A fellow BBQ aficionado has expanded his hobby of roasting his own coffee, as well as his passion for coffee, into a small fledgling business. He has started selling his coffee on the BBQ Brethren forums under the name Roastin' Ronnies Coffee. I decided to buy a pound of his Serengeti Blend beans to just see what a home roaster can do. I normally get my beans from a place called Zocalo Coffee in San Leandro, who have a philosophy that each bean has an optimal roast and that it is never going to be burned to a crisp. So I was curious to see how Ron interpreted his ideals of roasting beans to a level that the bean is optimized. Upon opening the bag, I was hit with a very aromatic nose and no aroma of being in the bag. These were not sitting in the bag for very long. Here is Ron's bag as mailed.
