Training wheels off - Roasting on our own!

By Carole Sprunk November 17, 2019 translation missing: en.blogs.counts.comments_with_count

Hi friends,

It's been 2 months since my last post. For weeks now I've told myself that I need to sit down and update my blog with recent happenings. We've been a bit busy coming into the holiday season! 

So many wonderful changes to tell you about! We welcomed our very first coffee roaster to the business. Black Betty is an Ambex YM-5 and she is helping us scale up our business and reduce costs. We now have our own manufacturing space in LaVista! My husband got an upgrade from CGO (Chief Grinding Officer) to CRO (Chief Roasting Officer). Meanwhile, I'm trying to manage scaling up on a budget. That part sucks, BTW.

While my husband was learning the ins and outs of roasting our coffee, he was told that at some point, he would drop the green beans without having closed the release for roasted beans. Sure enough, a few batches in and green beans dropped into the roaster and immediately into the cooling tray on top of roasted beans that were cooling. Lesson learned. I have to admit, after a long day, all I could do was laugh. Heck, if that's the biggest problem of the day, I call that a good day! 

As we go into the holiday season, I want you all to know how thankful I am for each of you. Consumers, critics, readers, supporters and even haters. I love you all. You are what push me to do more, be more and give more! 

Have an amazing week ahead!

Cheers,

xoxo - CS

  • How long do you keep the green coffee in the barrel before roasting?
