    I just can't see how you can keep up if you are truly custom roasting to order. Why are you so secretive of your roasting process/operation? Most people are proud to show off what they do and have. I look forward to hearing of your success.

    We are anticipating filing patents. Hope you get a chance to try our beans.

    I remember years ago. I mean like 10 years or maybe even longer, a guy had these air roasters that you could walk up and choose what you wanted exactly. Blend and roast profile. He said that it was all automated and that it was going to put all of us professional roasters out of business. I mean in theory it looks great. I am not a fan of automation...This is still partly an art.

    Couldn't agree more! We dabbled in automating our roasts in the beginning but came to the same conclusion. Roasting is an art. We're only talking about automation for the blending and such. Roasting still lies in the skill and experience of the roaster.
    Sounds like you have quite a history of coffee experience! How long have you been in the industry?
