A friend of mine approached me about coffee roasting -- something I've been doing at home as a hobby on a very small scale for a while. He wanted to establish a slightly larger operation than what I had going.Two months later, I've got a 6kg drum roaster on the way and over 400 lbs of coffee beans to start. I've been…See More

I'm in no less financial debt than I was before I took this job. I'm no healthier. I've been called dumb too many times…See More
