I have been roasting for 3 years as a hobby and many of my family members and friends have suggested that I should start to sell my coffee. Within the second year of sales, my first roaster could not keep up with the overwhelming demand of Tom’s Best Coffee. I have since upgraded to the premium RK Drum Roaster, which allows me to produce my product more efficiently. My customers can tell a big difference in the quality of my roast. I not only recommend this roaster but I give a A+ to Shane for his customer service.
