Stovetop roasting is your tried and true, back to the basics, DIY, cowboy style coffee roasting. The Stove-Pop 6 Quart stovetop popper (roaster) is 100% manual, meaning you need to set the right stovetop heat and crank the popper consistently. Fully stainless steel construction is induction burner compatible, and the direct-drive stirring system makes this a very durable roaster.
- Patent Pending Gearless Flex-drive
- smooth-stir crank handle
- magnetic lid lifting rod
- silicone pouring handle
- clad bottom compatible with induction ranges
- large 6 quart capacity
While this method is completely manual and you will need to adjust the heat, crank the popper constantly, and dump your roasted coffee into a colander in order to cool it, you will appreciate roasting more than 8oz of coffee at a time (the batch capacity of most of our other home roasters).
This method can do a full range of roast levels but even with constant agitation it can take some practice to get even results. Stovetop roasters are better suited for darker roasts (great for espresso). It does produce smoke (more coffee + darker roasts = more smoke) but a good range hood will handle it. You can also use this method on a gas camp stove or other portable heat sources. It makes great popcorn too!
Don't forget to add a thermometer to your order. It's easy to install. Just punch a hole in the popper's lid and insert the thermometer.

It comes with a tip sheet.
Please note that if you add on a green coffee sampler it will be packed inside the popper for shipping.
