    Colombia: Travel on hold, but buying is not

    Traveling to visit farms and select new harvest coffees has been curtailed. Well, it's actually stopped altogether. But that doesn't keep us from pursuing the rigors of the selection process. We haven't been traveling but it doesn't change the way we work that much

Fresh Roast SR300 and SR500

 

At long last we have new air roaster to sell, the Fresh Roast SR300 and SR500. Both are an improvement over the Fresh Roast +8, though imperfect machines.  The units work fine as is, and with a bit of technique  (either stirring the coffee with a spoon or switching to cool to slow the roast) you can get a good even roast.  We have more details on this page and some videos.  Why take these extra steps?  Well, if you have not noticed,  we are sort of perfectionists when it comes to coffee.  We have high standards, and want the coffee our customers drink to be everything it can be,  every bit as wonderful and delicious as what we taste. From our perspective, this is basically the story of home roasting, adapting equipment and techniques to get the results you want.
