Coffee Shrub

Coffee is a multi-stemmed, gangly, awkward, diminutive shrub. Coffee Shrub is dimunitive too; a micro-seller of coffee serving shops that roast. We sell green coffee in batches that equal roughly a bit less than 1/2 or 3/4 of a traditional jute bag packaged in Grain-Pro lined bags, at either 50lbs. or 100lbs. You have the convenience of thorough, descriptive reviews as a starting point for your own tasting notes and also relevant information about the farms, including images that you can use to promote the coffee. Look over our coffees and see if any of these offerings would complement your current list.

Rwanda + Burundi = Espresso Perfection When considering "African coffees", I tend to think of exotic flavor profiles and pronounced acidity, and rightfully so. So many of coffee's crown jewels are produced in equatorial regions in East Africa and...

The New Quest M3s Quest recently released their new M3s roaster, a revamp of the original M3 model, but with a couple of new features. At 7 1/8" across, on it's face, the upgrades appear to be minor. But a closer look reveals a chaff drawer at the...

We used this machine as a test model about 6 times while deciding if we were going to carry Sonofrescos. We really like it but it's starting to get a little dusty, so we decided to discount the price and find it a nice home. It's in prefect working...

I like to take pictures, I like to travel, and I sell coffee. On its face, myself and many others do the same in a straightforward way, especially when we go to a specific farm or mill where we are buying. We point our cameras at the farmer, at...

Hi Jesse, We're generally charging to about 400 on the analogue. The first batch will go fast, which is normal. I find consistency by the 3rd batch, so it's ideal to wait until at least the 2nd batch to drop the coffee you actually want to roast, with round 3 being my preferred starting point. I hope this makes sense! Best, Dan(view)

Thanks for the info, I am very interested in the Quest. I have been reading some on home-barista also. My biggest concern is if it's possible to pull an exceptional roast with a 270 gram batch. Other than that I love the basic profile of this machine. I will continue researching and appreciate the reply, -gail (view)

200 grams green coffee. You could potentially do more with this new design, since it does a much better job retaining heat. I haven't experimented with larger batch sizes, but know there's a pretty extensive thread at about the Quest, and you might ask them their opinion about roasting larger batch size. 224g is 8 oz, so I guess...(view)

I am currently looking for a simple home roaster capable of doing back to back roasting of finished 8 oz batches. When speaking of 200 gram batches, is that green or roasted? (view)
