We shampoo'd our carpets yesterday, ended up exhausted (horrible job) and didn't get to roast as planned. On Saturday evening I finally put together a new bean cooler. Bunnings 200mm HPM fan, 11l bucket, and a sieve from across the road at Victoria's Basement. My aunt had a bone saw (aka. jigsaw) and drill, so i was able to cut some exhaust holes in the bucket. Will roast tonight, am looking forward to some super fast cooling, the airflow is impressive , should hopefully speed up my workflow.
Have finished the last roast of Zimbabwe Chimanimani within 7 days of roasting. Will aim to roast enough to last 3 weeks this time and, then roast again in 10 days to try and keep a stock of beans.
Mal, you have me wondering if i should buy some of the Elephant hills. I've made myself a promise not to purchase more beans until i get through the multitude of bags i have at home. My resolve is often tested.
