New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Fresh Roasted Coffee

    Open offer, but I have a small commercial roaster and do some roasting for a few small clients (and myself, of course). If anyone would ever be interested in giving some a try, I would be more than happy to trade or even just send off a small sample for you Just drop a note... ssiegel@amesic.com

    Oh, and I doubt I can get great pecans like Dave has, but I also have access to all types of nuts, popcorn, candies, etc

    Hi Sammy,

    Where are you located? I'm in California -- and have sent you an email. Coffee for Caputo pizza flour; a match made in heaven.

        I am out of town at a conference with REALLY bad internet access. I will be back on Thurs (1/17) and will try to catch up and get back to you guys on this. I am in, though.

        Acoma, if you want some coffee, feel free to drop me an email at ssiegel@amesic.com

        Sorry about the bad communication until after Thurs

                Re: Fresh Roasted Coffee

                Thanks for the emails guys. I am back in town so I will reply to your emails individually, as I get them. I typically like to send beans because grounds don't stay fresh nearly as well, but if you don't have a grinder, and you just want a sample of what I have around, I would be more than happy to get you something.

                So, things to think about when you send me an email...(ps, if you are interested, please send me an email at ssiegel@amesic.com).

                * What type of coffee do you drink? Espresso? Drip? Other?
                * Espresso is pretty straight forward, but if you want something for regular drip brewing, what type of coffee do you like? I have typically do single variety roasts, but I also have one or two great blends. I have some mild roasts, such as beans from Brazil or Guatemala and I have more *interesting* roasts, such as beans from Sumatra, India, or Sulawesi. Of course, I have a bunch of things in between. I can get you more specifics, but the mild roasts tend to be coffees everyone enjoys. The others have stronger personalities, but are great if you get used to them (or if you are already used to them). I don't overroast my beans, so both will probably be a little lighter than what you are used to seeing, but *in general*, the mild roasts, like the Brazils, are roasted lighter than the wackier roasts, like the Sumatras.
                * Do you have a grinder?
                * How much do you want? I am happy to send samples if you want some.

                Thanks!

                Oh, and James, I will roast yours right away and will get them out this weekend. If you like it, send the flour. If you don't care for it, just chuck it (or give it away or use it or whatever) and don't worry about sending the flour.

                  Re: Fresh Roasted Coffee

                  My coffee arrived, and I am very happy to report that it is excellent. I have tried various imported coffees (usually stale) and domestic, and Sammy roasts the best coffee we have had since we moved back to CA!

                  If you looking for a good Barter deal, I can recommend this very highly. Now, I have to figure out how to secure a consistent supply. :-)

                  Thanks Sammy,

                    Jame, I agree. The coffee is very good indeed. I have been very impressed with Sammy's coffee and professionalism throughout.
