Andrew Oakes had no idea the perks of being a speciality-blend coffee producer when he launched the Selinsgrove-based Fresh Roasted Coffee LLC in 2011. “I didn’t think I’d be hanging in Colombia, ” said Oakes, looking through photographs he took during his weeklong trip in late July to rate and purchase coffee directly from growers.
