Nice and compact.
I just thought I would share my bean cooler I made out of a Piccadilly water dispenser. I purchased it from a Foodland store here in South Australia for $15. I got my hands on an old 10lt plastic water bottle, cut the top off and then acquired a piece of SS, cut it to size and drilled lots of holes. I used an attachment that came with my vacuum cleaner that I dont use and attached that to the bottom of the container. I now can dump my beans straight into the cooling try with the vacuum on and my beans are at room temp in less that 2 mins. The piece of wire is there so once the beans are cooled I place a container at the bottom, lift the SS out and the beans fall into the container so I can weigh them for post roast % weight loss.
Nice and compact.
Great work, looks the part too!, and cost next to nothing!, isnt it funny when you look at everyday items around the house and wonder if you could somehow improve your coffee with them! I had a laugh
We have moved from the vacuum cleaner to the popular exhaust fan built into the bucket idea, as our vacuum cleaner started to smell like coffee :D
Isnt that preferable to smelling like dirt?Originally Posted by 4048505A47230 link=1246711990/3#3 date=1246925586

Cant argue TG ;)
Many years ago I was given a demo of a Kirby vacuum cleaner (read "expensive").
They filter through water instead of the usual bag setup.
One trick they used was to add a few drops of something like lavender or whatever takes your fancy and you end up "fragrancing" the house as you clean.
TG - Must be the more expensive Kirby one to the unit i have, our unit still has a bag but each bag has layered filtering within it.
From memory it cost us $2.5k and that was about 14 years ago and its still going strong as ever.
I have a different vac for cooling the beans and it is exclusively for that and cleaning up the garage when the chaff starts to take over.
