What Makes PAN ROASTing Coffee Different ?

In An Attempt To Not Only Clear Up, But Also Explain The Madness Behind My Obsession With PAN Roasted Coffee. 1st I Would Like To Say This Method Isn't For Everyone, For One It Takes Lots Of Patience N Time, I'm Sorry Some Of Us Don't Have That. I Mean We All Have Different Life Styles. It Is My Goal To Allow My Drinker To Journey With Me In A Day Of Patient Slow Roasting Technique An Unforgettable Experience. Relax Enjoy The Coffee, Some Things Are Still Made Good, The Old Fashioned Way. Remember When You Were Young When You Didn't Have A Care In The World? Well My Friend I Want U To Rewind Back Then And Have A Sip With Me, Provided You Have The Time. This Isn't A Job 4 Me, this Is A Passion, N A Celebration Of Me Living My Life. Now That You Get A Lil Bit Of The Picture I'm Trying To Paint, I'll Explain What Makes PAN Roasted Coffee Different. Don't Worry If U Don't Understand Everything I'm Saying I Will Explain In Later Blogs Take It One Page At A Time,Skipping Pages Isn't Allowed. Remember I Want You To Sip With Me. Gulping Hot Coffee Isn't Wise. So Now For All You That Wonder, I Will Not Say That My PAN Roasted Coffee Is The Best Coffee Nor Will I Say It's Better Than The Next Coffee, But I Will Say It Is The Most Unique Experience You Will Ever Embark On In The Coffee World. Meet Man vs Machine. It Is Important For Me To Say There Are Several Companies In The Coffee World I Admire. Who Knows Honestly I Can See My Name On Some Of Their Coffee Labels Guess I Have An Eye For The Future.I Will Always Own A PAN, But I Have Much Bigger Plans ;). Does Anyone Know The Perfect Person? If So I'd Like To Know Them Too! Well Truth Is Even Perfect Is A Matter Of Opinion Not Necessarily Based On Facts.With My PAN Roasting Methods I Don't Seek Perfection I Seek Uniqueness. In Short Coffee Is A Very Complex Beverage, I'll Leave All The Complexities N Number Figures To The Experts. Lets Say U Have 10 Coffee Beans And All Of Them Are The Same Bean Roasted The Same Way, That Would Make For A Uniformed Cup Of Coffee Right? Now Lets Say U Take 5 Of Those 10 Coffee Beans And Roast Each Of Them A Different Time, So Now You Have 1/2 Same & 1/2 Totally Abstract. Now Where Is The Uniformity Well Lets Say The Uniformity Equations Has Now Gotten Broader There Is Now Uniformity In The Total Batch Because They Are All Different But In Uniform Like People You See, Each Of My PAN Roasted Beans Has It's Own Voice, Even Though It Was In The PAN The Same Amount Of Time As All Others, The Results Can Never Be The Same Bean, Because I'm Not A Machine, So From A Complexity Stand Point PAN Roasted Coffee Should Be Harder To Pin Point Some Notes, Just Because Of The Way It's Process, That Doesn't Mean PAN Roasting Is Better, Just Means For All You Explores Out There That Like Being Adventurous Come On Over And Take A Trip On The Wild Side. I Promise To Hold Ur Hand If That's What It Takes, Free Your Mind Free Your Beans. The BEAN BODY Has Spoken... Hope U Guys Got Something Out Of My Coffee Ground Chatter C|_| Peace N Great Coffee! You'll Be Hearing More Bean Chatter As Soon As I Get A Writer..HaHa

The Heritage Lives Strong DON FRANCISCO'S

Today I Receive A Very Special Package From A Coffee Friend On Twitter @CoffeeQuest Aka Mike Gavina. What Makes This Such A Special Gift Is That Being A Nano PAN Roaster, I Tend To Get Over Looked By The Big Guys, I Shouldn't Say Over Looked, But In A World Of Machine Vs Man, Man Tends To Always Have The Underhand, Unless Of Course He's The Man That Made The Machine. Or Is Behind The Machine... On With Coffee I Received A Can Of Don Francisco's Vanilla Nut Coffee,Some Hawaiian Hazelnut, As Well As Some Of The Holiday Blend. The Packaging Was An Inspiration For Me, Because I Do A Lot Of Recycling And Lack The Funding To Be Able To Have Fancy Packaging,It's Very Important For My Coffee To Stand Out In Taste.I Want To Be Honest In This Blog And Say I'm Not That Flavor Coffee Type At All, So Years Ago When I Started Learning About Coffee I Happen To Pick Up A Can Of This Don Francisco's Vanilla Nut, Because I Was Really New To The Flavor I Didn't Consider It A Flavor. I Just Thought Is Was Roasted With A Vanilla Nut Or Something HaHa. Hands Down It Was Just A Great Tasting Coffee, So I Always Would Look For It In The Stores, I Would Actually Get Upset When I Couldn't Find It.After I Started Roasting My Own Coffee, If I Was Too Lazy To Roast, I Would Always Go Get A Can Of This Great Tasting Coffee,Becuase My Family Had Become Dependent On Me Being The Coffee Provider And Entertainer, Not Knowing That Someday I Would Befriend One Of The Heirs To This Coffee Legacy, Now That In Itself Is Quite A Story, For Me I've Only Been In This Field About 10yrs, Whereas Don Francisco's Has Over 135 yrs Behind Their Love For Coffee, N Honestly You Can Taste It In Their Coffee. I Know This May Be A Shock To Some That Know Me And My Coffee PAN Roasting Fresh Anti PreGround Coffee. I'm Unsure Of All Of The Processing Methods Use At Gavinas, But I'm Certain They Are Among The Highest Standards. Not Only Are Don Francisco's Coffees Rare, But The Their Company Is Also A Founding Member Of The Specialty Coffee Association Of America (SCAA). I Would Also Like To Point Out That This Company Started Out Very Much Like Me Selling Door To Door And Just Sharing The Wonderful Joy N Love For Coffee. It Just Shows Me That With Passion Anything Is Possible I Look Forward To Enjoying My Coffee I Received, I Also Am Looking Forward To Learning From A Company That Has So Much Experience, One Thing I Have Learned Is That There Is Always Something To Learn In Coffee, I Guess That One Of The Greatest Things About It. Coffee Has No Boundaries, And There Are No Substitutes For A Good Cup Of Coffee. I Invite You All To Visit DON FRANCISCO'S They Have Plenty Of Wonderful Coffee Gift Baskets, Also U Don't Have To Take My Word For Their Products 135+ Years I Think That Speaks For It Self. I Would Like To Thank My Friend Mr. Gavina, Once Again For His Generosity. What A Great Christmas Gift C|_|
