Adventures in Popper Roasting Coffee Beans for Espresso

I’m new to home coffee roasting and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a roaster before learning the basics of how the process works. Starting with an air popper has been very educational and fun for me, and so far I am very pleased with the results.

I figure that I will keep roasting coffee every week this way until I burn out the popper and then I will buy a very nice home roaster (if not a small-scale “professional” roaster).
