We are looking for an apprentice coffee roaster in the South Florida. We are located in Deerfield Beach(near Boca Raton). The person we are looking for does not need to have any roasting experience at all...just a true passion for coffee. Being mechanically inclined is good and having a sense of humor is a must. I am not going to sugar coat this, this position is physically challenging and there can often be long hours of work involved. This is a great opportunity for but we always have a great time. We are an EOE and drug free work place. We do background checks and drug test on all potential employees. If interested please contact me at topherroaster@gmail.com

Well a year and a half later I finally found an apprentice! Thanks to this forum I found him...or should I say he found us. It is going to be a great experience on both ends! Will keep y'all posted!

Congratulations Topher! I'm glad you were finally able to locate someone. I thought your next step would be to have a reality TV show.

Hey topher, I finally booked my trip to Boca. I'll be there Friday 3/2 to Monday 3/5. If you are roasting on Monday and if you have time, I love to stop by and play in your coffee lab and be an one day apprentice. Oh...I don't clean chaff I don't clean stack and I don't scrub blowers...those are for your real apprentice.

Outstanding Topher. I wish you all the best. Teach um'well. To your apprentice, watch him very close, he's kinda old and now that he has someone to carry him, you'll be workin your tail off :p :wink:

HEY Topher! How is doing your apprentice? Is he ok? Does he roast coffee? or only you do? I myself dont let anybody to roast coffee but robustas.
One question: What is the average salary of a skilled roaster in US?
