  3. These sound like mistakes/misjudgements that would not be particular to coffee roasting. Just saying.

  5. I am just curious about how you went about finding a place to home your business. I see that it says home roasting but your space looks commercial. How did you go about this process?

  11. Thank you for making this video! I have the vision of starting a roastery and this video helped put some things into perspective. Part of my vision is to hopefully/ideal have the roastery on my home reservation. We have a lot of space that can/needs to be utilized and another source of income for our residents would be beneficial as well. I’ll be looking at more of your videos to get a better idea of how to make this work. I would also love and input for how to get things moving. Thank you all!

  13. EXCELLENT VIDEO… Great Information
    Thank you both for sharing this video.
    NOTE:
    Your background music was a little too loud, making it hard to hear and understand you at times. We don't need background noise, We just want to HEAR y'all TALK…

  17. The Fresh Roast Sr 540 is a great sample roaster – only does 4 ozs. I do sample roasts in that and then do 1lb roasts in a Behmor with the winning profile.

  30. This video was on point! the saying is "you don't know what you don't know" & so many unexpecteds have come up along the way but you just have to persevere & figure it out. A lot of the things we want to do have to wait until the money's there. Legalities is a whole other conversation for another day but that slows things down by weeks or months. Good on you for putting out this video. Cheers!

  34. Thanks for the great vid! I can't stress how thankful I am for coffee and the community it brings. Side note, I am extremely blessed to be able to run a business out of my home! Something I see way too often is people tying to start a business from scratch and they rent or buy a space that's way to high of overhead.

  37. Good luck to you guys up in Bellingham, WA, beautiful seaside town close to Vancouver. Hopefully you get lots of orders from the UW. Yeah, not easy setting up your own roaster business, I have seen others failed. Planning, money and marketing require lots of energy and patience. I am doing my own roasting as a hobby and have a small following from work and friends. Most people who consume coffee does not understand how much time and efforts that roaster put into prepare that coffee. I personally hand sorted all defects before the roast. I use my suppliers' cupping note as a reference and request the samples according to my customers' profiles. I have a Diedrich 2.5Kg roaster so that I can perform personal orders. So far I am having lots of fun and learning ins and outs about roasting coffee. I wish you folks the best and make sure that you watch your cash flows. Cheers.

  40. Thank you for the valuable information. I don't want to be a roaster, but offer a line of quality coffee that allows me to drop ship to customers and then hold my own inventory that sells successfully and then grow from there hoping to have my own roaster business.

  43. Hi there here is Yat who also running a cafe in Hong Kong. Recently I started a coffee bike project and planning to become a micro-roaster as well.

    Personally feel like if you haven't get into the coffee industry long enough, more unexpected things could happen as "Experience" is the key to help you grow and make things easier.

    Anyways, thanks for the video and hopefully we could share some coffees in the near future.
