    Texas Roast

    I don't work for Texas Roast but I am a customer. I've been drinking coffee at artsy-fartsy coffee houses for 15 years and I have not come across as good a coffee as Texas Roast. I called the company to ask how they do it...he told me they use a special machine that allows him to roast without burning and it is very consistent. The consistency is why I keep buying his coffee online. I can't get it anywhere else. But, if I come across one of these machines from Fresh Roast, then I'd consider it.

    The reference to wine was simply an analogy that can and will change the coffee industry. If you look at all of the large winery's, they all started small and took over a percentage of the market. There are some very, very good mid-sized wine makers out there creating a good product and selling it at reasonable prices. So, (drawing the parallel) why not do it with coffee?

    I'd love to pay $8 or $9 a pound for excellent coffee instead of $13 or $14 a pound...wouldn't you?

    I went to check out Texas Roast..the reason I asked if you worked for them was their site says nothing about their roasting process. You sure know a lot about it. I can tell you this..you might think their coffee is good..their site needs work. First off they are seeling coffee for $9.95. $9.95 for what? It does not specify quantitiy. The only place it speaks of weight is the international sampler. The sampler sells for $35.95. It consists of 6 half pounds...which works out to about 6 dollars a half pound. You said ," I'd love to pay $8 or $9 a pound for excellent coffee instead of $13 or $14 a pound...wouldn't you?" but in the sampler you are paying close to that...$12 a pound. They could also use some work on their packaging..you might be just a customer but I am having trouble believing that you do not work for them..or own it.

    Wholesale Customer

    I buy wholesale and resell it in my store. I spoke to the owner and he told me all about this machine. You should stop roasting coffee and be a detective...you're pretty good! See, if you had a machine like this you could let it handle the roasting and devote more time to the detective role.

    Im glad you think this is funny...as to the time I wasted to prove you were spamming..trust me I don't think its funny. As to my machines...umm...I am completely happy with them. I roast over 25,000 lbs a week and honestly do not think that this machine can keep up with our demand...and to be honest I personally perfer the taste of drum roasted coffee.

    Topher, the machine in question was not designed for wholesalers or people roasting 25,000 pounds of coffee. Although I do know that using our laser would make you a better roaster. Sorry though, we don't sell them! It was designed for the retailer who wants fresh coffee everyday, doesn't want to hire a roastmaster and doesn't want to pay for a your insurance, employees, worker's comp and other overhead and profit. It eliminates a whole distribution channel and all of the costs associated with a third party. The machine was designed for the cafe owner, grocery store owner and maybe even a high traffic hotel, casino or restaurant who doesn't want to pay the low volume premium from the average wholsaler when he/she can get the freshest possible product, no waste and even a little in-store theatrics and attention.. all for half the price they pay now.

    And BTW Topher, we are a drum roaster. We're just able to roast in your living room without anyone getting upset! :P And it's on wheels. After that you can unplug it and roll it on out if you'd like!

    so this machine will replace the"roast master" eh? So it can buy and cup coffee..pretty impressive
    I have to agree, this is SPAM flavored. I'm not judging the merit of the roasting method, just the merit of the post. This should at least be in the B2B and there is a URL nicely dropped in the message.

    I'm moving this to B2B.

    What is one of these machines going to sell for? Please just provide the price and no rhetoric.

    We don't sell them. We provide the equipment and maintenance at no cost and users pay between $1-2 roasting fee depending on volume. There are currently no minimums and no commitments. We only ask that the user supply an electrical outlet and proof of business casualty insurance.

    So is that $1.00 to $2.00 per lbs of coffee beans? Any idea of what the power consumption would be for a typical operation?

    Say I roast 1,000 lbs of coffee beans a week, how much am I paying in roasting fees and how much power is the machine going to use typically to roast 1,000 lbs of coffee?
