If your local roaster is roasting dark to compete with starbucks she may as well close her doors unless she has her own unique plan of operation, is not afraid of competition and understands that there is enough room for everyone!!
if she roasted oily/dark/not good before starbucks got there lets face the fact that she may have not been a good roaster to begin with...
ya gotta remember that some of these greens even your local roaster gets could be very old and not worth the energy to roast but they buy them to save money and make a few extra pennies. nothing against your local roaster but she may not have the advantage to get better greens.
tuff call Laura.
