I just received a new shipment of green coffee – a Peruvian, Organic, Rainforrest Alliance coffee and an Ethopian Yirgacheffe Peaberry. The weather is nice, so I roasted a pound of the Peruvian this afternoon. My roaster of choice is the hybrid UFO / Turbo Oven hybrid. Recent modifications / improvements to this system include the mounting of a digital thermometer probe in the “roast chamber” and a silicone tube which acts as a seal where the Turbo Oven sits on the spacer ring.
The freshly-roasted coffee is “resting”. Tonight I get to sample a cup of the freshest coffee around! Something to look forward to, for sure!
Here is a video of this home-fashioned roaster in action.
