  2. When I do a dark roast the beans leave a light oily film in the cooling pan. Is this good or bad? Thanx mike

  8. I bought the same kit you recommend from the same store, and tried this today, on my balcony. Unfortunately, it is about 10 degrees today, so the whole process took much much longer than it should have, about 18 minutes in total, including warming up the popper. I kept checking if the popper was over-heating, but it stayed luke-warm through the whole process, so I kept going. Eventually I stopped, probably slightly too late, because the beans were slightly darker than the reference beans, but I think I was quite close for a first time. I didn't seem to get the bag to put the beans in, so I am letting them rest for one day in a Fellow Atmos container, which should have a similar effect. This is really interesting, and I hope it tastes good 🙂

  9. Hey Aleš,

    I just bought an Iwaka Home, so I was wondering since the video is from 2020, do you have newer green coffee sellers updates?

    Thank you so much for your guy's work, I love watching your videos!

  10. So…be careful which popcorn popper you choose. I live in the US and got a Presto poplite off of Amazon. Long story short, it blows air straight up, not in a circular motion like the one in the video. The result is a bean pops up and out of the machine every couple seconds. I ended up taking off the top and putting a grater on top as a screen which more or less works. But if you can find one that operates more like the one in the video you'll probably be happier.

    That said, thanks for the video! I just started using a ceramic Nuvo roaster but this way is much easier 🙂

  12. Excellent video. I’ve used a simple Korean ceramic roaster. It was ok but difficult to get consistent roast. I’ve just ordered a electric type with stirrer ,about $120.

  15. I was told that home roasting coffee beans over a heat source (like in a pan over the fire etc. is better that “air roasting”, because air roasting drys the beans much more. Is this accurate at all? Thank you 🙏

  21. COFFEE ROASTING CAUSES ACRYLAMID!
    NEVER roast your own coffe, unless you are an expert!
    Or you want to die from terminal cancer.
    At home, you will never be able to measure or differenciate certain levels of acrylamid at certain levels of heat. Don't be stupid!
