Anyone ever tried roasting their own coffee beans?
I recently bought some green coffee beans to try my hand at home roasting. I"ve heard that freshly roasted coffee is in a league of its own and the only way for me to try it here in Arka-fucking-Hee-Haw was to do it myself. My first batch was alright, better than store-bought coffee but not by a lot.
My second batch though... Holy Shit
I don't drink coffee for the caffeine kick, I drink it for the taste, so a dark roast is my goal. The heat helps bring all the oils and flavor out.
Look at these beans. They look wet, but that's not water, its oil.
