Wow! Can't say that I can add much more to those points except to say, each person that I encounter who wishes to get into this business, does not lack the spirit, just the proper assistance. It's true we do have a lot of roasters in the state of Washington, and most are very good. What it really boils down to is, which one can provide you with most if not all of your needs. Most roasters that I personally know only roast for every market and don't work with you on developing your plans, operations, private labeling, and the like. Whereas since this industry is always evolving, I feel that some roasters (maybe not all) may want to change with the industry. We found this to be true a number of years ago, that is why we concentrated on this sector of the market. That's why I really enjoy this forum because it helps to stay in touch with this ever changing face of coffee. Rather it be creating new blends, or new ideas. But whatever the reason, keep it coming :wink:

My roasting company, The Bean Collection is one of Seattle's finest. I would love to meet with you to discuss your options. We offer some of the most competitive pricing in the area as well as private labeling and business consulting. The Bean Collection ships within 2 business days to assure optimal freshness. Our coffee is amazing! Please call me at 206-618-1280 or send me a quick email when you're here and we'll chat.

Coffee Guy is right about the long-term effect of marketing on a public misperception, but for a smaller company it's ok to attach to a stereotype or even another, larger, brand. Pepsi is smaller than coke and that is why we see pepsi advertise with coke in their commercials, but you never see coke put pepsi in theirs.
