Good morning

Who has roasted their own coffee beans? What guidance can you give me?

Ive seen a couple of YouTube videos on roasting coffee beans on a smoker, and I’m intrigued.

Funny this should appear today. I just ordered green Blue Mountain and Kona coffee beans for roasting at home.
Lots of information on this thread:

Thank you for linking that thread. I read through everything, and posted a couple of questions to it.

Unfortunately, the beans I ordered are still sitting in the cabinet. I just haven’t made the time to try roasting them. Still on my radar as something I need to do!
I40, have you had a chance to roast any coffee yet?

We've had a pretty mild winter so I've roasted every 7-11 days. We may run short of food during this pandemic, but I've got a year's worth of green beans to roast for the flavor profile I love.

It's so interesting how the flavors from different regions, sometimes the same farm, change from year to year. I shouldn't be surprised because it us a crop, after all.

I kind of moved away South and Central America growers to African farms, but recently roasted Brazilian beans that knocked my socks off. I stocked up. Two years ago I tried Brazilian beans and wrote in my log to avoid them. Glad I didn't listen to myself!
