7 Reasons Why You Should Give Home Roasting a Try
To roast coffee at home is simple (as popping popcorn, roasting nuts or even boiling eggs), quickly (takes 10 to 15 minutes), entertaining (lots of fun experimenting) and saves you money. Here are the top seven reasons to bring your coffee to the next level:
1. Your coffee is fresh
When we shop for groceries, we always look for freshness – fruits or vegetables that just have been picked, a food that just have been prepared and especially when we buy baked goods, we want them fresh! Why? Simply, because they taste! It is the same with the coffee – it tastes best when it’s freshly roasted!
2. You buy green specialty coffee beans for less
In Canada a pound of specialty green coffee average $12, while a pound of roasted specialty coffee is about $20.
3. You probably have at home the right kitchen appliance
Green coffee beans can be roasted with:
- a skillet on top of the stove;
- a pan in the oven;
- a hot-air popcorn popper or
- in a small specially designed electric home coffee roaster.
4. You roast the coffee as you like it
You can control the roasting process and prepare the coffee to the right roasting level as per your taste requirement.
5. Make your own blends
On some next level, after some time of experimenting, when you become comfortable with the roasting process and different origin coffee flavors, you can start creating your own blends for different emotions and events.
6. Makes a great gift
Home roasted coffee is always very good idea for a gift and I bet you’ll become the most popular among your friends.
