Go ahead and get creative with it mix beans together and make your own blends. We think blending is great... what you lack in one bean you can make up with another.
How to Roast Coffee Beans
To roast at home we recommend using a crank style popcorn maker. You can also use a heavy frying pan or a cast iron skillet.
1: Start by heating the frying pan or roaster on the stovetop to a medium setting, or until temperature reaches about 475 F. Add up to 8 oz. of green coffee beans and close the lid and begin turning the crank (or stirring) constantly.
2: Continue stirring. Beans must be agitated constantly for an even roast. At a minimum, beans must be stirred every 30 seconds. In 4- 7 minutes the beans will start to make crackling sounds. At this time coffee smelling smoke will start to appear. If you have a fan hood, turn it on now, or open the window.
3: About a minute after the first crack check the beans color frequently (once a minute) until the beans have reached the desired roast color.
4: Once the beans are roasted to your satisfaction, immediately remove from heat and pour into a large metal colander to cool. Toss or stir the beans to remove excess chaff and speed the cooling process.
