announce: September DC206 Meeting: Home Coffee Roasting with Josh Armour

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:20 by admin

Update with slides from Josh and A/V from Colby:


Here are the three videos of the three different roasting devices:
* Drum Roasting w/a Huky –

* Drum Roasting –

* Fluid Bed Roasting –

We also recorded the talk itself. The audio drops really low at around the 8:15 mark but if you try hard enough you can hear him still:


What: September DC206 Meeting: Home Coffee Roasting

When: September 17th (3rd Sundays), 1-4pm

Who: Josh Armour

Where: Black Lodge Research
17725 NE 65th St, A-155; Evans Business Park, Bldg A; Redmond, WA 98052

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 🙂
