Roasting Coffee Working With a Popcorn Maker

Sometimes purchasing every product to make espresso might cost you to spend a lot. Ihave certainly invested a ton of money buying the perfect coffee bean grinding machine for the perfect grind. I bought the latest espresso maker to learn how to use an espresso machine myself. And even purchased a hobbyist coffee roaster. All these cost me a lot of money. Regretfully,when my roaster decided it had enough,had to purchase a new one. But with the heavy expense of purchasing a brand-new one,I just had to improvise roasting at home. That being,I decided to start roasting my beans working with a popcorn popper.

How to Roast in a Popcorn Maker

Setup your roaster in a lit spot. A bright place will allow you to observe the color of the coffee and decide if the coffee beans are correctly cooked.
Measure around 3 oz of beans . Keep in mind,the amount used is based on the size of the popper. You may add the suggested amount inside the popper (i.e. if the popper recommends 4 ounces of corn,then put 4 ounces of coffee beans).
Pour the coffee into the popcorn maker and place the lid on.
Get a container with a wide opening and cover it using a wet paper towel or a damp washcloth.
Place the container right by the opening of the popcorn popper to capture the chaff.
When you roast the coffee beans,follow the directions of the popper manufacturer. In basic,you ought to wait on about 4-7 minutes but always keep examining the color of the beans.
Take the beans off prior to it reaches your favored roasting level. Put them in a colander and toss the beans. While the beans are still hot,it’s still cooking. That’s why you ought to remove them from the popper prior to they exceed your favored roast.
If you like a light roast coffee,as soon as the coffee starts to crack,take the beans from the popper.
If you like it medium roast,simply let the beans roast until the 2nd crackling noise and after that you can take it off.
Just leave the beans in the popper a bit more until you’ve reached its favored roast if you prefer a dark roast.
