Thanks, but I've probably only considered the tip of the iceberg. The more I
know the more I know I don't know.
If & when you do design and build a homeroasters dream, plan on building
more than one! Seriously. Many people pay well over a $1000 or even $2000 to
grind and brew at home. If a truly superb roaster, with a good batch size
range of say 1/2 to 2# capacity, with great profiling capabilities etc.
where availabe, I have no doubt there would be those willing, anxious and
able to pay $1000+.
If a person's time is factored into the cost equation, it can really make
sense. 3 to 6hrs per week, every week, roasting small batches or 1 maybe 2
hours roasting fewer larger batches. (weakness here being fewer varieties at
a time possibly.) But the cost in man hours savings. In quick rough
estimates a $2000 dollar roaster would take me about 2yrs 'to pay for' at
most. This doesn't even take in a side roasting business considerations.
