Success: Roasted coffee

So received my 3lbs of dried coffee beans today. And I’ve roasted them. Every video I watched says if you can do popcorn without burning it, you can do coffee beans.

Here’s what the dried beans look like:

So I used my wok – I had just oiled it and cleaned it. Used the inductive appliance to get accurate control over temperature. So cranked it up to 500F and measured out 2 ounces of beans. Whisked it for about 15 minutes. The result is in the pic below – sort of a darker roast when all is done which is what I wanted. Not burned, just roasted. I will say I’ll spend the $200 or so and get a coffee roaster that does 4oz at a time. Additionally found it’s great for seasoning the wok.
Here are the ground beans in the French Press.

Upon looking at the pic – I see it’s more between medium and dark. So I’ve cooled them and put them in an airtight container and tomorrow morning I’ll grind them and make some coffee.

And update – I ground the beans up this morning. Here’s what they look like ground up and in the French Press.

The end result, the absolute most wickedly good awesome mug of coffee we’ve had. In fact I noticed something, it didn’t leave any sludge at the bottom of the mug. I’ll be doing this from now on.
