Hi Guys, I am a product design student looking to design a domestic coffee roaster. I’ve gained a lot of insight from my initial research however it is still new territory to me. I am a coffee enthusiast myself, however have only ever tried roasting beans in a skillet at home. I am aiming at designing and prototyping a home roaster which would look to roast enough beans for around 20 – 40 cups of coffee. The techniques of roasting (ie fluid bed or drum) and cooling will depend upon my research and any feedback that I receive. The key issue I would like your help in understanding is why there seems to be no market leading commercially manufactured roaster at present? Why might the current ones not be sufficient? And why do so many seem to prefer building their own? With this in mind I would very much appreciate any experience or advice from avid home roasters such as yourselves. Thank you Joe
Why is it that with one bean type Roastery 1 One roast type for filter Another roast type for espresso Roastery 2 One roast (sometimes listing preferable usage i.e. filter, pro etc etc) I can see reasoning behind roastery 1 as they could say we are roasting a bean so it is roasted in the best way to suit the consumer brew method. I can see reasoning behind roaster 2 as they will say we are roasting to get the best of the bean regardless of consumer brew method. I will leave it at that as sometimes I use to many words and confuse myself but what are peoples thoughts on it?
