Default My new coffee tools

I have been having fun with coffee-making this past week as I bought a new drip coffee machine (one from the Netherlands that is guaranteed to brew at 200 °F, and seems to do it, based on taste).

And I have a new coffee roaster. We are just getting used to each other. First roast aborted with only semi-roasted beans. Second one looked like Charbucks beans. I think later today I will try again.

It is a drum roaster, like my last (the Alpenrost), but the new one (Gene Café, from Korea) has a glass drum so one can watch the roast. It also has temp and time controls that can be adjusted as the roast progresses (enables me to control the roasting profile, or should, once I get it all doped out). And it has a very effective chaff catcher. My good old Alp had none of those features.

I bought both machines at the same time because both will change the taste of coffee and I figured I would get used to all of it at once. We shall see how it plays out in reality.
