Hi all. Okay, here's a question for the experts in the room: yesterday I mentioned branding my own label. Now, on the one hand I could find a roaster/supplier and rebrand. Another option is to have my own roasting operation. What do people think the benefits and drawbacks of the two approaches are? Do you have to produce a significantly higher volume of beans for sale to make it worthwhile as a roaster? Any idea how much capital startup you'd need to become a roaster? Thanks.
