Read This: Joe Johnston's Roaster Project Blog
If you consider yourself a card-carrying coffee geek -- or, as restaurateur Joe Johnston would put it, a "disciple" of the "true gospel of coffee" -- then you need to bookmark Johnston's excellent new blog, Roaster Project.
Johnston, who was one of the original founders of Coffee Plantation before selling it and going into the restaurant biz (he owns Joe's Real BBQ, Joe's Farm Grill , and Liberty Market in Gilbert), recently started the blog as a way to document his progress in designing and building his own commercial coffee roaster. He plans to spend the next year developing his ideas, conducting research, and ultimately building the machine.
