Joel started Lake Effect Coffee Roaster in 2018 with the goal of roasting and supplying his friends and family with the best coffee. This hobby quickly turned into a passion when he began to realize how complex the industry canbe. Joel enjoys creating different blends in the sun-room of his house, a place he nicknamed the 'roast shack'.
Beyond the creativity, Joel really enjoys working with other businesses to create blends that highlight their characteristics. Joel hopes to keep Lake Effect Coffee Roaster reputable, grow as a roaster and continue learning everyday more about this business.
