Stove Top Flour Sifter Coffee Roaster

Home roaster and Sweet Maria’s customer, David Almond built this minimal machine for only a few bucks.

David Almond sent us a few pics of his DIY roaster made from a normal flour sifter a few months ago. Since then, he’s been tinkering a bit and upgraded his original design to one that produces double the batch size.

Here’s everything David used to build his roaster:

  • -8 cup stainless steel flour sifter
  • -4″ C clamp
  • -a cast iron pan
  • -stainless steel hardware cloth

He also used a headlamp to get a better view of the coffee as it’s roasting.

  1. Thank you — I really love David’s ingenuity. I have been wondering how to make a simple roaster I can travel with, and this would seem to fit the bill.

    Also, I am glad to see I am not the only one who wears flip-flops with socks in the winter.

    1. Yes the simplicity here is brilliant. Check another one for socks n’ flops. Actually wool socks n flops. The pandemic permits this…

  2. David I like the idea of using a flour sifter and will also try inverting my canning jar lids during off-gassing.. on a completely different topic, the nine-pointed star on your the door is a plus 🙂
