Life’s too short to drink cheap coffee. A better coffee bean might make one be more careful which might prove to be cheaper in the long run. After how will you know what profiles you’ll want to use in the future when you’re drinking second rate coffee?

 I've nearly completed my planning to take the plunge and put together a
drum roaster. Thanks to the generosity of this list, I'm the proud owner of
a 5 lb RK drum, and have started pulling together the last few pieces to
put it into service.

What advice can you guys offer for transitioning from a whirly pop to a
drum roaster of significant capacity?  I know a batch will take about twice
as long, but do you have any tips that will make my learning curve a bit
shallower? (I'm going to get a good pair of welding gloves, so hopefully I
won't burn myself wrestling with a 400 degree drum full of coffee).

Also, anyone have a good lead on some cheap beans?  I want to do a couple
batches that I don't care about as my first tries. Something I can use to
get a feel for the grill, and how this is going to go, before I do
something I regret to beans I like?

Drinking a city roasted Ethiopian right now. Couldn't be much happier with
how it turned out.

Thanks,

John

John,

Tom used to sell lousy beans very cheaply expressly for such things as
testing a roaster. I looked just now and couldn't find them. I don't know
if I was looking in the wrong places or if he discontinued the practice.
