A food first for me

This morning I made coffee. Nothing remarkable there, grind some beans, throw them in the bodum, add a pinch of salt and boiling water, steep, pour, enjoy.
But this time, I roasted the beans myself, in a cast iron skillet on the stove top.
As a first attempt, it was fun, and the coffee tasted pretty good: it could have done with roasting a little longer, but for this first time I decided I'd rather have the coffee a little weak than have it over-roasted. I'll make it again tomorrow with a little more knowledge and experience, and make it better.

Yours, bean there, done that,

WOW, I am just not that patient. I hit the drive-thru and hardly wait for it to stop being molten-lava-hot!
