Happy post-Thanksgiving to all! I recently joined the list and can't wait to jump into home-roasting. I do not have the re$ources$ for a commercial roaster, but am looking forward to trying the hot-air method...re-sale shops better watch out! I was wondering if there was anyone on the Northern Illinois area? More specifically, Northwestern Chicago 'burbs. Peace and a fresh cup-o-java to you all, AB

No, you can't come over yet, because my apartment isn't clean.

Near west suburbs, work takes me far west as well. Started roasting this year. Modded the popper to extend roast times into 12-15 minute territory (much nicer in the cup).
Welcome! And don't let lack of re$ource$ stop you. Get ye some greens and take them for a wok! Excellent results as well as really getting to know the process can be obtained with a skillet or wok roasting. miKe mcKoffee URL to Rosto mods, FrankenFormer, some recipes etc:http://mdmint.home.comcast.net/coffee/Rosto_mod.htmUltimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path.
