HOW TO BECOME A COFFEE ROASTER?



So, the idea of coffee roasting popped in your head and now you are here… Great to have you and welcome aboard. I imagine your journey is starting out much like mine did, looking up roasters and figuring out where to get green coffee beans. You may also immediately want a large beautiful roaster before finding out how much they actually cost… gulp… Let’s start small!

I truly hope this video was able to bring some value to you. It can be very overwhelming in the beginning trying to find a roaster to cut your teeth on and green coffee that is not in 100-pound sacks. The hardest part is literally not knowing where to look or find the info you need.

Below are the resources I discussed in the video. I have consolidated a very basic list but please be aware there are for more coffee roasters, individuals in the industry, and coffee importers than I have listed below. Please use them to your advantage and learn as much as you can. This coffee roasting journey is truly amazing so let’s enjoy it together. I hope to bring some future value in the videos I have planned so please subscribe to stay in the loop!
