This is my new thing...home coffee roasting.

I have a new hobby: coffee roasting. I am really into it. If you like coffee, there is nothing like the taste, effects and BENEFITS of a cup of coffee made from freshly roasted coffee beans.

Commercial coffee that you buy in your local supermarket or even in a gourmet food shop is dead. It lacks the flavor and health benefits (there are many: antioxidants, polyphenols, anticarcinogenic compounds, etc.) Whereas freshly roasted coffee is loaded with these things and much more.

Green coffee beans can stay fresh for a long time, but once roasted, the beans can get stale fast. I drink it 48 hours after I roasted. That time is needed to allow the beans to "de-gas" after roasting. (Releasing carbon dioxide and other gasses.)

I recently bought this home roaster. Here is a video of a batch of Vietnamese robusta I roasted up a few days ago.
