What do I need to get started Roasting My Own Coffee?
Just Two Things: A Roaster and some Green Beans
First... Choosing the right Home Roaster
Home coffee roasters come in three different categories: Stove-top, air-bed, and drum. 1) Stove-top, as the name suggests, go on your stove and you stir the beans with a crank. 2) Air bed roasters blow super hot air into a chamber and roast or cool the beans based on a timer. 3) Drum roasters are typically a bit pricier, but are the closest you will come to a pro-roaster on such a small scale.
The typical home coffee roasters handles around 5 oz of beans - enough for a few days worth of coffee. The Whirley-Pop coffee roaster (our least expensive model) can actually roast over a pound at a time! The trick is knowing how far to go into the roast - and we provide you with all the information you need to roast like a pro.

Second... Selecting the right Green Beans
Some coffee beans are known for bight acidity and clarity of flavor (Costa Rican) some are known for depth and earthiness (Sumatra) or interesting fruity characteristics (Ethiopian). It is always fun to read through our descriptions just pick out green beans that sound interesting. However, we have developed an interesting way to select coffees - by the flavors you might want. Check out our Flavor Finder Utility, check the flavors that appeal to you and click find. Let our Flavor Finder do the rest!
