Gourmet Coffee Making: Home Coffee Roasting Equipment
Coffee roasters, coffee grinders, Chemex coffee makers, and related
home coffee roasting appliances are important compliments to producing
truly gourmet coffee from green coffee beans. At BurmanCoffee.com
these are carefully selected for the Home Coffee Roaster.
Before we offer a roaster for sale, we will have used it for many
months, sometimes years. We roast several times a day here, and
use the all the roasters we sell. All our coffees are evaluated
to make sure they roast well on all the roasters.
If you have never tried a Chemex coffee maker/ Aeropress before, you will
be surprised to discover how easy and inexpensive brewing with
a Chemex/Aeropress is. They are reasonably priced, make excellent coffee, and
take little maintenance (other than a regular rinsing, or occasional
washing in the top rack of a dishwasher).
Most people are familiar with the conventional home coffee grinders
available from department and discount stores. For commercial
coffee beans they do an adequate job. Yet the blender-style blades
and design of these machines is unsuitable for grinding fine quality
gourmet coffee beans. The grind is too inconsistent. Home
Coffee Roasters need an adjustable coffee mill that produces a
reliable grind from coarse to fine.
If you are new to Home Coffee Roasting, you need to be aware that all roasters put out some smoke . A stovetop vent or Jennair generally work well to exhaust the smoke and odor.
The larger the batch of coffee you roast, and the darker you roast, proportionately more smoke will result. So if you are a dark roast fan or if you roast large batches in an Alpenrost, you especially want to insure adequate ventilation (or else roast in the garage or on the deck).
While the equipment warranties are all 1 year and are from the
manufacturer, if you are having problems, be sure and let us know,
we will help!
