    I can’t believe how good popcorn poppers can roast coffee. I was a bit sceptical, but did test this idea yesterday.
    Got some green coffee beans from smallbatchroasting. Used my daughter popcorn popper 10 attempts 50g coffee each. Just pulled shot from mexico finca autora and Iam amazed how good it is. Gonna get my own popcorn popper today and will do some modifications. Look at the picture, on the left side my roast beside rave signature blend on the right.

    Make sure you dimmer is rated, it's harder to get a dimmer for the full 2000+Watts on your roaster than say a light fitting.

    I use PWM on a big old solid state relay personally.

    As per other folks here, I bought a Severin popcorn maker, after a read here for recommendations.

    £15 eBay link here.

    Used it a couple of times before getting a second hand Gene Cafe and the air-flow is really full on and the beans were roasting in around 9-10 minutes. No need for a dimmer or any mods on this model - you're really good to go. The only thing I had to do was to take some stainless gauze I had, and shape it into a cylinder to replace the hood. The beans kept on popping out without this. If you're getting into roasting, you'll get some really good results for very little with this bit of kit.
