Topic: Small Old-Fashioned Roaster (6 msgs / 131 lines)
1) From: Tim TenClay
Greetings gurus....
I recall, once upon a time, reading about a small, (charcoal-based?),
roaster that was used in Italy in the past for roasting batches of coffee.
It was hand-powered and suitable for roasting on a patio or something like
that.  Does that sound familiar to anyone?  I've been coveting such a little
beastie for a while (probalby not a good thing since I'm in the middle of
preaching a sermon series on the 10 commandments!)
Does anyone know what I'm talking about?  Can they still be had?  Is there a
name for them?
Just wondering.
Grace and Peace,
  `tim

Tom used to have a picture of something like that on SM someplace--an 
antique.
Might be possible to fabricate one if you're handy--absolving the 
covetous lust.

Tim, I think as long as it's not your neighbor's roaster, you're in the =
clear. Are you thinking of a ball shaped iron roaster that rests over a =
fire or coal bed? I think someone posted a link to one on Ebay a few =
months ago.

When we lived in New Orleans, I saw quite a few people using them on 
gas stoves.  I wish I bought one when I had the chance.  They were 
neat.  Most were copper balls with small holes and a crank to turn it.

I have no idea where they get them.  I saw them for sale, but 
probably in antique stores.  At the time, (about 15 years ago) I 
assumed they were standard items.  We lived in the French Quarter and 
every morning the air was filled with the smell of fresh roasted 
coffee.  My neighbors roasted coffee all the time.
