I am a seasoned professional Coffee Roaster. I have helped to setup coffee shops by providing roasting profiles that became their signature roasts. My passion is in finding high quality beans from around the world, figuring out the best roasting profile for that bean and creating a repeatable roasting profile. I also enjoy finding economical equipment to perform the roasting process, so I have experimented with and found several good roasting units. I can teach individuals how to find their own equipment, beans and other related items or become the point of contact in supplying these items. My goal is to teach someone who is interested in coffee roasting so that they may enjoy their own craft or even make money by selling their perfected craft.

This is a great experience for beginner coffee roasters. If you're new to the hobby and want to be introduced to the basics of roasting and get some hands-on experience, this is a great place to start. We were shown multiple methods of coffee roasting (cast-iron pan roasting and tabletop coffee roaster) and given lots of fresh-roasted coffee for the road, as well as a DELICIOUS breakfast. Both Mark and his wife were friendly, easy to talk to, and made us feel right at home.
