I am curious now.  What's the start up cost to run a 1# USRC?  Example
Startup cost to run RK drum roaster:
- extension cord
- rotisserie kit
- grill (if viable one not present)
- space (if space not present)
- tank of propane
- RK kit (drum and motor, let's say)
For me, the total of this was about $500. One tank of propane for me
is about $15 to fill (including transportation costs).  I probably get
50lbs of coffee roasted at least on that, during the winter, as a
guess.  If I say I've roasted 150lb of coffee in my setup, at those
prices, $545, I'm looking at $3.63 per lb of overhead atop my ~ $7 a
lb coffee (including shipping to MA, this is my average cost).  So I'm
looking at $10.63 a lb as a good estimate for cost of coffee, labor of
love not included.  Thankfully, every addtional lb I roast brings this
cost further down (by the time I have roasted 300lb, at $590, my cost
per lb for equipment will now be $1.96, making my coffee only cost $9
a lb!, and at 450lb, I'm looking at $8.41 a lb)

Room here for nomination of another pet peeve? How about failure to delete
unnecessary repetition of quoted prior posts?
