"Moving amid a tangle of bikes, roasting equipment, tools and paperwork, the 29-year-old Portland native has an unmistakable mad-scientist vibe. Stacks of dog-eared spiral-bound notebooks contain notes on tasting, temperatures, technique and results. Clever ink drawings depicting daily events are taped to the sliding doors."

This past Sunday's Oregonian featured an thoughtfully written article about our good friend, that amazingly talented coffee roaster, Joel Domreis. Heidi Swift wrote the article which appeared in the Outdoor section of the 11/15/2009 Sunday Edition. She also wrote a killer piece about Joel on her blog which includes some great photos of the Courier Coffee Roasters roastery.
