Topic: CCR HT out of mothballs:-) (3 msgs / 90 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Less and less do I qualify as a home roaster. Realized it's been a month or
so since I've roasted. At home in the garagae that is. Just roasted a couple
259g batches but they aren't for home use either but rather for cupping.
(IMV from two sources) Saturday's scheduled 3pm cupping is going to be
sweet. Panama Esmeralda Gesha #5 (in the line up every public cupping this
month since it's "Esmeralda Month" at Paradise Cafe) the two IMV's and
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere DP. (The Kochere is decent but not in the same
league as the IMV.)
On another note finally found another location for the USRC 3k, signing the
lease tomorrow. Roughly triple the floor space as at Paradise Café so ple=
nty
room for roasting including greens storage and then in the next couple
months expand it's use for another Cafe. (Debi will be way happy primary
greens storage no longer at home! And need the floor space back at Paradise
for seating badly. The new location not the one I'd been looking at, that's
being used as office space by the building owner plus leased couple desk
spaces to others while his other building is being built. Will add that
location likely 12 to 18 months. By that time should be ready to upgrade to
larger roaster primary roast location and move the USRC 3k there.
Don't be mistaken like I'm getting rich or something, haven't paid myself a
dime since May, just employees get paid and always on time! =

It's that serious dedication up front that will pay off in the long run.  
Sometimes dreams have to be viewed from a distance to get the full effect.

Mike,
I don't own a retail business, I have a consulting business. But in one way it's the same. I'm the last one to get 
paid. Everyone and every bill gets paid first. But for all the long hours and the stress I wouldn't change it and go 
back to working for someone else.
