I have been roasting my own coffee for about a year now. The wife and I got our first taste of "real" coffee about 18 years ago when we ran across Gevalia. Then of course, Starbucks came along and we were spending money hand over fist trying all the different origins.
I finally said to heck with it and went to the Salvation Army and purchased a used Hot Air Popcorn Popper and started roasting my own.
Now, I wouldn’t give you a plugged nickel for a cup of "Charbucks".
Right now in my green coffee inventory:
Panama Berliner Estate
Colombian Popayan Estate
Puerto Rican Yauco Selecto
Indian Plantation "A" Jumbhoor Estate
It takes me about 30 minutes each week to roast enough coffee for the following week, and folks…. Fresh is Best!
Anyone else roasting their own?
