Micro-Roasters Targeted by Online Scam

Posted by Kevin on 11/27/2013 to General

Since our inception, Woodshed Roasting has been a company that highly supports local businesses as well as similar small coffee roasters around the country. While not dutifully producing roasted coffee beans, we always find the time to stay up to date with industry news. This is why we’ve recently been very disappointed after reading an article from the Daily Coffee News in this month’s, “Roast Magazine.” It turns out that someone has been targeting small coffee roasters like us with an unusual online request for 250 pounds of fresh roasted coffee. Roast magazine has confirmed that numerous micro-roasters have received an email from a man calling himself David Walters of Walters & Sons Ltd., or as Mark Curry. 


Fresh Roasted Coffee: Decreasing the Risk of Liver Cancer?

As one of New England’s premier coffee roasters, we at Woodshed Roasting are proud to announce that the new Vendor’s Exchange International issue has a primary focus on the developments in coffee making, both in the U.S. and abroad. And this particular issue is important to us because it details a study done in Italy that attributes a lower risk of liver cancer to the drinking of fresh roasted coffee. Woodshed Roasting is already aware of the many great benefits of drinking coffee made from some of the finest gourmet coffee beans in the world, but this new Italian study has us on the edge of our seats.
