Roasting Profiler

An attempt to control coffee roasting using a temperature probe and a laptop.
I'm going to connect a thermocouple and a pair of relays to one of my computers.
Then I'll write some software that will directly control my roaster to produce a specific roast profiles.

This should be interesting.

A bit of searching produced a link to a project at Spark Fun electonics about making a reflow toaster oven controller.
The Analog Devices AD595 will handily connect a k-type thermocouple to a pic.
