I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.
New coffee is available through the web site now.
Decided to take a look at what other shops were selling the coffee I'm currently tasting for and wow, it's all over the place. The first four roasters I checked had prices (different bag sizes, adjusted to per pound rates) ranging from $18.50 for something that's way too light (opinion) for this coffee up through $40, which seems a bit insane given that I know what they're paying for this. I won't be pricing it the cheapest, but it'll be on the lower side of that range for both medium and dark.
The new coffees from Yemen and Java along with Mocha Java Blend are now available to buy on the web site. Hopefully I'll be able to add the new coffee from Costa Rica tomorrow.
One of the bags of coffee that arrived today had a sticker on it saying that it was for a different coffee roasting company. I don't know if I know anybody who works there now, but someone who used to work pretty high up there is the person who asked me to develop a new profile roasting class. That class ended up getting delivered pretty much unchanged by dozens of instructors around the world for about a decade.
