Hello from a roasting NOOB in Dallas. In the last year or two I've transitioned from Sam's Club whole bean, a Cuisinart burr grinder in a Cuisinart auto drip (fair cup of joe). To a Capresso conical burr grinder and a Saeco/Starbucks Espresso machine and the occasional pour over and french press(big leap in flavors and mouth feel). I've acquired 10lbs of raw green beans have taken the plunge. My first batch was old school cast iron pan on the stove top (burnt to a crisp), the last 4 or 5 batches have been in a Poppery II and have had fair to good results. I have all the parts to set up a Stir Crazy Convection Oven DIY roaster and cant wait to dial in some tasty beans! Abel in Dallas

Some machines come from Chris' Coffee as they are the direct importer. Simonelli's and Victoria Arduinos come from Nuovadistribution. In short, I go through established channels for my machines and either drop ship or have them available at my shop. I'm way too small to work otherwise but I have big dreams!
The My Way Izzo is a different relationship all together as I'll be sole distributor for the 1 group. Chris will handle the multi-group Izzos.
Always an open invitation to visit the biggest little roastery in TX.
