Coming from a family of coffee lovers, my passion for coffee exploded in 2013 after visiting Uganda on a short-term mission trip with a small team.
I went over to meet the kids and the people of the orphan care ministry I was with. One day, we met the tribal leader of the village. He told our interpreter that he wanted to speak with me. We sat down outside on his porch and he told me the story of how he came to know Jesus. It was beautiful. After that, he gave a tour of his house, then his 5 acres of coffee trees. I began asking questions and discovered that all they know to do is grow them and let someone else harvest and process them. So, I set out on a quest to learn how to do that myself so that I can come back and teach them how to be more sustainable and make more profit with the crop. If you want to know the rest of the story, hit us up via text, email, or give us a call!
One of the main differences between us and many major roasters is how we roast our beans. A common roasting method with most roasters is the use of a gas roasting machine. LEGACY ROASTERS, LLC decided not to go the way of the many because of the toxins that the beans absorb during the roasting process. Rather, we went with road less traveled and decided to utilize a cleaner roasting machine that uses a bed of hot air instead. The air is clean and does not negatively alter the beans inherent flavor and natural aroma.
