How to roast your own coffee beans

How to roast your own coffee beans

Many folks start their home coffee roasting experience using a repurposed hot air popcorn popper. These can often be found lurking in the back cupboard of your kitchen or at a thrift store or garage sale for just a few bucks. When it comes to "dedicated" home roasters the two most common versions are either hot air or drum styles. These are simply smaller versions of the large commercial operations. It is also possible to roast in a more old school style using a skillet or wok, or in an oven. (A few months ago I tried the skillet method while waiting for my replacement roaster to arrive. My original Fresh Roast 8 died after five-plus years of near daily use). As an entry point into the home roasting market I would highly recommend my recent replacement roaster, the Fresh Roast SR300. It’s an easy-to-use and value-priced unit that produces some great results.
