Drum roasters produce a more even roast with balanced body and brightness. They also roast more coffee at once for those who drink a lot of coffee and need something with easy controls. This kit includes a Behmor 1600 Plus roaster, an 8 lb Green Coffee Sampler (your choice of regular, decaf, or espresso), a roast log and valve bags for storing roasted coffee. For an additional cost, we suggest adding a grinder, and Ken David's classic book, Home Roasting Romance and Revival.$375.50

This is your tried and true, back to the basics, DIY, cowboy style coffee roasting. The Whirley-Pop 6 Quart stovetop popper (roaster) is 100% manual, meaning you need to set the right stovetop heat, crank the popper consistently for 8 to 11 minutes, and dump the roasted coffee into a colander to cool. Both the aluminum and stainless steel models are actually very durable roasters.$41.50
