Six Month Cleaning
Armed with scrapers, screwdrivers and rubber gloves Chris, Chad, Crow, April and I began our six month deep cleaning of the roaster. Deep cleaning the roaster requires patience, muscle power and being ok with getting really, really dirty. This photo gives you an idea of what builds up on the insides of the roasting machine. We scraped it all out by hand. It was real fun. After many hours of scraping, laughing, drinking coffee and eating many bagels, the roaster sparkled and was once again ready for another six months of production.
