We recently noticed that our roast times on our electric coffee roaster took at turn for the worse. Initially we thought is was due to the cool weather but it looks like we're going to need a new heating element.
Let's see how much this costs...
The thing is the elements look just like immersion heater elements. Thinking it might be worth a trip to local electrical store and bend some into shape.
So in the meantime we're down roasting in smaller batches!
Lesson learned - make sure you have the spares to hand just in case stuff goes wrong
UPDATE - spares on their way. Problem fixed. We have an older version of the roaster which basically means the parts are more expensive!
