D I Y Coffee Roasting


Extreme DIY coffee roasters from Sweet Maria’s home coffee roasting supplies.

We pulled our old dusty coffee roaster out of storage with the intent of roasting our own coffee again after a couple of years of buying commercial coffee. After the first roast, I asked myself why did we ever stop home roasting? With the help of Sweet Maria’s and roasting our own beans, we are drinking coffee that puts all trendy wifi coffee houses to shame. We roasted a bag of green Ethiopian Organic DP Bonko “Black Sun” coffee beans. What a wonderful fruity flavor that I have not experienced in any commercially available coffee. Sweet Maria’s provides more information on green coffee beans and home roasting than anything imaginable. Plus it is a bonus to support fair trade and organic coffee growers.

Is that real? Are you roasting coffee with a... heat gun?

Is that worked?

we use a home coffee roaster to roast our coffee. we purchased it from http://www.sweetmarias.com. they have a variety of roasters for sale on their site. we don't use the heat gun, but apparently someone does. thank you for visiting the second helping house!
