -- energy, health, money ... energy. One day I didn't have the energy to roast. And then I forgot to order green beans. And then money got tight so I bought a cheap brand of beans at the grocery store. Then one morning I didn't have the energy to grind - it really sux to feel sick all the time - so I ** gasp ** used my honey's pre-ground Folgers coffee.
Enough is enough. In an effort to rise up from the bottom of my coffee slump, I pulled out the coffee roaster and this is what I found:
Appalling, I know.
I don't think a simple wash will do it. I'm getting out the air compressor. It's got 125 psi pounds per square inch OOMPH.
Wish me luck!
