I just started roasting coffee last September. It’s humorous to discover something like this for the first time.  I mean, really, I didn’t know this stuff until now! I’ve been a java head all my life.

The aroma of roasting  coffee coupled with the satisfaction of getting it right, plus taste, is one of those satisfying down to earth things to do. What a reward! In the back of my mind, roasting coffee was in the same category as high school physics, which I couldn’t wrap my head around.

I continue to roast in my skillet and the results are rewarding. I decided to forego any specialized equipment until I really understand the process.

If you would like more information on coffee roasting at home, Sweet Marias is a great source for the coffee roasting enthusiast. They provide everything you’ll need to get started. Have fun!
