Computer-Controlled Home Coffee Roaster is Overkill
We've been roasting our own coffee here at Single Serve Coffee over the summer months (more on that next week), and can tell you - it's nice to have a device but total computer control? Overkill. Okay, perhaps for the super serious roaster at home, but for most of us the feel of how the roast is going and controlling the roasting profile manually is part of the fun.
Here's how it works:
A fan inside the roaster controls the roasting process. The roasting chamber itself uses two tubes, one made of bakelite and the other a 3-inch diameter glass tube. To prevent damaging the setup and to allow for heat dissipation, this amazing Computer-Controlled Coffee Roaster uses a high temperature RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanizing) Silicone. A screen at the bottom of the device can be used to empty the roaster and get freshly roasted beans at any time.
We can see the reasons for going this route, but don't do this inside at home or prepare for smoke, noise, and other problems. Click on through for more details on this insane home roasting setup. And yes, even as we've written this article we realize that basically we want the above, and long for more control of our roasting process.
