        I have built a rotating Stainless colander using a electric can opener to power it. Im using a heat gun on a stand to roast them. I also mounted an exaust fan in a bucket for cooling the beans. I hope this thing works.
        I bought 2.5kgs of Rwanda Nyungwe. Would this be good for lattes?

          Didn't want to go down the track of a corretto?

            That a heat gun in a bread maker right? I want to be able to roast in a higher quantity. Correttos only do 200-300 gms?

              Try 700g for a corretto. Others have gone much higher. My normal roast in a corretto is 600g

                Sounds interesting. Does the colander rotate? Or does the can opener power a mixing arm in the colander?
                I personally use a corretto -350g per batch, but can handle much more. 350g is a perfect amount for 1 weeks use in our house - keeps us in the 7-10 day sweet spot :-)

                Will wait with bated breath for the photo!

                      The weekly roast quantity in my single loaf Coretto is 725 grams of green, roasts evenly, consistently and the results are repeatable.

                          Interesting setup, I could be wrong but my feeling is that heat loss is going to be a real problem, let's know how you get on.
