Anyhoo, roasted some IMV to C+.  Omw, Strawberry & Peaches or something.  Best-tasting coffee I've ever had to-date.

Roasting coffee with a popcorn popper

CoffeeGeek serves up simple instructions on how to start your own home roasting career, with the help of a standard, off the shelf popcorn popper, and lots of enthusiasm for learning about the process.

I would have to be genuine bored to death,  to even try something like this.  Yes,  I like coffiee, but I only drink it when I'm working.  I don't do coffee when I'm trying to relax, however the article does look interesting.

And one more caveat - I've read that the some recent models of popcorn poppers now have a heater cutoff fuse that will shut down the heating coils once the temperatures get above 400F.

Can someone provide me with a short list of the hot air poppers that are on the shelves now that definitely work (don't have such a limitation)?

Thanks!

Thanks for the excellent article. I have been on the fence on this and need to jump in and try it. Since I already have a hot air popper in the house does anyone have any experience with the Presto Poplite Corn Popper (model #0482007)? Anythings to watch out for?

Thanks

No one?

Guess I'll just get the one used in the article (Toastess Hot Air Corn Popper - TCP-388?)..

The only one Target sells, $14.00  It's called a Chefmate. I have 2 of them. Their thermostat (and roasting times) vary wildly from one to the other. But each roasts at the same temp/profile every time.
