stove-top coffee roasting

coffee roaster at workLast July I put up a detailed post describing my home coffee roasting process. I am still roasting the same way and won’t repeat that post here. Go there if you want to know step-by-step how to purchase green coffee beans and turn them into wonderful, fresh coffee to suit your own tastes.

What I am adding with this post is a link to my Vimeo channel where I published a short video clip of the process.

Vimeo is kind-of a liberated YouTube; minus the agenda, censors and big brother aspects. It has the free version that I am currently using and several upgrade levels. I do not appear to have the ability to embed a clip and play the video here on my webpage. I can only link to it and send you away. I suspect the only way to include the videos here is to pay the toll.

That is not a bad idea. I just have to up its priority. It is important to remember that, in the immortal words of Heinlein, “There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch” … TANSTAAFL.

In this case,
Either you pay for the product,
or you are the product.

I am pretty sure I want to walk away from YouTube, and support Vimeo.
I just gotta chew on it a bit first.
