About me
I am happy married to my beautiful wife, Johnese, for 38 years. Two beautiful daughters, two great son-in-laws and four wonderful grandchildren. I am retired from the IT industry and now I am a full time Youth Director, at a local church, and a part-time coffee roaster. I own Close to Heaven Coffee which I specialize in Single Origin coffees. I roast on a Ambex YM-2. I have been roasting for three years.

    Some coffee trivia:
    It takes about eight pounds of coffee cherry to make one pound of roasted coffee; 100 lbs. of coffee cherry produces approximately 12 lbs. of roasted coffee.
