OK, so I am opening a roastery here in the Los Angeles area sometime this month (well I just finished the lease negotiations). I have been planning this for some time and am really excited!
I have a few questions that maybe some of you could answer for me:

1. When installing the roaster (24 kilo for now), do I need to contact the local fire dept. for permits? I cant seem to get a straight answer from anyone, lol

2. What type of problems/surprises should I expect after starting?

3. Who knows where to find an inexpensive grinder?

4. is it normal to lose all kinds of sleep and start to drink more? :shock:
