Topic: Antique roasters? (4 msgs / 96 lines)
1) From: David Westebbe
I've seen lots of antique vac pots and grinders on eBay.  But I've never
seen any antique roasters.  They were standard kitchen appliances until
early in this century, weren't they?
Am I just not looking in the right place?
Has anybody tried using an old charcoal fired hand-cranked roaster?

Do a Google on 
+roaster +coffee -blend -vietnam -flavored -"green coffee beans"
I get quite a few antique roasters and other various types of roasters.

Have seen very few roasters-saw a really ugly one in an antique shop near
me-will check and see if it is still around.  Lots of coffee grinders
however and the attractive ones are really pricey.  Think a lot of poor
people just roasted their beans in cast iron skillets.

Just this morning I was scanning E-bay and say a number of antique 
roasters.  None that I particularly liked but I saw them when I search for 
"coffee roaster".  Got lots of Viet. Blue cloud Robusta too.
