Hello!
I am interested in starting to roast some coffee at home, for now as a hobby/learning experience ( I am currently working as a barista and am very interested in getting deeper into the specialty coffee industry), and I have my eyes on the Hive roaster with the data dome after looking online as I feel like this can be a flexible learning tool for the price.
After doing some research on how to connect it to a computer and to artisan, it seems like the classic method is Phidget. only problem is, that with shipping to my country Israel its gonna cost me more than the roaster itself.
Does anyone have a cheap method to connect a thermocouple to a laptop running artisan? The roaster comes with a thermocouple, so just need something to read and connect to usb.
Thank you in advance :)
