1 lb roasted lasts a week. I can taste the flavor increase to peak, then drop after. Still very good, but interesting to follow the wave of flavor rise and fall.

I seem to have lost any roasting touch I thought I had. Very frustrated to be wasting time and money. I’m hoping someone can provide some insight on roasting at high altitude. I’m at 4400ft. Thank

Drum roaster from scratch
robkun
Hi everyone,

I am really new to this forum, and generally I am a newbie in the filed of home coffee roasting.
Nevertheless, in the past I have tried several methods to roast coffee, but seemingly drum roasters are the best suitable machines to get the right roast results. Furthermore, instead of buying a roaster, I have decided to build one from scratch. ThumbsUp

I have already some CAD drawing about the main components of the housing, but I failed to figure out how the rotating shaft (diam.: 12 mm, for the drum rotation) is mounted to the bushing and the front panel of the roaster. Is there any special flanged bearing unit to use? I also don't now, if one must use heat resistant (high temperature) ball bearings or not. How did you mounted the beraing and the shaft in your roasters?

Reagrding size of the drum: it is about 20 cm (~ 8inch) in diameter and has 25 cm (~10 inch) length.

Since I am quite in the beginning of this project, in the planning phase, I don't have any picture to post, yet.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Best regards from Germany,
Robert

Hi renatoa,

what do you mean? Grin

That could be other machines in the 1 kg ballpark you are aiming (supposed on drum size), easier to build than a drum machine (for me), and giving good results, even pro grade I dare to say.

Stronghold (S7) is a commercial such machine, costing $$$$, that can be replicated pretty easy, despite the futuristic look it exhibits.
