  • My first popper roast

    Well I was in the door less than half an hour before I took the green beans down to the shed to complete my coffee snob metamorphosis. Went smoother than expected and will try and wait to taste it before trying some more.. Started with 78g and finished with 64g First crack @ 3 : 08 through to 5 : 00, stopped the heat at 7 : 00ish.
    Forgot to set up the fan beforehand so took me a little messing about to cool them.

        this is the 1250w popper im using. no idea how old it is, been at the back of the cupboard forever and can't remember ever making popcorn with it

        also at this stage it looks like the chimney doesn't add any benefit . did a batch without it and was around the same time as the other


        my ghetto bean cooler using a sieve over the tin and stirring with an air mattress inflater providing the air flow.
        worked well, cooled my 80g batches in about 90 secs




        also a pic of my $2 knock box


        and where the magic happens.

          waited two days before caving and tasting what i had roasted on Thursday. wasn't much left on account of the fact the my 2 year old decided to try and feed some to the cat

          tasted as expected based on the darkness of the beans. the ones a did today i stopped much lighter, (about a minute shorter)
