Try this one.
Yes, I know, don't cringe!
But for NZ$5.00 I bought a popcorn popper to try and roast some beans.
Had a try, it all happened way faster than I expected, like about 3 minutes, maybe less to the first crack of the first few beans.
Think I over roasted them, but hey, nothing ventured nothing gained, and worse, nothing learnt.
So, is there a thread on here I should read up on to give me a few pointers.
All the You Tube Homework I have done says about 5-7 minutes, so I have a bit to learn.
Anyway, it tasted OK, a bit strong for my taste, compared with the roasted beans I buy.
Hummingbird from Christchurch.
Many thanks if someone can point me to a thread.

Toys! I must have new toys!!!
Such fast responses.
Many thanks to you all.
Off to check out your links etc now.
And I have been reading, you guys gave me heaps to read, and learn.
I have now "over roasted" some Harrar beans, I think!
It is drinkable, but not the way I want it!
My popper did it a bit fast! About 2 minutes.
Maybe might have to let a bit more air flow through with a few extra holes, to cool it down a bit.
Though I did see someone modified one by cutting back the temp with a switch.
Mine is a 1200 watt Moda.
