Roastin'

Jon’s started roasting his own coffee beans inspired from his good friend Kyle. Hey’s going to jimmy-rig jerri-rig a popcorn maker into a roaster. (I misspoke and called it jimmy-rigging but Jon told me Jerry does it. Jimmy’s apparently not involved. ;-)) Anyway, here’s some photos of the roasting. Pretty fun!
