roasting coffee beans

Hi For those who want a more ecological way to enjoy coffee- I just read in utne reader that you can buy the shade grown green beans and put them in an air popcorn popper to roast. The green bean will last about a year fresh while roasted ones from a company only last 2 weeks. After you hear the first pop of the beans, wait for the second pop and then turn off the machine. They will be roasted! Each batch will turn out a little differently in taste.
