Patton’s roasting career started in 2001 with a home coffee roaster given to him by his wife. He then moved on to a one-pound capacity roaster and a farmers market stand, home deliveries and a small kiosk in back of an Albertson’s in Pacific Beach. He now roasts beans on-site at his Bird Rock coffee shop. Read more: San Diego Community News Group – Hospitality star of the week Chuck Patton gets ready to roast in friendly competition.
