This forum is amazing! Everyone is so genuinely helpful. I am also looking to open a coffee shop in a small town in central PA. I have a partner and we are almost done wth our business plan. I am struggling with cash flow projections right now but have found a ton of helpful hints on the site. Since we are pretty far from any reliable commercial roasters and quality is our biggest concern we are considering roasting in house. There are two of us which allows one to focus on roasting and one on drink prep, although we will each teach the other as we go. I have been roasting at home for about 6 months now and I am getting pretty consistent. Any reasons why this is a bad idea? Also topher I would love to see that training manual you wrote. Thanks in advance!
