    Corretto - corrected/correct roast??

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I was just thinking corretto means corrected/correct in Italian .
    So does it mean correct roaster , corrected roaster or something else?
    It`s just every time i read it *i automatically think corrected/correct.
    What am i missing? or am i over thinking it?
    As a coffee corretto means espresso corrected with cognac/grappa.
    Please explain ;)

    So if i read this right - a person with the handle/nickname tried something different in terms of home roasting with a bread maker/heat gun and the name stuck?
    Very interesting.
    makes sense
    thanks.

    I like to believe that there is more synergy to the name though.... 8-)

    Yes, illustrious member "Corretto" first came up with the concept and proved that it works wonderfully well and deserves full credit... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Also, going back to the Italian translation of Corretto, I think it is most appropriate to think of the BM being corrected from that of its original purpose of a mere bread-making machine, to one of a much higher standing namely, roasting fabulous coffee.

    Personally, I cant think of a better name that could be used.... 8-) 8-) 8-)
