There's a popcorn popper on Amazon that people have been using.

If the air vents are up the side of the chamber it should work fine.

Failing that, I used one of these for 2 years before it packed in:

Only annoyance was that it cut out when it reached a certain heat, so works best with smaller amounts.

I get all my coffee at a micro roaster close to work - the coffee kiosk in Ballsbridge:

Yea people have given it good reviews for roasting coffee only thing is the lid starts deforming over time with the heat but there's a few suggestions on the reviews that seem to fix that.

Sorry to bust your thread but not unrelated anyone recommend a bean to cup machine, I'm reading reviews and some of the cheaper ones are getting slated on Amazon


I can recommend the Delonghi Magnifica.  We've had one for three years making about 6 cups a day and it just keeps going.

I used to grind my own beans, use an aeropress/ Hario v60 but the Delonghi makes it so easy and has proper crema (all of them - even the cheaper ones - have the same 15 bar pump).

15bar pump? 15psi I'd say no?

A pukka expresso machine should run at 15 bar  :o
Remember: The Nationals are just round the corner - time to get brewing

Jesus that's over 200psi

Established coffee shop in the cathedral quarter in belfast sell fresh 3fe coffee if your close by.  i used to buy from hasbean in the uk but they have / had a tie with 3fe and coffees are usually very close and all normally tasty.  hasbean do nice blends.  get a good grinder first and then worry about the rest.     i have a gaggia classic and a iberital grinder myself.  doesn't stop me wanting better setup but it does an ok coffee.

This is mine. You have to tamp as well, but gives something similar to what I get at the coffee shop. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002S51RQG/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awd_x_qnq3xbC0J5GPZ
