New Coffee Roaster for Home City Roast | We need a new roaster to meet the needs of our soon to be organized coffee roastery.
Fresh Coffee Roasted Right Here in Oklahoma
Home City Roast is a budding coffee roastery right here in the plains of Oklahoma. Starting with just a popcorn roaster and a stovetop, we’ve honed our craft and roasted pounds and pounds of coffee, all in our pursuit for the perfect Oklahoma Roast. A new roaster more designed to meet our demand will set us on the right path to transition from an in-home hobby to a rewarding and fulfilling vocation!
What We Need
We need to raise $3,000.00 to buy a roaster that can meet more commercial needs so we can begin to sell our coffee for the first time. Here’s a link to the roaster we would like to buy: Aillio Bullet Roaster
What You Get
We’ve added three different contribution perks to thank our supporters for the incredible generosity you’ve shown so far. Depending on your contribution, you can earn up to a fridge magnet, a fresh bag of Home City Roast, and a premium designed ceramic coffee mug – check out our perks to learn more!
Note: If you contributed before our perks went live, don’t worry! We will be including all contributions in our perk fulfillments that meet the respective values. Thank you for all of the support!
By supporting us in our stage of infancy, you’ll be a key building block to the foundation of our roastery and will help us take the first step necessary in our goal of selling fresh Oklahoma roasted coffee to customers and cafes around the state and beyond. We are also seeking to provide fundraising initiatives to nonprofit organizations around the state – your support can make that a reality by starting the first ripple in a pond of both innovation and altruism.
Risks and Challenges
Our greatest challenge in launching a roastery involves transitioning from a home-roasted experience to a brick and mortar roastery qualified to provide fresh roasted batches in a commercial setting. We are actively engaged in the process and policies necessary to transition our roastery into such a physical setting. Funding an industrial roaster serves as key stepping stone to the path we have carved ahead.
Other Ways You Can Help
Some people simply cannot or are not prepared to financially contribute – that’s okay. We never want you to feel obligated to contribute. Sharing our funding campaign, reaching out for coffee tastings and supporting the experience provides just as powerful of an impact.
We would love to see our roasting experience evolve and grow for many years to come!
