In this episode I will interview Ryan O’Rourke about how he prepared to start a coffee roasting company.
Ryan is starting Ironclad Coffee Roasters in Richmond, Virginia. In this episode, Ryan talks in detail about how he selected his production roaster, how he goes about buying green coffee and selecting an importer, his portfolio and pricing policy.
We have a short chat about the advantages and complications of connecting a cafe with a roastery.
We finish with Stephen Leighton and his amazing strategy for keeping coffee fun and avoiding snobbery.
Ryan’s choice for the roaster – US Roasters 12kg Millenium
The article we mention – How to Buy a Coffee Roaster and not Get Burned
