it needs a name
I think I bought the first one of these, getting it a few months ago. John, 'coffee roaster' and ebay merchant, emailed copies of the manuals to me. Not sure how to upload the file with this message editor though.
Hi John,lots of ways to roast a bean I like a little airflow as one thing I dislike a lot is anything smokey or grassy taints in my roasts so I have always used a little fan even early in the roast. Increasing it around FC and again toward SC if I am roasting into it decreases the smoke in the drum and moisture and lots of other things. Some may take issue with this method but it has worked for me.I will have a play with 100% power after I get a few more roasts done and don't mind destroying some beans. To much heat and I am a little concerned of charring the outside of the beans due to the configuration of the elements and perforated drum but some experiments are needed and my concerns may be unfounded.My plan is to fit a datalogger into the roaster in the next week then have a serious experiment with just one specific bean and stay with 1kg and then play with the variables and see what I like more
beautiful coffee ! how can you roast like that ! post out my earlier roastings , for laughs.
