Subject: Good roasters in Connecticut?
Does anyone happen to know of any good roasters/shops in Connecticut
that I could contact? I am just getting into this all and so I don't
really know of anyone in the area. I live in New Haven county.

In New Haven County, Willoughby's roasts at their Madison shop.

If you're willing to trek up the shoreline to Mystic, Green ble
Coffee Roasters does all of their roasting on-site.

And if you're willing to venture inland, Daybreak Coffee Roasters in
Glastonbury does their own roasting, as well.

I haven't bought many roasted beans in the New Haven area for a while,
since I've been roasting at home. Most places I've tried look at you
cross-eyed if you ask when their beans were roasted. Willoughby's do
their roasting in one of the shoreline towns (I want to say Madison),
but they have shops in New Haven and Branford. There were two places in
Cheshire that had decent beans but unreliable hours, and a place in
North Haven that no longer roasts their own (and sells rather mediocre
beans at that). There might be other options in Milford or Orange, but
I'm not really familiar with that part of the county. So, I guess the
short answer is start with Willoughby's.
