I subscribed to Roast two years ago and bought all their back issues after 
receiving my first two. It is an incredibly well done magazine with a 
dedication to roasting and origin. Only downside for me is the end of year 
issue (Nov./Dec.) is mostly a listing of vendors. Already know who the best 
purveyor of all things coffee is!

It is an excellent magazine, very well done and I am on my 2nd year of
subscription.  I just received my current issue yesterday and can't
wait to read it.

7) From: Robert Joslin
I've been a subscriber for a couple of years. A good mix of interesting
background articles and more focused informational articles and,
undoubtedly, the most colorful magazine I have ever read!  Just looking at
the advertisements is a cheering experience (and often leads me to rush in
the kitchen to brew a cup!).  The only "complaint" I  have is that the more
technically oriented articles often seem too brief, but then that is a fault
I find with many
magazines.

Excellent, Neal.  One thing I found was that besides how much I 
enjoyed the articles and columns, my friends who have watched me take 
up this passion loved the magazine also.  Some are becoming quite 
educated on coffee, its history, what goes into growing it, selecting 
it (the work Tom does for us), roasting it and then enjoying the 
product of so much labor and love.
I am sure you will enjoy it as much as many of us do.
All the best,
Stephen

Good afternoon everyone: 
I was just looking to see if anyone subscribes to Roast Magazine; the reason I asked is because I recently got a copy in the mail and was possibly looking for some feedback as to whether its beneficial for someone whose a home roaster. 
Thanks,

15) From: Mike Chester
I subscribe to Roast.  This magazine is aimed at the professional, so it is 
not all applicable to the home roaster.  There is, however, a lot of 
information that can be used at any level of roasting.  Overall, I think 
that it is a worthwhile  magazine to subscribe to.

I like it. Been getting it for a few years. One of those magazines you
save. Some issues are gems with good roasting articles. Geared for
business but I find it a nice read. The syrup/flavorings ads are the
biggest negitive ;-{

I get it as well and have the same thoughts stated above. There's good stuff
and then there are articles about things like how to leverage the best
prices per shipping container that don't much matter to me.
The oddest thing is "continued on page __" when that page is the very next
one...

I'm subscriber of the Roast Magazine for about a year, besides the fact that most of the articles are targeting professionals (which I'm not), I will for sure renew it. It is worthwhile, and really like it.

Thanks everyone for your feedback; I like the magazine and think a subscription will be setup tomorrow.

21) From: Stephen Carey
I agree strongly with Silas.  It, for the most part is certainly 
devoted to professionals in the field, but, I still like to learn 
more about the field, why some things are done some ways and some 
other ways, and just basic information.

22) From: Eric Faust
I get Roast Mag and have also written for Roast Mag. I am involved in both
the home roast community and the professional community. There is a lot that
can carry over from both. There is a lot that I have learned from home
roasters that have helped me professionally and there is a lot that Roast
Mag and the professional industry has taught me that have helped me home
roast.
Thanks,
Eric Faust

23) From: Sam49
You can read many articles from past issues of Roast in the on line 
archive.  Only part of each past issue is available in the archive.  
This can give you a good idea of the quality of the content.
I find it somewhat uneven.   Some of the articles are very detailed, 
fact based, logical, etc., while some others are somewhat fluffy and/or 
in need of a good editor who would mark them up and send them back to 
the authors for revisions, more research, etc.
However, even taking that into account, I think it could be well worth 
the subscription price.  I've considered subscribing, but I take enough 
magazines and between those and other things, have more than I can read 
as it is.  In addition, I find that the Sweet Maria's website provides 
me with about 98% of the information I need regarding coffee - from 
green beans to brewing.

Sam,
You make a very good point about the articles being a bit 
uneven.  However, if one has time to read it, as you point out, it is 
a good magazine.  And put in on your coffee table and I promise you 
will have your friends asking for some of your home roasted 
coffee.  It is like, "if there is such a nice looking magazine 
devoted to coffee, maybe what he does isn't just a weird hobby."  Or, 
somthing like that.
But, as you also point out, the archives are always there.  And, like 
you, just trying to keep up in the reading on Sweet Maria's is almost 
a full time job.
