Farmers worry. Coffee farmers worry as much as, if not more than, most. They worry about the weather and the crop price, about shoes for the kids, and about the future of the family farm. They worry that the faraway consumer will never taste the goodness in their produce. The coffee farmer works his land to produce a fruit from which stones have been extracted, carefully cleaned, sorted, and sent as far as 8,000 miles to specialty roasters in the United States. It is the roaster's responsibility to reveal the unseen riches within the fruit that is coffee, by developing the flavors and fragrances lying dormant in the deceptively simple-looking beans, and in so doing, keeping faith with the farmer and his dreams for his coffee.
