    ok..I'm Dale. I use a Fresh Roast 500 after starting with a popcorn popper. I order beans from a few different places. Gen X was my go to site for a while but I think they are gone, at least their site is no longer operating. My beans, I have been on a Costa Rico kick for a while, the prices have been good and the wife and I both like the flavors. Before that, Dominican Republic, same reason.

    Hey everyone! My name is Jeff, I am one of the owners of Batch Nine Coffee Co. out of Florence, SC. Ran a coffee shop for 5+ years, learned to "home roast" a couple of years ago and this spring, launched our roasting company...never thought I'd wind up this far down the rabbit hole! I love a good natural and a good washed coffee, depending on the day. I brew at home with a Kalita Wave, v60, Chemex, and Aeropress pretty frequently.

    Anyhow, check out our web store drinkbatchnine.com. Cheers!

    hello jeff. welcome to our forum. far down the rabbit hole with some great coffee is always awesome! i really hope that you are enjoying roasting.
    I checked your web. nice web and good work, jeff.
    as for the coffee, it is bit high-end side / price wise. your coffee must be great.
    however, just for your information, considering your sales pricing, I think and hope that you can provide us with bit more information about the coffee, since they are micro lot pricing & coffees. more info about the farms and regions. and bit more about back ground story about coffee and farm.

    also, just wondering... do you write your roasted date on your bag?

    and I understand that you charge $5 for shipping, but is there some sort of amount that customers can buy with free shipping? like if you buy $45, then, free shipping... like that?

    thanks and again welcome to forum.

    Well hey. Hi everybody. I'm new here. I see there is this intro thread, and it's a sticky, and I can also make an individual hello thread. So I'll try one of each, and try not to be too repetitive.

    Roasting coffee is my latest hobby. I've been roasting about three years. I've been a life long coffee lover but was always content to make a fresh pot of store brand drip grind in the Mr. Coffee when I needed some. Nothing wrong with that. But about five years ago I found myself in possession of a bunch of coffee gift cards, and thought I'd blow them on some "good" coffee, so i went and tried a few bags of different whole bean coffees. Wasn't real thrilled with the results of any of those as rendered by good old Mr. Coffee, but the hunt was on!

    I got to thinking that my "good" coffee was going to waste in such a brewer, and I ought to have a better way to get all the goodness out of the coffee beans. After some research I decided to try an Aeropress, and I've been using it daily ever since. I've tried some french press, pour-over cone, and electric moka-pot brewing, but always go back to the Aeropress.

    That settled, I started trying every different coffee. Nothing seemed very good at Starbucks to me except their lighter roast Veranda blend. Trader Joes had a few I thought were okay, but what I finally settled on was the bulk whole bean coffees a local Sprouts grocery store. I think the big difference was they were fresher that anything else I was getting. I liked the Organic Peruvian, which was a light roast, the best, but liked most of the light-medium roast coffees they had, single origins as well as blends.

    I thought I was done because I had researched home roasters just enough to see that they were an investment not likely to happen anytime soon with our household budget, but then one day I noticed the part where it says to roast it in a popcorn popper. Had to try that! I picked up an extra Popcorn Pumper on one of my frequent thrift store expeditions, and ordered a pound of Brazilian Volcano coffee from Amazon. I was hooked instantly. I placed my first Sweet Maria's order soon after that. I kept looking for suitable popcorn poppers and assembled a small fleet of them. Some worked better than others, of course. And meanwhile, I was starting to read about how to modify them so they can really roast it just how you want . . .

    Hi there fazendasdutra! Muito prazere!

    Part of my fascination with coffee in the last several years has been a part of an infatuation with the big, beautiful, amazing country of Brazil! Its people, natural wonders, resources, history, politics, culture.... Brazilian music has taken over my collection! I have read some great novels and enjoyed many amazing Brazilian films! Learning a little Portuguese was a challenge for me, but with some crucial help I nonetheless was able to make English subtitles for a favorite film... Quando O Carnaval Chegar (1972). Such a wonderful musical, I watched it many times not knowing what they were talking about, and I like it even more after a friend was able to furnish me a script and I could follow the story.

    And of course part of what is great about Brazil is the coffee! I'm looking forward to getting to know you and learning about your farm and I hope I can try its product!

    Hi CucamongaDan! Muito prazer!

    Brazil is a nice country and I agree. Just seeing to believe =). Portuguese is not easy to learn but you can seeing some videos tips on youtube. The movie "Quando o Carnaval Chegar" is a classic musical about one business man that wanna make a huge celebration about the carnival festival. I'm happy that you're enjoying brazilian culture.

    You're invited to know our farm when you come to Brazil, I can show you all the process to produce a good coffee. We have a cool video on youtube showing our coffee trees. I can't send the link here but if you type "Fazendas Dutra - Institucional" on youtube is the first video.
    If you have some doubt let me know. Thanks.

    And nice to meet you. I'm Pedro Here.

    I do not think that Rio carnival can represent Brazil's culture. as I know, Brazil is even more mixing pot of different races, so I am certain that you have incredible varieties of different cultures.

    by the way, any of us would love to visit brazil to visit your farm or experience different cultures, however, it take over a month to get a visa (as USA citizen) and it costs around $500.00 to get it, not to mention very expensive air fair. I am just hoping that someone up there should get rid of the visa to get into your country.

    thanks and welcome to forum.

    good having you here! Sunday is a hump day for coffee forum, so I would love to hear your very first & educational "coffee knowledge that you have acquired over the years".

    welcome Ron! 199? is there any meaning to it?
