People have roasted coffee at home for centuries, using numerous methods. Until World War I it was more common to roast coffee at home than to buy pre-roasted coffee.
During the 20th century commercial coffee-roasting companies became common and home-roasting decreased.
People are now returning to home roasting to get the freshest possible coffee with aroma undiminished by storage - using equipment as simple as a skillet over a hot stove or a pop corn popper - or as specialised as a Behmor Plus benchtop roaster.
Home roasting allows coffee lovers to experiment with their own blends of single origin beans and with roasting profiles (the time beans spend at each temperature).
The Green Bean House provides the widest range of single origins available to home roasters and roasting recommendations to get you started. Enjoy!
