    rare beans ready to be roasted

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    hi guys, im new on this forum and i found it by click from link to link on wiki.

    i was looking around for advices coz i got a bag of some rare beans in capo verde... yknow i could drink this nice special coffee when i was traveling from island to island so when i had the chance to go on the top of the volcano where cap verdians harvesters produce it i bought a bag of this green beans.

    now im back home and would be a great satisfaction to be able to complete the coffes beans preparation and drinkem all... eheh

    i thought i can use my antique stove and roast it using wood. considering that ive been in those places where they even roast it i can tell you they have just rudimentary devices.

    sorry for this long run writing ithought it was nice to tell you how i got this unknow beans

    Welcome Truciolo

    Interesting. I doubt if any of us have roasted beans from this area and it is hard to provide advice on the best way to roast them. So the best advice I can offer is to just give it a go.
    Theres a link here on pan-roasting coffee which will give you some idea of how to go about it. The only problem with using your wood-fired stove is that you cant control the heat as easily as for electric or gas stove but, according to the article, you need a low heat

    Welcome truciolo!,
    Quite an opening story!, stovetop can be used but probably not the best means to get the most out of your beans, id recommend a popper, details on how to use a popcorn popper can be found here;

    Another cheap option to start roasting is a heatgun, bowl and a wooden spoon, use the search function to find some tips on how to do it.

    Then you get into the KK Turbo roaster;

    And the Corretto roaster found here:

    BBQ roasters;

    etc etc etc
    that should give you some reading material ;D

    Once again welcome to the world of Coffeesnobs!
