The one good thing about the CG search function is that these old threads get dug up on occasion.  I enjoyed reading this.

also wesc, welcome to coffeegeek!  Interesting stuff about the reason why they put BPA on cans.  I had been wondering about that!

Had you thought about patenting it? I think it will sell much better than pop corn popper. I think you have a business to build. A Stove top roaster.
Find a good Industrial Designer to help you develop it to a nice product. I think you can make it a $30 kit or $100 small machine.

No Patent, no business.  Its simply my contribution to the home roasting movement.  I hope who ever makes a million dollars off of it sends me a check...but I'm not holding my breath!

Hey Tim,

They're talking about it right now on Google Groups, a recently formed moderated group by Jim Gallt of PID Kits fame called alt-coffee-moderated.

Timmy boy,
my first time seeing this as well. I am ashamed. LOL
This is awesome in it's simplicity and ability to perform at a high level.
BTW, did I miss how the coffee tastes?

I bow to your creativity, and appreciate your humility.

I found an Aluminum bottle with the dimensions:  6.75"x3"

It is also BPA free.


It appears that it needs no modification to mouth, just the addition of veins.  You can google "Brunton Aluminum Bottle" or view the link on Amazon here:  http://www.amazon.com/Brunton-Aluminum-Water-Bottle-Liter/dp/B002IF1YL4


Anyone else think this may be a good canidate for the SCR?


edit:  they have an epoxy coating on the inside:(  - you could burn that out though I think?

There is a company marketing a drum roaster compatible with a stove--it's just ridiculously expensive at $357.

Click Here (www.coffee-tech.com)

Click Here (www.amazon.com)

I think there is room in the market for a much cheaper version.  Of course it's a pretty small market right now.
