We’re happy to announce the roll-out of our new Roaster Education Series. Join Joey Gleason, of Buckman Coffee Factory & Marigold Coffee, along with Mike Nelson of Guilder Cafe & Junior’s Roasted Coffee. Joey and Mike have developed a dynamic and hands-on lineup of classes, tailored to new and aspiring roasters. Classes can be purchased individually, but are presented as a progressive series to give a beginning roaster a solid base of knowledge from which to grow (discount offered on full series). The following classes are an ongoing series that will be repeated (and refreshed with new topics) approximately every month.
