Biodiesel-Fueled Coffee Roaster

The Vermont Coffee Company, known for their organic and fairtraded coffee, has just upgraded its coffee roasting machine to run on biodiesel fuel. The bio-roaster can roast the same amount of beans in four hours as the company's two older machines roasted in 10-12 hours running simultaneously. A local distributor, Jackman's, has agreed to supply the biodiesel to the Vermont Coffee Company. The company currently distributes just over one ton of fresh-roasted beans per week. :: Addison Independent via Land+Living
