Levi Rogers used to be one of my best friends until he started roasting coffee. Now he is my dealer. Our relationship has changed significantly and he always wants to come in and “just have one cup with me” every time he drops it off. Its very uncomfortable and i’m not sure what to do about it.
Levi is in the process of starting a boutique coffee roasting company called “La Barba” which in swahili means “Chain smoking coffee roaster”. I went over to his house yesterday to watch him roast (and potentially score some beans). Levi and Tim built a homemade roaster that is working quite well. While there weren’t people sitting around in their underwear weighing beans, there was a cocaine scale that measures in grams so that was cool. Levi is going to start selling coffee in the next month or so. If you are interested, hit up labarba.Levi@gmail
