    I add about an eyedropper full of high quality vanilla extract to 12oz of simple syrup. The alcohol fades quickly and you certainly can't taste it in a big fat latte.

    Just curious, if you had a MCR 1kg, why did you not consider their 10kg? It's a superior machine at a very good price, if you don't mind manual roasting. Personally, all automated roasters, including...

    I had a deposit on a Roest, but I gave up my place in line and purchased a Cormorant to try and make into a sample roaster. That experiment crashed and burned today and I have my Cormorant up for...

    I just picked up a 5kg drum roaster and from what I gather, about 20% of capacity is the minimum for drum machines. So 3kg for a Ambex 15 would be a place to start.

    But I hear roasting partial...

    Actually, it's espresso mixed with water, ideally to the same strength as drip coffee. The difference is, since it's made with espresso, there is a greater % of non-dissolved solids and oils in the...

    There were some driver changes recently so it might depend on which thermometer you're using.

    This is an 1990's Diedrich IR-7n. I emailed Diedrich. They do not have a record of this serial number. It might be a...

    I roast about 100# a week on a 5# roaster in my garage. The houses are on 1 acre lots and everyone downwind knows when I'm roasting. But I don't roast too dark and the smell is wonderful. It's like...

    Royal NY near me just installed a S15 Falcon. Attended a Colombia Microlot cupping there recently and got to see it up close. It is truly a thing of beauty. I think they said it was between $75 and...

    I'd love to hear what you've decided upon. I need to increase my capacity and am looking for a 5kg roaster. I like the air roasting taste profile, and am looking at hybrid drum/convection roasters....

    You can walk away for a minute, not 3. I print labels and bag coffee while roasting. It's a bit of a juggling act, but it's doable. A helper comes in handy.

    I've been using one for 4 years. I moved from farmers markets to my own coffee bar and roasting about 100# a week for the bar only.
