Air Popcorn Popper Roast Profiles

My sentiments exactly. Even fluid bed roasters are often different enough to preclude direct application of roasting profiles and expierences. Even among poppers, there is a large varation of designs especially with regard to heat source design and placement as well as motor size and power. There is substantial design and power difference just between the West

Display Digital Tamper

As a retired electronics engineer: WAY, WAY COOL. As a practical espressionista: WAY OVERKILL. Level and consistent are teachable in about 5 minutes. {image}

Air Popcorn Popper Roast Profiles

What model popper do you have? I have a West Bend Poppery I which has been modified with the seperation of heat and fan switch.

Decent vs La Marzocco Linea Micra (or Mini)

Black and White Classic help

I'm pulling the Classic now, roasted 11/14 and kept in an Airscape as I finished up another bag. I definitely notice B&W beans like a good bit of time post roast to get the best pulls and flavor. Using a BDB and DF64 with v1 Lab Sweets, prep is WDT, Force Tamp, & Flair 58.5 puck screen. I'm just

[FS] Baratza Virtuoso + $150

Up for sale is my Baratza Virtuoso+ It was used for my wife's drip coffee for about 6 months. In that time it probably had 18 lbs of coffee through it. It is in excellent physical and working order. Just trying to find a good home for this. I prefer local pickup, I live in a rural area though
