This setup on my wood fired pellet grill is cranking out great coffee. Had to work to get temps right but now it is perfect with 2.5 to 3lbs in 4lb drum ( first crack usually around 10 minutes and I dump a little heat to extend/slow down and pull before second). A fantastic balance of fruity and chocolate notes without bitterness.

Good and bad is that people can’t get enough (did another 30lbs in 12 2.5lb batches last night).

So I need to increase drum size and capacity but don’t think I can fit the 24″ in the current setup that I’ve gotten running well. Can you build a 10″ x 18″ for me so I can maximize the space and minimize my fuel cost per lb?

Let me know if a 10″ x 18″ is possible. Great drum. Seriously makes incredible coffee. Thanks!!

Shane,

I know you may not remember me, you are a busy guy! I bought a 10lb drum from you about 3 years ago. Just wanted you to know it is still crushing it. I sold my coffee roasting company about a year ago when I moved from Cali to NY, and the gentleman who bought it from me BLEW it up. He is now in almost every grocery store, restaurant and boutique in the city. He is a full time roaster, and he is still using the same drum and cooler you sold me! He has pushed THOUSANDS of lbs through it and it is still as beastly and awesome as the first day I got it in the mail… all be it perfectly seasoned now:) He renamed it Scout coffee, it is located in Redding, CA. He has a website and everything.

Hi Shane,

I received the cooler today.  I also did a 1lb test roast to make sure everything was working.  Took 15 minutes for onset of second crack and which point I stopped it.  Slightly lighter then I expected but I’m learning how the system performs.  This is so much easier and faster then using my stove top whirly-popcorn pot.

Thanks,
Cary
