Hello Coffee Lovers,
I’ve been complaining about capacity for the past few years. We used to roast with the fantastic Behmor 1600+ Coffee Roaster, two of them. They are great but lack in capacity. Doing roughly 1.5lbs each every 45 minutes.
To give you an idea, for a medium convention we’d roast 40-60 lbs of coffee. that would take us roughly 16-20 hours of roasting. It was getting to be too much work. Taking 4 days or more to roast for a large convention like Ottawa Comiccon was tedious.
I looked into all kinds of options and discovered RK Drums. They custom-build roaster drums, turning motors, and a whole lot of other awesome stuff. We took the plunge with last years profits and two weekends ago I spent a long day building a bbq and modifying it for coffee roasting with equipment from RK Drums.
Isn’t it pretty?
The first roast came out a little burnt and smoky, but this past weekend I spent 5 hours roasting and I’m confident the coffee will be up to our high standards.
This coming weekend at Geek Market we are debuting the newest JenEric Coffee flavour:
The Mighty ThOrange
Yay for coffee!
Hope to see you this weekend at Geek Market.
