green coffees for the home roaster

in colonial times there was only home roasting, usually in a pan, or a "ball" roaster on a spit over an open fire. In the early days of the republic professional roasters began to appear, and after the Civil War large manufactories and brands emerged in many cities. In most parts of the country home roasting days had been over for generations when, in the 1970’s, new interest arose in roasting your own. There have been books written on the subject. Among the best of these is Home Coffee Roasting by our old friend, Ken Davids (St Martin’s Griffin, 2002 ) http://www.amazon.com/Coffee-Roasting-Revised-Updated-Edition/dp/0312312199 

 

buying good beans is essential for turning a good roast, and bringing a good cup to your lips. my grandmother Dora (a baker of renown in her generation) used to say , “if you put good things in, good things will come out.” here you will find a strong selection of the very best obtainable green coffees, by the pound, for your personal roasting pleasure.  -DNS (coffeeman)
