Why are we not talking about this?

Recommended Posts

I subscribed on the Fogo website for the coupons and discounts the other day and yesterday or the day before they sent me a email about what to grill and such with their charcoal.  One of the topics was roasting coffee with a big green egg, my immediate thought was how much better would be coffee roasted on my KK! Seriously why is this not happening on the forum? Or is there a super secret section I will get access to when I become a “advanced member?”

A few people sell these on line but I think I am going to just make one out of scrap stainless from work.

Ok back to my coffee and bread making. I hope everyone is being safe and enjoying their weekend!!!

It might be fun to play with but I'd suspect if you seriously want to roast coffee beans the best way would be a dedicated bean roaster. I just don't see how one would get the control over the beans from the KK.

Even if you used cocochar that has very little smoke flavor, you're going to end up with a definite smoky flavored coffee - but, if that's what you're looking for, go for it!

I don't make wine. I've had homebrewed beer that was better than bought, but they took over a garage with $10k of gear, and got too busy. I make fermented hot sauce, because it's better than I can buy.

We freeze skinned, salted, and partially dried garden tomatoes, and make Sicilian estrattu from Santa Cruz dry-farmed Early Girl tomatoes, because they taste better than any bought or home canned tomatoes, period.

I've tried roasting coffee beans. The ideal process involves equipment I don't have room for, that costs more than I make in a year: Graffeo Coffee - Our Process. As I've gotten older, I equate lesser home efforts with praising Johnny's Kindergarten art, if one can simply buy better.

We nevertheless have open minds. Tell us it's better than anything you can buy, in a double-blind tasting?
