The Perfect Blends After 25 Years!!!!

Hello, Everyone,

I have been quite busy lately, probably thanks to this blog, with some really interesting projects. All the while I have been pondering whether or not, to get back into the business I so know and love.....
I have worked with people who want to use fruitwood in the roasting process to affect the ultimate flavor of the finished product, to, redesigning a production line that has multiple uses and endless flexibility! That is all well and good, and I will keep on taking these very interesting and complicated challenges. I love it, I am at the very root a fan of risk taking, if you haven't gotten that impression before this post!(HINT; maybe you should start from the beginning) LOL!!
But coffee is my love and I have been working on, what I call my "desert island blend". You get it right? You know, if you were on a desert island and you had only one song to listen to, what would it be or .....well you get it.
So after 25 years I have found and created my JavaJoe's Desert Island Blend, my 3 weeks stranded Blend, my "OK This is Way Better Than Normal" blend and one hey if you have to do it, my Decadent Decaf Blend. So, here's the deal, these are not cheap! "You remember my last posting I hope about DE-Commoditizing your product article. But they are fantastic quality blends that have, after 25 years of testing, my full stamp of Approval on it!! I hope you noticed I don't advertise Dunkin Donuts or even Peet's Coffee on here. I am simply not a fan. I am however a fan of the Illy products I advertise on this blog as well as, Cafe Britt, and the Donut Shop K-Cups are the best in that limited format. Not to be a snob, but if you really want to drink great coffee, learn how to use a French Press! Which is in here somewhere in this blog!! I have been advertising it for months!! Bodum is the best, trust me!!
So now I have to figure out how to install a buy button on here for people that want to order these blends!!! Unfortunately, blogging is about as computer savvy as I get, along with putting an auto-responder on here. SO YOU CAN JOIN MY EMAIL LIST PLEASE!!!! So bear with me because I should have this all figured out by the end of the week!
I would like to ask you all a question now. You have been reading this blog, well most of you for quite awhile now. In fact my last post reached over 100 people yesterday, a new record!!! Everyone says, traffic is everything, I say loyalty is everything!! I understand their point but for all of the people following this blog, and there will be plenty more to come from it trust me, you know I have really never tried to sell you anything, and I am still not really. I would just like to know, if these coffees will be available by the end of the week, who would buy them? Leave a comment. Please. Yes or no, it is ok either way.
I can tell you that the Desert Island blend is going to be $14.29 for 11oz + shipping & handling! The other ones are going to be $13.39 and the Decaf is going to be $14.79 all 11 oz formats! It is Swiss Water Process.
Anyway, that's it for now, oh, except there will be a sampler 4 pack for 52.95!!! Initially so there you go. I hope you tell your friends and family, spread the word, I am starting from scratch on this again but I know it will be worth it!!!
So for now, We'll talk soon!!

How To Roast Your Own Coffee At Home!

How To Roast Your Own Coffee At Home!How to roast your own coffee at home! This is a question I have been asked by many people, especially lately. I haven't been actively updating the blog lately because this is one area of my return to the coffee business that I have really been working on.
First of all, coming from a commercial coffee roasting plant, with over 25 years of experience, this question was one I really had to think about. I was thinking, is it even possible to roast a quality cup of coffee at home and secondly, is it worth your time, effort and expense?
Well the answer is a resounding, ABSOLUTELY! Now, with Black Friday right around the corner, I thought this would be a fantastic time to talk a little about the process, the equipment required and some of the nuances you must eventually master to experience the Freshest cup of coffee you will EVER drink!
Now for me, I was lucky enough to pick whatever coffee or blend from my plant on a daily basis, throw a pound in my 1…

Has The Coffee Roasting Business In The U.S. Taken Its Last J.A.B.?
Unless you have been hiding in an unmarked oil well over the past few months, you already must have realized there has been a significant change in the coffee roasting industry. The $40 billion U.S. market has another bully on the block and watch out Nestle, these gentleman are playing for all the marbles.#entrepreneurship

Coffee beans, which is the second largest traded commodity in the world is apparently a target of one of the richest families in Europe. The Reimann family has not so quietly, been actively targeting U.S roasters and using a “price is not an issue" formula!



The cash is there, and they are clearly not afraid to be buying based on future earnings projections. This isn't a strange occurrence for J.A.B., they purchased D.E. Master Blenders, Douwe Egbert for a cool $10 billion. Many analysts refer to this transaction as, "a pure play coffee company".

Their coffee portfolio no…

The Future Of The Coffee Business in The U.S.

So where do you think the coffee business is going in the U.S.? As I have written in previous posts, there has been major consolidation within this industry over the past few years. Long overdue by any industry standard.

Let's take a look at the factors, roadblocks, and issues this business has, moving forward in the U.S. marketplace. It is far from unique as many industries are in the same boat. But where is the next big breakthrough? Will there be another Keurig? Well no one has a crystal ball, but there are things happening, and most of them, like the 1 cup k cup machines are not on a lot of people's radar yet. But, for someone like me, who has spent more than half of their lives in this industry, I have to believe that will come along.

Again, that next big thing in my mind is still only half the equation! Consolidation of this industry is still in the really early stages, as far as I'm concerned. But, as I sit here an…
