I have been trying Scott Rao Hario V60 pourover this week. 1:17 and blooming with 2 parts water the first 45 seconds then splitting the rest into 2 pours. A little stirring is included. We like it.

My brew ratio is 1:17 (exactly 59.5 g/L). That's roughly 8.5g per 5-oz cup.

I'm looking to hire someone to teach/help me to find the best roast profile for the 3 types of coffee that grow on my farm in nicaragua. I live in LA, but but could go anywhere in so cal with my Behmor for a roasting lesson. Please contact me if you're in

When your wife thinks 30 grams for a 6 cup setting is strong, you learn to drink muddy water when you are making coffee for both of you.

I use a rule of thumb of 60 grams per liter. 8 cups (1 liter, 32 oz) = 60 grams, 6 cups (3/4 liter, 24 oz) = 45 grams. 10 cups = 75 grams 12 cups = 90 grams

one (big) hole, to rule them all Grin



Power required: 15 Kw 16 A 5 poles.
Max. roasting capacity: 2 Kg.

Strange that it requires so much power for 2kg.
I agree, and looking at one of the charts we have based on quite a few other commercial builds, it seems to be more than double the norm.

1/2 lb and 1 lb drum, Siemens Sirocco fluidbed, presspot, chemex, cajun biggin brewer from the backwoods of Louisiana
This build is of interest for me as a method of agitation, nothing else.
I see this built as a closed oven, full of hot air provided by other methods, for example the floor could be a TO, why not... or circular heaters in the walls... and the central jet using the same air as in the rest of the oven, recirculated and pumped under pressure for beans ejecting, but not heated separately.
There are a few novel things in this machine... albeit not the spouting action.

The shield that blocks beans from being ejected into the chaff collector, an interesting charge hopper that swivels over a charge port, and the unique bottom roast chamber drop feature, which are not common on fluid bed roasters.

I'm not sure, but this seems to be an early video of first small scale prototypes for their roasters.

Interesting. Now that gives me an idea.
