I've had a batch of 20 done, but it drives up the cost per unit. It does allow some variation on how much torrefaction you want when you can discuss with the baker...

That cool you can even discuss that! I know the Hampton Bros do it for a lot of there tops and of course there are guitar factories that do it but outside of that I have no clue who does it. Iím totally fascinated by this process.
Thanks for the reply. Happy Thanksgiving!
