Educational Short: Drum Speed Bingo

Posted by on

We get asked all of the time what the appropriate drum speed is for a roast. In this Educational Short, we illustrate how drum speed could be too fast or too slow and why. Clearly the "correct" drum speed will vary according to drum size and batch size. This is an overview to help conceptualize what is happening inside of the drum as you troubleshoot toward your best drum speed. Drum speed management is not a shtick or a superfluous control. It allows you to set the parameters of your roasting environment precisely to the requirements to nail roasts of different batch sizes. Music: "Osaka" by Birocratic
