    Second Corretto roast.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Roasted 500 grams of Brazil original Bourbon this evening, the second roast in my Corretto.
    My first I over cooked, 12 mins @ 500 C Bosch heat gun fan on 3 way too dark.
    This one I reduced the heat to 450 C heat gun fan on 2, first crack around 12 mins and stopped it @ 16 mins.
    Set up a cooler using a gem sieve and 20 litre bucket with vacuum cleaner nozzle plugged into the bottom of the bucket, worked well, cooled the beans quite rapidly.
    Have ordered a temp data logger, everything very makeshift at the moment, once things are looking a little more respectable will post some pics of the setup.
    Will now attempt to attach pics showing roast colour and uniformity, gem sieve and bucket, vacuum not attached. ::)




    Well, that worked. :)

    I thought I was looking at some of my old photos
    You have the very same Gold Pan for a cooling sieve on a 20 lt bucket
    And on almost identical slate tiles

    I have added an insert on my cooler

    Ohh great roast by the way :D

    KK

    Aint that a hoot, great minds eh? Was in an op shop today and they had the buckets there for $3, thought they looked the business.
    Looks like the exhaust fan fits into the bucket pretty snug, the vacuum did the job but I reckon a fan would be neater and move more air.
    I was pretty pleased with the roast myself. :)
