After 5 years of roasting first in a whirly popcorn popper and then 4 years in a GHene CAfe, I have finally made the plunge.
A week ago I ordered a Solar Roaster (2 kilo) from coffere-tech Engineering (israel). I am awaiting notification that it's ready for shipment like an expectant father!!! Our coffee consumption , just my wife and me, works out to about 4 lbs every 3 weeks. In my Gene CAfe that's one full day of roasting every 21 days (8 oz. / batch).
My new Solar will roast 6 weeks supply in one cycle.
We drink only decaf! Over a two year period we have developed a decaf blend that my wife is nuts about (me too). It's a blend of 5 single origins and a bit of Sweet Marias Donkey blend.
I think I'll have a cup right now.... yeah, I think I'll just do that!
