Hello from Pittsburgh
BottomlessCup57
I started roasting a couple of months ago. I have a 'BarKay" crockpot style roaster that's pretty basic. It roasts and stirs the beans, I have to blow away the chaff as I sift them after stopping the roast. I'm finding I prefer a medium to med-dark roast. Seems to give me the best balance of body and flavor. I have a decidedly unsophisticated palate, so you won't see me describing flavors too often. I either like a coffee or I don't.

It looks like a crockpot, a shallow one with two arms that constantly stir the beans. It has a glass cover with airholes to let steam escape.

Here's a photo. Hold up to 750 gms, but I've only done a lo at a time.

Welcome

I see on our market crockpots are associated mainly with slow cooking concept, which means low temperature, under boiling point, i.e. 100 C... how is supposed to roast with such low temperature ? Shock

If you are having trouble posting photos:

Don't use preview post.
Keep your filename simple no spaces. Linux filename rules.
jpg, png seem to work best.
I also have better luck resizing photos for web viewing.

Let me know if you are still having trouble.

It just looks like a crockpot, but it heats up as you'd expect a coffee roaster to do.

Here is the roaster. It goes up to 240C, if the thermostat is accurate. I'll try to post a video of it in action. Still learning how to do this kind of thing.

Nope. OK, I'm lost.Shock

File jpg 1.2MB. Trying to upload from "Choose File", from a MacBook, if that matters. Haven't previewed, but nor have I resized. What's the secret?
