Topic: New image on Roasted Pic page... (6 msgs / 116 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I took the requested all-in-one photo of the roast levels. The higher 
res image of it is not going to be as detailed as the single images, 
but its a good reference. I tried to actually pick out what I believe 
to be the larger, longer seeds from each roast sample (I think it is 
Kona typica) so the size variation is a little less extreme than the 
individual photos. I should have done that in the first place, but 
after re-shooting 4 times , each taking about 2 hours, I am not doing 
it again!!!

Tom,
You are sooo cool. That is great.
Thanks for all the work,
Edward
p.s. I just realized that my sense of the original photos being 'washed out' was because I was seeing 300 dpi images on my monitor. When I went to photoshop and set the dpi to 72, the colors looked right. I guess I am a little unsophisticated and got fooled by 'apparent saturation' shift.

Tom -
That is a great shot! I like the precision that you use in selecting 
the beans for the
photo. It gives a good sense of the continuum and then down in the 
guide you see
close-ups of the individual stages. I found your original guide to be 
very helpful in
figuring out what the roasts were supposed to look like.
I still snicker at the coffee providers that put "French Roast" on the 
bag as if it is
a kind of coffee. My immediate reply is always, "French roast what?"

I like the Dunkin Donut commercials about their espresso being made from
"real espresso beans".
Staying on topic, I agree, the pics and descriptions on the new page are
great.

They must be using Coffea arabica var. espresso.
