Topic: 200 grams in my 1250W Pumper (5 msgs / 76 lines)
1) From: Edward Spiegel
I just thought I'd mention that I've been experimenting with larger loads in my 1250W Wearever Pumper and yesterday did a roast of 200 grams of coffee with a nice profile (first crack from 9 to 11 minutes and the first snaps of second around 13 minutes or so). It did require some assistance from me (occasional shaking to keep things moving) but for me it was worth it since I have company coming from out of town and need more coffee on hand that usual. Note this is a slot-widened pumper. Without slot-widening this amount wouldn't work.

Wow.  Just under a half-pound.  
How was the quality compared to more normal-sized loads?

The quality is comparable to my normal (170 - 180 gram) size roasts, but I did need to baby sit it quite a bit to maintain agitation. I started with 80 grams in the popper and at about 1 minute started slowly adding the other 120 grams bit by bit over about a two minute period. I am very happy with how it came out.

With regards to the agitation part, I have an idea
that may help. I've never had a chance to test this
concept, but I'll be grateful if someone else could
give it a try. I've always wondered if a drill press,
possible connected to a paint stirrer or something
similar, could be used with a popper to assist with
the agitation while roasting beans.
