    Read that roasting you own coffee beans was easy and better for you...if you love coffee, it is a pretty cool thing to do...

    I'd try this but I quit drinking coffee in late December 2012. Only slipped up 3 times so far.

    Yes I switched to Herbal Teas, I gave up sodas earlier last year as well, to kick caffeine. Peachy got me into Herbal Teas last Summer, I started off slow. But now I think I have maybe 14-15 different varieties on hand,

    I drink herbal teas throughout the day, I also drink them iced.

    Congrats on kicking soda, it's just sugar after all. If you're ever up in the Bay area check out David's Tea. The place is overwhelming and I think you can find any tea you ever imagined.

    I'm finding coffee is almost as complicated as wine....various regions produce certain types of flavors...I like South American beans better than Indonesia beans...and roasting is a very exact process....an extra 30 sec of roasting can make a big difference..it is interesting..
