    I did this myself a few months ago. I've really enjoyed it as a hobby. Single origin coffee is an entirely different beast from blended coffee, though. It's less about smooth, balanced coffee, and more about what unique notes you can pull from each different bean. I hope you're enjoying it.

    Hot air poppers are a great way to start. I burned up two of them I roasted so much...then I burned up two smaller bean roasters Roasting a half cup or so of beans at a time will get tiresome if you go through as much coffee as we do. I ended up getting a Hottop roaster about 8+ years ago..and it is still going strong. Some people are scared off by the high sticker price but when I look at the replacement rate of what I was doing, it ends up being cheaper in the long run.

    I do have the first generation unit which didn't have all the features they do now, but since I'm not super fanatical about roasting to the second at a certain temp for certain beans, it does a good job for me.

    I was speaking to the US rep, he was the one who figured how old my unit is going by when the second generation came out. He seemed shocked it is still going strong after the many hundreds of pounds I have roasted. He also told me they are working on a one pound unit...I think that will be my next roaster. I DID however buy a back up board & control panel for my old machine in case something happens before the one pounder hits the market.
