HI everybody

I would like to know something in roasting coffee Beans。It will very kind of you if you could tell me something on this,or even a recommendation to relative websites is also very helpful.Thanks.
Hello Kona- are you looking at roasting at home...or looking at getting into some kind of commercial roasting venture? The difference is kind of like a back street in Mumbai vs main road in Boulder! Let us know and I am sure there are a number of posters who will point you in the right (or somewhat right) direction

I'm sorry...I don't understand your question. But if you are interested in having someone roast for you, there are a lot of good roasters out here, why not pm each one and ask your question :shock:

Roasting Coffee

I am assuming you are wondering about roasting coffee in your home, otherwise you'd just have to head off to your local microroaster (no Starbucks, thank you very much).

The way I got into it was by doing a little research first. I don't usually, but I really like coffee and didn't want to screw it up too much. You would want to start out by purchasing some good green coffee. So far, for the money, I think www.sweetmarias.com has the best to offer (no I don't work for them, but I just like their selection, prices, and quickness of shipping best).

I started roasting with a stove-top popcorn popper modified with a candy thermometer. Trust me, this "modification" is quite simple. In fact, directions on this can be found at Sweet Maria's website. Then, just start practicing. I screwed up, I think, two or three roasts before I got the hang of it. But once I had it figured out, I never went back to drinking from the office sludgepot, from most coffee shops, and never--except in times of extreme exhaustion while travelling--Maxwell House, Folgers, or gas station sewerpots.

Hope that helps.

Get a book by Kenneth Davids called "Home Coffee Roasting". That will help with your questions.... I think....
