Looks like a nice little setup, never tried it though. My air popper is just so easy, no building required

Ya know, you can do it in a pan on the stove top; you just have to use a pan that you don't use for anything else. Our former land lady is from Italy, and she taught my wife. It's too easy!

I've done the popcorn popper method and it works well but you have to keep those beans moving and it has a small roast amount. I have a heatgun that has a setting for 500f I may try that. I guess if you can heat up your beans to 450 (?) and keep em moving your golden and can roast in darn near anything. non flammable of course

I would rather not have chaff rolling out of that into a hot flame in my kitchen. With halfway decent hot air poppers and a little care and feeding, I think this is more a solution looking for a problem. I like the drill rotisserie idea though, and have seen that kind of rig before.

Pete has a good point, the chaff can catch on fire so take precautions.
