It’s an air roaster based on, as the name states, the air popcorn poppers people have used to roast coffee for decades.
Popper uses the same type of roast chamber as the air popcorn poppers, and adds heat control and fan speed control, as well as a timer and cooling cycle.
Popper offers easy control of heat and air flow, for those who want to make manual adjustments during the coffee roasting process. This is a moderately-priced machine that roasts coffee evenly, and offers simple, intuitive user control. We suggest roasting 90-100 gram batches (3.5 oz) for best results. By default, Popper starts with a default 7 minute roast cycle and a 3 minute cooling cycle, although these can be adjusted at any time when roasting. Popper has no pre-programmed roast settings, but you can manually profile roasts using the heat and air control knobs.
