There's a dining establishment in Milwaukee at which you probably have never eaten. It has a kitchen which regularly serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The chef happily accommodates special requests, dietary needs and a variety of budgets. And he and his staff regularly serve fare that wouldn't be out of place in many of the city's best restaurants.

Like baking or winemaking, roasting coffee is both science and art. A ham-fisted roaster can easily mess up the science and destroy the coffee.

This I learned when I recently spent a day with the good folks at Valentine Coffee Roasters, 5918 W. Vliet St.
