Is the Bullet suitable for Cocoa beans roasting? Anyone using it for this purpose?
I am just assuming stuff here so I may be wrong but that sure sounds like an excellent way to void a warranty
why should it void warranty
The instruction manual explicitly states that the Bullet should not be used for other than its intended purpose.
I would imagine that whether Aillio would honor the warranty or not for a machine used to roast things other than coffee beans would be entirely up to them.
Having said that, it appears Aillio is by and large run by benevolent sorts so…[shrug].
I’ve been waiting for a blog post from Sweet Maria’s on this topic. I’m still interested to hear anyone else’s experiences with or even just educated thoughts on roasting cacao into cocoa on the bullet.
I’m much less interested in the warrantee itself than in how cocoa might cause problems or require different preventative maintenance.
Only issue I’ve heard (either it was here or over on home-barista) that the height of the bean probe inside the drum is fine for coffee, but cocoa seeds can wedge themselves between the probe and the drum wall.
