    I recently got into roasting my own coffee beans (sign of an addiction i guess, lol). Any one else doing this?

    How do you do that? I grind my own, tho, and I do love that.

    I was given a little coffee roaster by a church member who knew of my love of coffee.
    It's about a $70 roaster, as opposed to one of the tumble roasters that go for about $400.

    Looks like fun - you buy green beans (which look like they are cheaper than already roasted beans ) then roast and grind them.

    Yep...buy the green beans and then roast them to your desired roast. I'm a dark roast person, so i wait for them to get dark with that greasy sheen on them; just right!

    Do you roast them in the oven like peanuts?
