I read somewhere that higher elevations have faster roast time and require somewhat lower temperatures. air is thin and has less Oxygen

Yes, 1st off, you must use only Panama Esmeralda Geisha beans and be sure to only roast on Saturdays. Actually, this isn't completely true. Please post in all about roasters forum. Thx!

I’m at 9,000 feet elevation, is there any special adjustments that need to be made to roast using an SR 540 at this elevation?

Hello from Wisconsin
JSA Coffee
Hello all,

I am from Wisconsin, just about 30 miles south of Green Bay. My rig right now is an old gas grill with a 2 pound CRC drum. I have been roasting for a few months, and started on with a Whirleypop, then quickly moved to a Ronco, and now to the BBQ.. So far, I like roasting the Central American beans. I am going to start a business soon for fresh roasted coffee. I realize I have a lot to learn yet, but I learn best by doing.
Welcome to HRO! Good to have another BBQ roasting coffee fanatic in our group!

I've heard that many have gotten top tier quality results from a simple BBQ drum setup with little to no temperature feedback. Be sure to put a thread together in the BBQ roaster forum and let others know what techniques are working for you for achieving great roasts.

Centrals from the right farm or coop can still cup with the best the planet has to offer. I recently had a Costa from Happymug that is stellar.

Be sure to share with us how your business comes along. Hopefully we can lend a hand with any roasting questions.

1/2 lb and 1 lb drum, Siemens Sirocco fluidbed, presspot, chemex, cajun biggin brewer from the backwoods of Louisiana
