OK, OK, please be nice. It's a crazy question, I know.

So, has anyone ever tried roasting peanuts in their coffee roaster??? :-D

Ok, I'll be nice. Yes you can but I would'nt. Think about people with allergic reactions to nuts. You would never be able to roast coffee in your roaster after that.

If that doesn't stop you dead in your tracks, think about the nice peanut flavor from the oils your coffee would have.

Have a nice day!

yes you can

Yes you can roast peanuts but the drum is really to fast and the roaster has more heat then is needed.

You might watch need to run a couple loads of cheap beans to
remove the nut stuff, but many people did it for a lots of years.
The Royal number 5 roaster was sold for Nuts and Coffee!

The Stirring cooler will be rough on them too.

Hey, thanks for indulging a "nutty" question :roll: . Down here in So. Georgia, we have some folks who take their peanuts very seriously!
