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

OldMan41, depends what is "a pot"... usually is more accurate to specify the brew ratio, instead grams of coffee. The most usual is 1:15, thus 40 grams for 600 ml of water. If the 100 grams are for one liter pot, then we are talking about 1:10 ratio.

Mystery new chinese drum roaster
renatoa
Noticed today this strange Apple-sque white arrival:

https://www.aliex...20680.html

Probably is the cheapest solution that can be found for 1.5 kg roaster, but I doubt this capacity as being real, given the small size of "the cube". The limited heaters power, 1600W only, is another factor that place this machine in the 1-2 pounds class, rather than +1 kg.
Also, no details about a heat profile, chaff management. no visible exhaust for smoke.
No wonder about all missing, because it's not a specialized coffee roaster, but a generic seeds oven.
Even so, it looks very promising as a development platform for anyone interested in a drum roaster, but not having the tools, skills and desired for tinkering.
You get a lot for this amount: mechanics - drum with interesting looking vanes, heaters, sensors, a temperature control system, and free shipping !... very little to add to have a fully featured 1 kg roaster for a lot under $1000.

From what I can see it’s multi purpose nut roaster

Independent precise heat control to 250 Celsius is optional
And yes you are correct
1) where does the chaff go
2) Coffee Oils can destroy many electronics if not managed
