"This is still available. feel free to email with an offer or any other questions. Cup count is now just under 3500, but it has been pulled from production and sees even less use now."

Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Laramie, WY USA
How many years have you been in the industry?
If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
Coal Creek Coffee Company is Wyoming's premier craft roaster and Coffee retailer. We have two locations in Wyoming and wholesale to most reputable cafes in the region. We are a wholesale rep for Elektra espresso machines and are developing a barista outreach program that will elevate the quality of specialty coffee throughout the front range.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Any at all.
About Me:
I began working with specialty coffee in 2001. I grew up in Vermont and was introduced to the industry through Mocha Joe's in Brattleboro. I put myself through college serving Dean's Beans in Amherst, Massachusetts. I moved to Madison, Wisconsin where I became associated with Alterra Roasters, which I served at Mother Fools Coffeehouse. I have relocated to Laramie and was lucky to find Coal Creek Coffee Company, my current employer, a quality based company in a somewhat unlikely market.
About My Company:
Coal Creek Coffee Company is located in the beautiful and historic Laramie, Wyoming, two hours north west of Denver, on the front range of the rocky mountains. Located right on I-80, we often get favorable comments from travelers bound for one coast or the other. Our coffee is craft roasted on site and shipped to customers all over the country. We recently hosted our second Cup of Excellence Party, featuring two Cup of Excellence winners prepared on our Clover coffee machine. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our service and our product, as well as ways that we can positively impact the industry as a whole.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
I love the people

The following has been copied from my blogspot photos are available there, :

I thought this blogging thing was going to be easy to keep up with, but I guess I'm busier than I thought. This month has been an exciting progression for the Coal Creek Roastery. We're awaiting the arrival of a new roaster, a Deidrich HR-1 (ours is black), which will allow us to roast samples to the same exacting… Continue

Hi Jesse!

I am looking for a new espresso grinder. I manage an espresso bar at a church and we need a second grinder for our decaf. It's always been pre-ground because someone didn't think it necessary to buy a second grinder but pre-ground espresso, even decaf, is horrible. So I want to find a solid grinder for not a lot of money. I don't need a top-line grinder, just a solid budget grinder.

Thanks for the help!

Yeah, Seattle was awesome. So many new ideas and so many new products I didn't even know existed. And so much education on the best way to do things.

Hey Jesse, looks like an interesting place, as it stands i'm off to calgary in November, however that may change as well. We just had our central regional competition and i took first, so I'm off to Vancouver for nationals, and then I'll figure out my life from there, ahaha!

Thanks for letting me know though, what is it you'd be looking for?

To Laramie? you got it. it might be a while before I get back out that way, but I missed the Chief Joseph Highway on the last trip and I've heard that's pretty much the only highway in the country that you absolutely shouldn't miss. I'll see you in Wyoming. someday.
