I have for some time been toying with the idea of buying a small roaster (1-2 kg capacity) together with other enthusiasts. Buying a share in the roaster would give a person access to using it and to buy green beans from a small stock.

Wouldn't that be pretty cool ? We would learn how to use and service a gas powered roaster and get fresh roasted coffee. I think it would be a great way to get to know each other better too.

So what would we need :

- a small roaster, gas powered (for example a turkish "Has Garanti" roaster that stavanger kaffebrenneri imports)

- some place to use it where there is sufficient ventilation and little chance of annoying neighbours with the smoke and odour

- I guess at least 10 coffeegeeks to get the share price down to something tolerable, and I guess this is the big challenge

Meanwhile I'll continue roasting with my poppers. I have 3 kg ottolina classica on the way. The last classic batch was the best home roasted classica yet. Don't you agree Anders?

I'll definitely look into buying a Hearthware I-Roast or a Hottop if a dealer can be found here in Scandinavia.
