There is nothing like the smell of coffee. To me, it is the morning, afternoon and evening. I drink coffee all day, everyday. The smoky scent, the different flavors coffee can have from being being brewed any number of ways make this the perfect drink. So, when Roast House wanted me to photograph their operation, I said yes.

I spent a couple of hours photographing everything from roasting to cupping to brewing. I saw how they measured each bag, some being ground and some sold as whole beans. I saw all of the different roasts, ready for blending. French press, espresso, cold brew and flash brew were some of the different coffees prepared. I’m pretty sure I didn’t hide my excitement too well.

My earliest experience with coffee was at church service, the stale lack of flavor that most church coffee had when I was younger. Coffee has changed a lot since then. Folgers and Maxwell House just don’t cut it anymore. Coffee now comes in many roasts, each using a different roasting time and temperature. It is ground specifically for everything from drip to espresso.

Yes, I love coffee and coffee loves me. Speaking of, I need another cup.
