    Do you want to build a roaster
    or

    Are you a good handyman?

    You can buy a Gene Cafe or a Hot Top roaster
    or
    You can make a Corretto or a Turbo Oven roaster

    Looks like you will have a lot of reading to do in order to make a decision on what path you want to take, start here:

    The Koffee Kosmo Turbo Oven Roaster (Built):

    The Corretto Roaster (Built):

    Hottop (Bought):

    Gene Cafe (Bought):

    I-Roast (Bought):
    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1124115705

    That should get you a start, do a search, there is tonnes of info on all things roasting, you could read for a year and still have more to research!

    Happy roasting and building!

    And the experts are always here to offer a hand if you need!

    cheers

    OR....

    Get the old popcorn popper out of the cupboard and blow the dust off it?

    IT sounds like you just want to understand roasting a bit more right?
    Then i would suggest not going out and spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars when you can lear more than you expect from a $30 popcorn popper :)

    The mighty Popcorn Popper has been keeping me in fresh coffee beans since 1996 and only now am I feeling the need to upgrade. It is a very good way to get hands on experience with simple roasting and much less intensive than the wok. Give it a go... minimal cost, minimal effort... in short great bang for your buck!
