In this talk I demonstrate the use of two home roasters – a drum roaster and a fluid bed roaster. I’ll cover the stages of coffee development, roast a couple samples, and give attendees a chance to try roasting. Everyone will leave with some freshly roasted beans, an understanding of what the different roast levels mean, and a shopping list of how to get started themselves. I’ll wrap up with some discussion around DIY/modification roasters available online.

Josh Armour is a security/privacy engineer at a large global search/advertising company. But in his spare time he enjoys roasting coffee, taking digital photos, and spending time with wife+offspring 🙂

Note, BBQ/Movie Nights startd at 3PM, NOT 1PM, like the other DC206 Meetings. Movie starts when dark enough, until end-of-movie.

The lodge is a bit of a mess. Perhaps some of you could join me at the lodge around 2pm for a brief cleaning party? Similarly, hopefully some of you can stay after movie and help clean up lodge from BBQ mess.

Who is bringing what:

Mike:
I’m bringing a veggie tray and a fruit tray.

Blibbet:
I’ll be providing hard-cider, water, and some other non-alcoholic beverages, and 4 ice-filled chests, like last year, space for others food/beverages in 2 chests. Unlike last year, [‘bitch’-]beer drinkers will have to BYO[B]B.

Noid:
I’m bringing burgers (and a pack of veggie burgers). I’ll also bring onions, lettuce, cheese, and bacon for said burgers. Yes you can put bacon on your veggie burger (we won’t tell)

When I get to the Lodge in the morning I’ll check to see if we’re still good on things like ketchup, mustard, and pickles. I’ll also check the chip situation. Last time we had soooo many tortilla chips left over

EVERYONE ELSE: Please consider bringing some good beer, and/or some side-dish, some other BBQ-able meats, some vegan options, some deserts.
Bring a camp chair to watch the movie, bring a hat and some sunblock.
