Topic: Low Tek Coffee Roaster (2 msgs / 36 lines)
1) From: W. P
Hi all!
Big Skip from Cape Cod MA here.  I'm new to this game and have only been roasting a little over a year.  I started with a Cast Iron Skillett on my gas grill, graduated to a NESCO PRO and now use a home made Showtime 1lb roaster set up.  I'm about to purchase the 5 lb model from coffeeroasterclub.com in CT.  For shorts and giggles I posted a little video on youtube after taking some pics and vids in my cellar last weekend while roasting some of Maria's Perros Bravos coffee. (there isn't much to do on the Cape in the winter) Again it is and I'm very Low Tech and will continue to be but damn this makes a great bunch of coffee. Here's the web address:  www.youtube.com/capecodcoffeeman.
I really enjoy reading all of your postings and know I have and will learn alot more from you all.
So....keep those cards and letters coming folks,  Let me know what you think of the vid online at youtube and maybe we can all have some fun with this.
LIFE IS SHORT DRINK MORE COFFEE...yeeeee haaaaa.
Peace Out.
Big Skip in East Falmouth MA.

Big Skip,
       Nice video, my first comment is that if it is taking 55 minutes  
to roast, you don't have sufficient heat.  I rarely let a roast go  
beyond seventeen minutes.  I usually aim for fifteen to seventeen  
minutes.  I've had a similar cooling device in the planning stage for  
about three years now.  Someday the gotta and oughta list will make  
time for the wanta list.
