Our dream to roast coffee came during our regular morning routine on Peaks Island. Walk the dog, feed the cat, let the chicken out, make coffee, settle into the couch with the paper, ponder life. Before we knew it, the paper was read, "business plan" formulated, a new coffee roaster from Sonofresco was winging it's way to our tiny Maine Island off the coast of Portland, Maine. Fresh roasted coffee from an outer Island off the coast of Portland, Maine, what could be better?
We found a distributor of green coffee from small coffee producers in rural Colombia. These women coffee producers work closely with the Cafe Feminino Foundation on enhancing their quality of life and the lives of their families.
We offer two roast profiles "Dr. Moore's Theory of/Theory for..Dark Roast" The coffee is full with chocolate and complex flavors. The medium roast a good mix of flavors including some fruitiness.
This was an idea hatched BEFORE our first cup of coffee. So, all this could be like driving off a cliff. But, life's an adventure right? If people like it, we'll keep roasting coffee. If not, we'll have a great coffee roaster; a really cool rubber stamp and paper bags from which to share coffee with family and friends.
