Hello

I am looking at ways to make my place smell of coffee (i do not mind if it is not all the time). How best can i achieve this?

Can i roast already roasted coffee beans in a popcorn machine(i do not plan on using these coffee beans)? I have ground espresso, can that be used in any way?

Any ideas are welcome!

The smell of roasting coffee beans is quite different from the aroma of brewed coffee, and not everone finds it pleasant. However, I'm quite sure you can find an air freshener that gives off an artificial coffee smell, unless you want to do it the natural way and brew some coffee.

My own experience is the best way to have your place smell of coffee is to brew some.  Roasting would not give your place the familiar smell of coffee.

I think the best smell is freshly ground coffee.

So if you could just run your grinder with a giant hopper full of expensive coffee all day long your place would smell great!

Boil water in pot, add lots of coffee ground, stir and simmer for a few hours.

Coffee air fresheners, vs wasting coffee just for the smell... unless your going to drink it all lol. I had a coffee or hazelnut before one for the Glades freshners I have throughout the house. Or something like this looks cool: Click Here (scentsy.net)

As a roaster, but primarily a farmer, I don't agree.  We have a roaster on the back porch and when you roast Kona- what we grow- you smell the very best. Luscious and yummy and when you drink it- tastes the same goodness and even more so. Jst my $.02
