The Contented Squirrel Trading Company

Home coffee roasting advocate and purveyor of high quality green unroasted coffee beans from all around the world. As an avid home coffee roaster, I like to try beans from all the different coffee growing regions that I can.

I buy my beans from one of the top specialty coffee importers in the country and I have to buy them in full bags (130-150 LBS). Since I only roast about 1 pound of beans per week for myself, I sell the rest to fellow home coffee roasters and those who would like to try it. I sell locally via "will call" and nationally via Ebay and Square. Check out my current products and prices at https://squareu

The Contented Squirrel Trading Company is currently on hiatus. I'm still roasting my own coffee, so if you'd like to chat about that, I'm always available. Also, if you have some beans you'd like to trade, maybe we can work something out.😃

Finished up my latest home coffee roasting rig and so far it is working great. My goal was to be able to roast 1 lb with electric heat (so I can use it indoors). It is a drum style roaster with four 500 Watt halogen bulbs as the heating source. Each bulb is controlled by a dimmer switch. The drum is turned by a 50 RPM motor. I have a thermometer probe running into the middle of the drum for fairly accurate temperature readings. I've gotten it up to 425 degrees. The whole process of roasting a pound takes about 15 minutes (including cool down time). The cooling is handled by a small leaf blower that has a flexible 4" hose attached to it. I clean the chaff out of the bottom with a vacuum...or there is a pull out tray that you can remove.

Working on a new roaster...it's a drum roaster, built inside a small grill unit...it's powered by three 500 watt halogen bulbs...and a 50 RPM makermotor. I did a test roast and it turned out pretty nice (tasted good too)...1/4 lb in about 9 minutes to (close to) second crack. It's the ultimate "easy bake oven"! I still have to finish it out with motor and light switch housings...as well as a built in chiller and vent system.
