In the popcorn air poppers, it works pretty well for me to start out
with two ounces (volumetric) of green beans. Roasting normally gives
about a three ounce yield, if I let it go into second crack.
Friends don't let friends roast new varieties so dark to start. I found
I was passing many flavor stages doing that to some Guatemala Antigua
when I first roasted it.[Read the notes first, Ray!]
The wintertime power distribution in this fifty-year old residential
area ranges from 118vac to a max of 126vac. Summer is likely to droop or
almost brownout when the neighbors all turn on their central A/C's.
Gotta get an RK drum and move beyond the Coffee 101 sample roasting. My
93-year old piano teacher (Pearl) gave me her gas barbeque grill-
"What are you going to do with it, Ray?-
"Hmmm, probably rig some sort of drum on the rotisserie and roast coffee-
"That's odd- is the coffee good?-
"a.) I'm odd, and b.) Incredible!-
"Well, will you make some for us? (Her sister, Ethel is 90, also taught
and just sold her Baldwin!)-
"That's a cinch!"
Now I have to finish a couple of music motif quilts I started. I've
never seen any fabric prints that would lend themselves to a coffee
design. Probably pixellate and digitize some coffee scene and make my
own quilt pattern. With a Burbank daughter and a local daughter-in-law,
both of whom have Maserati Macs, I shouldn't have to beg too hard for
help and ideas.
Would an RK Drum be an interesting image when pixellated and quilted? I
could quilt the aroma lines with a long arm. Stay tuned.
Or not. If this has become disinteresting, please stop reading wherever
it became such.
