Frequently buying every single product to make coffee drinks might really cost you to break the bank. Ihave indeed invested a lot of money to buy the most reliable coffee grinding machine for the perfect grind. I purchased a super-automatic capuccino machine to learn how to work with an espresso maker myself. I even bought a home coffee beans roasting machine. All this equipment cost money. Sadly,when my roaster met its maker,had to buy a new one. However because of the big expense of buying a new one,I just needed to improvise roasting . With that,I opted to start roasting my beans using a popcorn popper.
Learn How to Roast Coffee in a Popcorn Machine
Setup your popper in a properly lit area. A bright environment will help you to notice the shade of the coffee beans and determine whether the coffee beans are sufficiently roasted.
Weigh around 3 oz of beans . Remember,the amount used also depends on the type of the popcorn machine. You can probably even put the suggested amount inside the popper (i.e. if the popper recommends 4 ounces of corn,then put 4 ounces of coffee beans).
Put the coffee beans into the popper and put the lid on.
Use a vessel with a big mouth and cover it with a wet paper towel or a damp washcloth.
Place the container right by the opening of the popcorn popper to capture the chaff.
When you roast the coffee beans,follow the directions of the popper maker. In basic,you must wait for about 4-7 minutes however constantly keep on inspecting the color of the beans.
Take the beans off prior to it reaches your favored roasting level. Put them in a colander and toss the beans. While the beans are still hot,it’s still cooking. That’s why you must eliminate them from the popper prior to they surpass your favored roast.
If you like a light roast coffee,when the coffee begins to expand,take the beans from the popper.
If you like it medium roast,just let the beans cook up until the 2nd crack and after that you can take it off.
If you want a dark roast,just leave the beans in the popper a bit more up until you’ve reached its favored roast.
Tips to bear in mind when Roasting Beans
Idea 1: Plug Directly on the Wall
You get more wattage when you plug your popper directly on the wall. When working with a power cable,you are splitting the power within the power cable.
