Dry mill in my bedroom?
August 14, 2008
After it was all installed my father (not pictured above) shared with a goofy grin “I imagine there might be some people who work in coffee in the United States that would love to have their own sample roaster and dry mill in their apartment.”
Yes, after years of setting aside some funds with hopes to pick up a sample roaster, I came across a gorgeous antique 3 barrel probat. Antonio who works at the lab at Exportcafe along with Mario have been restoring this for almost a year.
Now this baby is installed in my bedroom along with a sample dry mill! I’m just not sure how long my wife will allow this set up IN our bedroom. I’m sure it will move back out soon. Pictured above is Aurelio Villatoro a long time friend and neighbor who is an award winning producer, Mario our in house probat expert and my grandfather eating fresh roasted FVH as an afternoon snack.
