Introduction: For the Love of Big Yella

Written by Cafe Campesino on Sep 1, 2006 in Introduction, NEWSLETTER |

Too much love...there is no such thing for Lee and his new roaster!

Well, it’s up and running and the Café Campesino Fair Trade, organic coffee that you’re drinking has been roasted in our new 30k (which means a 30 kilogram capacity, though Lee roasts in batches ranging from 40-50 pounds at a time) natural gas-powered drum roaster. Unofficially nicknamed “Big Yella,” it was manufactured by our friends at Ambex, the same folks who built our last roaster. While our upgrade to the Ambex 30k enables Lee to roast in modestly larger volumes, it is the new roaster’s technological sophistication that is having the greatest impact, as it empowers Lee to apply his chef’s intuition while also managing the roasting process at a far more detailed level than was possible before. The net result is the same great coffee and one happy roaster — if that don’t spell love for coffee devotees, we don’t know what does! In this edition of Fair Grounds, a must-read: Bill follows up on his timely, thought-provoking article in the July issue, The Fair Tradin’ Crossroad Blues. For an update on the activity brewing at Café Campesino this fall, check out this month’s Community Caravan. We also spotlight our friends at Sweet Temptations in Suwanee, GA, offer a new recipe and present this month’s contest winner. Read on and enjoy…
