it has been a long time between posts on here.....
Ok......firstly a big thanks goes out Den at cuppacoffee,
for sourcing the Baby Roaster so quickly.
Every transaction with you has been so easy, you are a true gentleman and a pleasure to deal with.
On to my technical question....
I have run one roast of "Harrar", all went well.....about 11 mins to second crack, but with a fair bit of tipping..... If I am more cautious with the heat, I am sure the roast will be spot on.
What I did notice was the copper drum seems to have expanded and the handle/drum "plug" seems to be inside the drum further. This has caused a bit of a gap between the drum & "plug". The gap is big enough for beans to exit the drum, or get jammed during roast, preventing the "plug/handle" from being removed easily to check the roast.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Oh, and its great knowing someone here will likely have an answer......
I have experienced the beans getting caught, but that is usually only when I do a Yemen roast (small bean) I think I will start a thread based on the Baby Roaster techniques with hopes of everyone that uses one adding there own tips and tricks
Edited to add: or maybe Ill just post in the one already there hehe
