I've been looking into some magazines that are informative and also make me look jazzy by laying on the coffee table, haha jk on the latter.

I know there is roast magazine but i've heard that it's mostly for commercial roasting. Does anyone else have experience with any they really prefer?

We get Roast.  There's something useful to an "advanced amateur" roaster at least every other issue, which is three times a year.  It's worth it.  

Roast was an altogether better deal when they allowed subscribers open access to their archives.  There's some great stuff in there for beginners and amateurs written by Boot, etc.  

If there's something else, I'd like to know about it too.

I was thinking about Roast but am now a little weary knowing you don't get archive access.... Any idea why they'd move away from that?  Seems like a great way to allow people new to the subscription to catch up.

As I understand it, Roast allows subscribers free, online archive search and use going back a few years -- I'm not sure how many. After that, they want you to purchase the back copies. But, to be honest, I might have their policy totally wrong. You should ask them.  

Why the move away from open archives?  Don't know.

I also subscribe to Roast Magazine for the past year or so.  There's been a few issues that held little interest for me (the ones that were more focused on the business side of running a roastery/cafe) but on the whole I'm glad that I subscribed.

I would be interested in hearing of other periodicals that would also fill this niche.  

While not a magazine, you can do deep dives into the Sweet Maria's library and also check out their podcast and the resources section of the www.coffeeshrub.com site for coffee/roasting information.

Seems like there aren't many for roasting. How about coffee in general?
