    Good morning,

    I am the founder of U-Roast-em, came up with the name and concept and put it into action. What you have done with it is amazing and warms my heart. Keep up the good work and very best luck in all you do. I do have an idea if you are interested. I live in Costa Rica Full time now enjoying the weather.

  3. Martin Russo says:

    Good Morning Jim and thanks for the kind words!

    We are honored and thrilled to continue your legacy and so glad you approve. We’ll contact you shortly about your idea. Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

    Marty and Jane

    PS By the way it’s about 38 and sunny up here in NW Wisconsin. You made the right move 🙂

    Hi John,

    Hey thanks for taking the time to comment. We love our customers, and this little business. We plan to be around for a long, long time. I know we’ll all get through this difficult period – we always have and we always will. Take care and stay healthy!

    Marty and Jane

  6. Bill says:

    Just thought I’d shoot you a link to a video I made on how to roast your beans.


  7. Martin Russo says:


    This is great! Very straightforward and easy to understand even for a beginner roaster. I viewed a few of your other cooking videos – the beef brisket and guacamole videos are outstanding. I just bought an 18 quart charcoal smoker and will give that smoked brisket a try. I also really appreciate that you add sign interpretation to your videos – very thoughtful!

    Thanks for sharing your link, and thanks for the plug for U-Roast-Em!


  8. richard healy says:

    Do I really want a coffee that tastes like lemon, black tea, toffee and caramel (Guatemala Huehuetenango) or
    floral with caramel, lime, sugar cane juice, bergamot and green grape (Ethiopian Yrgacheffe)
    Please don’t fall into this trap. I defy any two people blind tasting to come up with these flavors.
    Your coffees are good. Stick to objective descriptors.
    P.S. I think the SCAA flavor wheel is very subjective.

  9. Martin Russo says:

    Good Morning Richard,

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. I agree that some of the cupping notes are hard to sense, and are very subjective based on several factors; the palate of the taster, roast, etc. On the other hand, there are distinct differences in Specialty Grade beans, and we try to source our beans from small farmers who do try to tease out certain flavors through their growing process.

    Our cupping notes come right from the importers who have tasting staff trained in using the SCA flavor wheel and are “pros” (think Sommelier in the wine industry). Since these nuances may be too subtle for some, Jane and I also sample roast each offering and list our own impressions under the “Taste” section of each bean. Still subjective of course, but we try to relate in layman’s terms what we experience.

    I’m sure some of our customers feel exactly as you do, and others seem to like that we share all the details available to us, even the esoteric.

    Thanks again for your comments and for buying our beans. And thanks for taking the time to comment and share your thoughts – much appreciated.

    I was just browsing the green coffee beans and decided to leave a comment. This company is awesome and very caring about their customers. The first time they called me at home to fix my packaging on my order, I knew their customers weren’t just another sale. I love this company and even got my sister in law hooked. And, it wouldn’t be a real review unless I commented that every green bean I’ve ever ordered has made a great cup of coffee. Thank you.

  11. Ellen says:

    I love my counter top roaster, thank you Marty and Jane for excellent customer service always. These green beans are the way to go!

  12. David Tappy says:

    Happy Anniversary! I am originally from Northern Wisconsin and am happy to see folks’ interest in specialized coffee.

    Been home roasting for 6 years. Recently I came across ….. by accident, a roast that I’d like to share with you given that you share roast profiles on your website. You may wish to give it a try. It is bold and smooth. We call it MichigammeR, Here is the formula. Please let me know how you feel about it and … if you like, you may offer it as part of your menu. Again….Thank you for all you do in green and roasted coffee!

    4 oz Sulewesi Toraja S
    4 oz Costa Rica La Gladiola Tarrazu
    4 oz Guatemala La Flor del Cote
    4 oz Ethiopia Duarte Bombe Sidama
    Total roast time: 18.31 minutes to just before 2C

  13. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Thanks David for the kind words and for sharing your special blend! We love when people want to interact on our website. We hope more people will take the opportunity to use this as a forum of sorts.
    Happy Roasting!

  14. Jeremy Wright says:

    I just placed my fourth order and have had a GREAT experience each time so far. Quality beans and great customer service.

  15. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Thanks Jeremy! We sure appreciate it. Thanks for the order – it will be shipped out tomorrow morning!

  16. John Latimer says:

    I just completed an interview with the Smithsonian about bird friendly coffee. Do you offer any such products?

  17. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Hi John!

    That’s awesome! Congratulations on the interview.

    There are only about 1-5% of green coffee beans certified Bird-friendly (1%) and RFA (Rain Forest Alliance – 5%). Also Organic guarantees no pesticides are used, but does not insure the canopy protection. RFA guarantees canopy protection but not necessarily organic. Specialty grade beans (such as the beans we offer) most often are “Organic” but many farms cannot afford the certification – just like many farms in the USA.

    We have been trying to find more of these offerings. Currently we have 4 RFA Offerings – LaMinita, India, Rwanda and El Salvador.

    I would love to hear the interview if you wouldn’t mind sending a link when it’s available or chatting about what you know

    Thanks for the inquiry and keep us posted!

    I’ve been doing business with u roast em and I love their company, and of course their unroasted green beans . My favorite is the mocha Java blend. This is a good company, plus they treat their customers with respect.

