Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

A skerton sounds like a great idea until you crank that M.F. about 10,000 times, and then you hate it.

I have a vintage hand grinder that I hate with a passion. It makes a great grind, but I hate...

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

By the way, drum roasters are really sexy.

Had a buddy offer me an old gas grill which I really wanted to convert into a drum roaster. Wish I had taken him up on it. Roasting 3 pounds at a time?...

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

I met some guys at a herf last year, and pnoon said "This is the guy who holds the record!"

They looked at me with sincere reverence.

It's good to be the king!

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

"Cheap" and "consistent" are mutually exclusive. You can either have cheap OR consistent.

With that said, given that you are doing either press or drip, a cuisinart or other general appliance...

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

It's all a matter of personal preference. I've brewed beans fresh off the cooling tray, and I've waited 3-4 days. If you are French-pressing the coffee, give it two or three days to degas. Other...

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

That is exactly what an SC/CO roaster is (acronym for "Stir Crazy / Convection Oven)

Sadly, the price spike is affecting green beans, too... However, to a lesser extent. Besides, once you go FRESH...

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

The heat gun blows the chaff between the wall of the bread machine and the pan, with a little escaping out the top. I have seen people craft aluminum foil gaskets to prevent "chaff fountains", but I...

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

IMHO, it provides a more even roast & has higher capacity (1-2 lbs) than a popcorn popper or SC/CO. I have roasted in both, but YMMV.

By far, finding a popcorn popper that is correctly vented is...

Re: Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

A minimum set up (bread machine @ $6.00, heat gun @ $20.00, analog scale @ $5.00) will get you roasting today, and has a capacity of 1 ~ 2 lbs of beans per roast. However, you won't be able to...

Corretto roaster, or how to start roasting for less than $100.00

All,

I have been espousing the virtues of a Corretto roaster for quite some time, and wanted to give a little push towards an alternative roasting set up that is a bit different than the SC/CO...
