I stumbled across this blog post that explains how to roast your own beans at home with a hot air popcorn popper.
Ummm, what? I had no idea I could roast my own beans at home. No idea.
Now, being a bit of a coffee snob, I’m a gonna have to try it to believe it. But if it works – cool!
I think this would make a really awesome handmade Christmas gift. If I’m stumped for a Christmas gift, I usually just buy a pound of coffee from Starbucks. Well, move over, Breakfast Blend. You could even create a special blend just for your family. Roast it, package it, and stick an awesome label on it. Done and done.
