The Roastery

The next step in expand­ing our enjoy­ment of cof­fee is to roast our own green beans. We invest­ed in the Ail­lio Bul­let R1 roast­er and allo­cat­ed a cor­ner of the laun­dry room for our roast­ery. Roast­ing cof­fee pro­duces some smoke so this neces­si­tat­ed installing a hood and duct­ing with a remote exhaust blow­er. It’s com­pact but it works great, in spite of requir­ing a lit­tle bit of engi­neer­ing to make every­thing work effectively.

The Bul­let roast­er is con­trolled by either or both a lap­top or man­u­al­ly through the con­trol pan­el on the front of the machine. The roast­er (machine) is very capa­ble with great con­trol over the process. The roast­er (Me) is doing a great deal of learn­ing about the fas­ci­nat­ing process of select­ing cof­fees from around the world and roast­ing them to per­fec­tion. It’s a whole new world enjoyed by a sig­nif­i­cant com­mu­ni­ty engaged in the process. I hope to share what I learn as I make the jour­ney on this site.

We have discovered REAL COFFEE and hope to share our experiences with other coffee lovers in the section of our website.

By “real cof­fee” we mean cof­fee made from fresh­ly roast­ed beans, sourced from spe­cif­ic loca­tions, and either a sin­gle-sourced or blend from curat­ed sources brewed prop­er­ly. These cof­fees can be con­sumed as an espres­so, Amer­i­cano,  just a cup of brew, or a spe­cial­ty drink such as cappuccino.
