1) From: Paul Guncheon
Aloha,
I am a brand new member and have home roasted only a very few times.
My question is "How does one remove the parchment from the dried
beans?" I have been told "There is a machine..." by a coffee grower
here. I have tried a weak food processor which works... poorly.
Otherwise it has been picking the stuff off one bean at a time.
Oh... I have a couple of small coffee trees in my yard.  Wahiawa, Hawaii.
Mahalo for you help,
Paul

Paul I can't help much with the parchment. I have never used any beans other
than SM beans. However, I am only about 12 miles from you in Kailua. If you
have problems with roasting I am just down the road. Barry

You can roast them without removing the parchment.  The drawback is that you
can't see the beans change color.  SweetMarias was selling some coffee in
parchment.  I have a pound of it that I haven't started on.  They called it
RIP for Roast In Parchment.
Also in case you don't already know.  There are big problems with importing
any green coffee's to Hawaii, unless it's been certifiably fumigated a
certain way and a importer license.

Another list member in Hawaii told me he put the beans in a burlap bag
and whacked them with a baseball bat.

I've seen, on cooking shows, some sort of rough rag, or gloves, that 
are used to get the skins off garlic bulbs. It might work .

Thank you Dave, that was me.. The seeds, as you know are very tough and all
you want to accomplish is rubbing them together to sluff off the parchment.
You could just get a handful and briskly rub your hands together to see the
effect.  Actually, I've cleaned quite a few pounds just using that method
alone.
We should try to get the Hawaii Homeroasters together sometime.  Barry
didn't you used to live in Hilo?
Terry/Kona

8) From: Barry Luterman
No always lived on Oahu. Once spent 2 weeks in Hilo. Oh wait it was only a
weekend but it felt like 2 weeks. I think there are only 3 or 4 of us. There
used to be a list member in Captain Cook. don't know if he is there anymore.

That is me.  Still living in Captain Cook.  But I know there was a member in
Hilo, seems 
He had a shop there or something.  As some of the few homeroasters who live
in Coffee producing areas, we ought to get together!

11) From: Barry Luterman
There was he had coffee trees growing in his backyard. Sent a picture of his
wife picking coffee covered in mosquito netting.I thought he was you sorry.
If you get to Oahu give me a call
