We just added Hawaii Kainaliu Kona Maragogype to our offerings page. We have limited it to 1 pound bags so more people can have a chance to try it. It’s a very fruited cup with apricot/peach in lighter roasts and cocoa/vanilla in darker roasts.
Also…Behmor 1600 roasters are back in stock and ready to ship. Behmor has been busy keeping up with orders and working on the release of their new brewer so we are happy to get our shipment in.
If you got a chance to see our demo at the Bay Area Maker Faire this past weekend, we would like to thank you for coming out and hope we were able to give you some good coffee roasting info. This was our first attempt at doing a multiple roaster demo. Having a Behmor, Quest, Air Crazy and Whirley Pop all run at the same time is pretty much asking for trouble…and trouble did find us. Common sense would tell us that four appliances producing tons of heat would be too much for an electrical circuit to handle, so we were prepared to show the crowd that coffee roasting does come with it’s obstacles, like the Quest quitting on us halfway through it’s roast. Down one roaster, were able to show everyone some decent results from the popcorn poppers and Behmor. Hopefully we will be able to do more events like this. It’s lots of fun being able to meet everyone and share the love of home roasting.
Here’s our attempt at squeezing a 30 minute demo into a 10 minute video.
It’s that time of year again. If you plan on attending this year’s Bay Area Maker Faire on May 19th, come check out our live coffee roasting presentation at the Maker Square stage. We won’t have a booth this year so this will be the only chance for you to see us live at the Maker Faire. If this will be your first time coming to the Maker Faire, prepare for exhibits (aside from our roasting demo) that will keep you entertained all day. Expect craziness like man-made lightning, fire breathing robots, prototype musical instruments, steam punks, geeks, DIY’ers, techies, etc…and it’s all family-friendly
We are pretty excited about the Behmor roasters being back in stock. It’s been a while since Behmor has been able to export them, so in observance of their arrival, we did a live webcast focusing on how to take apart these trusty machines for deep cleaning. A while back (when Josh’s hair was short and his beard was not-existent) we shot this video with some basics on how to use it. These videos are great for Behmor-beginners and experts alike.