  19. It’s so refreshing to deal with owners( Need to speak with Jane still)that are actually excited about their business. I felt zero pressure only enthusiasm.I had made a mistake (actually twice within minutes on 2 orders) and I was worried . I called(3 times) Marty ,problem solved. Marty what were you thinking putting 24/7/365 with crazies like me out there?( j/k,I’m as normal as anyone who dives into everything with a passion that’s ,well you tell me. A while ago I started flying/building RC Planes. I only have 73 now. 40ish years ago I started into cigars. I only have about 5000 aging in a 6′ x7′ x2′ double door humidor. Then I decided to roll some. I’ve currently about 80 lbs of cigar leaf ready to go ,with about 300 of my customs aging. Oh yeah, I decided to help others with rolling cigars by posting cigar blending/bunching/ wrapping wrapping videos on YouTube (search Kenneth J Monte youtube).
    I say this and more as you as you did say use it as a forum.”Get to know fellow roaster kinda thing although I’m new” Travel my new journey with me?. I will speak on the fellow talking about the “tasting notes”. Don’t apologize for saying them. Sorry for his bad luck,I get them In fact it may even be driving me a bit crazy. I’ve done many well recieved cigar reviews, even blind ones,both Cuban and non. My “nose” is incredible. Sounds like a challenge? We all know how things always equal out or you may say go full circle,right? Well here it comes. Ready?

    Marty what were you thinking putting 24/7/365 with crazies like me out there. I now know you not only exist but have you phone numbers. You may want to think about yourselves doing that Costa Rica” thing now….maybe the moon? (I’m glad you both decided to take 1 vacation day every 4 years). I can’t wait to start roasting. It’s ironic how I say “Im a self proclaimed coffee and cigar snob” I read your bio’s and after looking up the definition of snob I will no longer say that although with my collections others still may.Thanks for making me a better person. BTW I curse you too. Why ? It’s partially your fault me going down another rabbit hole. I’m actually a customer alot of vendors want. I’m loyal and most of all,returning. Too much? Tell them to move along. Or delete. That’s freedom. Ken..

  20. John R says:

    Been buying here a long time. Never an issue.
    Great knowledgeable owners. Always willing to answer your questions. Quick shipping. A++++++


  21. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Thanks John!
    We appreciate the kind words, continued support AND referrals!

  22. Carey Vik says:

    What is the best way to store green beans? is it ok to leave them in the plastic zip locks? some would say no. what say you? Thanks

  23. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Green unroasted beans can be stored in the zip bag they come in as long as they are in a cool dark place. The only time we run into problems with the plastic bag is when there is high humidity and moisture condenses on the inside of the bag. Then they run the risk of getting mold. We have never had issues keeping them in the plastic bags.

    When we receive them in 150lb bags there is almost always a plastic “Greenpro” Bag inside the jute bag. That’s how they’re shipped and stored in the warehouse in a temperature controlled environment.
    Thanks for the inquiry and we hope this answers your question!

  24. K says:

    If anyone reading this is on the fence, take the plunge!!

    The instructions were so easy (we chose oven), started with a small 1/4 lb amount in case we burned the beans, but the result was perfect, just finishing a smooth pour-over. I’m so excited we can stop buying from the big brand companies and support local, while roasting as much or as little as we want. We look forward to buying sample sizes at first, taking notes and finding our faves, then moving onto bigger amounts to store and roast at our leisure. Had I known it was so easy, I’d have done this years ago.

    Shipping and communication were great.. thank you Jane! We will be ordering again, promise! 🙂

  25. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    We are so glad you are enjoying home roasting! Thanks for the shout out and for supporting a small local business. It’s greatly appreciated!

  26. U-Roast-Em Admin says:


    First, my sincere apologies for the delayed reply. Jane assigned your posts to me, and I completely forgot. Mea Culpa.

    And Wow! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts about roasting, cigar rolling, RC planes – I’m overwhelmed. We are lucky to have you as a customer, and thanks especially for taking this forum seriously. In spite of my tardy response, your thoughts (all of them!) are exactly what we hope our customers will share. We’ll be as loyal to you as you are to us.

    It was great chatting with you on the phone, and just as satisfying on the forum.

    I’ll keep up going forward – promise.


  27. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Thanks for the kind words Joe and for your support of our small business. It’s greatly appreciated!

  28. William Koehnen says:

    Hi Marty & Jane, I have been ordering from U-Roast em from the begining. I started ordering from Jim Cameron (and talked to him many times for advice). I started roasting in a cast iron fry pan. Then I moved to a converted air popper! I purchased many types of roasters over the years and settled with Cafe gene. Witch has been rebuilt a few times and still works great. I’m in Arizona now and still enjoy your choice of coffee you offer. I’ve tried many suppliers over the years, and you guys are #1 choice for me!
    Thank You
    Bill K

  29. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Thank you so much for the kind words. We appreciate our long standing customers, such as yourself, and their loyalty to this small business. We hope you, and any of our other customers let us know if there is anything we can do to improve your coffee roasting experience – whether it be a particular bean you’d like to see or customer service changes. Happy Holidays and Happy Roasting! Marty and Jane

  30. Bob Jones says:

    Going on 5 years of purchasing green coffee beans from your company. Yes, we have tried numerous other companies, but nothing compares to yours. As retired Iowa teachers, we really enjoy that first cup of coffee in the morning. Thank you so much for your quality product and fast shipping, hoping for your continued success.

  31. U-Roast-Em Admin says:

    Thanks so much Bob! It’s loyal customers such as yourself that enable this mom and pop shop to keep up and running!
    We never thought you could feel like you actually get to know your customers in an online business, but we do.
    Thanks again for your kind words and patronage. Happy Roasting!
