When you are making your own coffee at home, there are some tools that you might want to consider purchasing.  I’m sure that if you are like most of us, you will want to wake up to that perfect cup of brew!  Since you’re brewing your coffee at home, everything is within your control so you can have that great cup of joe. 

To get that perfect cup of brew, I suggest you start by roasting your coffee.  It’s probably a good idea to try different coffee roasts to see which one you like best.  It’s also a good idea to try different kinds of coffee beans.  The kind of coffee beans you roast as well as the amount of time you roast them is up to you.  You will need to experiment to discover what’s best for you!

1.  FreshRoast SR500 Automatic Coffee Bean Roaster

One tool I think you will really like and find useful is the FreshRoast SR500 Automatic Coffee Bean Roaster.  This roaster can roast beans for about 20 cups of coffee in less than 10 minutes.  It has three temperature settings for perfect roast control and has a variable convection fan control that ensures gentle, efficient circulation.  This roaster is easy to use and it roasts any kind of coffee, including espresso.  It is an affordable way to get a roasted cup of java that tastes great!
