These are certainly interesting times to have opened a new coffee roastery and cafe!

Watching stores close and experiencing social distancing when I do dare to venture out to buy groceries has been surreal to say the least.

Generally speaking, darker roasts have been roasted longer and finish at a higher temperature than light roasts, and this process removes a bit more of the caffeine. As the consumer, one can visually observe that some beans appear lighter brown and dry and some appear darker and have a little (or a …
