My grandfather was a WWII Veteran and Marine Corps Drill Instructor. My mom was a WAC in the Air force . I was a Quartermaster in the US Coast Guard, so I guess you could say that service was in my blood.
A number of years ago, I was invited to a coffee cupping and from that point on I was ruined, or enlightened, I haven't figured that part out yet. I've been brewing beer at home for nearly a decade, so after reading about how to roast coffee at home, I started roasting my own.
Everyone with whom I have shared my coffee has loved it and many have asked to buy it, so Warrior Roasters was born!
