Hi! New member starting with SR540. I am brand new and slowly getting better results with this roaster. I am interested in any roasting pointers.

Cleaning an oily, stained popper drum
psciabb
Hi All,

I've been using a Poppery II to roast beans for about 2 years. The quality has started to suffer and I think it's due to a build-up of oils on the drum. Does anyone know how to remove the gunk from the drum? Or is it the end of the popper's usefulness as a roaster?

Thanks!

I am cleaning these deposits inside my roaster using a dishwash paste called Axion, can be found on Amazon US too:

https://www.amazo...axion+soap

Cleaning is instant, apply the thinnest layer you can, let it work 2 minutes, then remove with an abrasive cloth/sponge.

Please be aware that my machine is from stainless steel and glass, I have no idea how the aluminium of most popper roast chamber reacts to this cleaning paste. I emphasize this because I seen aluminium moka pots ruined by dish washing solvents !

It's worth trying even if the aluminum is affected badly because, in it's current state, the coffee produced is undrinkable.

Thank you renatoa!

I would try first on the outer surface of the roast chamber.
If strange things appear, you still have the choice of a mechanical cleaning, with a rotating wire brush.
