It's definitely a combination of things. The edge that professional roasting equipment provides is mostly in giving you the ability to easily replicate results once you achieve something you like. Depending on how high tech the roaster is you have a lot more info about whats happening inside the machine than most home roasters dream of. I have an older machine(that I am hoping to replace soonish) and that gives me the temp in the drum, time layout, oxygen levels, and lets me regulate the valve which controls temp in real time. The one i am looking at getting has three thermocuples that read in real time, the amount of off gassing with the bean, the moisture content, and alerts on first/second crack, plus all the other stuff I mentioned. Roasting is a crazy mash up of science and art. I still think the best coffee I have ever had was hand roasted in an open heat source mesh drum. It was probably a little bit of a placebo though as it was just a kind of special experience at the time.
Glad you like it, and received the stuff safely!Thanks SpyderPhreak! I could not be happier with secret Santa. I can’t wait to try out your home roast selection. Super excited about tomorrow morning now. The Manix 2 is awesome and even has the fancy maxamet steel. Everything thing is awesome and thoughtful, thanks again! View attachment 1252577
We had several amazon packages as usual so I did not hurry to open those. I have been wanting to try the clever coffee dripper And it has been in my amazon cart a few times. ThanksDang, lots of Spyders in this year's swap!

However, there should have been a box for you from Amazon too... Look in the garage (?), or wherever the "preferred safe place" that Amazon delivers to at that address. I can send a photo of the delivery if you don't find it. Please let me know!
