    Cool DIY coffee roaster (Ikea Colander as drum)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Thank you for the add. I started to learn about coffee roasting 3 years ago, and has been crazy about it. I DIY built a drum roaster myself in my own garage using parts purchased from Ikea and hardware store. The main drum used is Ikea ORDNING Colander and other body is Ikea SOCKER Bucket.
    Here is a recent video of it in action. Apologise for the poor video quality, first time trying to make a youtube video:

    Merry Christmas to all by the way

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    That is an amazing setup you have there. Looks like it responds nicely to input temperature changes.
    Are you planning to use Artisan to control the gas flow and air flow?

    It does huh? I was surprise too when I first test ride it and it is being so responsive.
    I know Artisan have that feature but not really, this design is rather on the cheap and cheerful setup, but I am planning another build which is more controllable than this one.
