Riversider started a coffee roasting business

Matt Sloan approaches coffee with a scientist’s eye. Tracking data on a computer monitor to his gleaming custom roasting oven in the basement of his Riverside home, Sloan searches for the right balance of heat and time to produce a consistent product.

That will be important in the coming days and weeks as he begins making the first local deliveries of his holiday blend of Sloan’s Coffee beans from Guatemala, Kenya and Ethiopia.

“In my ideal world, I would have subscribers [and] every Friday I would deliver the roast of the week if you wanted,” Sloan told the Landmark during an interview last week. “They drop it off at your house every Friday.”
