Hey all, I'm new to the site and am actually doing some research on possibly opening a coffee bar. Right now I'm trying to decide if roasting on-site is better than using a wholesale roaster. For those of you roasting on-site, can you give me some recommendations? How do I find out what roasters are out there? What about pricing? Where do I get the beans? How much are green beans...and anything else you can think of that would be helpful.

Student of the bean...
