Roasting My Own Coffee

On Feb 27 2012 I started roasting coffee at home. The equipment I use: roaster: Fresh Roast SR500 hot air coffee roaster; grinder: Mr Coffee burr grinder; brewer: Cooks 12 cup automatic drip.


Here are my experiences, with rambling narrative and pictures, over the steepest part of my learning curve for the first 2 + weeks of roasting.


Week 1 Mexico Chiapas; Jamaica Blue Mountain (quite a few times until I felt like I got it right.)
Week 2 Ethiopia Harrar; Mexico Chiapas; Columbia Sierra Nevada; Brazil Poco Fundo; Jamaica Blue Mountain yet again.
