Everything in that article is completely accurate (regarding roasting coffee), Womb Raider. I think I would even recommend this over my pan-roasting method. Especially since you have easy access to the green beans, Chris.
I have heard and seen people use Popcorn-poppers for beans, but it's really messy. I can't believe I've never thought of this method before. I think I will try this myself! Thanks, unfriendly1!
Another benefit from this, is that it would blow out the chaff. I'm going to need to get a heat gun now. But it'd have to be one that you could switch from heat to blowing cool air. Once the coffee is roasted (especially dark roasts) the bean needs to be cooled quickly.
