I'm Bruce with Bruce's Brew Fresh Roasted Coffee. I love to drink good coffee and have for years. I grew up on bad coffee because it was the only thing available in the 60s. I learned to drink it because it was something the adults could do, but children could not... so I guess it seemed like a right of passage to adulthood. With coffee's adaptation in the 70s and moving forward to today, I tried some good cups along the way which spurred interest into finding the reasons behind a good cup of coffee.
The interest spurred the purchase of a home roaster along with buying green coffee beans on-line 1-5 pounds at a time and roasting (the roaster would only roast enough for a 10-12 cup coffee-maker). I learned that fresh roasted coffee makes all the difference in the world in a bad, decent and great cup of coffee. My interest grew, so I looked for roasting classes online.
I went to Idaho, took a class, and ended up purchasing a roaster that would roast 1 lb at a time... a pretty expensive investment for a home roaster.
After enjoying the one-pounder for awhile, the interest kept growing and the skills passed the limitation of the roaster...the machine...so, once the ten pound roaster was purchased and delivered, I jumped into roasting larger batches and providing fresh roasted coffee on-line.
I have also learned that even if the beans are fresh roasted, the taste can be harmed in any number of preparation steps leading up to and including the brewing method itself. If there is not an awareness of what each step accommplishes, then you are wearing a metaphorical blindfold making coffee.
There are numerous ways to brew coffee; it all comes down to personal preferences for which one you choose and each method has its own little tweaks to make coffee drinking enjoyment complete.
The winemaker scrutinizes every step in the winemaking process so that expectations of the purchaser is met by simply opening the bottle and pouring. The coffee connoisseur does not have that convenience. You have to make sure everything is right or rely on a coffee shop to have a fresh brewed cup ready just as you arrive...How often does that happen?
