Ever wanted to roast up fresh coffee from green beans? In small batches?
Currently on the NESIT work table is a small batch coffee roaster. It’s a conversion job created from a donor popcorn popper, two thermocouples, a solid state 120v/20A switch, and an ATMega168 board. Later the popper may receive an ARM system, such as the OrangePi or Raspberry Pi, to run artisan – the coffee roasting scope. Think an osilloscope for coffee with temperature and timing software and you’ve got the idea.
Stop by to check out the progress and say hello!
SARA, the Southington Amateur Radio Association, held their annual fundraiser flea market at the Southington High School again this year and NESIT was there. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello and inquire after the Makerspace. Stop on down during an open house night and visit!

While you’re there why not spool up a job on the Deltamaker if it’s not in use? It’s almost mesmerizing to watch!

Here’s a video of our DIY table CNC at work routing out a board. You may want to turn your volume down before hitting play as it’s fairly loud.
