How did Jack Bean Roasting Begin?
Andrea (the A in JACK) was inspired by a segment from the radio program ‘The Splendid Table’. She was out walking and listening to a podcast featuring the owner of Sweet Maria’s. The topic was the home roaster. The “aahha” moment came when the host posed the rhetorical question “You could turn this into a home business?” Andrea stopped, right in front of the high school, answered the question out loud with a triumphant “Yes!”. In less than a week she had convinced Jamie this was it, the business they could start together. A week later a sample green Bali Blue Moon coffee beans arrived and Jack Bean Roasting was born.
