    Anybody from Northern California?

    In the general area of Sacramento? I'm hoping some of you might be familiar with some of the roasters around here and who might be willing to share their opinions of some of the blends available from the roasters.

    Thanks in advance, Y'all.....

    You gotta learn how to roast! Then you can have whatever you want, whenever you want it.

    Have you tried Temple? I'm no critic, but they are a top notch roaster in Sacramento. I'm about 70 miles south, been there a couple times. Can't think of any others off hand...will ask at the shop I frequent.

    Thanks for the lead, Redswing. I don't know how that one slipped by me when I was looking. I see Temple has more than one location in Sacramento. I'll definitely check them out. The only other one I found is called Wild Hawk Roasters. I'm presently waiting to hear back from them.

    Thanks again.....

    Hi Baccus, I'm in Sacramento. Temple is definitely a good choice. Eton (their coffee director) is a great guy and loves talking coffee. You can also try Old Soul and talk to Ryan. Insight Coffee Roasters is the newer kid on the block, but they have a lot of knowledge and good offerings. Chocolate Fish Coffee Roasters is also a good choice. And lastly, there is Coffee Works, the oldest game in town. They are old school and roast on a Sivetz. Good guys, but second wave.

    Wow! Thanks so much. I had no idea there were so many in Sacto. That'll keep me busy for a while checking them out. Thanks again.

    Thanks, GKcoffee. That's a great idea. I'd love to visit Seattle again. I used to live there and I love the city and the area. Unfortunately, it's just not in the cards for me at this point.

    Besides, I'm such a newb in the coffee world I'm still trying to figure out the right questions to ask. I'd be completely out of my element up there (or anywhere) amongst folks who know their stuff.

    Marty, there will be plenty of people at the SCCA in a similar position. I don't know how much benefit you'd derive as a consumer, since most exhibitors will be geared to those in the industry. But you'd have lots of fun and learn some new stuff.

    I'm booking my airline tickets today for the show, and will be in Seattle April 9-13. If you do head up, it would be good to meet you.
