If your entering there will be a contest for second place. When does
your roaster enter mass production? Ron Kyle is a great supporter of
these types of contests, a really rare class act.

Just so there's no confusion, the PRIZE for winning first place is an RK drum
and motor. Ron cannot enter his unit, since commercial roasting equipment is
not eligible, only homebuilt roasters are.

No winners have been chosen yet. There are 5 days left!

I'd think that someone with enough creativity and ability to build a winning
roaster would also appreciate another wonderful way to roast coffee. I have
probably a dozen or more roasting devices I've bought or built that I still
use from time to time. Heck, I build my own drums but I wouldn't mind
having a RK setup too.
Ya can't have too many ways to roast coffee! LOL

Hey, Homeroasters.org is doing the best we can with what we have. It's not like
we are funded by a foundation grant! Most of the prizes are coming from the
admins pocket's. Ron was gracious enough to offer his roaster as a prize. Since
it has the highest cash value it became first prize. Now if you would like to
donate something, say, $500 we'll be pleased to offer the first place winner
something else. PayPal is acceptable. Dan

My apologies Dan, no offence intended. It is just a little ironic. And you
are right very gracious of Ron to come to the party. Just if I built up a
roaster that i was quite proud of and it was good enough to win i don't know
that a prize of another roaster would be of interest to me. (am just digging
a bigger hole for myself here).
Now 100lbs of Tom's best offerings. But Ron came to the party Tom didn't.

And a few of the prizes do involve green coffee.
I'm putting up five pounds of Colombian 'La Estrella' Rainforest for the
contest myself.
