I began roasting coffee in a cast iron fry pan. The heating portion of the roasting process was quite good, but I seemed to have difficulty cooling the beans well enough.

A friend recommended Sweet Maria's as a resource, they have an extensive set library of online articles, tips, and tricks for newbies like me. He also recommended the purchased of a "Hottop Basic Roaster", which I bought through Sweet Maria's, as well as a high-end grinders (for making espresso).

With the Hottop, the practice of roasting has moved from being a novelty to something more like a weekly task... less artisan, more routine. But the consistency and quality of the coffee in my home is virtually without parallel, except in the case of my friend, Keith and his lovely wife Vickie in Colorado Springs, who's coffee I have sampled and was reminded by it, that my coffee making skills still have room for improvement.
