Topic: Solar roasting? (3 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: Leo Demski
Hey All! Thanks for the voluminous posts regarding all facets of coffee! It=
s been quite an education!
With the economic downturn, I've been trying to roast as cheaply as possibl=
e, with good quality SM beans of course! I use the age-old whirly pop- my t=
hird one so far- thank goodness they show up in the local thrift stores her=
e in south Florida for about $5. Since we are blessed with so much sun here=
 in Sarasota, I've been experimenting with solar ovens and solar cooking in=
 general.
Has anyone done any roasting via solar cookers? It seems like it would be i=
deal- the focused sun is hot enough to cook just about anything else...and =
we've adapted our cooker to rotate with the changes in position of the sun =
so its always overhead of the cooker. Any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks and keep the awesome posts coming! Someday when I'm back on my feet =
financially, I hope to delve into the roasting more to the degree that y'al=
l are in it for. For now, its the whirly pop, the moka pot and the french p=
ress for me.
May your chaff fly easily off the beans,
-Leo

There's a sweet setup roaming the western US that uses a massive solar
reflector (4m sat dish like reflector) for roasting. Go google it, I saw
some videos online and it is very cool.
