Who else is a coffee roaster?

We have been roasting coffee for a couple of years now and the difference between store bought beans and home roasted is amazing not only price but flavor. I have sent some Christmas presents to some of my long time compadres to taste and the feedback has been very positive so far.  That is the good news. The bad news is that our roaster died so we had to get a new one and the one we had has been on back order for at least 6 months so I had to go to the next step.  This is a hefty investment of $500 but will be worth the $ in the long run based on how much coffee we go thru.

Here is the new roaster



What are the other roasters using and where are you getting beans?

We have been very happy with Sweet Marias beans. Great product, supports the environment and awesome customer service

Who are you using?

I had the iRoast, my second one until it died the other day. Todd Johnson has been trying to buy one for nearly a year and they keep going on backorder

Roasting Beans is less than 50% of the cost of roasted beans so there is an ROI but with the demise of the iRoast it is longer. I have a semi automatic Jura that I use daily for processing roasted beans to coffee and with the new roaster I am a happy camper
