I started out of curiosity and a spare popcorn machine sitting in the cupboard, a CS starter pack and say no more....Corretto roaster, multitudes of green beans to choose from.
I enjoy being able to create my own blends and so roasts and enjoy them at different stages after they have been roasted. The quality of the beans that Andy offers to us is amazing, I have so many beans I love I couldnt really say my all-time favourite as it changes all the time.
I love getting out in the garage (my haven) and savouring the aromas and smoke from roasting beans, my wife left her washing hanging in there last week and the sheets had a rather nutty smell to them!!
Economy of home roasting is also a consideration--but freshness and uniqueness are number one factor for me.
