A coffee geek tells all

Food & Wine Magazine did a nice article on the basics of coffee. The competitive barista author has some great incite. We know you'll enjoy this.

A quality microroaster confers an “artisianal” or gourmet approach, meaning it pays attention to every detail. Our craft is based on this attitude and technique. This style is also found in a growing community of home-roasters

 Roast Magazine,  a bi-monthly technical trade magazine dedicated to the success and growth of the specialty coffee industry, declares its “Roaster of the Year” in the micro category, which is defined as roasting fewer than 100,000 pounds of coffee annually.
