New to the lists, and have a question for the masses. I use a IRoast2 for my personal use and love it! I got introduced to fresh roasted, fresh ground, fresh brewed coffee via a friend at work and we started a coffee snobs group. We are up to 11 people but said friend is now leaving and taking his 3KG roaster with him. So we are now at an impasse....disband (I'll still have homeroasted due to my IRoast but I'm not willing to burn it up trying to supply enough for 11 people), order from someone who will ship to us (and pay a premium price), or buy a roaster for our group that will generate 2-3 pounds a week without a lot of time investment (i.e. repetitive roasts). I have been looking at Hottops, but am open to any and all suggestions...my biggest concern is what is the rest of the group going to do once they realize the "dealer" is cutting off their "crack":) Cheers! Scott
For 11 people RK Drum is about the only way to go unless you have a lot of time on your hands . You are talking about an 11 lb output per week. On a hottop the would equal 20 loads at an average with clean up of 1/2 hour /load or a minimum of 10 hours per week of roasting.
Welcome Scott! Sweet Marias sells roasted beans. Figure out your monthly quantity required, then divvy that up by 8, and assess dues accordingly. Buy coffee on schedule, and invite others. THEN, bring your own homeroast to share as a gift when you like. ONE of the rules for homeroasting, is that you are not required to feed the masses. That's a different ministry. Fact is, you have changed several lives, and the miserable parasites should be a little grateful... OH, and when some of them balk at the price, the dues will still suffice to cover the ones who wish to participate! Welcome, Brett On 4/17/07, Scott Stevenson wrote: <Snip>
