Drumroaster Cafe was created by Bert
Geir Oglend provides the greatest cup of coffee - at the Drumroaster Cafe, 1400 Cowichan Bay Road in the little shopping mall at intersection of Island highway. Had an Americano on first visit and then drove up from Victoria again for a second visit in a week. Patricia's muffins are great too.
His Espresso blend also works great in the Aeropress.
Check it out if you are going up island.

Thanks to Colin for the recommendation in cafe section.

Spot on review Bert - too many cafes have so much to learn.
The Drumroaster is a great place to start learning how it should be done.

I didn't find any discussions of home drum-style roasters here so I thought I would start one. It's only a matter of time before I buy one of these babies and I have no clue which one to get. As far as I can tell, there are 3 main competitors, The HotTop, GeneCafe, and Alpenrost. Are there any others? How do these stack up against each other? I'm looking for something which does about a half pound batch, has decent controls for time and temp, and cools well.

Depending on where you are located: In Canada, there is Green Beanery in Ontario...
and in the U.S. there is Sweet Marias.

I tend to steer clear of home roasting. I have done it. I will not do it again.
It is smokey, messy and, in my opinion, should be left to the pros.

To me, coffee is so precious, the roasting of which should not be in
the hands (other than very small batches...) of anyone but experts.

Sure, whip up a few ounces here and there with a small corn popper.

Great coffee deserves better treatment.
That said, I have supplied my entire lab with great in-house roasted
coffee using a, now defunct (I believe) Hearthware Coffee roaster...

I do not currently know enough about the machines out there to make any
statements about them.

Thanks for sharing information about Geir Oglend. There are many cafe opening day by day but the best thing which needed to run the cafe successfully is good service, new variety and tasty meal. Customers love a good coffee and also different flavors. I love coffee especially which is also good for health like ...
