Incredible Discovery

I usually enjoy each Origin coffee for its' own unique qualities and leave blending alone unless I'm searching for a combination to enhance a particular aspect like taste sustainability of our Preppers Bulk blend.

Thanks to the unusually cold weather we've had this year I have spent what extra time I've had playing with new coffee blends. Some were pleasant and some were quite good, but a couple of these unique blends have been outstanding. 

The first of these outstanding blends was a serendipitous discovery of amazing complexity and balance of characteristics that led Donna to ask before I had even taken a sip "What's in that blend? It's Really Good!". We have decided to call this our Signature blend and should ad it to the Green Beans offerings soon.

The Second was planned and tweaked to be The Best Breakfast Blend I could make if I could use whatever Coffee I wanted. I have long enjoyed Breakfast blends and wanted to really accentuate the crisp yet smooth nature and not too heavy with a sweet clean finish of the blend.

No set of blends would be complete without an Espresso blend and I put a delicious twist on this one I think you'll enjoy.

Possibly one more that has been so good and so complex we're not sure what to call it, this one changes personality more than most as you change the roast. We may take a few weeks to work on this one, testing various roasts and resting times before coming up with a name.

Look for our new blends on the Green Coffee Beans page in April.




Home Coffee Roasting Benefits #4

Home Coffee Roasting supports lots of Small businesses much more than the one or two large businesses that supply large National Quantity coffee.

Home Coffee Roasting is driven by you and me by buying select top quality great tasting coffee rather than the heavily advertised same in every Can huge quantity stuff in a grocery store.

We are buying small lots of coffee that the Growers and Processors have put extra effort into to achieve a higher Grade and better taste than the norm. Large quantity Corporations won't use this better coffee because it costs more, and why make it better when people buy mainly for price and Advertised impressions (that Guy with a Donkey is an Actor, I make my living tasting coffee).

Small high Quality Growers and Processors EARN a better price for better taste which also benefits their Employees and Communities for improved Quality inputs. Small Exporters, Importers, and Retailers (like me) make their livings by searching out and offering only these high Quality Specialty Grade better tasting coffees. We work hard to find the best coffee at a great value even if we can only get a few bags of a particular bean. With any crop as the quantity goes up the quality goes down. 

Home Coffee Roasting Benefits #3

We source, buy, and sell only great tasting high quality Specialty Grade coffees that have been carefully grown and processed to produce the best coffee possible. Growers and coffee Processors take extra care and will even separate out the best beans into smaller Lots to achieve a higher price. 

Large National coffee roasters require quantities far too large to even consider these high quality higher cost select small Lot Coffees.

This is Classic small business Capitalism; the Growers and Processors who produce better coffee earn a better living and are able to pay better wages for superior efforts of their workers.

Home Coffee Roasting Benefits #2

Guys Really! I shouldn't have to tell you this one but here goes. 


Why do some of us stand outside in the cold watching a huge pot of boiling oil that may just burn our house to the ground on Thanksgiving?

Why do we spend hours smoking Ribs or a nice Brisket?

Why do so many of us smell like charcoal a good part of the year just to cook a couple of steaks and a pile of hamburgers?




Is it because we have to eat? 

We could eat something from a box. We could eat something from a bag.

We could drink something somebody else cooked, who knows when, or worse put in a can, but why?


The sense of accomplishment we get when we make something great, especially when we enjoy it with Family and Friends!

Fresh Roasted Coffee is simply better!  


Roasting great tasting coffee can be as easy as popping corn.
