D.I.Y Coffee Roasting
The story of the project
This is it! This will be South Australia’s first ever D.I.Y coffee roasting facility where anyone from the general public is welcome to give roasting a go.
The process is simple, first timers will be given training on how to use the roaster and of course, run through safety procedures. Once they are trained, they will have the opportunity to blend and roast their own green coffee. The options are to book for hour blocks or if you desire, full days can be booked also. We will provide all the facilities required to test your final product and bags to take them home with you. The facility will have the ability to store roast information so users can progressively master the art of roasting and take steps towards perfecting their passion.
It will be an affordable solution for the budding coffee company start-up by freeing up the capital requirements of setting up their own roasting plant. Small espresso bars can lower costs by by green beans and roasting their own; allowing them the breathing space needed to continue providing you with the exceptional coffee experience you’ve come to expect.
Our desire is to collaborate with people who love coffee and to give them and us the chance to learn from each other.
We see new small business birthed from the ability to roast their own coffee. We see passions ignited and people taking the next steps to fulfilling dreams to enter into the coffee industry. We hope to provide training on the roaster and in preparing espresso/coffee beverages to people so that they can be confident to find jobs within the industry. We see this as a big door opener.
We require your support to see this become a reality. When embarking on such a journey, we see engagement with the local community as a logical approach. We want the local community to get involved and really feel apart of this project. We hope that for everyone who donates, that they will consider themselves a life long partner. Our rewards are delivered in a manner that will hopefully accomplish this and we look forward to beginning friendships over a cup of coffee.
How the funds will be used
Brand new Roaster with roast profiling software – supplied and installed
Utensils – includes buckets for green and roasted beans, cupping kits, espresso prep gear, pour over gear.
We have the space available but it requires a little TLC. We will also require minor electrical and plumbing work in order for the area to be operational. A little tiling, paint, safety gear and furnishings to make it a safe and comfortable place to work in.
Some of my other work
Adelaide, South Australia
Hi! Thanks for checking out the project I have going.
So I’ve been involved in the Adelaide coffee scene for around 12 years. I’ve watched it evolve into the vibrant culture it is today and I’m keen to remain involved for a long time to come. I hope to give a little back to the industry by offering something new – something different. That’s what this project is about.
At home I am a husband of a little over two years and we expect our first child, a boy in mid-May. Very exciting times. We also have a pet Samoyed named Arthur and ginger cat named Leo. I love my soccer – particularly Real Madrid, my beloved Croatia and of course the Socceroos! I’m also a dedicated member of Lifepoint Church and believe that Jesus was and is and is to come.
Thanks again and hope to see you soon for a coffee!
