    Best BM for a Corretto

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Getting down to brass tacks now - I have the HG and stand sorted and a fan on the way. Perusing Facebook marketplace and scumtree for a cheap BM; there are plenty to choose from.

    So, any particular models I should look out for? Ideally I'd like to avoid having to make any rewiring mods to get a suitable cycle...

    Hi Matt
    The Bosch and Makita variable temp/fan speed heat guns are ideal for Corretto roasters!!

    One with a jam cycle will give you the constant stirring motion you need Matt.

    Maybe try claim that free Breville Ikon in Alexandria? (Gumtree) I had one of those machines when I was in Tassie (for making actual bread) and I thought it was pretty good. Plenty of customisable cycle options.

    Or get any bread maker and McGiver it to turn the paddle motor whenever it's plugged in. You will need to be electrically qualified of course.

    They work better hacked up with pan insulation, sealed lid etc.

    Cheers

    Yep, sorted with a near new Ryobi HG for fifty bucks 👍

    Good spot Al, have sent her a message. Good tip with the jam cycle as well, gives me something to go off as it's a feature that'd most likely be advertised.

    Definitely not electrically qualified and don't fancy killing myself to save a few bucks, so I'll wait for something suitable to come up. Already have an Aldi fire blanket for insulation, guess I should grab a heatsnob and serial port adapter while I'm waiting... 🤔

    You can borrow my DMM and probe to lower the cost of entry to see if you like the CS software or want to try something else

    Behmor Coffee Roaster
    (Because I would recommend an Arduino and TC4 setup as a more flexible and better long term option)
