Native Test Kitchen
Mar. 10, 2014
For a little over a year, I’ve spent my days and nights roasting coffee on a small 2 kilo drum roaster in a warehouse on the edge of astoria & woodside. 2 kilos isn’t much, a typical batch yields anywhere from 2-3 lbs. every 12-15 minutes. In order to meet demand and focus on working with more cafes and restaurants, I needed a bigger roaster. I recently spent a week in Massachusetts training on a range of Probat roasters. Upon coming back to Queens, I made the decision to bring in a Probat P12 (a 12 kilo roaster), which arrived last week.
I’ve spent the last few days building out a much bigger area in our warehouse and I am finally ready to fire her up. With that being said, this new roaster produces 10-18lb batches and I’m going to need to break it in a little. In the beginning I’m going to have a lot of coffee around, so much so that I won’t be able to drink it all myself. That’s where you come in. I am inviting you to join my “test kitchen”.
For $50, I will deliver at least 5 shipments of 8oz bags of any roasts that make it past the cupping table. There is a possibility that there will be more than 5 shipments, depending on how much profiling and how many test roasts I end up doing, but there will be no less than 5 deliveries. Coffee will be sent via USPS and arrive a few days off roast. Deliveries will start now and continue to ship until mid June.
The list is open to the first 30-40 people that respond. Payment can be made via paypal or CC number over the phone.
