This is it.

It ain't cheap but the "Best" never is.

Mocca, Mocha, Moca, however you care to spell it this word even in the Specialty coffee Community has several distinct meanings. Sometimes referring to chocolate with coffee or a chocolate / coffee drink in a coffee Shop. When describing a Raw coffee bean for Home coffee Roasters however, the term "Mocha" has nothing to do with the cocoa bean or chocolate being added to coffee.
Mocca or Mocha is sometimes used as a Region name for a coffee from Yemen but is really not an actual Region but rather a Traditional Yemeni Method of removing the skin and fruit (Processing) from the coffee cherries. This Mocha method involves allowing the cherries to partially dry on the vine before picking or on tiled roof tops before removing the fruit from the seed (coffee bean). This same Traditional form of Dry Processing has been practiced in Yemen for hundreds of years to produce for them the optimal main ingredient of a drink called Qishr made from the dried fruit of the coffee cherries along with sugar and spices.
For us home coffee Roasters lucky enough to acquire this fine coffee, the Yemen Mocha process delivers a wonderfully sweet rich cup with notes of heavy fruit and chocolate, a bold acidity and full smooth body.

We just call it "up North". Summer weekends in Wisconsin's North Woods! A great cup of home roasted coffee (our new Colombia FT Organic Tolima) and seeing this little guy in the yard. I know this is a bit off the path of the coffee purist but it IS why we go out of our way to find simply Better Coffees. It should always be about Enjoying the coffee you drink.

It seems that running out of something just when you want it is part of the Specialty Coffee Business.
This time it is 2 of our most popular Home coffee roasters; the FreshRoast SR300 basic model and FreshRoast SR700 USB connectable computer control model. We should have the SR700 in stock again before Labor Day and the FreshRoast SR300 a couple weeks after Labor Day.
We still have a few FreshRoast SR500 home coffee bean roasters available and should be able to replenish before running out.
Check our Roasters page Link below for all our Home Coffee roasting machines.

Honey Processing of Specialty coffee is becoming increasingly popular and thus available if not cheap. We really enjoy high Altitude grown full flavored varieties when the Honey Process is used to remove the fruit from the coffee cherry. Ad the discovery of a coffee growing Region that has been producing many of El Salvador's Cup Of Excellence winners the last three years and you have our new El Salvador Fredy Recinos Pacamara Honey Coffee.

We love it when we find a great coffee, and lets face it, we love it even more if the price is affordable for a daily cup. So, how can our day get any better? Finding that delicious affordable coffee that is not only Organic but also Fair Trade!
Yummy, Healthy, and just good for Everyone, from Grower to You.

Our trip to the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) convention yielded a wealth of coffee information, innovative new products, and chance to build on our relationships with the coffee Community.
We loved this product so much we agreed to buy it on the spot for our Home coffee Roasters that like to "Do It Yourself" and / or like to Record any roast profile on your computer and Repeat at will. Take the Guess work out of repeating a roast.
The product is the HEAT SNOB accurate temperature Sensor (thermocouple) with a simple USB connection to your computer. The bonus is the Free Downloadable coffee roasting profile Recording Software (Roast Monitor) that works with the HEAT SNOB temperature sensor. It sounds a bit complicated but with just a short introduction to the Roast Monitor software even I found it easy to use.
You can mount the HEAT SNOB sensor on any coffee roasting device like Whirley Pops, Hot Air popcorn poppers, and converted gas grills, where you can drill a hole to position the sensor thermocouple so it won't interfere with moving parts or beans.

Stainless Steel Whirley Pops make great Coffee roasting devices. Why make a popcorn popper of Stainless Steel, or in our case Coffee Roaster, rather than aluminum used to make the original Whirley Pop? Both metals are great conductors of heat, both are unlikely to wear through given normal use. So, Why the extra expense of Stainless Steel?
Because it WORKS even better than the original for Roasting Coffee! We were surprised at just how well the stainless steel version of our old favorite the Whirley Pop works for roasting coffee at home on the stove. The Stainless steel is heavier and does a better job of distributing the heat evenly which makes for a much more consistent roast with less effort on our part. The gears on the crank are made of metal rather than the plastic of the original that should lead to greater durability especially when roasting a pound of coffee at a time.
We love this time honored method of roasting coffee at home over a flame on the stove as our ancestors did. It is a simple way to enjoy better coffee because YOU made it Fresh at home. We were so impressed with the Stainless steel Whirley Pop for roasting coffee that we now offer them on our site in the Coffee Roasters section. Check it out.

They say "Variety is the spice of life" and we agree, which is one of the reasons we love roasting coffee at home. You just can't get the varieties of coffee available to Home Coffee Roasters any other way. Go to a Store and you find fifty brands of the same thing, Colombian, great in it's own right but still pretty much the same and perhaps a handful of others. With "Best if used by" dates of a YEAR to Year and a half after the day it was roasted. Does that sound "Fresh" to you? You can get your coffee at a coffee shop (we do love coffee shops, yum), but coffee only stays fresh for 10 to 21 days so the number of coffees they can keep fresh and in stock is limited.
We offer over Sixty (I haven't counted lately) varieties of green coffee beans with new ones arriving all the time.
Our latest offering is an Organic Mexico grown in the state of OAXACA, produced by PROMIZAP. Sweet, mild, and balanced, with hints of spice and floral, get more details on our site.
