coffee roasters

Our first 2 weeks as coffee roasters

Hand made in our beloved South Africa and delivered to our door after much drama 

We live on a small holding and had to "trim" the trees in our street before the truck could get through. Very exciting watching them dismantle the crate (which the kids now use as a playhouse) - yes that's how big it was! And then wheel this beautiful creature down the driveway in pieces.

Putting her together was like playing with Giant lego . Thankfully we are a crew of 1 mom, 1 dad, one lego loving boychild and 2 very enthusiastic girls.

2 weeks later the creator of the newest member of our family, came down for the weekend with his engineer for organized play and experiment. 

The smell alone after a day of roasting was enough to make us realize that we had made the right choice in new adventure.

Mom is used to roasting coffee beans in a pan so all of the graphs and numbers were not as exciting to her as they were to dad. (drinking and tasting, far more exciting)

Boychild loved looking, smelling and crunching every now and then on the beans. (10 so too young to actually drink coffee yet but still fancies himself an expert after all of the information and experimenting). 

Girl teen got right onto drawing up a logo for our brand and girl preteen enjoyed the smell of coffee penetrating every inch of our home.
