Girl from the Northwoods was recently commissioned to do a story for Backroads Coffee and Tea on their new Roastery…and while doing so, I got to achieve one of my lifelong dreams: Trying my hand at roasting a batch of coffee beans.
Of course, I had to open my big mouth about being able to recognize a French Roast anywhere, so which one did I get to roast? Oh, yeah: FRENCH ROAST, THE HARDEST ONE TO PERFECT WITHOUT STARTING A FIRE AND BURNING THE JOINT DOWN.
I managed to do it (with a lot of help from the owner and master roaster, Rod), and at the end, they gave me a personalized bag of my very own roast!
I knew starting Girl from the Northwoods would pay off eventually!
