Starter Kit – Iron Skillet Coffee Bean Roaster

Out of Stock

Receive 2 FREE pounds of  green coffee beans with Cast Iron Skillet Roaster purchase: Costa Rica, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.

This is the perfect value-priced option for the new (or just curious) home-roaster. A nice “analog” option in our digital world, this kit has everything you need to begin your roasting journey – even the wooden stirring spoon!

Note: roasting beans produces some smoke so use in a well ventilated area.  A fan blowing out a nearby window or an exterior venting stove hood work well.  

Step by step directions

  • Preheat the cast iron skillet on medium to high heat
  • Add beans in a single layer. Stir constantly.
  • In about 6-9 minutes you’ll hear first crack when the skin (chaff) separates from the bean– light roast
  • Right after 1st crack ends (about 90 seconds) – medium roast. Roast moves quickly now – WATCH CLOSELY.
  • 2-3 minutes later 2nd crack – dark roast.
  • At desired shade (or a little before) remove the skillet and beans from heat source.
  • CAREFULLY dump the roasted beans into colander or metal pan – BEANS ARE VERY HOT!
  • Toss back and forth outside to remove chaff and cool beans.
