Coffee roasting is a meticulously detailed process. Converting green coffee into a delicious roast takes time and precision but most importantly, it requires complete control. As with most things in this modern age, coffee roasting machines have gone on to become more automatic, more computerized in order to produce coffees at a faster pace. But coffee roasting is an art form that benefits from complete, personal control. Coffee roasters are the engines that propel any coffee shop forward. Make sure yours is built to last.

I’ve been in coffee ever since—seen part of the 2nd wave, the 3rd wave, and the birth of the new wave, whatever it is.” Living with his coffee-farming family in Nicaragua until 1985, when the family escaped the revolution to Fort Worth, Garold has a unique perspective on coffee.
