Coffee roasting on site : LUSENET : Coffee Related Buy/Sell/Trade : One Thread

Any one had any experience with on-site coffee roasting at fairs, shows, events, etc. I am interested in trying it and want to know if anyone has any experience.

You probably won't want to. Assuming that you mean roasting coffee to serve at that location, most people recommend that you wait at least a day after roasting to serve the coffee. The coffee breathes out CO2 in its first few hours after roasting (enough that if you immediately seal it in a jar, it will shatter the jar) and its taste changes in those first few hours. Info on that can be had at usenet group and, among other places.

We actually setup at a large flea market. We roasted and bagged the beans for sale. We sold about 100 pounds.

Good luck.

I offer machines for rosting coffee at place.
