I got around to roasting some coffee this afternoon. There is a 1/2 pound of each ready. Look for the canisters on the counter near the coffee station. I love the smell of roasting coffee. It's somewhere between baking bread and popping popcorn.

I lay down for a little nap. I had to shake a headache that was looming. Not enough water or too much coffee? W/E, same result.

Anyone else hanging out on a Friday night?

I've noticed some of you walking through the kitchen wondering about one of the appliances perched on top of the cabinets. Someone started the rumor that it is an alien artifact dropped by a UFO. It is not a ray-gun or a hyper-drive and it doesn't make crop circles.

It's our coffee roaster. The off-axis drum keeps the beans moving as it rotates. Convection heating and easy to use digital controls to adjust time and temp. Double size chaff collecter is vent ready. This model is rated for commercial use and has a 1/2 pound capacity. Safety sensors will shut down the unit to prevent fires.

Please remember to hook up the vent hose (look for the "T") on the range hood or carry outside to use. Roasting coffee generates smoke.

Cool. A manual espresso maker. You actually have to "pull" the shot.
