Ill try to attach a word document that may be useful. I first put it together as a bit of info for one of the Celebrate the Bean festivals in Melbourne.
Just updating a few things and tring to get the size under 5Mb (lots of pictures).
*EDIT* Hmm. Still wont let me attach even though I got it down to 2,252Kb. Oh well - Ill investigate if I can whack it somewhere on the web and post the link.
Hands up who is at work during the very very slow period?
OK, I think the limit for attachments is actually 500Kb and not 5000Kb as it currently states. Ill have to either decrease the picture quality or whack it on Google docs. Unfortunately, I dont have access to a picture editor OR Google docs from work, so it will be later tonight.
In a nutshell though, you need:
- A roasting drum of some kind. People have been known to use an empty catering size Milo tin with holes in it.
A mechanism to turn the drum
A method of loading/removing beans when hot.
A method for cooling and blowing off excess chaff.
