Topic: Walk-in roaster/blender/brewer (12 msgs / 275 lines)
1) From: Michael Wascher
A design for an automated coffee shop. Several varieties of green beans,
that are roasted in small batches. Roasted beans blended to order & brewed.
Here's the link:http://www.gizmag.com/the-walk-in-coffee-machine/9177/Near the end the article has a link to a Design News magazine that has more
details about it. It roasts using an "off-the-shelf micro roaster". Does
anybody recognize it from the photo?

Looks like  Sivetz-style roaster to me. Cna't remember what the name of the company is that produced that particular roaster, though. Pretty cool ~ Hunt

Yea, I want a walk-in coffee shop for home! But expanded to allow 8
varieties -- dump in a Sweet Maria's sample pack in one end, espressos
out the other end.

I was in NYC last Thanksgiving and ran across this place completely by
chance.  I didn't grab a cup but it looked pretty cool inside and out.  The
roaster looked like a low-volume custom job to me, but memory may be failing
me.  The bartender serving drinks next door spoke highly of the coffee
coming out of there.
In any case, it seems sort of funny that this place is in NYC where the
population defines "coffee" as the stuff they get from Dunkin Donuts with
loads of cream and sugar...blech!

You must be thinking of Boston with the DD comment.  It's a veritable coffee
wasteland.
NYC, on the other hand, has some of the best cafes in the country -- I'd put
Café Grumpy or 9th St. up against just about anyone.  And based on the fa=
ct
that both of them have opened up multiple locations, someone there must be
drinking it.

I've heard the same thing about Boson, but while in Manhattan a few people
told me I had to try DD.  I've only hung out there a few times so my
experiences are definitely limited, but the feeling I got was that New
Yorkers aren't really into coffee....at least compared to us here on the
west coast.  The next time I'm there I'd definitely like to seek out some
good cafes since the obviously exist.

I live here and I can tell you, there is a "Dunks" on just about every
block.  They even managed to drive Krispy Kreme out of town.

"...the Javabot_delivers a coffee with your favourite blend of seven beans,
plus how they are roasted, ground and the temperature at which the coffee is
brewed, all inside 30 seconds. It?s the only walk-in coffee machine in the
world right now, but we suspect the number will grow rapidly once people
understand what it delivers."
An Amway or Shaklee distributor couldn't have obfuscated it better. I wants
me coffee, not soap.
Rumor has it that JavaBotch did all of this to attract *$ or some other
vulture capitalist to their fold. Clover could be had; JB will be available.

Ever visited the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago?

The article in Design News at the end of the blurb is a better read. The
designer is quoted as saying that roasted coffee needs to rest, and that you
wouldn't want to drink a cup made from beans that were just roasted. So it
sounds like the guy gets it, though that doesn't mean the implementation is
correct. A chance of getting a decent cup when I'm out & about doesn't sound
all bad, and I don't care whose name is on the cup.
Been to the Chicago Museum.

My first impression of the Javabot is that it looks like one of the museum
displays I remember from the late 40's to early 50's.
Whoa- the Monkey blend really shines at 42 hours since roasting. I'll just
have to roast more of the Classic Italian Espresso blend. It was a giant,
right out of the roaster with its blast of mint. That'll be great in the
morning
A Peet's or Novo press is some pretty good, reliable coffee. It's too bad
Baroness took gas- John pulled an excellent shot.
The double at Metropolis was served in a ceramic thumble. I'm sure they
never meant to market straight shots, or maybe their matcheen is seasoned
and I'm an über clean paranoid. If that was a double, I'm brewing Magnums
without blonding on 14g of beans.
