Topic: Roaster efficiency RE: +New "mid-range"Hottop model available (56 lines)
1) From: John Moody
As the roaster becomes more efficient, undesirable roast offgassing products
such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde are more concentrated around the bean.
Not choosing recirculation is deliberate for some, and poor efficiency
accepted.  For the 8AM bean makers, pounds/watt is a much higher priority,
and the coffee in the cup gives some drinkers headaches.
You could pull the packing out of an old Thrush for a roaster project and
roast the beans for free during the commute to work.  Thatís real efficient.
