When I talk to fellow coffee lovers and the conversation turns toward roasting your own coffee at home, I always hear one of two reasons why folks don't roast their own:
1. It's hard and complicated (it's not, I promise!)
2. Home Roasting equipment is expensive.
Well what if I told you that it's possible to start roasting coffee at home for only $25.
Allow me to introduce you to the Original Whirley-Pop by Wabash Farms
That's right, we're going to be publishing two new articles on the two least expensive ways to start home coffee roasting and you can get started on either for just $25. This week we experimented with the Whirley-Pop. It's a DIYer's dream: no electricity required, fully manual, simple to operate and fun to modify. Check out the tutorial here!
Next week, we'll be experimenting with the Air Popcorn Popper method, so if you prefer a less hands-on and more "plug and play" approach, look for that new tutorial next week. Until then, you can check out our Popper tip-sheet for a head start!
