Roast Magazine: Micro Roaster of the Year - Conscious Coffees
If you haven't checked out Roast Magazine, you should - they offer a great set of articles that are focused on the coffee trade primarily, but also articles that regular consumers might enjoy too. The most recent magazine has their awards for Roaster of the year including Micro Roaster and a Macro Roaster categories.
The Boulder, Colorado based Conscious Coffees roaster is this year's winner as they expect to roast about 85,000 pounds of all organic coffee this year. The six person operation takes such steps as to deliver their coffee all over town by bicycle - a work looking bicycle with a cargo container on the back (hit the link below to see an image). The roaster also puts their coffee in steel, not the throw away plastic laminated bags that many sell their coffees in. the move, which happened in 2009, allowed them to get into a reusable and recyclable packaging material that also protects their product well.
