Beginning Roaster
John Morris (Denver, CO) 10/15/2011 9:14 AM
I purchased the verity pack and found this to be the best of the group. I also purchased the book, Home Coffee Roasting, and I believe that I was given a free lb. to go along with it and because I had been to Ethiopia as a Navy man I chose this, it is excellent. The flavor tones showed up even with my beginning efforts at roasting. I used the Whirley Pop method and found it to be an easy and affordable way to enter the world of the home roaster. I found that my technique required some adjustment but the book helped a lot in knowing what to do and how to do it. My first efforts at roasting took longer than expected (almost 1 hour), but after getting my starting temp. right I was able to get the time down into the 15-20 min range.
