Home Roasting in Beantown
Good article in the Boston Globe today on home roasting. While coffee is going stale on the store shelves, you can have the freshest cup in town if you roast your own. I reviewed the iRoast Home Roaster a while back and still enjoy the freshness of the roasts that I do. Since it's summertime, it's a great time of year to get outside and run through a few batches.
The article mentions Sweet Marias as a source for green coffee beans, and I think that they are excellent. I was able to get a nice variety of green beans ready to roast. The flavor differences among the different varieties are stunning and a lot of fun to explore.
I found that it was very easy to get a good roast and then blend a few different beans together to get a coffee that I loved.
