New Mexico Roastery Evacuated After Third Fire

A New Mexico coffee roaster evacuated some 34 people from his roastery and retail cafe last week as a fire  broke out during roasting.

No one was injured and the retail location was almost immediately reopened, but Milagro Coffee y Espresso owner Bernie Digman told the Las Cruces Sun-News that this was the third roaster fire at the location, which he said reflects a “very low” incidence rate.

“You can hear it,” Digman told the paper. “It sounds like a jet engine taking off.”

Digman, a former firefighter, further told the paper that the equipment simply needed a good cleaning and that a $75 fan replacement would have the roastery up and running within a day.
