This project is making us rather...hmmm, what's the word? Desperate? No...Well, maybe. So here we are trying to plan for our usual things. Coffee of course being one of them. I don't know about you, but I can't even contemplate making it through a whole day without at least one cup. But to be honest I really don't actually like coffee. I like what it does for me, but the taste is too much. At least here in the States. When we were in the UK their coffee was nothing short of phenomenal. It wasn't bitter at all and it had this smooth, almost nutty flavor. Well, I've heard the same thing about roasting your own beans at home. Coffee bean roasters can be quite pricey though if you're cheapskates like us. The green beans however, are much cheaper than buying coffee from even the grocery store. So what should we do to roast our own coffee? Why, use an air popcorn popper of course! I found some instructions onhow to use our old air popper to roast beans. How awesome is that? Now we can have fair trade organic beans that are freshly roasted every morning.
