Very recently I finally bought my first burr coffee grinder and now that I have one I’m getting tempted to roast my own coffee beans at home. You can usually buy green beans a lot cheaper than pre-roasted beans and you can control just about every input along the way… you know, outside of the growth and sourcing of the beans.
My intent with this page is to serve as a hub for all “how to roast green coffee beans” type of posts on this site.
As I explore various coffee roasting techniques I’ll update this page with links to things that I find on the topic and to blog posts I publish.
To start off let me direct you back to my first post on the topic which went live earlier this month:
How Long Do Green Coffee Beans Stay Fresh – In this article I was learning about the storage of green beans and what to expect if I decided to go down this road. Apparently it’s not bad to buy green coffee beans in extreme bulk because they probably aren’t going to go bad on you any time soon.
If you are stumbling on this page before I’ve had the chance to fully develop this topic then I hope you’ll return at a later date. Maybe hit the subscribe box at the bottom of this post for updates.
