Roasting / Prima popper - modified
« on: July 11, 2014, 10:40:53 AM »
Hello everyone,
Thought I would post a link to the details of what I did to my Popper.

After being let down by a supplier, I realised that the only way to get consistent quality, and taste that suits me, was to roast my own.
The usual story of what turned into months of research, sourcing parts, stripping the popper, assembly, etc etc.
Burning out the 1amp PSU feeding the fan set me back whilst I searched for a more manly one, that turned out to be from a Laptop.

Did a couple of roasts on the stove, but electric hobs absolutely useless for heat control!
Then remembered I had a portable gas ring, and that was so much better.

I've now done seven roasts using the Prima, using six different kind of beans, and what a revelation it has been
Pun intended :-)
I use 100g green per roast, as any more would need a much higher fan speed, and I don't want to burn it out. That would really make my day.

I now decide on what I want!

Danny, you have produced a must-have App for us roasters.

Geoff - Experimenting every time I roast now.
