    coffee roasting set up

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    I tried few different ways of roasting and finally decide on this ghetto set up..

    the basics,

    the greens are from http://www.gilliescoffee.com/wholesale/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=49&zenid=05d7c240a 8791db7c10bd078ba271c2e they are here in Brooklyn, HUGE selection of greens, highly recommended.

    the roaster is a nut roaster that I modified... not pretty, but works great for me..

    I set the fire between 3 and 4 in my stove to make the whole roast last 18-20minutes.
    First crack about 10-12minutes, second crack usually is the last 3minutes.

    very important, the cooling down..
    I use a little "garbage" bucket, a metal strainer which I keep in the freezer, wooden spoon and vacuum "dryer".

    it bring the second crack to 0 (zero) in under a minute.

    Hi Juanjo

    What happens with the chaff?
    Do you blow it away and is there a risk of it catching fire on the stove?

    It certainly is hands on

    Not only are you getting good fresh roasted coffee beans
    You are probably getting a 6 pack while you "work it" [smiley=vrolijk_26.gif]

    Hi Jaunjo thats a very tradtional looking roaster.I would expect this would not be much different to the way Ethiopians have been roasting coffee in there homes from day one.
