Trying to roast coffee…

Roasting coffee

My local market carries green coffee beans, so I got some to try roasting. So far I’ve been using a dry cast iron skillet in the oven or on the stove top. It’s a bit messy and a lot of fun! The finished product definitely isn’t as good as the stuff that I usually buy, but it’s not bad either.

Backyard cherry blossom.

Cherry blossom

This is our second volunteer cherry tree in the yard. I have no idea where they came from – composted cherry pits? bird poop? Either way, glad I didn’t pull them out when they first popped up.
