Friday Maintenance Day

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!


  1. you got your work cut out for you!

  2. Wait till next week, what could possible happen?

  3. Ooh, coffee roasting!
    I can't make coffee for the life of me.

  4. I hope you managed to fit it all in!
