Great post beefeater.  I'd like to see this on the recipe board.

I'll second that motion!

Simply outstanding!

I'm reading this as I have my morning coffee, envious because mine is commercially roasted.

I think I've been roasting my own beans for about 4 years. I started our with a air roaster called the Freshroast+ and a basic Hearthware burr grinder. (as opposed to the whirling blade kind) That enabled me to get into enough to taste the difference that fresh roasting and proper grinding/brewing make.
 
Unlike bbq, there are a lot of variables that are difficult to maintain consistently. Any problem or mistake with the raw bean, the roast, the grind or the brew and you've got yourself a pretty lousy cup of joe.

Would be interested to hear if you discern any difference in the final brewed cup of Bubba Joe vs. Regular Joe

Actually I ground and brewed a pot this morning and it was might fine! Yes....the keg does coffee well too! Although when I cooked my spatchcock chicken last night there was the lingering smell of roasting coffee beans in the air. (which smells more like popcorn than it does brewed coffee)

It all starts out so innocently. Please don't tell your wife who gave you the idea!

Anybody that has any questions or wants more resources feel free to post or PM me.

I'm pretty safe from taking up this new pastime-- I'm not a coffee drinker. For some reason, I never acquired the taste, but I sure do love the smell of fresh coffee Tongue.

One of the members of the woodworking tool club I belong to mentioned to me last year that, although he has several high quality roasters of various ages, the hardware he uses most often is the old WearEver Popcorn Pumper from back in the 70's-80's which he finds at thrift shops and places like that. Apparently it does coffee better than I remember them doing popcorn Grin.

Yes...several styles of popcorn poppers are popular to modify into coffee roasters. Mods involve bypassing t-stats to enable them to hit 500 degree temps. That in turn requires mods to other components to withstand those temps. My main roaster is a Stircrazy popcorn popper combined with a convection Turbo oven with mods to both to make the combo into a roaster.
