The Roasting Room

I roasted some coffee this weekend. Can’t remember the last time I did this. It’s so enjoyable and it only took an hour to knock out four different roasts.

Here’s a video of my setup. I use the inner stairwell of the building I live in as it’s protected from the wind and allows for good ventilation. I roast on the stairway and then head out to the roof to remove the chaff from the beans and cool them down. My neighbors are very tolerant of this, thankfully.
