peveleth, It is better if you start a post in the forum with your question. These shouts go away in time.

For Gene Cafe Roasters I have an older Gene Cafe Roaster. Temp fluctuates probably showing age. Question: For recent owners of the newer Gene Cafe Roaster, your opinions?

Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Drum angle
kwrcst
Hi again all,

can anyone share the angle your drum is set up on so it allows for bean drop when the door is open? I figure it doesn't need to bee too steep but I doubt it can be completely flat.


thanks

Kelly

Is the first time I hear there is such angle... always thought the beans are pushed outside by vanes !
 
kwrcst
Looking at some of the example drums, it looks like the vanes pull the beans towards the back as they toss them in the air. I assumed, there was a slight angle involved to get them to return to the front of the chamber
 
Stew
Drum is level, outer vanes against the drum move the beans forward (and out) and the inner vanes move them back to keep them evenly distributed while roasting.
 
kwrcst
Ahhh. that makes sense now.
