Every couple of days Jesse roasts coffee for the house in his roaster. I have been so spoiled drinking such delicious coffee every morning. (You should come over and have a cup with me.)
It is pretty amazing to watch how the beans change in color and how each kind of bean has a different taste and smell. Pretty amazing way to start out the morning- even that means waking up at the butt crack of dawn.
The roaster itself is a little costly, but it really does "pay for itself" in a couple of months (if you drink fair trade delicious coffee.) I think it costs $5-$6 per pound to buy the green beans from Sweet Maria's and coffee tastes as good, or better than La Colombe at a whopping $14 per pound.
