Whirling beans in the North Bay

... by any reasonable standard, but I'm a whole lot better. I'm roasting with a Whirly Pop -- OK, not a Whirly Pop, a Great Northern stainless steel stovetop popcorn popper that I have modified in two ways: Blue loctite on the screw that anchors the stirring vanes, so I can crank backwards, which ...

Re: New Gene Cafe user

Not venting anyway special, just left the unit as is sitting on my stovetop. Haven't checked voltage but the house is old wiring and I think it might not be as high as is really needed. I have a meter I can hook inline next roast but wasn't sure if that would ...

Re: Stovetop roasting - is it really a good idea???

Hi all, I'm a complete newbie here so take my experience for what it's worth. I started pan roasting about 3 weeks ago and have already gone through about 5 lbs of coffee in small batches. As is my customary fashion, I made a hash of several batches before figuring things out and am now getting reli...

I'd really like some current (not ebay) recommendations, and it seems all of the recommended models are no longer being sold. I'm currently roasting stovetop and am having the usual consistency issues, so i want to move on.

Re: Stovetop roasting - is it really a good idea???

i think that I discovered that in order to obtain a close to even roast in a wok and I assume a pan, it is important to be patient and watch the development slowly. Start at a low temp to yellow the beans and gradually increase the heat. It may take 25-30 minutes to get to second crack, but that see...

Re: Stovetop roasting - is it really a good idea???

Wow I didn't know this thread existed. A lot of good discussion. I agree that it's really cool to engage all of your senses and have such a clear view of roast development while pan roasting. I recently scaled down from my 2qt. saucepan to a much smaller 16-20oz. saucepan. I also went back to roasti...

Re: Stovetop roasting - is it really a good idea???

I think that I may have figured it out. I begin roasting in my wok at low heat while constantly stirring, and then gradually increase the heat as I try to bring all of the beans to the same roast level together; ie. get them all to yellowing,tan, then first crack, then second crack.

Re: Stove Top Wok/Pan Roasting

I used a "Stir Crazy" popcorn popper I bought at Goodwill ($5) that would get me to a light, even roast. I would then transfer it to the stovetop to finish them to the desired roast. Still not perfect mind you but every batch was tasty.
