Topher,

I have been home roasting for about 3 months and I really want to move to Florida! Is that good enough? All kidding aside, I know you have been looking for a while. Does that mean that there are not many roasters out there, or that most roasting jobs simply don't pay enough to make a mvoe? Just curious.

Topher,

Glad you found someone. I can understand the challenge of finding someone qualified. There are two wholesale roasters in my area -- one in the same town, one 60 miles away. I was interested in learning the trade myself, whether I actually ever used it professionally or not, but I couldn't get either one interested in training me -- not even for free labor. I realize that no one wants to train their competition, but that wasn't my intent. It is difficult to learn a trade that no one is willing to teach!
