I’m always on the lookout for great coffee, so I enjoyed reading about local roasters in the Winter 2009 issue of Edible WOW. A little coffee history, roasting philosophy, and some buying tips had me wishing for a hot cup of joe while I read the rest of the articles—including one on local famers harvesting winter greens. Now I want a salad, too.
