PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Perrysburg family is roasting coffee in their own garage, and the business is taking off.

It started when Richard Jambor was introduced to fresh-roasted coffee by a co-worker. That sparked his passion for roasting his own coffee, and the family began roasting coffee for themselves.

Last October, with the purchase of a large roaster and an interest from local businesses, the Maddie and Bella Coffee Company took off.

Jambor does the actual roasting of the coffee beans, his son Rich takes care of marketing, and his wife Susan is the official taste tester.

"The minute you taste it, you're hooked on it," Susan said.

They now hand-deliver coffee to six local markets and shops, and one downtown coffee shop. Every Sunday, the family gets together and takes care of all the orders for the week, and delivers about 40-50 pounds of coffee.

"Six months ago I was doing this as a hobby," Jambor said. "Now to have people telling us that it's fabulous…It's beyond belief."

Each bag of coffee is signed and dated by Jambor.
