    ATT: Pro roasters and baristas

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    As a roaster I am constantly keeping my mind ticking about coffee by trying other peoples roasts and blends. I am however becoming sick of paying for coffee every week when I have 100s of kilos going through shop every day.

    So, calling all roasters or baristas who work in a roastery. Im keen to swap beans. I thought if we had a pool of people, each prepared to send out 250 grams to each participant every week, then we could try a variety of coffees and roast/blend styles that we may never try. We would each only have to end beans out to x many people every x weeks, you get the drift.

    Anyway, if anyone that fits the above would like to try it lets get this going.

    Hi Dennis, Its funny but this post of yours made me think. 3 years ago when we first opened we were counting the grams as we were half way to our first target of 100 Kilos a week. Now the situation is the same but the target is 1000 Kilo/week. All things in time.

    Why not broaden it to all roasters rather than just pro roasters?

    Alex
    Im only speaking for myself here.

    If I can draw an analogy Alex, a chef is more likely to seek the assistance of another chef to improve their skills. My reasoning for this is that both chefs, or in this case roasters, already have a common base to work from. Its our chosen profession, we use similar equipment, etc. I hope Im not mis-quoting, though I seem to recall Jason once having used the term, "My bretheren roasters", or words to that affect, and thats exactly how I feel toward other pro-roasters.

    By no means am I denegrating home-roasters - just keep in mind that for you its a hobby, while for me its a livelihood.

    Theres no reason why CSers cant follow suit with the idea and share roasts with each other.
