What is it you would like to learn about coffee?

I'm a self taught roaster, flying blind, & I'd like to learn more about the subtleties of it.

What do you enjoy about coffee?

1. Aroma 2. Taste 3. Buzz

What is one of the most important things you have learned about coffee?

Lighter roasts (lighter that Peet's or Starbuck's) makes an better/excellent cup.


My name is Richard Neidhardt. I'm retired after 40 years in the construction business. I've been roasting for about 3 years now. I started with a Roastery 3 popcorn popper & graduated to an iRoast. Looking to move up again to a drum roaster.
