This Week's Tip!

The Best Coffee Beans on the Planet! - We are coffee fanatics and have been roasting our own at home for years thanks to our friend Steve Murphy who introduced us to home roasting. Why do we do it? For the same reason people choose to bake bread at home, to make their own jams and jellies, to can their own vegetables and the brew their own ales and beers. It feels better. There’s something soul-fulfilling in making it yourself. It is pretty simple to do, takes about 10 minutes of your time and once you have the hang of it, nothing, and I mean nothing, tastes as good as coffee just off the roaster.

You can buy an inexpensive home roaster and the green beans to get started at They have a great site and are very helpful when you need advice. But be careful, because once you try it, there’s no turning back!
