Small Batch Roasting Company
My name is Andrea Ghersi.
I was born and raised in Rome, Italy.
I earned a degree in culinary arts and worked as a chef for over 20 years.
I spent much of my time on the Gulf of Mexico, between Alabama and Louisiana, where I met my wife Suzi.
Life brought us to Delhi, New York, where we live with our three daughters.
Delhi is a great community and a wonderful place to live.
My passion for coffee started at a young age. My grandfather, Nonno Aldo, and I would go buy freshly roasted coffee every Sunday at the Torrefazione in Monteverde Vecchio, an old Roman neighborhood. As an Italian, coffee has been part of my daily routine and one of life’s daily pleasures. Today, I love to share my coffee knowledge and experience by creating artisan roasts to be enjoyed by all.
Coffee has more aromatics/flavor compounds than wine.
The smell of fresh coffee is so complex that manufacturers have repeatedly failed in reproducing a realistic synthetic version of coffee aroma.
The darker the roast the less caffeine it contains.
Unlike many people think a ”strong dark coffee”
has less caffeine than a light or medium roast.
