Yesterday I had some game hens in the smoker and decided to try smoking some green Timor coffee beans,about 6 ounces..... I used apple wood for the smoke.

The beans were in the smoker for about 4 1/2 hrs,and took on a bit of grayness and a nice smokey aroma. I roasted them to full city roast and today just tried them in an espresso.

There is a definite smokey character,and it really shows up in the aroma while pulling the shot as well.

I will try this again.........

Kinda reminds me of Russian Caravan Tea... the leaves are smoked which leaves a distinct smokiness to it.

If I had a smoker, I would for sure try this.

I had been wondering about this. I've never roasted coffee, but it seems like most tumble or agitate the beans to create a more uniform roast. Was this a problem in the smoker? Or did you stir them?

Did not roast them in the smoker,just smoked them.THEN I roasted them in a roaster.
Smoker temps are around 225-275 for smoking purposes.
Roasting coffee starts around 390 and runs to 430 or so,depending on how dark you want it.

Did another trial ,combined Terrazu and Bali in the smoker,this time for 6 hours.The beans took on a nice golden brown color,and have a very smoky aroma.I used about 4 oz of each,let it sit for 24 hours before roasting,and roasted to midway through second crack.
In espresso there is a noticeable smoky taste,a slight smoky aroma,and in a drip machine you get a little of the smoke flavor,less aroma.
These two beans are compatible to co-roast,and as espresso do a passable job mixed 50-50.
