Default Anyone Tried Boca Java Coffee

I was wondering if anyone has tried any of the Boca Java coffees. I wanted to get some feedback before ordering any. If you have tried any Im up for recomendations.

I ended up receiving Boca Java coffee for a few months when I didn't even sign up for it. I could still be getting it if I didn't cancel it. I don't even remember paying for any of it. Over all, it was pretty good coffee that I was brewing in a typical coffee maker(drip brew). They offer all types of coffee and the ones I received was pretty good coffee. But take my opinion with a grain of salt. I am the same guy that spent ten years drinking coffee that was burnt, cold, or sitting for hours on a warmer. So my tastes might be a little off these days.

I've thought about roasting my own but then I need to buy a roaster and don't have extra hobby funds atm. Had some of Todds home roasted and it was fantastic and the people at work gobbled it up.

I've thought about roasting once or twice. But even if I manage to get the necessary equipment, learn the fundamentals, and find the time to get halfway decent at it, I probably still won't be able to make coffee half as good as the local roaster I buy from now.
I think coffee roasting is something that requires real passion and commitment or don't even bother.

Or you could be wrong. It is really pretty easy, lots of fun and you will be able to roast a wide variety of coffees, better than your local roaster, because you will be doing to your own exact specs.
On the other hand, at least you ARE getting fresh roasted AND supporting your local economy

You just oughta jump right in. That little Fresh Roast is still my roaster of choice. Once you get started, you will never regret it.

Oh yes, you will regret it. Everytime I drink bad coffee, I regret the day I started home roasting. But I would not trade it.

Ya, well, there is that I rarely drink coffee out, but sometimes it can't be avoided.
