    Home Roasting- WA Coffee Academy Sat 18th Mar

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    On Saturday between 2 and 5pm, we will run our first home roasting/cupping session at the Coffee Academy. We plan to use poppers, the Alp and a Hottop. Info at http://coffee.angliss.vic.edu.au/coffeemaking.htm#8.

    Jill Adams will run a cupping session and participants will have lots of samples to take home and drink.

    Im keen for a couple of CS members who use other methods of roasting to come along, demonstrate how you roast, enjoy a freebie session, including the cupping with Jill and help us get a few more CS converts....

    PM or email me chris@talkcoffee.com.au if youd like to join us....for what should be a fun afternoon! First in, best dressed *;)

    Chris

    I can bring the "incinerator" with me if you want something a little left-field?

    Im attending the course myself tommorow and would really like to see a HG roaster in action, just so I can get an idea of whats involved should I find the need to up-scale my batches from the current popper operation, down the track.

    Hope someone is able to take up the offer and show us newbies how its done :-)

    Maybe a CS heatgun roaster will turn-up on the day?

    It seems that most CSrs have moved from popper to drum of some sort and the heatgun/dog bowl is a little out of favour. Its still a good method of roasting for some CSrs though.

    Thanks to Jill and Chris and Andy for putting on a great arvo of coffee education.

    Esp enjoyed playing with the Alp and Hottop roasters, and seeing Andys gas powered beasty in action. http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1090196434

    And Ive since totally ripped off his fan powered bean-bucket for cooling the beans after roasting. Hope thats OK :-)

    Included in the course was a "starter pack" of beans which I shall put to good use. One slight "problem" that Im hoping someone can help with.

    The writing on the bags which identifies the bean type has virtually rubbed off completely. I can tell one lot is from Peru and thats about it.

    Anyone have any idea what beans were in that pack and how I might indentify the other three types.

    No real biggie. If I cant pin it down, Ill just roast them and taste them and use them as "mystery" beans in a blend somewhere.

    Or maybe its a final exam for the cupping part of the afternoon. Try to identify the beans by cupping them blind :-)
