While V2 is under construction, the mother-in-law cottage behind our house has become the “sample roasting shack”. The kitchen shelves and drawers are filled with green bean samples and our lovely 100g Probat sample roaster stands proud on the counter. Chris is the master of the sample roaster and the man behind the great coffees we purchase. He had a marathon sample roast going on this week with 23 batches of the winning Colombia Cup of Excellence coffees and some new Sumatras and Kenyans. When we know Chris is sample roasting, we get pretty excited! There is nothing more fun than cupping new coffees and making decisions on what to purchase next. Being a small company, we are so fortunate to be able to pick up a few bags here and there of some really special beans.
