2014—It’s Roasting

Not the weather—the coffee beans. I had a chance to photograph Nick Young, the Roaster at Vaneli’s Handcrafted Coffees today, while he roasted several batches of beans. Here is Nick checking on the progress of the roast; releasing the beans from the roaster into the cooling tray; cooling the beans; and presenting the perfect roast! Oh, and if you were wondering, Vaneli’s Handcrafted Coffee is the best I’ve ever tasted. It has chocolate overtones. Undertones? Whatever! It’s coffee but with that enticing chocolate lingering somewhere there. I drink Vaneli’s Classic Cremosa Espresso which is described as having chocolate notes with a cherry finish. Nick sent me home with Espresso Forte today with its sweet dark chocolate tones in the foreground. Who could resist this stuff?
