    I've recently gotten into roasting.. I bought a cheapo popcorn maker, 8 lbs of green beans from sweet marias and had at er. The first 2-3 roasts werent too good; too much heat, not roasted through. After that, with various techniques, I extended my roasting time and made some damn fine coffee. In fact, possibly some of the best ive ever had. I am kicking myself for having waited so long to get into this!

    Best part is I get to smoke a nice cigar while roasting outside!

    Welcome to the club! What's your cold weather strategy?

    Say.... you're not another one of those Canadian coffee roasters who only got into it so he could have more posts so he could get pm's to discuss cigars, are you?

    What, there are more of us? Haha not exactly, though being able to send PM's will be nice. I am genuinely interested in coffee roasting, in fact more so than I am into cigars.

    Dealing with the weather here is more of a challenge than I originally thought. I'm from the prairies and the temperature is all over the place.. For example, today it is supposed to be 27C (80F) and tomorrow only 13C (55F). Even a 10 degree Celsius temperature change drastically changes how the coffee roasts. In temperatures over 20, I have to constantly move the beans, blow on them and tilt the popper at an angle to keep things from heating up too much. At anything under 10, I have to put a steel bowl over the popper to get it to heat up more to reach second crack. The time of day and amount of wind may have something to do with this also, but it's temperamental and pretty difficult getting consistent results. Regardless, it's a lot of fun and it's a good way to learn how to 'read' the beans in terms of colour and smell.

    It's starting to get really cold here unfortunately, so I may have to retire my popcorn maker soon. It makes much too much smoke to roast indoors, so my next investment in a couple months is a Behmor 1600. This has smoke suppression so I should safely be able to roast on my stove with the hood fan turned on.. I hope. I'm also thinking of setting up a ventilation system indoors so that I can roast coffee (and unofficially - smoke cigars) indoors!

    Does anyone here have experience with the Behmor 1600? How much smoke does it actually put off?

    I read they set off smoke alarms but, so far, that's just hearsay. I know folks really like them, tho.

    If you find a cardboard box the popper fits in just so, with the lid partly closed, it will recirculate warm air and work pretty well down to freezing. Look on the internet - there are some example fotos. Mine needs to be protected once it got around 50*.

    Before you invest in a Behmor check out this thread, the 14th post shows you how to make a superb roaster for under 120 dollars.

    For a first roaster, should I get the....

    Thanks to Dan (Mister Moo) I have one and it is fantastic.

    I roast on a B1600, it does set off my smoke alarm, but I just pull that off the ceiling and keep going, it isnt thick smoke that bothers me like other roasting methods Ive failed at indoors. I find it perfectly suitable for indoor roasting, in fact, I think I'll go throw a pound in now
