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

Good morning, Home Roasters! My name is Chad and I've been home roasting with a modified Poppery II, for the past 4 years. During this time, my wife and I are convinced coffee has become more of a way of life, and not just a fleeting hobby, so we're looking to upgrade our equipment. We're beginning the process of researching small drum roasters (500g - 1kg), and have been snooping around the threads here on this forum for reviews and advice. I look forward to sharing thoughts and ideas!

Thanks for the suggestions. As a current modified Poppery II roaster, I'm certainly not opposed to the DIY option. Having developed a feel for the fluid bed roasting experience, I was looking into maybe just building a larger fluid bed roaster, but the KKTO is also very intriguing - nice work therecool

Cheers!

Yes the fluid bed roaster would be a great DIY project
However itís more demanding engineering wise as all the detailed requirements need to be on speck
Once done it will be a long term roaster

The KKTO is a hybrid design that includes mechanical agitation with reuse of expended heat in a similar way to a fluid bed
You just need to follow the build thread and donít stray from the well researched specs.

Welcome ... and, +1 for a TO based build.
Is the most uniform and wide spread heat source you can have ready to use without any tinkering and for less than $100.
Also, the easiest build, can be done in 2-3 hours if having all the parts on the table.
No welding, no metal works, just drilling and screws.
Not the last, you can start roasting with great results without any electronics hanging around, just a timer and senses.
