  • coffee roasting set up

    Hi,

    I tried few different ways of roasting and finally decide on this ghetto set up..

    the basics,

    the greens are from http://www.gilliescoffee.com/wholesale/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=49&zenid=05d7c240a 8791db7c10bd078ba271c2e they are here in Brooklyn, HUGE selection of greens, highly recommended.

    the roaster is a nut roaster that I modified... not pretty, but works great for me..

    I set the fire between 3 and 4 in my stove to make the whole roast last 18-20minutes.
    First crack about 10-12minutes, second crack usually is the last 3minutes.

    very important, the cooling down..
    I use a little "garbage" bucket, a metal strainer which I keep in the freezer, wooden spoon and vacuum "dryer".

    it bring the second crack to 0 (zero) in under a minute.

    Hi Juanjo

    What happens with the chaff?
    Do you blow it away and is there a risk of it catching fire on the stove?

      Hi Mal,

      very little chaff when roasting, no risk of fire..

        It certainly is hands on

        Not only are you getting good fresh roasted coffee beans
        You are probably getting a 6 pack while you "work it" [smiley=vrolijk_26.gif]

          Hi Jaunjo thats a very tradtional looking roaster.I would expect this would not be much different to the way Ethiopians have been roasting coffee in there homes from day one.
