Suck and cool lazy style
jkoll42
I didn't see anything like this so forgive me if this is an old idea. I am working on the new roaster and was trying to figure out how to dump the beans. Picking the whole thing up and physically tipping it over seemed lame and the though of building a whole locking setup made me tired.

I use a colander/bucket system already hooked up to the shop vac so I figured why not just jusk the beans out of the rc and forget about dumping them altogether.

It's the same bucket setup as usual but with a lid that has 4" alum dryer vent stuck through the top. The get sucked (very quickly) into the colander and then you just pop the lid off and cool as usual. 2 pounds of beans take about 6 seconds.

It need some tweaking - I plan on using a piece of 4" sheet alum to make an easier to control end to the hose and probably notch the base of the alum so that it is easier to get it unstuck from the rc base. The suction is so strong that it cracked the lid into 4 pieces the first time, hence the duct tape in the video.

Any further thoughts or ideas, let me know! Sorry for things being out of frame in the video - this was a last minute idea to shoot it and I am short on time.

The keyword in the post has me scratching my head. What is "jusk."

I am here to confuse both in the title and post. Although now that you mention it, jusk seems like it should be a word.

Mods.... jusk = suck

I've seen this done before on coffeesnobs.com.au website while I was researching KKTO style roasters. Very effective way to cool and transfer the beans!!

I used to suck beans into something similar to an RC, minus the perf plate
Thr suction motor was above the chamber, beans enter bottom of chamber thru a hose.
Once the beans entered this chamber, the hose was removed. The beans remained aloft until the suction was turned off. Then they would fall into the awaiting container .
Nice work. Looking forward to watching the whole evac sequence. -Scott

This system has been developed by KKTO users from about 2 years ago

Works well & without fuss
Some are direct vacuum only and some are a dual system, that uses a vacuum to suck the beans and switched to an exhaust fan to prevent the vacuum from tripping due to overheating
