I can't see anyone being offended by your post, it is open and honest. It's
the deceitful posts and the outright commercial without an intro type
spammers that tick people off round here. Please hang around and join the
discussions from time to time. The flip side is that you may well get
business by word of mouth from the folks you get to know here on a.c. Of
course you might not get business, but just get to talk about coffee.
By all means include a link to your site in you sign off on posts, some of
the regular commercial coffee folks do that here.
I may well be on the same journey you have been on. I work full time (not
with coffee) but
roast for a few friends etc and have built several fluid air bed roasters.
My current roaster is good for about 2.2kg of green and uses an LPG burner
for the heat source.
I am curious about your roast times. I have come to favour a roast time of
about 11 minutes, with a reasonably specific roast profile.
I intend building a 5kg roaster next (probably early next year the way
things are going at present). Was intending to switch to a drum roaster for
this one but with a high air flow to enable roasts of a similar time without
scorching the beans.
