Hi all, How about an Aerorost I or II.  I saw one on e-bay then went to their site and checked out the  little movies they had. Looks like a homemake deal with a regular halogen worklight attached.  Has anyone ever used these? I'm just waiting on my beans so that I can try out this homeroast. My wife and I drink nothing but coffee and we figure that homeroasting will save us some money over *bucks in the long run.

Have you tried roasting with air-poppers, yet? Grrrreat way to get
started!  1/4 # @ a time. And then you'll want bigger roasts, so
you'll move up to a heatgun/dogbowl roast to do 1/2 # to full #'s !!!.
Then you'll decide that you NEED more, so you'll get into BBQ drum
roasting, to do 2 -5 lb batches....within 6 months, you'll actually
entertain the thought of a REAL roaster like a Diedrich... Aeroroast?
why bother...
:-)
BTW, welcome to the List! Ever hear of GGSC?

Yeah, they attached a halogen light as an additional heat source because the 
first design they sold a bunch of didn't work.  It's just a store bought 
broiler oven with a $5 halogen lamp added as an afterthought.  It still 
won't roast coffee in a reasonable amount of time (based on info from their 
website).

You should seriously consider starting with a hot air popper.  It's a
great way to learn and you can find them at the thrift store for a
couple of dollars.

Popper is a great way to experiment and learn and the small roast 
amount will not burn through your beans so fast... its VERY easy to 
over roast supply with larger machines....

Save your $ for better beans, is all I'm saying! This is really good
advice! Air poppers are as easy as making...well...a good cup of
coffee. Buy a really good grinder, and a french press.

Hi Kevin, 1 thing that you can do is track your order, online. I share
your frustrations, as I had to wait all week for my Rocky to arrive
from SweetMaria's.
If you need help setting up your popper you can g-mail me direct, I've
got some links saved up from websearching, kinda random, someday I'll
be bored enough to organize my links better!
1 thing about air poppers is they are a little touchy concerning
outdoor temperatures, what's the weather like in your neighborhood? Do
you roast indoors, or outdoors? Glad to help you get started, there
are many people here that can point you in the right direction!
