Hi Fresh Roaster,
Nice looking site. The only constructive criticism I would make is that if a site is designed as fixed width rather than flexible, it should at least fit into the minimum resolution it's likely to be viewed at (800px less width of the scroll bar), so as to not force the viewer to scroll sideways to view the whole of the content.
Yours doesn't quite.
I resized my resolution to 800 x 600 and viewed it in Firefox where I had to scroll sideways a bit to view the complete page. Didn't check it in IE which is the most common browser by a long way, but even so, FF is becoming increasingly popular and there are lots of others out there like Opera. It makes sense to check your site in all of them if you want all your visitors to have a good experience. I can't post the URL as a URL as it will be removed from this section of the forums, but browsershots dot org is the site for this.
I'll have to check into that FF issue. Hadn't heard of any problems before. And thanks for the comments. Next week we add the blog, forum and "Expert's Corner". We've got some nice guest columnists set up starting with Robert Barker from Kenneth David's Coffee Review. Get your questions ready!
Something neat is coming soon too... It's called "Fresh Roast Marketplace". I can't say too much just yet but stay tuned. It's in the Fresh Roasted Coffee Menu on the site. All I will say is it will change the way many people buy... uh,... I meant, roast their own coffee, on line!
Anything that can actually get fresh roasted coffee into more places, has got to be a good thing. One thing I found off-putting is the lack of information about the machine itself.....it leaves me thinking what are they trying to hide?
On reading the brochure and looking at some of the roasts, one or two looked a little less than ideal (one looked particularly uneven) page 5 of the brochure, the stuff in the burlap sack).
So maybe a little more information about the machine itself might be a good thing?
