For those who are a fan of coffee, its always interesting to look into the roasting process. From the green bean right to your cup, its all very interesting. I have now found a new hobby, roasting my own beans at home.
There are a number of coffee roasters available for home use. Some are affordable and some are on the very expensive side. I tried out the more affordable FreshRoast + eight home coffee roaster which runs a little over $100. I found it to be a good product and I got 5 pounds of green beans for free to boot!
This particular roaster is perfect for a small household of one or two people. It looks very nice sitting on my kitchen counter as well. Always a plus! It only takes 7 minutes to roast 3.5lbs of green coffee beans. It has timer and a chaff collector. It is fairly quiet and does not smoke up the house. The smell of the roasting beans is amazing.
