Like hands-on projects? Get started roasting your own coffee for a very small investment. If you have a gas or high quality electric stove with a vent hood you can roast your own coffee with the Whirley-pop popcorn popper, a heat diffuser (or cast-iron pan to help diffuse the heat), and some basic knowledge. For a summary of how to roast with a whirley-pop, visit our how-to page (link below). We also highly recommend that you purchase (or borrow) the book Home Coffee Roasting, which we also sell. Includes our basic roasting guide and one pound of organic green coffee beans (your choice from our current selection except for decaf).
