    Great stuff Pb. Nice roaster and an excellent looking result.
    What were the batch sizes and times for your roasts?

        It's a great machine. I've had mine a little over 1 year now. Here's my set up. Click image for larger version

          I put a 1kg green batch of Peru Ceja de Selva in first go. I backed off the heat too early and too much and ran to 20 mins.
          The 2nd batch was 1kg green Columbian roasted to about 10 secs past beginning of 2nd crack at 16 mins.

              I dropped at 190C.
              What are your tips Saoye? I've only just begun so what I'm doing isn't very useful to anyone yet.
              Especially tips for going up to around 1.25 green so as to yield full kilo brown batches.

                1.25kg don't be afraid to charge up to 240deg especially for hard beans. Your roaster will take a few more roasts to season I'd say after 10 roasts your roaster will be fully seasoned so until then nothing is really as it seems in terms of profiling.
                Never just turn the machine off without allowing it to cool down under 100 deg or you will warp the barrel. I use the pid reading for my charge temp not bean temp. Hope that helps.

                  Sigh I had one of these sitting in sydney waiting to be picked up after a long wait from order day.........but had to let it be I sold as we have had to move to a rental property due to unforeseen circumstances....... I was really looking forward to using mine. Good luck pavoniboy subscribed to watch and learn as you go

                      Sorry for your disappointment LukeMC.

                      I'm beginning to get the hang of the roaster and how it responds. Roasts are already improving. Getting good results in the cup already too. Today's roasts smelt amazing, the best yet.

                      I'm overcoming my fear of backing off too much too early that happened in the very first roast. With good momentum I can still back off a lot, quite a bit before 1st crack.

                      I've been too involved with learning, to be taking photos but will try to remember next weekend.

                        Thanks for the help Saoye. It's good to know about cooling the drum. I had been anyway as felt it would be good but didn't know how cool I needed to get it. I had been coming down to 60 to be safe.
                        I still haven't increased my batch sizes but am really starting to nail the profile I'm after on the 1kg green batches.

                          I typically leave the door open, turn off the elements and leave the drum rolling with the air on full blast to suck the heat out. By the time I weigh, label my roasts, clean up etc, is about 30 minutes it's reasonably cool. I didn't go past 800g until I had at least 20 roasts on this machine. There is really not a lot left in contingency once you roast at 1.25kg in terms of controllability/power. Then again most 1kg roasters are really meant to roast 800g or 1kg green at maximum. I have seen 1 other tj067 locally and found some differences including the depth of the drum. I'm not sure if the buyer had requested smaller drum size to reduce the price etc, but would be interested to know the diam and depth of your drum compared to mine. My drum has ample room, at 1.25kg it's probably 1/4 or even less of the volume of the drum. The only problem for me to go past the 1.25 kg is really the power output and controllability of the roast.

                            Just out of curiosity Saoye , what is your minimum recommended green bean batch the TJ067 can handle comfortably?

                              comfortably 400g but that's only because I haven't tried anything less. I've heard others quoted numbers around 250g.
