    Any recommendations on preparations for the beans? I’m thinking I’ll try chemex for each first, then espresso, then moka or Turkish depending on how they profile as espresso.

    I’m in for secret Santa. I just profiled a PNG Kabiufa for the shop. Turned up the dark berry notes and sweetness on it. Finish is short but that’s what people here like.

    A $4/lb raw bean can outperform a geisha if the person roasting takes the time to understand the bean. Problem theses days is that good quality green beans can hide a lot of mistakes in roasting. Just like a talented roast master can take a mediocre bean and elevate it to a gourmet level. Coffee...

    Well I took a hard left from running the coffee shop. To make sure I could pay my employees and keep the business running during this shutdown. Lots of stuff is closing for good in small towns like mine. Lucky for me Target was coming after me for the ETL HR position in the local store and the...

    I’ve only handled them once, they’re fun to play with but the market here isn’t adventurous. For instance I’ve had the same dark roast for 6 years, changed it once and had more complaints in one week than I have 3 years. Folks here want the same thing every day ha. But that’s alright my customer...

    Haha I’m sure John was just influencing things to build suspense! The coffee is solid. I’ll be playing more with it next week. I’m playing with the idea of doing a new recommendation system for coffee and networking across the US, but have to figure out my method before I finalize it. It’s be a...

    It makes perfect sense that you’d like the art side of it given your profession I think. It’s the part that I really enjoy as well. I went into mental health after gaining my degrees in psychology and philosophy, then started working on a masters(which I’ll finish soon), but it’s such a...

    It's definitely a combination of things. The edge that professional roasting equipment provides is mostly in giving you the ability to easily replicate results once you achieve something you like. Depending on how high tech the roaster is you have a lot more info about whats happening inside the...

    I'll be shipping today. Just roasted a bunch of stuff fresh. We are at -35F here currently though. Hoping it doesn't bother the beans to much. The oils in coffee beans hate freezing temps.

    I kinda like the other type of beverage thing. I am also huge into tea, besides doing coffee professionally for the last 16 years haha. Just got back from China a few weeks ago with a serious tea haul too!
