Topic: Caffeine, Roasting and Smoke (12 msgs / 457 lines)
1) From: Aaron
Quick question.   The smoke from roasting has caffeine in it I am told.
How much?
Would roasting a few batches in a semi closed environment be enough to 
give you a 'contact buzz' from the caffeine in the smoke, (picture the 
smoke like an area where smokers gather indoors) or is the amount in the 
smoke really small?
just curious

I have no way of knowing which compounds in the smoke are responsible 
but I definitely "get a buzz" from roasting more than a few batches 
outside so I would expect the effect to be even greater in an enclosed 
space.

3) From: Cameron Forde
I roast inside and I've noticed the caffeine-in-the-smoke effect.
After four roasts (Hottop) one evening I had trouble sleeping that
night.  Normally I only do one or  two roasts at a time and don't
notice the caffeine.

Well, I usually roast late at night, 3 or 4 i-Roast2 loads per night,  
and I have no trouble falling asleep as the scent of roasting smoke  
hangs in the air.

Another midnight roaster?
I just finished the last roast of my Flores Bajawa Highlands about 30
minutes ago.
The new Flores on SM is a dry processed bean. I'm trying to decide what to
put in for my order before the site goes to no order status for the
holidays. This DP bean is definitely in the running.
cheers,
Scott

I often roast in a wok in the kitchen.  I find that when I roast  
after 8:00 p. m. I am unable to get to sleep until after 1:00. That  
makes it kind of rough getting up at 4:30.

I don't mind smelling of coffee smoke. Now, *tobacco* smoke is  
another story--every time I come home from singing in a bar, I have  
to take a shower before going to sleep because I can't stand to keep  
smelling my hair on the pillow--and stinking up the linens as well.  
Showering at 3 am is truly a PITA.

i've been told that coffee smoke is rather dangerous.  
supposedly it contains a high amount of some toxin
which leads to kidney failure.  
i was told this in the context of professional
roasters that do 75lbs at a time, so
probably not something the homeroaster needs to worry
about (or any worse than hanging out in a bar).
but i try not breathe in when i am leaning over my p1,
especially at the end of a vienna or fc+.
its probably just best not to let it linger, 
(or treat your roaster like a bong for that matter).
i always roast outside, though thats probably because i use an air popper.
sorry to rain on your roast.

I found these articles:  I roast 1/2lb at a time in the basement (under 3lbs
per week).  ....I think my batches are small enough to where this isn't a
problem as these articles discuss large scale roasters. Regardless, I'm
moving operations to the garage where I can open the door and use an exhaust
fan to push the smoke out...http://www.baaqmd.gov/pmt/handbook/s11c03fr.htmhttp://www.roastmagazine.com/backissues/septoct2006/blowingsmoke.html
