    iRoast2 - Roasting Indoors!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    After getting a complaint, I went to bunnings and bought some of that stretchy aluminium tubing and a roll of those blue wipes.

    My goal was to absorb enough of the smoke so that roasting indoors wouldnt set off the fire alarm (mine is so badly designed. replacing the battery is such a mission) and my place woudnt smell of coffee.

    It works pretty well! There is still the smell of coffee for a couple minutes after roasting, but the smokey/oily smell is not there. I also wet the blue stuff before roasting just incase. I dont want it to burn.

    Heh! neat solution. To really make it smell free you could run that device out the window. Weirdly - I have the (rather older) "precision" roaster, and my wife _likes_ it when I roast. Never set the smoke alarm off - but that is probably because the previous owner was a firey andI think used a heat detecting alarm in the kitchen instead. The smell does linger in my upstairs office for about 4 hours afterwards (it is above the kitchen), but doesnt trouble the alarm up there.

    But I was getting complaints about the smell.

    Incidentally, my little chimney seems to amplify the sound of first crack.
