Stumpjack Roastery?

As some of you know, we've been conducting intense training sessions (that is, playing around) with roasting our own coffee. We got a great little machine, a Nesco Roaster (thanks to our friend Don Kozlowski...thanks Don!) that is really designed for the home roasting enthusiast. But we've been working the little beast like one of Hannibal's pack elephants and it's held up beautifully thus far. It takes a lot of green coffee beans to make a batch big enough to sell in the shop. It's an enjoyable process and I'm thinking of going bigger with it sometime down the road. For the time being, however, you might be seeing a few official Stumpjack in-house roasted coffees on the counter sometime soon, albeit it very limited quantities.

The Nesco...we call her "Ol' Smoky"
