The Curse of Fresh Roasted Coffee

When we first opened Chazzano Coffee Roasters, I had a great idea. We roast 10-20 different single origin coffees every day.

We’re One Year Old!

I’m roasting Costa Rica Tarrazu Santa Laura now. It’s truly bringing a tear to my eyes, because it is the first coffee that I roasted 10 years ago. My wonderful mother-in-law always sends a nice check every October in honor of my birthday. Ten years ago, with that act of lovingkindness, I bought a small […]
