I really am amazed how therapeutic coffee roasting is. Long nights and grey days drive me to my man cave. The warm red roaster, the aromas, Randy Newman all give me great pleasure. But nothing like roasting. The beans swelling to their almighty right size, the color dancing along the spectrum, the wonderful bread smell, the honeyed warmth all give such incredible pleasure. And knowing that in a few moments even more pleasure will be in folks’ cups is even more fulfilling. What a great job. I get paid for all of this wonderful stuff. Just amazing.
