Coffee Roasting at Home

mocooks | Sep 5, 2007 01:08 PM

My husband has gradually become very serious about his morning coffee and would like to start roasting his own coffee beans. I have looked online a bit for home coffee roasters and was hoping I could get some advice and recommendations on good home coffee roasters. Does anybody have a model that they have been happy with and is still on the market? For a price point, from what I have seen, roasters can range anywhere from $70 to $500. Obvioulsy I would prefer to get something in the lower end of that range but don't want to sacrifice quality just because the price is right. Also, I am somewhat worried about the smoke factor. We live in an apartment so I am hoping to find a machine that wouldn't cause my husband to set off the smoke alarm every morning.
