have been buying green arabica beans and roasting at home since
June 2000 and enjoy the best tasting coffee I have ever had....every
day. Because I have to roast such small batches, I can only
keep up with our immediate family's needs and share my precious
java beans on occasion. I do encourage everyone to look into
their own coffee at home.
am currently using a new semi-pro model called the Hottop Roaster
(see picture below). This produces a half-pound batch of evenly-roasted
coffee in about 28 minutes (including warmup and cooldown) ...and
it is computer controlled.
