    Any Local Roaster near Detroit Michigan?

    Great Forum! Thanks for all the useful eyeopening information.

    I am currently putting my business plan together for a coffee shop near Detroit.

    For now, I am looking for any information about roasters located near the Detroit Area (Oakland and Macomb Counties).

    I am just trying to get an idea about the local roasters' reputation and abilities.

    Maybe someone would like to recommend a roaster?

    Thanks

    Hmmm....all the good roasters are in the South!

    Hey, have you given any thought to buying a roaster and learning the craft yourself? It's more money and time to train, but in the end your shop would have a special draw with roaster fresh coffee.

    In any case, there are several roasters in Michigan. This excerpt appeared in another post here on the coffee forums:

    "Many places around here use Paramount Coffee out of Lansing. Frankenmuth Roastery in Frankenmuth,MI (South Saginaw County) Cadillac Coffee Co. is used around here a bit (Cadillac, MI), as is Coffee Express Co. out of the Detroit Area."

    Hope that helps - good luck!

    Thanks for that information

    I will be opening in the fall of this year. I don't have the time now to learn how to roast but that is on the business plan for the 2nd year.

    For now I just need a reliable and quality roast local to my area. I knew about some on the list but your reply really helped add a few more...Thanks.

    You may want to call Allen at Zingerman's Coffee Company in Ann Arbor. Zingerman's has been a favorite of mine for years and I've heard lately that Allen is doing a lot of great things with the wholesale coffee company: http://www.zingermanscoffee.com
