Eth Nat Yirg Idido roasted yesterday. I dropped some off at a friends coffee shop. In a few days he will brew it and tell me what he thinks. We believe my roasts are better than what we buy.

They seem to be after the shoutbox. They have been removed. I don't see anything in the forums.

Probably how most people started...
Hi everyone,
New to the forum here. I started roasting with a simple popcorn popper 2-3 years ago, and it served us well. Very simple, basic, only made a mod for cooling. It was a cheapie we got on a special for about $14, blows air in from underneath. Not ideal but it worked for small batches. That's where it started getting a bit much - roasting 6 batches to have coffee for 2 weeks, and that's where I decided it's time to build my own - will post about that in the appropriate part of the forum. It was at that point that I started reading up a lot, looking at commercial roasters, studying the shortcomings and eventually deciding to do it cheaper!
