Sorry about the low light, the iphone really doesn’t do well indoors. West Bend The Poppery 1500w, unmodified. 50 degrees. First crack at around 3:30, second crack at about 6:30. Awesome! This salad spinner was a gift that was just going to get donated, but now I’m glad I got it. I realized after I was done that drilling some vent holes in the top will speed up the cooling even more. I’ll post a comment about how that works out.

    West Bend Stir Crazy base, Galloping Gourmet turbo convection oven. Removed heating element from SC, installed metal shaft. Roasting 11 ounces of beans, it can handle more but I’m waiting to perfect my chaff ejection system/spacer. A pretty but windy day about 50 degrees. Because of the small gap around the edge of the SC/CO, I don’t like roasting on windy days. I’ve done a couple changes to my stirring arms, and am very pleased with them. These beans are going to a customer who likes their roasts a little darker than I do.

    Quest for Coffee Roaster

    I’d heard that you could use a type of old popcorn air popper to roast coffee beans, so I thought I’d give it a try. Turns out the popper is a little harder to find than I’d thought…

How to roast coffee beans on the cheap from start to finish. Basically, you dump the green coffee beans in until they aren’t bouncing around much and stir until they are. Wait until desired roast is reached (we like to roast into the second crack a minute or so, otherwise they don’t seem done), then cool as rapidly as possible and age in an airtight container for a few days before grinding and brewing.
