Here I go about to roast my own coffee.



Of course I'm not doing it with any professional equipment. Any tips from those of you who have successfully doing it yourself for the first time? My plan is to use a popcorn popper, but I'm open to suggestions.

Cast iron skillet preheated to 400F. Into the oven and stirred every five minutes cook for about 20-25 minutes

roast small quantities google "Roasting coffee beans with popcorn popper"

Read what it says about "first crack" and "second crack"

you can listen to what the beans are doing most of the time.

good luck. you are now onto the path toward spending a few hundred dollars to roast beans the right way.

That is one option, he might be on the highway to a local roaster for a retail bit of business.

Why are you roasting your own coffee? I'm just curious.

Sometimes I'll do stuff like this just to see what it entails.

Is there money savings? A better final product?

My Home Roasting Post with Pictures.

For what it's worth, I eventually burnt up my $14 roaster and dropped $150 on a unit made for it. The quality is so much better, especially for espresso. Green beans are in the $6 per pound range, and I only roast what I need for a few days. I have zero waste on stale beans now. The varieties are endless, and the flavor profile changes greatly on each individual bean by varying the roast darkness.
