Using a stove top popper is a very inexpensive way to get started as a DIY roaster. This method allows for the largest batches of fresh, at home roasted coffee. For more information check out our DIY Guide.
It is important to note that the Whirley-Pop is only intended for popping popcorn. Using it to roast coffee will void any warranty from the manufacturer and may shorten the lifespan of the product. Also, it takes a lot of heat to roast coffee, so please use caution to avoid burning yourself. The darker the roast the more smoke that will be produced, so using your range hood to vent the smoke is recommended. The Whirley-Pop can also be used on camp stoves or grills and BBQs with side burners.
