Hello Everyone & Happy Holidays,
   I'm new to the group and kind of new to roasting also. I am using a
whirly popcorn popper to roast my beans. I have been having a problem
roasting . My beans are always a little darker than I would like. Any
tips would be greatly appreciated.
 Have a great turkey day!
Sandy

Hi Sandy,
Welcome to the list!
About your question: Do you mean the color is darker than you would
like, or do you mean that the roast is going further than you would
like, so that you are getting a bit of burned flavor in your coffee?

Sandy,
You're saying you use a whirly pop without anything else?  I'm surprised 
it's working at all.  What happens if you just reduce the time?  And how 
much are you roasting per batch?  How long?

Sandy welcome to a great place to have a virtual coffee room experience.
When you get a chance check out Thom's virtual coffee roasting university,
although there are an unlimited supply of subject matter experts out there
in the www,
I start my education into all things coffee related at Sweet Maria's
website.
I can spend hours there reading, and know that I am saving myself a lot of
time,
when I'm trying out new to me anyways, home coffee roasting methods...
Here's one to get you started-http://www.sweetmarias.com/stovepopmethod.htmlGood luck and happy roasting!
