When it comes to good coffee, freshest is the best...not that stale stuff you buy at the supermarket. Coffee is freshest up to 2 weeks after it is roasted. Then it’s downhill from there. You’ll need to go to a specialty coffeeshop that roasts its own coffee daily to get the really good stuff. And let me tell you, once you taste a properly brewed cup of freshly roasted coffee, there is no turning back!
Can’t find that specialty coffeeshop with the good stuff? Why not roast your own coffee? It’s easy, affordable and you’ll have the freshest coffee on hand whenever you want it!
Unlike roasted coffee, unroasted coffee beans (green beans), stays fresh for 6 months or more. It’s also cheaper than roasted coffee. So you can stock up on the green and roast only what you need. Sounds like coffee nirvana to me.
This guide will show you how to roast green coffee beans on a popcorn popper! Turns out that popcorn poppers like the West Bend Poppery 1 are very good at roasting coffee. There is a lot of information on the internet about roasting coffee in popcorn poppers so check that out. I assume from your interest in this guide that you have already done so and probably have a popcorn popper ready to go. So then, lets get started!!
