I find it quite a advantage to home roast. you have the best of both worlds. The best is comparing your roast against the company's roast. you can dial it in pretty close. most company's will even be nice enough to give you the roasting parameters they use. You also have the oppertunity to ajust the profile a little bit either way to see why they chose the parameters they used. I only ever had one bad roast(the 1st one I done 3 years ago) it's not as hard as you think. The lower price is just a added bonus. after electricity or gas your price per pound is still lower than half than preroasted.paradise offers greens now too.I'm sure there is alot of overhead involved running a roastery.Insurance is probably a fortune along side of payroll so I can see why alot of higher prices are charged sometimes.another advantage to home roast, you can store greens over a year if done right, so that SO that was one of the best you ever had and no longer available by the roaster you can still have available to you.different lots of beans will have a different flavor profile. it will come close alot of times but will be missing that certain taste you desire.think of it a insurance for your tastebuds. sorry op for getting your post off topic.
