I have roasted over an open fire while in southern Ethiopia.  We used a pan
shaped much like a shallow wok and used "sticks" from a tree to stir.  It
was hard to keep the roast level from reaching Vienna but with some practice
and "learning when to let it coast" it was quite drinkable.   I believe we
roasted Yirgacheffe.
