Home Roasting Coffee

My new favourite hobby is roasting my own coffee.  Delicious and awesome. 

I started off by researching easy ways to roast coffee at home and came upon this video:

I found a cheap (free actually) popper at a yard sale.

I ordered the green coffee beans from Sweet Maria's (the company that also made the video).  It cost me (after shipping) just shy of 30 dollars for 4 different varieties of coffee (one pound each).

Following the instructions in the video, each roasting session lasts about 5 to 7 minutes.    I roast the coffee the day before and then enjoy the freshly roasted coffee the next day.  I have just been amazed with the results.
