The Roastery at Innisfree: Well, hello

I haven’t updated this site in quite a while and, unfortunately, it shows. Changes are coming, but it may take me a while to get them implemented.

In the meantime, if you want to see a real-time list of what I have in stock, I sell my coffee through the Miami County Locally Grown Virtual Market, and the varieties and prices on that site are up-to-date.

So, what’s coming? Well, first off, I plan to update my varieties and prices here. I’m also in the process of moving into a new roastery that will make roasting coffee easier. Once that’s up and running, I plan to revisit my current varieties of coffee to add some and, perhaps, discontinue some others. My main focus will be on adding sustainably grown, fair trade, organic coffees from sources I can verify.

Until then, stay tuned. More is coming.

The Roastery at Innisfree: 2015 price update

In a word, yeouch!

All sorts of things factored into the most recent price increases, including world turmoil, weather, climate, and the fact that I waited way too long to start raising my prices in the hope green coffee prices would actually go down.

My new prices reflect the current market and should allow me, barring unpredictable world events, to avoid raising them again for a while.

Coffee: Updated price list

I finally updated the price list on this site to reflect my current prices. Of course, some of you might be wondering, “Why the big increases?”

Unfortunately, coffee, like many other commodities, is experiencing large price swings right now. Many of the varieties I carry increased as much as a dollar a pound for green coffee last year and some of the varieties I want to carry are simply not available this year.

In order to ensure I can continue to roast–let’s face it, roasting involves a lot more than just buying green beans–I had to adjust my prices accordingly. If prices were to go down, and there is evidence that they may for some varieties later this year, I will adjust my prices accordingly.

In the mean time, thank you for your patronage and I look forward to roasting coffee for your in 2012.
