Speed Up the Coffee Roasting
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar
I've complained before about how my little electric popcorn maker slows down to half speed when the ambient air temperature gets cold. Today I decided to try placing a small cardboard box over the popcorn roaster and the results were impressive. I went from a roast time of 8 minutes in cold weather down to 3 minutes. Obviously there is a fire hazard here, but I watch the process closely so I can get a ideal bean color.
