For this year’s Noise Fest IndieGoGo campaign I had done a similar perk to what I did last year. Last year I roasted 5 pounds of coffee and paired it with a unique recording. Two people purchased this perk so I ended up roasting 10 pounds of coffee which took up a good part of the day.
Despite the mild annoyance of roasting all day, I did enjoy offering this perk so I offered it again this year, but lowered the amount to 2 pounds of coffee per purchase. 2 pounds is more manageable with my coffee roasting setup. I roast coffee in small batches and in most cases I will roast for the weekly consumption of my household. Every so often I will roast for friends upon request. So it’s not a setup for serial batches.
This year, only one person purchased the perk so I only had to make one bag of coffee and one recording.
Here is the bag art.
