    First roast

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Good morning all ,
    * ** ** ** ** ** ** ** *Thought I would share my first home roast experience . I bought a popper at the local Vinnies ( black & decker 1200 watt ) for a few dollars and got rid of the plastic surrounds . Made my self a chimney from a Aldi salmon can which has a smaller diameter from one end to the other. I contemplated the whole timing , temp thing but decided to leave that for another time as I was just itching to give it a go ( thanks Divey ) . I found an old fan in the shed and decided this would be the go to cool the beans whilst swirling them around in a strainer in front of it . Well, I heated up the popper a bit and put 100 g of Ethiopian in it and stirred them around until they got going . Got to first crack and all was good and as soon as second crack started I got them out and started cooling the beans . I put them in e re-sealable bag with just a very small opening left so as to get rid of the gas build up and after 2 days sealed them up . Well its day 3 now and I have just ground some up with my $20 K mart grinder and brewed some up in my plunger . As I type Im drinking the best coffee I have ever had . To say Im astounded is an understatement and I cant believe Ive been missing out on this for all these years.
    Regards
    Brenton.

    Good Stuff!
    It only gets better!
    The only downside is it makes it much harder to tolerate the abundance of mediocre coffee around.
