I went back to my 40th high school reunion this last weekend and spent a lot of time with my best friend, who lives in Chicago. He brought some of his own coffee that he roasted. He has a coffee roaster at home. He told me that he goes to this site called Sweet Maria's to purchase the beans. He reads about the farmers and the techniques they use. He brought some with him and I must say, it was really good. I had no idea people do this. Makes sense though. People make wine and brew beer at home. I made Kombucha at home for awhile. Anybody else do this? I am thinking about starting up. Seems like it might be fun and I drink a good bit of coffee. Would appreciate any advice.
