B-2K+ and cleaning
WOW! After two roasts am I ever impressed with this unit over the Whirlypop!!! Okay, the instruction manual recommends using espresso machine cleaner to clean and de-residue the unit. Is the espresso machine cleaner citric acid or what?????

Up until I took ownership of my B-2K+ unit I always wondered the reason why anyone would ever want to roast more than one batch a week! HA!

Simple Green works on the drum, bean loading chute cover, and the chaff tray. OxyClean (the original unscented) also works but NOT for aluminum.

Do not soak the front cover and do not remove the four little screws that hold the glass in place! Wash it with a scrub brush of some sort, rinse in fresh water, and dry. Compressed air works well on the front cover to dry it and get the trapped chaff out.

I roasted two batches, back to back in mine this past weekend. I roast lighter then most for espresso and wanted to see how well my roasts age.

Life's too short to drink bad coffee.
