Sample roasting can be done using an old breadmaker and using a hot air gun. I often did this for home coffee in small batches and connected the computer to get a roast profile for the 15 kilo machine.

You can carry a bag of green beans with you on the boat. Keep dry and will last years.

When you get to a marina....... fire it up on the side and roast coffee enough for the next trip.

Here is the principle.... heatgun is 1-2kw power--breadmaker is just a rotor. You can do this in a stainless steel bowl and keep stirring. Takes 15 mins in total with pre heating.

I wonder if a green coffee to cup machine maybe the ultimate coffee machine?

Put it on a timer synchronised with the bread maker machine. The smell of baking bread and roasting coffee would be a divine way to get up in the morning.

Cool machine, but of course a power hog, we only used it when living aboard and on shore power.

It could be programmed as well...the grinder whirring up early in the AM made a nice alarm clock.
Second this. I pretty much buy all of my gadgets after finding them on whicksguide.com.

Lately I have been into ice coffee so I make a huge batch of coffee, put it in the fridge and it lasts me a month.

I started making chilled coffee last year. I would make a French press of coffee and put it in the fridge for the next AM. Quite nice in the Tropics where warm beverages are not that appealing.

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

Making coffee with a French press is mostly done the wrong way. The best way to get smooth coffee is to put the water in first. Coffee on top then press down. Coffee is infused through the water. You have to use more coffee but the result. is much better. Give it a go.

lol- no

Green coffee roasting does not smell like roasted coffee. It also requires a couple of days to degass and mature. It would be a long wait for the cup of Joe.

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

Not to hijack the thread, but I did a search for grinder recommendations and I can't find any. Can anyone point me to a thread?

Thanks,
Dennis

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

I use a stove top Italian made stainless espresso pot, very easy to clean up and use, I often use the double sized one with fresh ground beans and add equal amount of boiling water for the big morning cuppa........... the only one I need every day to get going............. all you need is a stove, ground coffee and water............ at home I use an electric lever La Pavoni

Dont think there is a thread here, but search on Amazon or the like for "burr grinders". We have an old manual one aboard...part the morning coffee ritual. Also have a cheapo blade grinder for when we want to grind more volume.
