Some will want to work with food, some will prefer nights, and some will want to get their hands dirty at The Roastery. People ask us what we look for in a Summit employee. It’s…

    Adventures in Roasting, Take 1

    No Comments

    Here we are at the Roastery, 7:00am on a Sunday morning usually reserved for long runs, large coffees and no alarm clocks.

    Three very heavy crates arrived on a truck from Reno today, and we lowered them into a nearby warehouse. There were high fives — and high nerves; one of the crates nearly tipped over.
