A number of people have asked how they can roast their own coffee. People do it many different ways and you would be suprised what works. Here is a link to an article that was posted a few days ago on coffeegeek.com that gives a great how-to on using a hot air popcorn machine. http://www.coffeegeek.com/guides/popperroasting .
I personally use a different method but there are a number or B & B members that have great success this way. I am sure that any one of them would be happy to assist a 'noob' if they wanted to give it a try. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and give it a try if you want to enjoy yet another addicting hobby.
