While you were sleeping I have been active in booting out some spammers along with the posts they tried to sneak past me

Eth Nat Yirg Idido roasted yesterday. I dropped some off at a friends coffee shop. In a few days he will brew it and tell me what he thinks. We believe my roasts are better than what we buy.

My new Kaldi (Korean Drum Roaster)
HTO posted: Hi, anyone know would 1100 watt burner be ok for this size or two 750s be better? I believe it was Allen who posted doc on power requirements, but can't find it now to save my life. Thanks for any feedback.

Here ya go


Depending on ambient temp and other factors there's a good chance you'll be able to get away with lower power heat sources but to have some headroom, the recommended btu/kw suggestions are most likely pretty close to where you'll want to be.

1/2 lb and 1 lb drum, Siemens Sirocco fluidbed, presspot, chemex, cajun biggin brewer from the backwoods of Louisiana
Thank you! It will be simpler to mount one element, so gonna give it a shot ...if I get one. Still debating. Going back and forth with new fluid roaster, but would like to try drum for a while maybe. Also contemplating a dual roast station with kaldi and new fluid bed. Hinged base so can dump Kaldi into fluid bed for cooling. :)
Hi Guys,

I'm new to the forum here, but I've been roasting coffee on a Kaldi Wide for about a month now. It's an awesome little roaster, but I'm still having a hard time dialing in a profile that I like. I'm used to roasting on solid drum commercial roasters and previously was roasting on a Whirley Pop at home.

Dealing with a perforated drum and no forced airflow is difficult for me to get used to.

I'll be sure to start a thread about my new roaster.
Kaldi Wide & Whirley Pop
Thanks for the replies! I've gone back and forth on the Kaldi since my home built roaster is taking longer than I'd like (don't they always??), and heat gun roasting has gotten a bit old after 3 years...
Scratch that - no more back and forth. I'll be roasting on a Kaldi wide in the near future Grin
Let me say hello to you with my manual Kaldi.
Amazing little toy. Although I am still learning, it already have given me some amazing roasts.
Natural Yirga Rocko Mountain - one of my fauvorites - was undistinguishable in blind test with "proffesionaly" roasted same bean, it is pretty amazing.
