I am just getting into home roasting after trying some of my Dads coffee during his last visit. It is amazing the difference between fresh roasted coffee and the stuff you buy at the store. I ordered several pounds of green coffee beans which are going to be delivered today, and an I-Roast, which won't be here until thursday, oh the horror. Is there a good way to roast some before my I-Roast arrives? I have read instructions on roasting them in a frying pan, a popcorn popper, and in the oven. Anyone have any experience with any of those methods?
I have an air popper, but it is the kind with the perforated bottom, which is not recommended for roasting.
I also have a convection oven, which should circulate the hot air nicely, if I choose to do it that way.
I also have an electric wok that will go to 450 degrees F.
or should I just use a skillet?

Who caught his death by drinking cold small beer;
Soldiers, take heed from his untimely fall,
And when you're hot, drink strong, or not at all." --Epitaph on a soldier's grave
