It has been an unforgiving winter. Pro roasters have supplied my needs for the last several months. Finally last week-end it was warm enough (low 60s) to trot out my iron fry pan, wooden spoon and uncover the gas grill. I did 8 oz each of a Columbia Huila and SM Liquid Amber.

It being about three days of rest I did a double on the Lelit and remembered why I bother to do this.

I will not mention the name of the previous pro roast except to say that the only way I could enjoy it was as an Americano.

My home roasted Liquid Amber was, to my taste, far superior, but than as the man said who was caught kissing a cow, "To each his own."

sweet Marisa's Liquid Amber is one of my favorite blends.  Not a fan of some of the workshop ones though....

Take a look at the picture next to my profile. It is a DIY stainless steel pot style roaster. I have roasted with it for a full year now in my garage, and I live in Portland Oregon. The roaster goes over a Coleman Perfect Flow single burner camp stove. I have never required more than level 3 (medium) of six possible heat levels to roast up to 300 grams of beans.

^^^ I would enjoy seeing pictures of your setup.  I clicked on the avatar, and could not see anything.

Michael LLoyd,

I appreciate your interest. I have hesitated to post pictures of my coffee roaster on this site, as I find that I usually have to edit/crop my pictures due to the data limitations of coffee geek. If you are interested in viewing some shots of the roaster, simply Google the following term: "stainless steel manual roaster". I designed the roaster over a year ago after purchasing a roaster that I found to limiting in size. The roaster I purchased did not have an agitator, and had limited air flow. If you are not able to find my roaster on Google, then do a native search of HB (home barista).

I have recently made what I believe to be my final modification to my roaster a couple of months ago. I simply added four holes to the bottom of the roaster giving me a nice passive airflow through the roaster. I have not documented that on HB.

I only mention HB here as they allow far more data (pictures) to be posted on their site.

TY
Pat Marnell
