Second Try: Home Roasting

It was Sunny and not so windy today, and I was about to run out of coffee beans. So, I decided to take a long lunch break and roast coffee.

My equipment:

The fan on the deck is for cooling my beans. I use a strainer to cool my beans.

I went for the lighter roast for the first batch, and here is how it turned out:

Time: 7 minutes. Stopped at the beginning of the second crack.

I went for darker roast for the second batch, and here is how it turned out:

Time: 8.5 minutes. Stopped at 15~20 seconds into the second cracks.

It became just a little bit windy by the time I got started, and it might have affected the heat distribution. I might try coming up with a better DIY windshield around the stove next time.
