Lunchtime Survey: Have You Ever Roasted Coffee at Home?

Our post on home coffee roasting mecca Sweet Maria's made us curious about our readers and roasting coffee at home. We remember when we first had a friend who did this. He used a hot air popcorn popper to regularly roast his own beans. Another good friend used one too, but he had to do all the roasting on the back porch because his pregnant wife couldn't stand the smell.

We leave our coffee roasting to the experts, but we're curious about your experiences. Do you like roasting your own coffee, how did you get into it, and how do you do it?
