The home-roast (how easy it is)
All it took was one read of this blog post, and I was desperate to try it.
And boy, am I glad that I did.
I Ebay ordered a popcorn popper (the West Bend Poppery II) and ordered some green beans from Sweet Maria’s. It works out a lot cheaper than buying it freshly roasted from Whole Foods every few days, plus there’s the divine smell, and, as Mr. Huenink points out, the ‘aura-cleansing’ aspect of it, which I am always a fan of, living in Los Angeles (home of the constantly-cleansing and brightest auras).
Do try it. It’s really worth it. And so, so easy.
Addendum: Wait for the coffee to cool before grinding and brewing it. It tastes disgusting otherwise.
