Relocated from NC to MI this Summer. Decided to finally roast some beans again. Pulled out the popper...5 minutes...10 minutes...15 minutes...not doing anything. Put that newer popper aside and dug through some boxes to find the old popper. The last time I used it I left it in the rain. Plug it up beans are almost a perfect medium roast. There is a smoke alarm in the garage...it goes off...move the beans outside quickly and ruin the batch or take the next 30 seconds and take the risk of waking the family...stick with the beans...perfect beans and the family didn't hear the alarm in the garage. Moved outside and roasted 6 more batches. Not sure how that is going to work through the winter.
