It's Friday, which usually means it's clean-the-crap-out-of-the-roaster day. Maintenance is always a fun way to keep track of just how much coffee I've been roasting. The thickness of gunk built up on the chaff collector fan blades, for instance, tell me a good tale.
A typical Mon-Thu
However, today I've got a good half dozen roasts or more to get finished. This probably means I won't get to maintenance because the roaster will stay hot for most of the day, which then means I have to fit maintenance into either my weekend or the beginning of next week. Oh the joys of roasting coffee! Happy Friday everyone!
