My Christmas present from my husband finally came today, a coffee roaster and 5 lbs of fair trade organic coffee!! As I cannot buy locally grown coffee, I am opting to purchase fair trade, organic green coffee and roast it at home to localize it. I just did my first batch and am about to brew it, I am so very excited to play with this new toy!
After I see if I roasted it dark enough, I will put through a few more batches, enough for today and tomorrow's coffee. I love being so hands on in our food process, home made bread is baking, the pork is slowly roasting and the coffee is ready to go. Productive!
