Smallest batch size possible? One bean! I believe Les actually did a one
bean RK Drum roast. Maybe not too practical. Smallest batch I've actually
roasted "just for fun" was 25gr, enough for one double shot-) Also didn't do
that stovetop but Caffe' Rosto. IMO irrelevant, I know I could have done it
with a wok, frying pan, whatever. As Martin says "Heat + Beans, the rest is
Smaller batches you'll just need to apply heat more judiciously.

Subject: +Question about stovetop popper roasting
I plan to start roasting with a whirlypop, and I had a question on batch
sizes. I know you can roast 1/2 pound or even a full pound in the stovetop
popper. What about smaller batches? Can you do small batches in the
whirlypop without burning the beans? What's the smallest recommended batch
I'd like to start with smaller batches, at least until I know what I'm
doing. I don't want to destroy my 2 lbs of beans in 4 tries!
