    Bar Well coffee roaster

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello everyone,

    does anyone have experience with this roaster? Looks like a stovetop type and it stirs it for you.

    eBay link removed as per Site Posting Policy

    i use a popcorn maker but would like to make big batches.

    cheers

    It's worthless, use a Corretto roaster instead.

    Thanks java

    yes I’ve seen the corretto roaster, didn’t actually realise it was invented by a user? So I could get a bread maker and a heat gun but what do u do with the Teflon coated container? Do u find a bread maker that doesn’t have Teflon or remove the Teflon somehow ?

    Steel wool would do the trick rather nicely I would think.

    There are plenty of people who started out on popcorn poppers for coffee roasting. Plenty of threads on here if you are interested and don't mind the small batch size of 70-80 grams.

    ...and prob other threads here.

    We would have 100's of CoffeeSnobs using it if it wasn't junk and could roast.

    As suggested, lots of better home built options or invent your own.
    Dog bowl, wooden-spoon and a heatgun works fine, add a windscreen wiper motor to save manual stirring or use a breadmaker to stir it.
    In no time you'll be looking at stainless rubbish bins and blow-torches totally differently.
