I know this thread is about roasters, but I'd like to register my confusion as to why more people aren't home roasting. It's not rocket science or that time consuming. I've been roasting in a whirly pop a pound at a time for about a year now, judging my roasts by sight and smell. Of all the beans I've roasted I think there are only 3 I would not buy again. Each roast is an adventure.

That being said I've been getting my green beans from the Green Coffee Company in Alberta. I notice they have my all time favourite back in stock. It will definitely be on my next order.

Folks say making espresso at home is new hobby; I'd that home roasting can be an additional hobby ... and, like espresso, it is possible to dive very deep :oops:.

However, like coffee - and unlike espresso - it isn't necessary to dive very deep into roasting to get tasty results 8).

Maybe once pulling Godshots back to back becomes trivial Ill consider adding the hobby of roasting.

On a bit of a Madawaska run.

Between order and chaos there is espresso.
